It’s unfortunate the finals of the 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee fall on the same night as Game 1 of any NBA Finals, much less the much-anticipated Cavs vs. Warriors III series.

If you missed any of the Spelling Bee words in Thursday’s knockout round leading up to the championship round tonight (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) but still want to get revved up for Game 1 of the NBA Finals (9 p.m., ABC), they are all used below in a preview of Cavs-Warriors. You’re welcome.
The Warriors need Klay Thompson’s shot to take its midseason form to feel better about beating the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. The sphygmogram will be off the charts for Game 1 at Oakland’s Oracle Arena on Thursday night.
Fans in the Bay Area and its purlieu can’t wait for the one of the most anticipated rematches in playoff history. Don’t let Mike Brown’s alopecia fool you: He’s ready for revenge, too.

The much-anticipated third part of a trilogy between Cleveland and Golden State begins when Game 1 of the NBA Finals tips off June 1. The Cavaliers still have the Big Three in LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. The Warriors added Kevin Durant to their star-studded core that features Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
Does it get any bigger than that in any other sport? We asked the same question a few years ago before the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight and got the first Cavs-Warriors installment in return.
The trade market for Paul George has changed significantly since last season’s trade deadline, now that he has reportedly informed the Pacers he will enter free agency in 2018 with his sights set on the Lakers. Los Angeles is looking to acquire George this summer rather than waiting until July 2018, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.
Can the Lakers now land Paul George by offering Thursday’s No. 27 and 28 picks and either Julius Randle or Jordan Clarkson? They’re trying.
