  • Harden, James top All-NBA team

Cleveland's Iman Shumpert tips a shot by Boston's Isaiah Thomas in Game 1 of the Celtics-Cavaliers series.

Such domination is no surprise to anyone.

As the dust settled on the National Basketball Association conference semi-finals, the last two teams from last year's NBA finals have emerged unblemished by any losses in their 2017 post-season records.

These one-sided playoffs are historic in nature. What does each team need in order to reach the NBA Finals in June?

However the playoffs end, there are a couple of teams in each Conference that, with a few improvements, can challenge these teams next season. LeBron James and the rest of the Cavs have been on break for more than a week now, since their clean sweep of the Toronto Raptors on May 8, as reported by Forbes.

Gibson scored 31 points in the Cavaliers' series-clinching win over the Pistons that night, including 19 in the fourth quarter.

After sweeping Utah and the Los Angeles Clippers, San Antonio took a 2-0 lead over Oklahoma City in the Western Conference finals.

Due to the stiffer competition out West, the towering forward has played four more games than James in these playoffs. But after sweeping Portland, Seattle and Phoenix to win the Western Conference title, the Lakers were swept by the Detroit Pistons in the Finals. Oklahoma City went on to lose in five games to Miami in the NBA Finals.

"Everyone talks about the Spurs moving the ball well and getting the open looks, but Golden State are doing exactly that to them".

Curry leads all players with 39 three-pointers made and is shooting 47.9 percent from inside the arc as well, his numbers might drop slightly due to the intense defense that the Spurs play on the perimeter.

That's a sign of dominance by particular teams if you're an optimist, but a sign of disparity if you're a realist.
