Cavs, Warriors NBA Finals ticket market strong despite repetitive matchup

Expectations are high for this third installment - maybe even as high as Ali-Frazier III or "Return of the Jedi" - especially after the Cavs stormed through the Eastern Conference, and the Warriors became the first team to win all 12 games in the West to cruise to the Finals.

A press release from the Cavaliers says Nike and the team are creating a logo suite that will complement the look of the new Cavaliers uniforms which will be unveiled later this summer. "I think the world has been waiting for this to finally get here".

This NBA season has been one of the most entertaining in recent memory, even if the end result is all-too predictable.

After the Cavaliers and Warriors split the last two NBA Finals, the first championship rubber match in the league's history has been the expectation since Cleveland beat the New York Knicks on October 25 while Golden State loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

Following a barrage of long-distance shots from point guard Kyrie Irving and power forward Kevin Love, James pulled up for and buried a left-wing triple, which moved him past Jordan atop the NBA Playoffs scoring list.

"Every time Golden State has a few days off, they come out a little cold", Fratto said.

The odds are stacked against them, but these Cavs don't believe they're underdogs. Who do you think will win the NBA Finals this year? With two titles in three years, they could be revered with some of the NBA's all-time great teams. The Cavaliers are underdogs in the series, and don't have home court advantage.

Iguodala has struggled mightily shooting the three in the playoffs, and he shot just 30% from deep in last year's Finals. The team isn't just playing for their own satisfaction but for that of the fans. "I don't want to feel what I felt previous year, and I'm going to do everything in my power to attack every game with that kind of perspective".

James and Irving should have no problem getting to the rim against Golden State, and Thompson should dominate the boards.

"Everybody's excited about it, but it's still kind of business as usual, we're not finished yet type of attitude, which is great", Warriors forward Draymond Green said. "And hopefully we keep it going, but we fully respect and are aware that this team that we're playing, they're the champions and we're not", Kerr said.

Thompson, arguably the best shooter in the National Basketball Association after Curry, has missed 42 of his 66 attempts behind the arc this postseason but has contributed in other areas.

"Well, I mean, it's inevitable", Irving said. "So I feel great". But just like there hasn't been time to watch and celebrate past success, Thompson isn't about to get caught up in the hoopla of the threequel either.

He was also one win away from returning to the Finals past year with Oklahoma City but they squandered a 3-1 series lead to Golden State, the team he joined a little over a month later. "Anyone else is not going to be able to handle him, just like they couldn't handle Kawhi Leonard in Game 1 (of the Western Conference finals)".

This series also features 11 players who have been named All-Stars in their careers, including seven this year.
