Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith doesn't even want to contemplate the horror of life without the chance to play in a fourth straight NBA Finals against the Warriors.

The best-of-seven series against the Cleveland Cavaliers begins Thursday night (8 ET, ABC).

May 26, 2018; Oakland, CA, USA; Houston Rockets guard James Harden (left) and guard Chris Paul (right) on the bench against the Golden State Warriors in the second half in game six of the Western conference finals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at Oracle Arena. On the Warriors, Curry is the more important player. That will be the focus of our series keys - of course, with the focus still being on Golden State. The NBA had its most-watched conference finals since 2012, as both teams had to rally from 3-2 deficits to win Game 7s on the road.

Andre Iguodala is one of the Warriors' best defenders against Cavaliers superstar LeBron James. This time around, the defending champion Warriors are bigger favorites than they've ever been. Either of them can get hot and carry the team at a moment's notice.

Coach Tyronn Lue said Wednesday he was hopeful Love could be cleared, and if he successfully leaped a few hurdles, which he has, he would be inserted into the starting lineup.

"Splintered" is how Stephen Curry described what he feared could happen in the second quarter of Game 7 at Houston, with the Warriors pushed to the brink by the Rockets.

James said that he and Iguodala were almost teammates but he was picked by Philadelphia 9th in the 2004 NBA Draft one spot before Cleveland would have taken him. Ironically, the Sixers won that game. "'You have so many people looking up to you, you have so many kids to inspire, and you, yourself, you have always talked about be as great as you can be every day, ' so I kind of hit that switch before the trade deadline". "The shooting is what has really gotten better in the last few years". Kevin Durant won the award previous year and Iguodala won it in 2015, but before anyone gets too far down that road, it would be wise to remember that LeBron James won it in 2016 as his team upset the heavily-favored Warriors, who had gotten off to a 3-1 start in the series.

Iguodala relishes the challenge of a 4th consecutive finals showdown with James and the Cavaliers, the first time in U.S. pro sports such a "four-peat" has happened.
