NBA Finals – 6/2

Well, we ended up with the matchup most expected and wanted, Cleveland / Golden State.  It wasn't without some drama, however, as the Warriors had to scramble back from down 3-1 and the Cavaliers found themselves tied 2-2 with the Raptors at one point.

For the finals, I've made a little adjustment to the Formulated Spread Indicator (FSI).  Since SRS isn't applicable in the playoffs, I've substituted Pythagorean W/L differential for this category.  This is simply a calculation of expected wins and losses based on points scored and allowed.  Recent performance and home court ratings and calculations will remain as is.
