James said the incident "just goes to show that racism will always be a part of the world, a part of America". Andre Iguodala was Finals MVP, mostly for guarding James.

Golden State has also had first-quarter scoring totals of 35 and 40 points and third-period totals of 33 and 35 while outscoring Cleveland 75-64 in the former and by a whopping 68-44 in the latter.

The other guy the Cavs really need to get contributing is Brampton native Tristan Thompson .
All eight of Zimmer's eye surgeries have come since November 1 of previous year, and the final one led to him reluctantly agreeing to take time away from the team.

James is averaging 28.5 points, 13.0 rebounds and 11.0 assists in the series - the man he's been guarding, most often Durant, has gone 17-for-27 from the field over two games - but he hasn't gotten almost enough help at the offensive end.

I'd promised that, if we won the Champions League and I scored a goal, I'd do it. Here, we look at the numbers behind Ronaldo's remarkable feat.

Durant completes the picture of the Warriors as a team to be reckoned with in conversations regarding the all-time best (and certainly the all-time most entertaining). And oh, man, Kyrie Irving - he had a wretched first two games of the Finals a year ago. Here, the pair came up against each other. The problem was that Curry might have double-dribbled on that possession.
Steph Curry and Kevin Durant upstaged LeBron James again in Sunday's 132-113 victory at Oracle Arena as the Warriors claimed a 2-0 series lead. 20 in all, as opposed to the Cavaliers nine TO's, but Golden State scored 23 points off the Cavs' nine turnovers, while Cleveland managed just 14 points off the Warriors 20 TO's.

Fourth in the final round of qualifying in North and Central America and the Caribbean, the USA plays Trinidad and Tobago on Thursday at Commerce City, Colorardo, then is at Mexico three days later.
