Final(s) Thoughts Game1

June 3, 2016

The Golden State Warriors used balanced scoring in their 15 point win, NBA Finals opening home win against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Golden State won an NBA record 73 games in the regular season playing in the far tougher Western Conference compared to the Cavaliers winning just 57 in the weaker NBA East.

Perhaps an explanation for the Warriors’ overcoming a (3-1) semi-finals series deficit vs the Oklahoma City Thunder is the fact that by virtue of Golden State winning, a Cleveland team would open a finals series on the road for the 8th time in as many such games.

Cleveland is now (1-7) in those games and has lost 7 straight. There is a great injustice in this Cavaliers team being in the finals, or at least having traveled such an easy road to get there.

However, they are a threat and Golden State, which lost game 2 at home last year, better not try that this year!
