The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors became the first two teams in league history to meet for three straight NBA Finals last June and Cavs coach Tyronn Lue says don't count both teams out for making it happen a fourth straight time this year. With Cleveland trailing the Boston Celtics 3-2 in the Eastern Conference heading into Friday's Game 6 and Golden State down 3-2 to the Houston Rockets in the West, Lue expressed confidence in both teams to make history again. “It can be tough, but you've got to be mentally tough,” Lue said pregame Friday. “If you want to win, that's what it takes. Nothing is easy, and we understand that. I'm pretty sure Golden State understands that. But Rudy Tomjanovich said, ‘Never underestimate the heart of a champion.' Until we're dead in our grave, until Golden State is dead in their grave, it's not over. I'm pretty sure both teams are thinking that way.” Tomjanovich, the former Houston Rockets coach, delivered his that speech during the Larry O'Brien Trophy presentation after the 1995 NBA Finals when the Rockets won their second consecutive championship by sweeping the upstart Orlando Magic. Houston won that year after entering the playoffs as the No. 6 seed. “I have one thing to say to those non-believers: Don't ever underestimate the heart of a champion,” Tomjanovich said.

The Celtics are wearing their home white uniforms on the road for Game 6, maybe hoping to reverse their road fortunes (1-6 overall). This is the first time they've worn white on the road this postseason. Boston is 10-0 at home.
