Yea Golden State are a class above the cavs here, cavs will win a max of 2 games. I'll be shocked if this is a long series.

Still find it hard to see how the thunder lost after being up 3-1, then crusing in the first half up by 13points to go on to lose by 8points. I hope Durant leaves and goes to the east to either the knicks/celtics/wizards. Westbrook is a good player but puts up just as many bricks as he does beauties, and his decision making at times is woeful.

Finals MVP Thompson 6/1 & top finals point scorer 4/1 will do me. Only 1 man to beat and thats Curry, don't see Lebron going off in this series for any 40point games.

Based on pure stats and given the differential in the playoffs and season,  GSW have a lot of catching up to do on 3PM %.  However every time they have played the Cavs this year their last 4 h2h wins  have been ;

47.5% home, 41% away, 38.2% home, 46.2% away.  Those 3PM stats are are way above the season average and expect an average 40 3PM% again v the Cavs. Also, given they have already lost one away game in the series with only having dropped two in the season there is a strong suspicion this series will either be  4-0 or 4-1 and no-more.

Great value backing the Warriors on the handicap every game this series, theyre just a much better team. Curry & Thompson had a low key night at they still breeze past the cavs.

I think the warriors will be +2.5 or +3.5 in cleveland, i will be backing them on the minus handicap most sites have

GAME 3 -10.5 C0RALS AGAIN at 7/2. Huge mistake by dopey cor@ls again.   Actually, i think  -14.5 will be nailed on , but no bookie is going that far.  Looking at the stats last night they seemed to be playing OK, but just get the feeling the curry monster will catch fire like he always does in Cleveland.  GSW historically play their best at Cleveland with their last win being  132-98. So GRANTCK take the tip @7-2  and don;t waste yr cash on the 10 inch mandingo in lebron because cleveland will get whitewashed.  Stats don;t lieWink

Curry has left his spirit and skill in the OKC series. The warriors had to give the cavs 1 game, they want to win the championship on their home court. Only a matter of time before Curry turns into a red hot phall, not a pansy masala. I expect the warriors to win the next 2 games.
