That being said, the Spurs need more than just the proverbial wing and a prayer.
It seemed as though Gregg Popovich had figured something out. The game came and went almost too quickly for the human eye, and the rest of the night was just a matter of waiting for the Inevitable Express to pull into the station.
Only eight playoff games this season have been decided by three points or less, while 40 have been decided by 10 points or more - a rate significantly higher than the National Basketball Association average over the last 30 years. James and Westbrook each got 99 of a possible 100 first-team votes.
"We haven't seen an increase in action in that scenario, but we are seeing smart money on the Spurs for both game and first half spread", says Scott Cooley of Bookmaker.eu, who admits the trend is "pretty cool". "That's how we feel".
James scored 38 points, grabbed nine rebounds and made seven assists against the Celtics in game one, giving him 35 or more in five consecutive games and at least 30 in seven as he raises his game the nearer he gets to reaching a seventh consecutive NBA Finals. Golden State Warriors Game 2 Start? That's why this injury just really sucks.

But as we saw with LeBron in the last two NBA Finals, one superstar gone Super Saiyan can be enough to combat three superstars.
The Warriors expect the Spurs will be tougher at AT&T Center, but if Leonard isn't ready, that belief still might be lacking.
Watching great players overcome great obstacles is the best version of sports.
Every ticket for every game has been sold so far; it was the fourth straight year all first-round games were sold out and the third straight year where all conference semifinal tickets were purchased. We thought only LeBron could accomplish that sort of feat, and maybe that's true, but Kawhi may have been on the brink of his moment.
