Cavs Get The Series Advantage, Warriors Still Favorites
Last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers picked up the 96-91 victory to go up 2-1 in the NBA Championships series.
The Cavs were led by LeBron James who put up 40 points. The scrappy Aussie Matthew Dellavedova continued his heroics by putting up an additional 20 points. The Cavs even survived a fourth-quarter comeback from the Warriors
The Cavs James scored 40 points, his new sidekick Matthew Dellavedova added 20 and the Cavaliers survived Golden State’s furious fourth-quarter comeback led by Stephen Curry. It was a heck of a game. The Cavs prevailed.
The Cavs picked up the win even without Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving who are out with injuries. This leaves James with alot to do on the court. He has played 142 of a possible 154 minutes and taken 107 shots with 123 points through the three games of this championship series.
“I’m just trying to do whatever it takes to help our team win,” James said. “It’s the finals, and it’s whatever it takes. This is a totally different challenge.”
For bettors, UNDER total bettors left the game/turned off their televisions happy with a 187-point game total with the total for the game set at 197 points. The Cavs won, while being listed as underdogs. After hitting the UNDER in all three games the total for Game 4 is currently set at a low 193 points.
Strangely, the Warriors are still listed as the early favorites for Game 4 on Thursday. Golden State opened with a moneyline around -120 against the Cavs in Game 4.
