The NBA Finals are here again with the Warriors and Cavs back for an encore
The Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers are back in the NBA Finals for the second year in a row, with Game 1 set to go in Oracle Arena on Thursday night.
OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA — The NBA Finals begin Thursday night with the Golden State Warriors facing the Cleveland Cavaliers in a rematch of last year’s championship series.
The Warriors were amazingly able to defeat the Oklahoma City Thunder and take the Western Conference Finals after being down 3-1 against KD and Westbrook.
LeBron and the Cavs on the other hand had a relatively easy Eastern Conference Finals against the Toronto Raptors.
James has been having a great playoffs on both ends of the court. He also has a healthy Kyrie Irving this year. Kevin Love has been key to the Cavs run so far as well.
Steph Curry, the reigning MVP, has been unbelievable from behind the arc all season as well as the during the playoffs. Klay Thompson has also been deadly from three point land. The Warriors will need Draymond Green to step it up in the finals if they hope to repeat.
Both teams will need strong play from their role players as well as their benches.
Can LeBron finally win one for Cleveland? Or will the Warriors cap off their 73 win season with another championship?
