Yes, the buzzer ended the game, but it wasn’t over yet, as it moved into OT and LeBron made the OT score for the win.  This game after all was said and done belonged to the ‘King’ as he scored a triple double in the game. His Cavaliers nearly lost the game in the 4th quarter as the team seemed to collapse, then overcame the adversity to win if OT 95-93.

The Cavaliers LeBron in his 50 minutes of play in this 2nd Game of the Series, he had 11 assists, 16 rebounds and scored 39 points in the game to give him the triple/double. That took place on the court of the Warriors which is proclaimed to be the toughest stadium/arena in the NBA to win a game, and the Warriors this season had 47 wins with only 3 losses at their Oracle Arena.

To date in this 7 Game Series and the 2 Games played as of Sunday night, both have gone into overtime for the win.  Basically the Warriors and S. Curry struggled in this game, with Curry’s shooting performance at one of its lowest peaks.

In this game he only completed 5 of his 23 shots on FG’s, and made only 2 of his 15 attempts on 3-pointers as he scored a low of 19 points in the game, and gave up 6 turnovers. However as the game was ending Curry managed to make a lay-up to tie the game and send it to OT.  K. Thompson, with Curry’s shooting off tried to pick up the slack as he scored 34 points in the game, but his team suffered on 3-pointer as they made only 8 of 35 in the game, and overall for the game shot 39.8%.

The Cavaliers shooting performance was also off target, as the only made 32.2 percent of the shots, but did manage to have 55 rebounds to the Warriors 45.  The shooting % in this game for a winning team turned out to be the lowest shooting % since back in the 1984-1985 NBA Playoffs.

This turned out to be an important game for Cleveland as the won their 1st NBA Playoff game, and if they lost Game 2 they were looking at a 2-0 deficit, and teams with a 2-0 series lead, have won 28 of the 31 NBA Finals Series.

Now that we have the schedule complete for your information we review the reasons why the Cavaliers and/or the Warriors will win this 2015 NBA Championship.  If you need help on how to bet on basketball, check out this basketball betting tutorial which covers, how to read odds and the different types of bets available.

First we start with the 3 reason some experts pick the Cavaliers to win this 2015 Championship Title with the;

1st being LeBron James who when his is on the court, lot of things can happen including winning another NBA Tile, this time in Cleveland. To date he has performed very strongly, particularly against the Bulls of Chicago. The Warriors of Golden State have a great defensive scheme, but they will give special attention to LeBron, because apart from in excellent shooting skills, he love to make assists, by passing to his open teammates. That and his play in this postseason games, are enough to remind us that he still may be one of the best basketball players on the Planet.

2nd is the Cavaliers Defense which has greatly improved since these playoffs have started. Remember though that defending against the Warriors is no easy task for any team, and to date the Cavaliers improvement has been great and the results speak for themselves. One player, Thompson’s defensive play has been outstanding in the playoffs, and he will need to continue for the Warriors to win, along with support defensively form LeBron, Irving, Dellavedova, Smith and Irving. With this defense playing its best the Cavaliers have a chance to stay with the Warriors in this 7 Game Series.

The 3rd is the Cavaliers Versatility as they are not a team with a lot of depth, but they have the ability to play different schemes, like big or small depending on which team they are playing and the situation. They have a good small lineup in Thompson, James, Smith, Irving and Shumpert, and at times mix it up with Dellavedova, James, Marion and Jones, and if they need to go big they bring center Mozgov. Thus, the Cleveland team has gained confidence in these playoffs to date, and are convinced they belong, and can win the 2015 NBA Title.

Then we look at the 4 reason it’s likely the Warriors will win the 2015 Title:

1st is Curry who does not have Championship final 7 game experience, nor does the team. But they have that confidence that leads them to believe, that they and their 2015 MVP Curry can come through no matter what pressure they face. The Warriors like the big games and bright lights, especially Curry who in the big games tends to always play at his best.   2nd is what Team is going to beat the Warrior on their home court at the Oracle Arena? Since on home court they are 39-2 which is the second best all time home game record in the NBA. Surely you realize the Warriors have home court advantage in this Finals Series, as they have had throughout the playoffs, and that gives them the 1st, 2nd, 5th and 7th Games on their home court.

3rd is they have the Best Road Game Record in their League this 2014-15 Seasons, so if they lose one at home, no worry, they just win one on the road. This season under their head coach they have play far superior in their road games.

Then the 4th reason and the most important, of the 4 reason of all is their Defense that is playing at Championship levels. That is because their roster includes 4 of the best players on defense in the NBA in Iguodala, Thompson, Bogut and Green, and their defense led the league in efficiency on defense. Put that with the last 8 NBA Title holders all ranked in the top 10 in defensive efficiency. The experts seem to like Warriors dependency on the 3-pointers, and their free flow offense coupled with the top defense, which allows them to dictate their offensive flow in the game. They call that a classic offense and this is a classic Cavaliers team which is set on winning this 2015 NBA Title. So if you Bet on NBA at CRSportsBet.ag stay tune as this is going to be a real exciting 7 Game Series for this Season’s NBA Finals.
