This year’s NBA Playoffs Finals series between Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers has been everything but expected. The Cavs first took Game 2 in Oakland and then, despite what everyone thought, they won Game 3, the first game played in Ohio. Last night, however, things went the way everyone expected.
The Warriors won in Cleveland with the final score of 123-82 and tied up the series, meaning that they are returning home with restored home court advantage for game 5. The game itself featured quite a few storylines.
The first of these are the Warriors finally starting to play like the best team in the league. Also, it feels that The Cavs are finally feeling the strain of playing little more than 7 guys for the entire Finals series. Not even LeBron managed to pull this one out, particularly since his backup players more or less let him down.
It is starting to feel that games 2 and 3 were really anomalies and that the Warriors will close out this series in the next two games. Still, no one can be sure of it, not with LeBron still in the game.
