The truly great LeBron James will try and lead his Cavs teammates by the hand past the greatest team that money has bought. So it was for the Warriors this night in Houston: Draymond Green, the Warriors' 6-foot-7 center, was not shooting the ball so much as heaving it like a paving stone.

Waiting in the wings are LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers for a fourth consecutive year.

The Warriors hold the head-to-head advantage, having captured championships in 2015 and 2017 while the Cavaliers were victorious in 2016 behind a historic comeback after trailing in the series 3-1.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are going to need all the help they can get if they want any chance of upsetting the Golden State Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals. Spurred by the Warriors iconic third-quarter runs, the Rockets wilted in the last two games. The Western Conference Finals taught us four important lessons that Lue should adopt for the NBA Finals.

Said Warriors coach Steve Kerr on Wednesday: "He's frustrated".

This is the soul-crushing trick Golden State plays on its opponents. But their young, strong squad still made it to the Eastern Conference finals and would have come out victorious if Bron hadn't put up 40 plus games in three out of four of Cleveland's victories. He also served a bridge between the Warriors' All-Stars and a bench unit that has lacked consistency. "So you go through the playoffs and things happen, and you've got to be able to bounce back no matter what and keep going".

Over the summer and before the season started, there was a lot of skepticism surrounding how the two ball-dominant, alpha dogs would play alongside one another.

It will take a Herculean effort to beat the Warriors.
