LeBron James says there is a not-so-secretingredient -- beyond a talented roster thatfeatures reigning MVP Stephen Curry -- to theGolden State Warriors success: avoiding injuries.
"I think it comes with a lot of health," James saidwhen asked about the Warriors tying the all-timemark for best start to a season at 15-0. "Theyvebeen healthy. Theyve been the most healthy teamIve ever seen in NBA history, and they have great talent. Those guys all play for one commongoal and thats to win."
Other than center Andrew Bogut, who has dealt with a variety of injuries in the last severalseasons, the Warriors core has mostly managed to stay on the court.
James said that continuity in the lineup has led to consistency in their play.
"Theyve just been consistent," James said. "I think the most impressive thing is the waythey just theyve been playing at a high level, man, for so long."
The Cleveland Cavaliers, meanwhile, are down four of their top eight rotation players at themoment with Kyrie Irving (left knee), Iman Shumpert (right wrist), Timofey Mozgov (rightshoulder) and Mo Williams (right ankle) all sidelined.
"You cant control injuries. The one thing you can control is what youre doing out on thefloor, how well youre playing, how hard youre playing and how much youre sacrificing andgiving to your teammates." James said.
