NBA Finals predictions

By Byler E. Henry

This year’s NBA finals is shaping up to be a battle to the finish. For the first time in NBA final’s history games one and two have both went into over-time.

Down 1-0, the Cavaliers seized the moment in game 2 to tie the game up at one game apiece, winning in overtime 95-93.

Both cities have a long drought of no championships. Golden State’s last championship and finals appearance was in 1975, while Cleveland does not have an NBA title, and last appeared in 2007.

LeBron James is on a mission to bring Cleveland their first NBA championship. In game one, LeBron led the Cavs with 44 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists but it wasn’t enough for the win.

In game two however, he posted a triple double with 39 points, 16 rebounds, and 11 assists. He has the ring in his sight, but with Kyrie and Love out for the finals, LeBron is going to have to carry a heavier load.

It’s going to be a bit tougher without Love’s 3-point shooting and Kyrie to help with ball handling responsibilities. How-ever, the league MVP Stephen Curry is also determined to bring the Warriors another championship.

He had an efficient game one with 26 points, 4 rebounds, and 8 assists. However in game two he didn’t play very well, shooting 5 for 23 from the field (21.7 percent), but teammate and the other half of the shooting duo Klay Thompson contributed 34 points.

I do not expect this as the case for game 3 heading into Cleveland. I’m sure Curry can turn it around and show the same performance as game one. If both of the splash brothers can get it going in game three, it’s going to be a long night for the Cavs.

I’m looking forward to seeing game 3, and I believe it is going to be an excellent shooting display. I originally predicted the Warriors to win the series in five, but I’m changing the number of games from five to six. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr will make the necessary adjustments to rally his troops to be ready for game three.

I can’t wait, game 3 starts June 9 at 9 on ABC. Tune in to see who wins.
