The odds are stacked against the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals

The odds are stacked against the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals

Kevin Durant totaled 34 points, five rebounds, and five assists for the Warriors, and Klay Thompson chipped in 19 points despite early foul trouble.Curry also produced nine boards, 10 assists and four steals. Asked about the disparity on Tuesday, Cleveland head coach Tyronn Lue declined to play into the narrative that his team is a long shot. But, tweets from players, fans and other notables were flying fast and furious as numerous calls went against the Rockets including a couple several blatant no-calls that seemed to turn the tide for the Warriors. He played every single minute of Game 7 in Boston - his 100th game in his 15th season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors meet Thursday in game one of the 2018 NBA Finals at the Oracle Arena. The Warriors trailed by as many as 15 points in the first half of Game 7, before mounting a comeback.

These comments appeared online nearly instantly after the Cavaliers Game 7 win over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, and as the age-old debate reared it's head once again, the legendary Kobe Bryant offered some choice words on the GOAT argument.

That being said, I won't consider it as a factor in this series.

But James once again had his way with the Raptors as the Wine and Gold eliminated them for the third year running and completed a second consecutive sweep.

Still, we weren't quite prepared for just how hugely Golden State would favored. In the middle of the season, Cleveland essentially blew up their lineup, dumping Isaiah Thomas - the player they obtained for Irving - in a series of trades meant to make the team younger and more agile for a playoff run.

Jayson Tatum scored 24, Al Horford scored 17 and Marcus Morris added 14 points with 12 rebounds for the Celtics, who were looking to return to the NBA Finals for the first time since 2010.

For two straight games, the third quarter officiating has been rough to say the least. Like I said above, both teams will likely be content winning games at home for the early part of the series. But he was eliminated in the playoffs by James before he was with the Warriors, and that grudge could still be there to this day.

Cleveland finished in fourth place in the East during a tumultuous season of roster upheaval, and was 29th all year on defense. Sorry for you guys that don't know much about Cedar Point, but it's been a roller coaster.
