The wait is over and the two teams we thought would be here are yet again representing their respective conferences. The Golden State Warriors blistered through the Western Conference going 12-0 and beating their opponents by an average of 16.3 ppg.
On the other side the Cleveland Cavaliers look much improved compared to how they played the second half of the regular season when they went 23-23 in their last 46 games. The Cavs only have one loss this postseason coming against the Boston Celtics who they otherwise obliterated the rest of the series, ending the Celtics playoff run in Boston by an astounding 33-point margin.
Both teams are rested and, for the most part, fairly healthy and ready to match up with one another for the third straight year. These teams have different looks however with Kevin Durant now in a Warriors jersey and the Cavs adding more firepower off the bench with their veteran laden roster.
For all the excitement there is, we as the fans have had to wait a week without any NBA basketball in the thick of the playoffs. The media is seemingly every day searching for new things to analyze about this matchup but at the end of the day we just want this epic series to begin. The stage is set for what is being labeled the Thrillogy for this year’s NBA Finals.
