(AP Photo/Ben Margot) OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson carried the 73-win Warriors right back to the NBA Finals, as Golden State rallied from a 3-1 series deficit to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 96-88 on Monday night in Game 7 of the Western Conference finals. Curry scored 36 points with seven 3-pointers to finish with an NBA-record 32 in a seven-game series, while Thompson added 21 points and six 3s, two days after his record 11 3-pointer


TORONTO (AP) -- LeBron James scored 33 points, Kevin Love had 20 points and 12 rebounds and the Cleveland Cavaliers secured their second straight trip to the NBA Finals by beating the Toronto Raptors 113-87 in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals on Friday night. It's the third finals appearance in team history for the Cavaliers. Cleveland lost to Golden State in six games last year and got swept by San Antonio in 2007. For James, it's his sixth straight trip to the finals, including four with Miami. He finished with 11 rebounds and six assists. Kyrie Irving had 30 points and J.R. Smith had 15 for the Cavaliers, who will face the winner of the Golden State-Oklahoma City series on June 2.

Cavs move within one step of NBA Finals

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said game 6 of the Eastern Conference NBA Finals would be a business trip after the Wine & Gold demolished the visiting Toronto Raptors 116-78 at the Q on Wednesday night. It was a warm like summer night for the fans at the Cavs Fest with temperatures hovering over 80 degrees, and inside the Q when the game started the Cavs were just as hot. Three Cavs stars scored 20 points or more, led by the resurgent Kevin Love’s 25, LeBron James added 23 and Kyrie Irving finished with 21, but it was the Cavs suffocating defense that was the difference in this critical game 5. The Cavs can clinch their second straight conference title and trip to the NBA Finals with a win in Game 6

Is it time to panic yet?

The beloved Cleveland Cavaliers began the Eastern Conference Finals as such a prohibitive favorite to dismiss the energy strained Toronto Raptors that the question was not a matter of if, by rather a matter of when. Would it be another four game sweep? Five games at the most, right? Well, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, dogs and cats, deer’s and squirrels, if it does happen it will be at the least six games after the Raptors rose from the dead to go north and take two straight on their home court. The Raptors looked like a tired basketball team when last seen at the Q, and they should have been after two grueling rounds of seven game series. However, when they got home it was an entire

Cleveland challenged to increase minimum wage

Councilman Jeff Johnson stands with petitioners seeking to a minimum wage increase in Cleveland. (Staff photo by Rhonda Crowder) How much does it cost to live in a decent life in Cleveland? Can a single individual survive off less than $16k a year? Should Cleveland raise the minimum wage from $8.10/hr to $15? And, if so, will it hurt or help our economy? These are the questions Clevelanders are debating as the city has been challenged to increase the minimum wage by Raise Up, a group who collected more than 28,000 signatures in support of their proposal in less than two weeks. The proposal calls for this increase to take effect in January. The working poor want the increase while the busines

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) -- As the score became more and more lopsided in Toronto, LeBron James started to change. And as the final seconds ticked toward all zeroes on the clock, James took one last look at the scoreboard at the bottom of the TV screen and decided it was time to get serious again. "Uh, 114-86," James said, relaying the Raptors' huge lead over the Miami Heat in the waning moments of their Game 7. "That's when I flipped the switch." James and the Cavaliers are back in playoff mode. Bring on Toronto. After a week of waiting for an opponent, the Cavs finally learned they'll face the Raptors, who clobbered Miami 116-89 on Sunday to earn their first trip to the Eastern Conference f

Your wait…Your Fate… Is this the year for Cavs?

Allow for me to preference that I am NOT a native of Northeast Ohio, but since arriving to Cleveland more than 11 months ago from Los Angeles, nothing could be clearer than the desperation of the Cavs fans wanting to finally win their first NBA championship. Now that the Cavs have won eight consecutive playoff games, sweeping past both the Detroit Pistons and then Atlanta Hawks, shattering the record for 3 pointers with 27 in game 2 and then closing it out on the edge, the momentum is building. During the second home games against the Hawks, the arena workers at the Q were already sizing up their Eastern Final opponent. “I think it will be Miami and Dwayne Wade?” This is the same town that b

NOW IS THE TIME FOR THIS NATION TO FULFILL ITS PROMISE!!! My fellow Americans, public sentiment demands change. The people are angry…they feel the system is corrupt and that they have been betrayed by their elected representatives. So they reject and distrust the government…they reject the establishment, which is the system, they reject the parties, they reject the party’s lying politicians unkept promises and distortions of truth. All the presidential candidates, from both parties Republican and Democratic, agree unanimously that the system is corrupt. So, with the people’s feelings of betrayal and corruption of the system, along with their (the presidential candidates) perspective leader
