NBA Update: Klay Thompson And G.S. Will Have Home Advantage Vs Tonight’s Boston @ Miami Winner In The Final Series

May 29, 2022

Last Thursday, the Warriors rode 32 Klay Thompson points to a (-7) by 10,) win over the Dallas Mavericks to take their “semi” in 5 and advance to their 6th NBA final in 8 seasons.

They will face the winner of tonight’s Boston (Celtics) at Miami (Heat) #7 winner in the 76th NBA final, which culminates the league’s 75th anniversary season, one virtually devoid of close ‘offs contests.

I sense a close tilt tonight. Boston (25-9) in previous #7’s, once (9-0), the first loss on another Sunday the 29th of a month, (the Knicks won #7 of their semi on April 29, 1973 in a day/over the air ‘cast–no such luck today), is a 2 plus point(s) fave. They lost the home 6th, as 8 plus point(s) favorites Friday past.

On a day I told the news to a not surprised, baseball great, Frank Robinson at Yankee Stadium in June 1986, the Celts copped an incredible 16th title in 40 NBA seasons, meaning they had 40 percent of the league’s crowns at that point.

Soon after, their coveted NBA second pick, Len Bias died and years later, but now long ago, Al “Grampa” Lewis, lamented on that loss while on my cable show.

35 completed seasons since and but one title for Boston. Golden State is (9-0) at home in these ‘offs. Miami has 3 crowns and is (6-4) in previous #7’s including a Leb James led “winner take all,” win vs San Antonio in #7 of the 2013 NBA final.

Klay Thompson, pictured above, and his father Mychal, each played on back to back title teams, 30 years apart. Mychal and L.A. did so in ’87 and ’88 while Klay and Golden State did so in 2017 and 2018.
