A rematch of last season’s NBA Finals gets set for action on Thursday night.
The Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors both had to overcome adversity in the Conference Finals, but did manage to just that and find themselves representing their conferences.
A year ago, the Cavaliers were relying on Lebron James solely to bring this city a championship. With Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love both injured, it was on James to be the catalyst.
Cleveland took a 2-1 lead, but saw the Warriors take 3 straight games as the drought when on for Cleveland.
This year, things are different. Cleveland has dropped just 2 postseason games and is yet to trail in a series, as everyone is healthy and this team is playing at an extremely high level.
Lebron James, Kevin Love, and Kyrie Irving have all saw their play and chemistry sky rocket this postseason, which has led to a pair of sweeps and a 4-2 series win.
Cleveland has proven they have no problem winning on the road and with the depth they have, this team is extremely dangerous.
Channing Frye, Iman Shumpert, and Matthew Dellavedova highlight a very talented Cavaliers bench that can play stellar defense, along with scoring.
Golden State Warriors
After breaking the record for NBA regular season wins, the Warriors were the most popular pick to win the West.
They were expected to play the Spurs, but after Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook had their say, Golden State found themselves down 3-1 to the Thunder.
One game from elimination, Golden State took down the Thunder at home and sent the series back to OKC.
Trailing for a majority of the game, Klay Thompson took off and took over, leading the Warriors back to a win with a late 3. Golden State then needed to overcome a 35-22 deficit in the 2nd quarter.
The Warriors overcame all the problems and staved off elimination en route to another Western Conference title.
They’ll have their work cut out once again as they will face an even more talented defense.
The Thunder didn’t allow Warriors shooters to find any room in the first 4 games of the series. Golden State should expect that from this Cleveland team.
