The Golden State Warriors can win their fifth NBA title in franchise history with a victory here. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 108.9 points on 46 percent shooting and allowing 103.3 points on 42.6 percent shooting. Klay Thompson is averaging 24.7 points and 3.8 rebounds while Stephen Curry is averaging 25.3 points and 5.6 assists. Draymond Green is grabbing 9.7 rebounds and Shaun Livingston is dishing 3.4 assists. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 39.5 percent from beyond the arc and 73.7 percent from the free throw line. The Warriors are allowing 34.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.8 rebounds per game. The Golden State Warriors have won 13 of their last 15 home games.
The Cavaliers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 Sunday games. The Warriors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Sunday games and 34-15-2 ATS in their last 51 games playing on 2 days rest. The Cavaliers are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Golden State.
The Cavs are oozing with confidence right now while the Warriors look a little shell shocked and worried a tad. Also, Golden State has no Bogut and now a banged up Andre Iguodala. With little size and physical play in the paint, the Cavs will continue to crash the boards and eat near the basket. I'm also not betting against LeBron in a game seven, especially with the way he's playing right now. I think the Cavs win this game outright, but I'll take the points just to be safe.
See you folks next season!
