The Cleveland Cavaliers need another victory here in order to force a game seven on Sunday night. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 104.4 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 96.2 points on 45.5 percent shooting. LeBron James is averaging 24.6 points and 9.2 rebounds while Kyrie Irving is averaging 24.4 points and 4.9 assists. Tristan Thompson is grabbing 8.6 rebounds and J.R. Smith is dishing 1.3 assists. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 41.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72 percent from the free throw line. The Cavaliers are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.1 rebounds per game. The Cleveland Cavaliers have won 15 of their last 19 home games.
The Warriors are 11-1 ATS in their last 12 Thursday games and 34-15-2 ATS in their last 51 games playing on 2 days rest. The Cavaliers are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 NBA Championship games. The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Cleveland.
The Cavs play extremely well on their home court and that should continue to be the case with Kyrie now as confident as ever. It's going to be a crazy crowd in Cleveland knowing that they'd be one win away from winning their first city title in 50-something years. You have to like the momentum swing on the Cavs side right now.
I see a game seven coming.
