9pm - Golden State -3.5 at Cleveland O/U 193.5
Not many thought that the Cavaliers would be in a position to take a 3-1 series lead over the Warriors but that is exactly the opportunity they have tonight in Cleveland. Thanks to LeBron James.
James is averaging 41 points, 12 rebounds and 8.3 assists through the first 3 games and there doesn't seem there's much Golden State can do to slow him down. Expect similar numbers from him tonight.
The Warriors will come out with an increased sense of urgency tonight and I look for C David Lee to get extended minutes after coming off the bench in game 3 to produce 11 points and 4 rebounds in 13 minutes with a +17. He had 5 of Golden State's 12 free throw attempts.
I like the over in tonight's game as the Warriors will no doubt do everything possible to push the tempo. Stephen Curry had an excellent shooting 2nd half in game 3 with 24 points in the half. I think he'll come out aggressive and if he gets contributions from the likes of Klay Thompson and Lee, it gives Golden State a real chance to win.
I can't look past Cleveland's 9-1 SU record in it's last 10 games or it's 5-0 SU mark at home during this stretch. The Warriors are 10-5 SU in their last 15 home games.
I see the Warriors being able to push up the total, but ultimately I see the Cavaliers winning another close one.
Cleveland 103 Golden State 102
