Warriors to win -- In 4 or 5 Game Series
If MSU's Draymond Green plays every game, I'm picking the Warriors in 4 or 5 games.
Last year, when Green "kicked" his way out of Game 5 against the Cavaliers, the door opened for Cleveland.
Curry was at best, mediocre.
And in the end, the Warriors fumbled the ball to LeBron James, who carried it to a 7-game championship.
I also believe, for some reason, that the referees allowed the Cleveland defense to man-handle Curry every time he went inside. That won't happen this year.
Now, don't misunderstand.
I know the "rules" change in the "FINALS."
I know that it's a time for "MEN" to step up.
Like the philosophy of the old-time Celtics and Detroit's "bad boys," -- There will be No Easy Baskets.
The philosophy is "to let them play."
But . . .
In the end, Golden State will score between 120+ points each game.
At the same time, Golden State will grind on LeBron James with defenders Green, Durant and Iguodala. Sure . . . If Kevin Love and/or Kyrie Irving can contribute 50-60 points between them each game, maybe there's a chance for the Cavs to win maybe 2 games.
In my opinion, the Cavs don't play fast enough and they don't have enough scoring coming off the bench. The Cav will only score 105+ points per game MAINLY because the Warriors play better defense.
Let's match-up the rosters.
Kevin Durant -- Lebron James (EVEN)
Steph Curry -- Kyrie Irving (EVEN)
Klay Thompson -- Kyle Korver (KLAY THOMPSON)
Draymond Green -- Kevin Love (DRAYMOND GREEN)
Zaza Pachulia/JaVale McGee -- Tristan Thompson (PACHULIA/MCGEE)
Andre Iguodala -- Deron Williams (IGUODALA)
Shaun Livingston -- Ooops
Matt Barnes -- Ooops
David West -- Oooops
Ian Clark -- Oooops
Patrick McCaw -- Ooops
1 - The starting line-up of the Warriors is better.
2 - The Warriors bench is better.
3 - Warriors Mike Brown is a better Head Coach than LeBron James.
The Warriors will run bodies at the Cavs until they wilt.
In the last 3 playoff games, the Warriors averaged 129 points per game.
In the last 3 playoff games, Cleveland averaged 118 points per game. (And the Cavs EVEN lost (AT HOME) to a decimated Boston Celtic team.) (AT HOME!)
Sell the farm . . . Take the money and bet it all on the Warriors.
