Cavs, Warriors NBA Finals ticket market strong despite repetitive matchup

The simple, unprecedented fact that the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers will square off in a third straight NBA Finals is enough to make this series momentous. There were some who felt that LeBron James would actually be the coach and that Lue would be a figurehead. Focusing specifically on Game 1 of the NBA Finals over the past 26 years, the Under has been a profitable 9-15-1 O/U since 1991.

Barnes wasn't exactly a neutral observer a year ago, having grown up in Northern California and having played with the Warriors before their recent run of dominance. "I have great memories of and bad memories of past year, but they're both lessons that you can learn going into the series, knowing what it takes to win, how important every possession is, focusing on the details".

2K Sports today released the results of its annual NBA Finals simulation using NBA 2K17, and it's the Warriors who come out on top this year, defeating the Cavs in a thrilling seven-game series. The Golden State Warriors face the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday in. The Warriors are the best first quarter team in the postseason in terms of net rating (+32.1 points per 100 possessions) and are +112 in point differential in first halves.

"So that's the most important thing, but individually, just work on my game, like I said, approach the game like I always do, and we'll see what happens". Listening to the guys who are advising us novice bettors is how I got to be pretty good at picking winners.

This matchup has seemed ordained since James walked off the court in Oakland last June, having delivered his native northeast OH its first major team championship since 1964.

James mentioned Emmitt Till, the 14-year old Mississippian beaten to death by two white men in 1955.

"This is what every player wants to be, is the highest level of basketball", Durant said. The Warriors' best lineup against the Cavaliers probably has both players on the floor at the same time, with Iguodala on James and Thompson defending Irving, so Thompson said he doesn't get caught up in whether his shot is falling. "He's competitive and he wants to win, so you can bet that he's not happy about previous year and he's going to go after this one". He averaged a quiet 13.8 points in the first two rounds, then busted out for 22.6 points and 12.4 rebounds per game against Boston in the Eastern Conference finals.

"Any time someone beats you, you'd love to play them", Green said. Our goals were set at the beginning of the season, and that's to win a championship.

While the Cavs and Warriors have played in the Finals the past two years, Durant and James met before that in different uniforms. The Spurs won and covered in that game and swept the Cavs in the Finals. The Cleveland Cavaliers are averaging 114.9 points on 49.5 percent shooting and allowing 103.9 points on 44.8 percent shooting. I'm not into lopsided games.

He has scored 20 or more points in 10 straight playoff games and led the Warriors in scoring in eight of their 12 postseason contests. The Cavs' will have essentially the same team that they had a year ago.

"It's just a little bit of swelling but has nothing to do with my performance", he said.

Still, I'm still going to do it and take the Cavs in 7. The simulation is far off what the professional bettors in Las Vegas are saying. Golden State does not. "He's put us in a great position". We will use it as motivation, but the idea of playing into it?
