25/05/2015 01:30 – Atlanta Hawks @ Cleveland Cavaliers
Things are starting to get exciting in the NBA Conference Finals and even though it is Memorial Weekend in the United States, there is no let-up in the basketball action. The Warriors are in full control of their series and the Hawks and the Cavaliers clash in the East in a game that could have a massive impact on who makes it through to the NBA Finals.
The Golden State Warriors know that they need just one more win to book their place in the NBA Finals thanks to their big win in Game 3 on Saturday. The 80-115 win in Houston places the Warriors into a 3-0 lead in the series and it would be a brave person who bets against them making it through to the Finals.
Stephen Curry was on top form, as you would expect from the MVP in the NBA, grabbing 40 points. The margin of victory itself was notable, being the second biggest win by an away team in a Conference Final. The Warriors haven’t been at the NBA Finals since 1974 and although the first two games in the series were close, this game showcased the form and confidence that the Warriors have showcased for most of the season.

Can the Cavs copy the Warriors and go 3-0?
With the Warriors now holding a 3-0 lead, all eyes turn to whether the Cleveland Cavaliers can claim a 3-0 lead in the Eastern Conference.
Kyrie Irving is still in with a chance in playing in Game 3 in the series but he is currently listed as being questionable. Mind you, this is an upgrade on his status for Friday night where he had to sit out the 82-94 win for the Cavaliers in Atlanta.

The Hawks suffered a blow with the loss of Kyle Korver
The Hawks also have injury concerns and they are going to be without Kyle Korver for this game, and in all likelihood, the rest of the post-season. The absence of Korver makes the Hawks task even more difficult, and when you think about how difficult it has already been for the Atlanta team, there are some big concerns in the camp ahead of the game in Cleveland. Kent Bazemore is in line to replace Korver but this is a decision that will be left until as close as game time as possible. With DeMarre Carroll battling on as best as he can with an injury, it has been a tough slog for the Hawks.
The Hawks are currently 68-28 for the season, and this includes a 28-19 record on the road and a 6-4 record in their 10 most recent games. The Cavaliers are currently on a 63-31 record for the season, and this includes a 35-11 record at home. The Cavaliers are 8-2 in their 10 most recent games.
With respect to average points scored, the Cavaliers are ahead 102.6 to 101.9 and for average points conceded, the Hawks have an edge of 96.9 to 97.7.
With home advantage and a good lead in the series so far, taking the Cleveland Cavaliers at -9 with odds of 1.90 is likely to be a good bet for Sunday in the NBA. You can also look out for the Over/Under market by going UNDER 190.0 and this is available at odds of 1.90. Bet Now!
