It’s now down to Game Seven in the NBA Finals. The Cavaliers routed the Warriors in Game Six, 115-101.
The Warriors season where they won more games than any other team in league history has come down to this.
We were pulling for the Cavaliers, because of the ridiculous hype behind the Warriors. People talking nonsense like the Warriors were the best team ever. No. The Warriors are the best team in the NBA, and will likely win the title. The great thing is their record does say who they are.
The Warriors are 7-6 in their last 13 games. They have lost nearly as many games in these playoffs as they did in their vaunted regular season. This as much as anything says the NBA, in general, is a terrible product. We at BSP HQ have said for years the NBA lacks competitive balance. The one thing the league does is, show streakiness. If this game was happening early in the season, the series would have ended with a Golden State sweep. It means nothing with respect to these Finals. Another thought here: some players are totally out of sync in road games. A friend of mine says Harrison Barnes is on milk cartons.
We are thinking its Golden State. Then again, would you really want to go against LeBron James in a 1-game playoff?
This is why Dan Gilbert took numerous face shots in bringing him back. The Cavaliers would become legendary much in the same way the New York Giants did when they beat the undefeated Patriots. If the Warriors win, it’s just relief.
