    I like the Brons +4.5 tonight. Very well may be a sweep, but Cavs will be fighting and GS May lack similar urgency.

    There will not be a sweep. Too much money at stake for the NBA. There are forces at work...

    I’m at a concert tonight, so no NBA viewing for me until a tape delay. Royal Blood will be taking the stage any minute. They’re an awesome up and coming rock band. Check them out sometime. Maybe I can catch the end of the game if it goes to OT.

    Did we ever get a definitive answer as to whether or not the NBA officials get paid by the game for the playoffs?

    I hope that's a great rock band you're watching bc you're missing LBJ doing his best to turn in an Oscar-worthy Performance tonight.

    Forgive my timing, as I'm about an hr behind on DVR. This Warriors team has fired on all cylinders, esp. from three (Curry has gone nutz and others are making them - Iguodala & Green) and on defense, where they are so savvy. Somehow, the Cavs managed to stay w/in eight after the first Q. It's no a two pt game w 7:32 left in the second.

    Think you'll enjoy the rest of it. I'm a little behind on DVR as well, but I'd like to add that Curry seems to be doing a decent job on defense tonight. :D

    Celtics would have been a more competitive final.

    What if you had a playoff and one of the teams forgot to show up?

    So as I said, I'm behind watching on DVR and am just now getting to the end of the 3rd quarter.

    First impression - wow!!!!!

    Next, Mark Jackson is just roasting the Cavs! I mean, he's not giving them an inch of leeway in terms of their effort or lack thereof. I suppose as a former player and a successful one, he's got the credit to criticize if/when he so chooses but, man!

    Jackson's comments may have sounded harsh but he's right. The Cavs seem to have accepted the inevitable and their effort is not what I'd expected.

    James subs out with 4 minutes left. Big night for Curry. Curious to see who gets finals MVP after Durant went off game 3 while Curry struggled.

    Durant should get it again. Warriors were feeding Curry the rock to get him stats to get it, so he might have pulled it off.

    Yeah. Think I'll abstain from commenting re that substitution decision, especially given the offseason decision he'll be facing.

    I'm actually more interested to hear others' thoughts on the discussion between the announcers beginning around the 6:20 mark in the 4th.

    KD did have a triple double tonight. Lol!

    The point differential stat tells it all.
