Two of the NBA's best meet in Oakland for Christmas

The Cavaliers had Game 3 in hand, but the Warriors closed an 11-point gap with a little more than three minutes left in the game to secure the victory.

Even so, James admitted he's still excited about facing the Warriors again. "You have the talent and the marketable players, so I understand why they're picking those teams", said Sacramento veteran Vince Carter.

The Cavaliers take on the Warriors at 3 p.m. ET. I don't want to say 'next.' How many seasons is it for KD?

"I do not know what this means, but we do have a lot of really good young players", he said.

'Mamma Mia' Sequel Trailer Shocks Fans With Apparent Main Character Death
We see Donna meet the younger versions of Harry (played by Colin Firth in Momma Mia! ), Sam ( Pierce Brosnan ) and Rosie. The preview makes it seem like Streep's character was killed off in the film, though that has yet to be confirmed.

"I understand that it's probably not everybody's favorite event, people that bust their tail and work in the arenas and are there all the time, and maybe media and everybody else", Stevens said. "... It's my turn to ... enjoy being one of the best players in the world. He was definitely the difference-maker".

"It was a big-time shot", said James, who went on to become the first player in Finals history to average a triple-double for the series, albeit in a losing effort. Stephen Curry is sidelined with an ankle sprain, and newly acquired Isaiah Thomas is still rehabbing a hip injury which has kept him out for all of the Cavaliers' season. But James acknowledged the excitement the matchup conjures up regardless. "We have a dynasty in the making in Golden State, we have a team trying to challenge them in their own conference, or a couple teams in San Antonio and Houston, and LeBron is still rolling". He's led the team to three straight Finals and will most likely make that a fourth straight this season.

Carter was one of those players who fans never exhausted of seeing at the beginning of his career, a time when it was not possible to hire a service to watch all the games in the league and could not look for the best plays on the Internet.

It will be the 12th Christmas Day game of James' 15-year career and the eighth he has played on the road. "But being in the Staples Center has always been pretty good".
