Kevin Durant And The (15-0) Warriors Cover (Barely) Their 6th Straight Game And Are On The Precipice Of A Fifth Franchise Title

June 8, 2017

After the Golden State Warriors recorded their 15th win in as many ‘offs games, a (118-113) 6th straight “cover”–(10-5? vs the spread in these ‘offs and incredibly as there was no “Love” for dog bettors as Kevin Love’s shot for them missed, there has not been a “favorite wins/no cover” result, in any of the 16 GS vs Cleve title series tilts, as the two teams are meeting in such a round for an NBA first, third straight season.), they are almost certain to “title” for a second time in three seasons.

Last season they failed, dissipating a (3-1) title series lead and losing to Leb James and Cleveland.

Then they signed Kevin Durant and all that entails.

Durant hit shots totaling 5 points that transformed a 4 point Cavs’ lead into a one point “GS” lead and with James missing and turning the ball over, (please once and for all, end the comparisons between a great player, James and the discernibly greater Michael Jordan. I am entitled, “paying” mucho to all but assure, the self proclaimed “King’s” (James)–dog bettors need a Bible, maybe we all do) 5th title round series loss, in 8 such series. Mr. Jordan was undefeated in six), Golden State is all but assured of their third West Coast title and fifth in franchise history. (The Philadelphia Warriors won crowns in 1947 and 1956.)

Klay Thompson hit for 30 while Steph Curry had 26 for GS.  James had 39, Ky Irving 38 for Cleveland.

The Warriors will look for their second title series sweep in game 4 Friday night in Cleveland, where “GS” clinched their 2015 title in game six. Golden State, a pretty big series underdog, swept the Washington Bullets in the 1975 NBA title series.

They clinched the ’75 crown on a Sunday afternoon, in “Wash,” with the now retired “Horse” (Brent Musburger) presiding.

Clearly the Warriors are the first NBA team to go up (3-0) in the NBA championship series thrice (the Philly Warriors “cream cheesed,” forgive me, a (3-0) series lead in the first NBA title series in 1947 before winning in 5 games vs the Chicago Stags). I am pretty certain no other NBA team has accomplished that feat as many as two times.

 

Kevin Durant, # 35 pictured above and GS are up Three, almost certain to be #1, hopefully not in 5, but I pay while ABC/ESPN/Disney can afford the sweep.

It is incredibly sad, that I once loved the NBA and never missed a minute of their title round and now have essentially watched an aggregate game and a half (all of #7 last year) of the 16 GS/Cleve title round tilts to date.
