We are heading to Game 7 in the NBA Finals as the Cavaliers won yet again to set up a winner takes all clash on Sunday night. This was not how the season was supposed to pan out for the Warriors but they now stand on the brink of seeing their glorious season end in disappointment as opposed to the huge success that everybody expected.
Golden State Warriors 101 – Cleveland Cavaliers 115
LeBron James managed to serve up 41 points and 11 assists in the course of the evening and once again he dragged his team to where they needed to be. Kyrie Irving managed to add 23 points as well, and these two players were at the heart of the pulsating action. The Cavaliers started at a great pace and by the end of the first quarter, they held a 20 point lead. The Warriors were always going to battle back but they couldn’t bounce back enough to prevent the series being tied at 3-3 going into the final game.
This was the second time the Cavs saved the series in four days and if they can clinch the title on Sunday, it will be the first time a team has overcome a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals. It will also be the first major sporting Championship for Cleveland since 1964. The team has the weight, hopes and expectations of the city on their shoulders but they have the right man to carry that weight. When asked about the deciding game and the fact that it’ll be played out in California, LeBron said; “One more game left. I’ll play it anywhere.”
A bad night for Steph Curry
Steph Curry was ejected with more than 4 minutes left on the clock after he committed his sixth personal foul. The player managed to grab 30 points while Klay Thompson served up 25 points in the loss. These two players will still think that they can be celebrating come the end of the week and season but there is no denying that the Warriors are wobbling at the worst possible moment.
Curry got tossed with 4:22 left after he was called for his sixth personal foul, cursed several times at an official and fired his mouthpiece into the front row, striking a fan. Curry finished with 30 points, Klay Thompson had 25 and Draymond Green, back from a one-game suspension, had 10 rebounds.
So it all comes down to the final game and the bookmakers still believe that the Golden State Warriors are going to win the tournament. They are at home and you don’t expect the Warriors to lose three games in a row do you? Then again, it’s a completely one-off game now, a winner takes all scenario and it really could go either way.
With this in mind, look to take Cleveland Cavaliers at +5.5, which you can find at odds of 1.90. With both teams being desperate to win, you should be looking to go OVER 206.5, in the Over/Under market and this is going to be available at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
