With the Finals kicking off in Toronto, the Warriors are selling watch party tickets for Games 1 and 2 at the Oakland arena for $25 per person.

The team played all four games of the conference finals, and five straight overall, without the services of super star Kevin Durant.

"We'll see where it goes from here", Kerr said Monday.

She played a massive role in turning the Lynx into a championship-caliber organization and that will never be forgotten. "We talk about culture that Lindsay helped us to establish".

The disrespect shown Thompson could fuel an eruption by the neglected "Splash Brother" in the NBA Finals, Shaq signaled, calling Thompson's name first - before even addressing Green and Curry as keys to the series.

This NBA Finals should be one to remember, and ahead of the Game 1 tip-off here are three matchups to keep an eye on as the series progresses. When they host Game 3 of the NBA Finals, it'll have been 20 days since Golden State's last home game. Durant is averaging 34.2 points per game this post-season.

VanVleet said there's no player in the National Basketball Association who puts more pressure on opposing defences from the perimeter than Curry.

Al Jazeera's Kamal Hyder, reporting from Islamabad , said "Zardari has been a controversial figure" in Pakistani politics. National Accountability Bureau (NAB) spokesman Nawazish Ali said Zardari has been arrested, but did not provide details.

Defensively, Bogut gives the Warriors a strong presence at the rim, but in a matchup against Gasol and co, Kerr will likely utilise the likes of Looney and Bell for longer stretches to get out on the perimeter and close out the three-point threat.

And one way to do that, VanVleet said, is trying to get into Curry's grill. "At the end of the day just go out there and try to make it tough on him and challenge him as best I can".

With the Warriors hoisting plenty of three-pointers, it's not the first shot that gets you, it's the second and third. The odds are much better that we'll see DeMarcus Cousins for the first time since the first round of the playoffs.
