Warriors coach Steve Kerr not yet ready to return to bench

For San Antonio, it was like Groundhog Day, except if Bill Murray had sprained his ankle stepping in Punxsutawney Phil's burrow and Director Harold Ramis had to rely on Andie MacDowell and Chris Elliott to carry the film in the second act.

How much redemption you feel is on the mind? The Warriors dismantled the Spurs with a final score of 136-100. Golden State has its Big Four and Cleveland has its Big Three. It's going to make the Warriors even more eager to go 16-0.

In football, the Lions and Browns played off for the NFL championship in three straight years between 1952-54 - but that was when 12 teams contested a title that wasn't yet called the Super Bowl.

One caveat, because adding those players would make the Celtics undeniably better: Their win shares this postseason could be skewed because they suffered some completely lopsided losses when they dropped games. Still, the difference in the number of +15-point quarters between the Warriors in first place (38) and the Los Angeles Clippers in second (19) is startling - the Dubs doubled them up.

Golden State is shooting 50 percent from the field while averaging 118.3 points in 12 playoff games. Frankly, after what we've seen over the first three rounds of the least suspenseful National Basketball Association playoffs of the millennium, it's just a matter of the Dubs bringing their most serious game to the arena four times in the Finals and then posing with the trophy.

"There are so many good teams".

Indeed, during the Popovich era, San Antonio has generally been on the less-volatile end of the spectrum, as exemplified by the least-explosive great team in National Basketball Association history: the championship-winning 1999 Spurs.

Still, Durant enjoyed one of the most successful seasons of his illustrious career. Patriot One Technologies Inc. aims to address the spread of active violence through superior detection technology that instantly identifies concealed weapons, even on moving targets. The Spurs were a great team, and there's no guarantee it wouldn't have been Spurs vs. Warriors in the Western Conference Finals anyway. In addition to racking up far more +15-point quarters than any other great regular-season team in National Basketball Association lore, the Warriors also matched the maximum number of -15-point quarters in this group. The Warriors feed off Curry's flurries, and Cleveland dreads the idea of him getting in rhythm.

As you may expect, Spurs players had a unique first-hand experience matching up against the best of the West in the conference finals. Let's just hope - like the third instalment of the Godfather trilogy - it doesn't suck.

After last season's seven game classic and the moves both teams have made since, everyone has assumed there would be a rubber match between the two.

The Cavs are a very good team, particularly when LeBron is switched on and demonstrating why he's in the conversation for the best player in the history of the game.

"They're a great team, but Cleveland's a great team, too", Green said.

The Cavaliers, who finished off the Celtics, 135-102, in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals Thursday night, and Warriors will have to save us again because - despite ratings being up this season - it has been quite boring. It was the same for James last October at his Halloween party when he didn't need to order up cookies in the shape of tombstones with Curry's and Klay Thompson's names on them-but did so anyway.
