NBA Finals Game 1: Will David Blatt Win the NBA Championships in his first year?Published June 3, 2015 by Sol FH
Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors tonight at 2:00 (UK). Which team will take the important Game 1 advantage?
It’s finally here. The NBA Championships get underway tonight from Oracle Arena in Oakland California. It has been a long road for both teams to get here, the Warriors are looking better with each and every game, while the Cavs have had their share of playoff hardships. This will be an amazing best-of-seven and you should not miss one minute of high-flying NBA action.
The Warriors came into the playoffs as favorites to reach the Finals. They have lived up to their expectations and the way they are playing, it looks like they could be crowned as 2015 champions. Their postseason record so far is 12-3, which is much like their win/loss record from the regular season. True, they missed a bullet having not needed to play the Clippers or the Spurs, they did have some good competition throughout.
David Blatt, Head Coach of the Cavs is making history. In his first season in the NBA he has taken a team, albeit with one of the best players ever to hit the hard wood, to the NBA finals with a great chance to take it all. LeBron James has been outstanding throughout the playoffs, setting the bar incredibly high, especially as they swept the Atlanta Hawks to make the Finals. The ultimate struggle for the Cavs has been injuries. Kevin Love will be out for many more months and Kyrie Irving is still limited in his abilities. That being said, I still believe that the Cavs will surprise most critics and will win the NBA Finals in six games.
The NBA Playoffs have broken online gambling records this season and the Finals will most-likely be the highest bet sporting event of 2015 so far. Bet365 sports has the Warriors as Game 1 favorites at 1.40, while the Cavs are at 3.05. That is an excellent opportunity for punters, betting on the underdog.
