Warriors vs. Cavaliers Game 4 Expert Picks
Golden State has just been too damn much for even the best of LeBron James to take down. That’s mostly how the NBA Finals has turned out in each of the first three games of the series, with James churning out insane numbers and the Warriors spoiling The King’s exploits with their own insane outputs. Perhaps only crazier than it all was JR Smith’s now deleted Twitter proclamation that Cleveland would top what it did last year by winning the series in Game 7. But that’s just JR for you.
For Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox, though, the Cavaliers are at least good enough to avoid getting completely swept. In other words, he’s expecting the Cavs to take Game 4 at home. While he recognizes the neck-deep quicksand Cleveland is in right now, he believes that a team with LeBron James would warrant another game.
Prediction: Knox has the Cavaliers winning Game 4, 112-105.
Dennis Chamber of Basketballinsiders.com has also thrown his hat into the ring of NBA Finals forecasting. Chambers is just like most of us, awed by the stellar lineup of the Warriors that doesn’t seem to be capable of being stopped by anything from this planet.
The Cavs’ chances of winning Game 4 rest on whether Cleveland could controlling the boards and pace of the game according to Chambers. Of course, those are no easy tasks because those were practically the two areas the other 29 teams in the regular season and in the playoffs were trying to do but to no avail.
Prediction: Setting aside the possibility of an injury or a suspension to any of Golden State’s major players, Chambers keeps it real and declares the Warriors winning it all this Saturday.
