Why Pick The Cleveland Cavaliers To Beat The Warriors?
Lebron James is the King. Although Steph Curry took home his second straight MVP trophy this season, it’s been King James who has dominated in the NBA Finals. Coming off of a 41 point, 16 rebound and 7 assist performance in Game 5, Lebron wasn’t expected to be even better in Game 6. But that’s what he was. Lebron dominated. He scored 41 points again. He grabbed 8 rebounds. He dished 11 assists. Lebron is showing the world why he’s the greatest basketball player on the planet.
Why Pick The Golden State Warriors To Beat The Cavs
Golden State is at home for Game 7. The Warriors never looked in sink in Game 6. From the opening tip, the Warriors appeared out of sorts. Steph Curry and Kyle Thompson tried desperately to lead the Warriors comeback but it wasn’t going to happen. Lebron wouldn’t let it. It got so bad that Steph Curry ended up fouling out of the game. He lost his cool towards the end of the battle by throwing his mouthpiece.
The Warriors return to Oracle Arena on Sunday night. Expect Golden State to be a much more confident team on June 19.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
Before the series started everyone was picking the Warriors to repeat as champs, but the Cavaliers have shown they can keep up and shut down the Splash Bros. Sometimes a team figures out another team in a 7 game series. Once it happens, the team that has figured out the other team can’t lose. I truly believe this is what has happened in this 7 game series.
I think that Lebron James and the rest of the Cavaliers have figured out the Golden State Warriors. The Cavs are defending the three-point line much better than they did in the first 2 games of the series. Lebron is driving to the basket. Everybody is playing with more fire.
So what team is my expert pick to win game 7? Golden State is one of the best basketball teams ever assembled. But the Cavs know how to beat the Warriors. They did it in Game 5. They did it in Game 6. I think they’ll do it in Game 7.
