NBA Finals: Golden State Warriors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers preview

NBA Finals: Golden State Warriors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers preview

He's a three-time National Basketball Association champion, a four-time MVP, a three-time Finals MVP and a 14-time All-Star.

And ahead of Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors tonight, the Triple-A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, threw their hat into the ring.

Golden State struggled to hit shots for stretches. "But obviously, they're still going to come out and play the way they play". Either of them can get hot and carry the team at a moment's notice. They get 3s and easy baskets. "I had loved him at Arizona and was hoping that he slid to us with that pick". The Warriors? Well, the numbers are +3.0 and a staggering +13.3 for the post-season - remember, Curry missed many playoff games.

In the Warriors' Western Conference finals Game 7 victory Monday against Houston, Durant had 21 of his game-high 34 points in the second half while Curry scored 19 of his 27 after the break. "Like you said, the first 50 games were a roller coaster, but to get the opportunity to be in this environment, this magnitude is something that I can't believe that happened". The Warriors will fall into that trap, if led there. "Making some progress, [but] it's slower than we expected".

"But the modern-day Warriors and Cavaliers, in a bloated league of 30 teams, trumped them all".

The Warriors' offensive style is notorious for movement of players and the ball.

Golden State has outscored its opponents by a ridiculous 130 points in the third quarter in these playoffs - an average of 7.6 points a game - and was even better against the Houston Rockets, with a 67-point advantage over seven games. The over/under point total for tonight is set at 214.5 points.

"We've been watching a little bit of film, trying to figure out how the other guys fit in around him and where some of their tendencies are". They are created to help illustrate how teams go about the goal of trying to put the ball in the basket.

Shaun Livingston has been the best fifth man with the rest of the Hampton's lineup (Curry, Durant, Thompson, Green), but he's not as good a defender and more of a midrange shooter. That's a tough hill to climb, and you can see why numbers-based projections see the Warriors as the overwhelming favorites. The difference is, you have guys on both of these teams that are locked Hall of Famers and they are chasing guys in that special room, and that's the difference.

Aside from the repetition, there is a fear that this series will be one-sided with the defending-champion Warriors significant favorites over LeBron James, who comes in with his least-respected Cavaliers squad.

Missing out on the final two games will eat away at the nine-time All-Star throughout the summer but the Rockets have shown they can compete with the reigning champs.
