Who will win the NBA finals?
This year the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors will be playing a rematch in the NBA Finals, with both teams being the number one seed in their conference we should see a very close series. The Warriors ended the year with the best record in NBA history with an astonishing 73-9 record. After coming back from a 3-1 deficit in the Western Conference Finals to the Oklahoma City Thunder the Warriors aim for back to back championships. Golden State may have the advantages statistically by leading the playoffs in average points and assists per game while also being second in steals, not to mention they have the back to back and the only unanimous MVP in NBA history Stephen Curry.
While the Warriors have Steph Curry the Cavaliers have arguably one of the greatest players of all time, Lebron James. Lebron and the Cavaliers dominated the Eastern Conference playoffs as they swept the Detroit Pistons and the Atlanta Hawks in the first and second round while only losing 2 games to the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Finals leaving them with a 12-2 record in the playoffs. Having a healthy Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving will be a key factor in the finals match up this year. Kyrie only playing in one game in the NBA Finals last year and Love missing the entire series had a huge impact on the series last year.
Both teams are extremely talented but I think the Cavaliers win the series in 7 games. The Cavaliers will prove to be too much for the Warriors to handle on offense and Lebron will give Cleveland the championship they deserve.
