Dubs in 5.

IMG_0865Many people know not to bet against Lebron James, and having said that many people in this years NBA Finals didn’t bet against him and the Cavs. Yes, there are many factors that one would think the Cavs would win. The stat that really caught my eye was a basic offensive and defense efficiency. The Cavs are one of the slowest teams on the NBA. They also were one of the worst Defensive teams, as we all  saw in the month of March.  Not only were the Dubs the best offensive team, they were one of the best defensive teams as well. This was the tiebreaker for me. I saw the Warriors winning this one in 5 Games. Daylan Rappley had Dubs in 5, Robert Poore had Dubs in 5. I would say we told you so….. but we did tell you so.

NBA Preview Golden State at Boston

Warriors are in Boston for the 2nd game of a 4 away game stretch. Warriors coming off of a win at Toronto 127-121. This will be the 2nd of a quick home game stand for the Celtics. The Celtics record coming into this game with a 6-5 record. Golden State having a 9-2 record. Golden State are meeting the Celtics for the first time this season. Speculation has come about Klay Thompson be traded to the Celtics in return for Jae Crowder and Avery Bradley. This would be a smart trade because Klay has been struggling and this would give the Warriors more depth and height. The Warriors are coming into this game a 5-6 favorite to win. To me if the Celtics move the ball well and have a good shooting percentage they will have a good chance to win. I have the Warriors 112-94. Draymond Green will have a break-out game. The game will be live at 8pm on ESPN.
