Can We Just Start the Cavs-Warriors Rematch Already?

Can We Just Start the Cavs-Warriors Rematch Already?

In the second team, the National Basketball Association was a place Stephen Curry (Golden state), ISEE Thomas (Boston), Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee), Kevin Durant (Golden state) and the Rudy Gobert (Utah), which lacked just four points to get into the main symbolic five. The singer appeared at a concert in South Africa wearing throwback Cleveland Cavaliers shorts on Thursday, a sure sign that he's favoring the gang from Lake Erie to beat the Golden State Warriors in their inevitable clash in the NBA Finals.

Since San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors ended the regular season with more victories than other teams, the home court advantage will be in their hands in the upcoming series.

When Cavaliers needed him most, Irving stepped up and played a critical role in the 109-102 Game 4 victory over the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Warriors swept Portland and Utah, toying with each. Cleveland is 12-0 SU and 9-2-1 ATS in its last 12 playoff contests.

It's easy to forget, as the Finals draw ever closer, that both the Warriors and Cavaliers have had their own obstacles to overcome-the Warriors lost coach Steve Kerr at the start of the playoffs to recurring problems from an earlier back surgery; the Cavaliers have collectively decided that defense is optional. And while it may not be the Finals matchup we all want, it's the Finals matchup we all need.

Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. (WBA) Closed at $81.73
Finally, Horan Capital Management boosted its stake in shares of Walgreens Boots Alliance by 19.1% in the third quarter. Ferguson Wellman Capital Management Inc. raised its position in Walgreens Boots Alliance by 0.9% in the third quarter.

The 1989 Lakers also won three straight series to take an 11-game winning streak into the NBA Finals, but Detroit turned the tables by sweeping those Lakers. Golden State is beating its playoff opponents by an average margin of 17 points per game - the largest point differential through 10 postseason games. A Game 1 loss at home wouldn't have doomed the Warriors-the Spurs themselves found that out last series-but at least it would have been a loss.

Curry leads all players with 39 three-pointers made and is shooting 47.9 percent from inside the arc as well, his numbers might drop slightly due to the intense defense that the Spurs play on the perimeter.

Game 2 of the Cavaliers and the Celtics tips off Friday at 8:30 pm ET with the visiting Cavs giving 5.5 points (O/U 219.5). Now we're about to have three in 13 months. People are already anointing these teams as dominant and franchise teams.
