NBA Finals Prediction: Can the Warriors roll in Game 2 vs. Cavs? 6/4/17

Cavs vs Warriors

Will the Golden State Warriors hammer the Cleveland Cavaliers once again when the two meet up in Game 2? Here’s our NBA Finals Prediction for tonight’s 8PM ET contest.


According to oddsmakers, the Warriors are the favorite at home tonight, as they are getting odds of -8.5 points against the Cavaliers. The over/under total for the game is listed at 220.5 points.


Golden State took Game 1 of the series on Thursday night with a 113-91 win at home. The Warriors have covered the spread in both games at home against Cleveland this season.

Golden State is now 80-15 overall, 43-5 at home and 49-43-3 against the spread. Cleveland is 63-33 overall, 27-22 on the road and 44-48-4 against the spread.


The Warriors cruised in Game 1 of the series, not so much because their offense was dominant, but that Cleveland was awful offensively. The Cavs committed 20 turnovers and shot just 30-of-86 from the field and 11-of-31 from 3-point land. Golden State was much better with the ball, turning the ball over just four times. They only shot 45-of-106 from the field and 12-of-33 from the arc. They actually missed a lot of good looks, as Cleveland wasn’t up to snuff on defense.

Kevin Durant had a big game, scoring a game-high 38 points with 8 rebounds and 8 assists. Stephen Curry added 28 points and 10 assists. LeBron James had 28 points with 15 rebounds and 8 assists, but he also had 8 turnovers.


The Cavs should be better on offense tonight, especially with the turnovers. The problem for them is, Golden State can also get a lot better on offense. The Warriors didn’t shoot the ball all that well and still won by 22 points.

Cleveland’s defense isn’t likely to get a lot better throughout this series. The Cavs been a poor defensive team most of the season. If they continue to give the Warriors open looks, it’s going to be an ugly series.
