Judging by the fact that he put up 51 points, there’s really not much more the Cavaliers can ask from LeBron. While that’s not quite half the 114 points Cleveland delivered in Game 1, it’s damn near close. Kevin Love did the best he could as he finished the night with 21 points, 13 rebounds, and 1 assist. JR Smith delivered a decent performance as he put up 10 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists. However, Smith was criticized heavily for blowing the last couple seconds off the clock. Instead of getting off a crucial pass that could have set up a game-sealing 3-pointer. Instead, he got some heat from LeBron and the rest of the online NBA betting world.
Players to Watch: LeBron James (34.9 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 8.7 apg), Kevin Love (14.3 ppg, 10.2 rpg, 1.6 apg), and George Hill (9.5 rpg, 2.1 apg, 2.1 rpg).
Golden State Warriors
Coming off a great performance, the Warriors will be confident they can pull through again. However, there’s no denying the fact that they almost got upset in Game 1. Had the Cavaliers, JR Smith in particular, made one more play near the end of the game, we’d be talking different shop right now.
Players to Watch: Kevin Durant (28.8 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 4.2 apg), Stephen Curry (25.2 ppg, 6.1 rpg, and 5.3 apg), and Klay Thompson (20.7 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 1.9 apg).
