    2016 NBA Finals: Cavs vs. Warriors

    If this thread feels like Deja-Vu, it's because it is!

    We have a rematch of last year NBA championship. Last year Warriors took it in 6, you can read the thread:
    http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum...vs-vs-Warriors

    So here we go again:


    But this year the Cavs are not missing key players, Mr. Curry may not be 100% either, he was out for a couple of games during the play-offs.

    First game is set for tomorrow, ABC network is broadcasting all games, here is the schedule:
    GM 1: CLE at GSW, Jun. 2, 9:00 PM ET ABC |
    GM 2: CLE at GSW, Jun. 5, 8:00 PM ET ABC |
    GM 3: GSW at CLE, Jun. 8, 9:00 PM ET ABC |
    GM 4: GSW at CLE, Jun. 10, 9:00 PM ET ABC |
    GM 5: CLE at GSW, Jun. 13 ABC | If Needed
    GM 6: GSW at CLE, Jun. 16 ABC | If Needed
    GM 7: CLE at GSW, Jun. 19 ABC | If Needed

    So, who will win?

    It's worth to mention that last year 2 pollers picked the warriors in 6
    Though they didn't get an imaginary medal, they sure got bragging rights, I know Ti-Amie was one of the two.

    I always think of Ti as Titanium!
    Titanium Amie has a nice sound to it!

    I am picking LeBron and company in 6

    I can't help but think OKC took something out of GS.

    Cleveland has not played a team like GSW since April. GSW dealt with OKC and a very underrated Portland.
    Yes, OKC took the air out of GSW, but then they came back. That will give them confidence.
    CLE needs to take one out of the first two in Oakland. If not, nobody will take 4 out of 5 against GSW.

    This might end up not being as competitive as we thought. Curry and Thompson played terribly last night, and the Dubs were up by 20 before relenting.
    Maybe it will come down to match-ups. And the Cavs don't have the length of the Thunder.
    Then again, my Spurs blew the Thunder away in game 1, and I know what happened.

    Just like last year, Golden State bench was a huge factor except being led by Livingston, who has been plagued by injuries, instead of the 2015 Finals MVP Iggy.

    Mr. Irving wins the battle of super-guards but loses game, The defending champions lead series one game to nil.

    I enjoyed the firsts two games because I am rooting for the Warriors. But from the basketball point of view, so far the three games have been so one sided that they have been boring.
