CAN Golden State wrap up the championship on Tuesday night? Nick Wells (@NVW89) gives us his best bets.
Golden State @ Cleveland | Wednesday 02:10
Unfortunately we had a few problems getting the Game 5 preview up but I managed to keep my 100% record in picking the match winner alive. Although this obviously doesn’t help you as you didn’t see it, it gives me confidence that this series is going exactly where I expected it to.
The fact is it’s do or die tonight for Lebron and the Cavs. The Dubs have the chance to wrap up the championship with a victory, safe in the knowledge that if they fail to do that, they’ll get a second chance in front of their home crowd in a Game 7…and that’s exactly what I’m expecting to happen.
I think Cleveland figure it out on Tuesday night and manage to get the win somehow. They will have got more used to this smaller line up that they’re facing and I think it’s fair to say that the last person you’d want to face when his backs against the wall, is the self proclaimed ‘best player on the planet’, LeBron James.
I’m gonna keep it simple. Cavs win to take this to a sudden death Game 7. If not, then we will be crowning the new NBA Champions tonight.
Golden State @ Cleveland – Cleveland to win – 13/8 (Betfair)
