Andre Iguodala to miss Game 1 of NBA Finals with leg contusion

Andre Iguodala to miss Game 1 of NBA Finals with leg contusion

BRUCE Bowen is in town to catch the first two games of the NBA Finals between Golden State and Cleveland with Filipino fans on Friday at the Eastwood Activity Center and on June 4 at Buffalo Wild Wings in Glorietta.

The Warriors said Iguodala, 34, who missed the last four games of the Western Conference finals after suffering a left lateral leg contusion against the Houston Rockets, continues to make progress and will be re-evaluated prior to Game 2.

James played all 82 games this season, a career first, and during his finals streak has played 164 playoff games - the equal of two full extra seasons. After being very correct about not being afraid of the Raptors, and slightly less correct about not being afraid of the Celtics, here are three reasons why I will still be able to sleep at night despite the Cleveland Cavaliers upcoming match-up with the reigning National Basketball Association superteam, the Golden State Warriors.

So, understandably, he's going to have a lot to write about in that eventual book - he just needs to figure out where to place it.

Love was still in the league's concussion protocol as of Wednesday afternoon when the Cavs arrived at Finals media day, preventing the forward from speaking to reporters, but he did participate in shooting drills with his teammates during the open portion of Cleveland's practice session.

Game 1 of the 2018 NBA Finals begins on May 31, with a matchup we know all too well.

Paul and James are longtime friends, and the prospect of the two teaming up to contend for a championship has always been rumored. You just wonder if he's ever going to run out of gas.

Iguodala, a member of the USA 2012 Olympic gold medal team, is in his 14th National Basketball Association season and fifth with the Warriors, with career averages of 12.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists a game. Smith needs to take every last bit of available space away from the ultra-quick-releasing Thompson and not let him get shots off. "His ability to react to the ball either in the flight or while you're dribbling or while you pick the ball up".

"I'm still not sure", Lue added.

How many will they have to play against the Cavs?

That said, there are still plenty of reasons to watch the NBA Finals!

"We've taken some money on LeBron as well, and a bigger one on Thompson to knock him down from 25-1 to 20-1", Murray said. "But he is in the protocol still, so we'll see how he feels".
