The Cleveland Cavaliers can pretty much end this series with a victory here. LeBron James is averaging 29.9 points and 8.3 assists while J.R. Smith is averaging 12.9 points and 4.7 rebounds. Timofey Mozgov is grabbing 7.3 rebounds and Iman Shumpert is dishing 1.2 assists. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 42.8 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from deep in these playoffs. LeBron continues to put the Cavs on his back, as he’s averaging 41 points, 12 rebounds and 8.3 assists in this series. Matthew Dellavedova has been the x-factor on the defensive end and is coming off a 20-point performance in game three. The Cavs have won 20 of their last 22 home games.
The Warriors are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. Eastern Conference and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Thursday games. The Cavaliers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Warriors are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings.
Again, I told you that the Warriors messed up by losing a game in Oakland. The Cavs are just on a mission to end Cleveland's championship drought, and I'm not sure this soft Golden State team has enough to turn things around. Surprised we're getting plus money again, but hey, I love free money. Take the ML, as the Cavs roll once again.
