CLEVELAND at GOLDEN STATE GAME 2 BETTING PREVIEW
Golden State won Game One by a score of 113 to 91. They sent a harsh message to Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals and will try to take a 2-0 lead in the series when they host Game 2 on Sunday. The Warriors used a big third-quarter run and a brilliant 38-point performance from Kevin Durant to come away with a 113-91 win in the opening game of the series in Oakland.
The Cavaliers shot just 35 percent from the field and 11 of 31 from the 3-point line, but they never allowed themselves into the game as they could never really find their footing in the game as their 20 turnovers led to 21 points for Durant & co. who thrived on the fast break. The defensive woes that plagued the Cavaliers late in the regular season reared its ugly head once again in the series opener as they failed to keep up with the swift ball movement of the star-laden Warriors. The Cavaliers lost Game 1 at Golden State last year and fell down 3-1 before coming back to win the series, so they are not panicking.
Kevin Durant fired 38 points in his finals debut for Golden State while Stephen Curry scored 28 points with six 3-pointers and 10 assists as he looked hell-bent on avenging that painful series loss to the Cavs last year. Draymond Green grabbed 11 rebounds and scored nine points as the Warriors improved to a league-record 13-0 in the playoffs. The Warriors are also 28-1 in their last 29 games dating back to the regular season.
As for Cleveland, LeBron James scored 28 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in Game 1 and for the first time in his storied career had a double-double in the first half of a Finals game. Anyway, he can’t do it all alone, though, and he needs his Cavs teammates to step up their play in Game 2. The Cavs scuffled through the regular season largely because their team defense, which ranked 22nd in efficiency, struggled during the year.
