Warriors in 6. They split the first 2, split in Cleveland and the Warriors take the next 2. Much closer series than the 'experts' are calling for.

Voted Warriors in 4. Hoping LBJ can at least win one by himself though

GSW in 6. LBJ averages 40-10-10 and gets MVP

Warriors in 5, probably a sweep if Iguadola is playing.

Only way the Warriors don't win in as many as 5 games is if one of their "big 4" get injured or suspended.

LeBron can win one if his team catches fire at home.

Ah wth Cavs in 7. Honestly I believe GS in 5. But I think it can go 7 if they can steal one of the first 2.

Warriors in 5. Cavs get one at home. Iíll be rooting hard for the Cavs, but GSW are just too good.

Probably Warriors in 6, but I'm not ruling out a second title for the Cavs. GSW has had their ups and downs and they are not perfect. If the threes start landing for the Cavs, watch out. +710 is not really an accurate reflection of Cleveland's actual chance at winning the series. And no way would I put -960 on Golden State. Yes in all likelihood the -960 pays off, but the risk is way too great.

If we get a 7 game series or a CLE win, every sports writer in the United States is going to be shocked (shocked!) that the Cavs' role guys can play defense and that Andre Iguodala has a purpose in Golden State's rotation.

I think for the Cavs to have a chance .... they need to copy the game plan from the first time these teams met in the finals ... a slow down grind it out, "ugly" type of basketball ... don't let the Warriors get on roll ... the Cavs can't match the fire power the Warriors have ... so don't try.

Warriors sweep, GS is same as last year, Cavs are worse than last year, and Love is banged up.

The Cavs will keep it close early in a few games, but you have to score, score, score in the NBA. Houston had great first halves in games 6 and 7 and they just were out of gas. LeBron can't play 40+ minutes every game and have anything in the 2nd half. Thompson is a terrible matchup, can't play he and Love together at all. JR, Clarkson, Hill, Korver have to find a way to guard Thompson / Curry...and I have no idea who's going to guard Durrant. LeBron would make sense, but he can't guard him every game, every minute.

GS opening as a 13 point favorite in game one, the largest favorite in any NBA Finals game ever.

I agree, but unfortunately I think part of why that worked was that Golden State was still new to championship basketball and probably not truly ready to win a title (that year was a freakin gift), and they didn't have Durant, who is perfectly comfortable playing a slow game. Still, the Cavs really have no other choice but to try it. Last year they still had Kyrie and Frye on the roster so were able to at least attempt to play fast and outscore the dubs, but it ain't happening with this group

They call it the most lopsided Finals in history. I struggle to see a way for the Cavs to win the series. I agree with joesports above, they have to slow it down and grind like they did with Delly/Shump/Mosgov, and hope to steal a game or two.

However, anyone calling for a sweep underestimates LeBron, which is a mistake. He was superhuman in the playoffs thus far, and will need to be even better. But Cavs win at least one home game due to his greatness.

There's the break Cleveland needed with Thompson getting rolled up on. Hopefully it's just his ankle and not his knee.

The Jordan Clarkson experiment should end now ! He can’t shoot and plays too erratic.

Doesn't seem like a giant mismatch thus far and I'll take it. But let's see what the dreaded 3rd quarter brings...

Was just thinking the same thing. The Cavs can win this game with some solid D. Nance has really stepped up and Lebron is shooting the lights out.
