NBA Finals: Game Three Preview and Prediction

If you have not recovered from the last 40 seconds of game one, don’t worry, you are not alone. But, just like game two, it’s time to move on to the next game.

Stephen Curry was amazing, and nearly everything went the Warriors way. and Golden State took care of business both times at Oracle, and now the series shifts to Cleveland. The Cavaliers are 8-1 at home this postseason, with its only loss coming at the hands of the Indiana Pacers.

Aside from home court, another advantage the Cavs will have is… Rodney Hood?

With the Cavs down 2-0, needing to win both home games, why not give Hood some playing time? He’s a 6’8 athletic guard who can contribute on both ends of the court.

So what happens tonight?

Everyone knows Cleveland must win tonight to keep this series alive. The Cavs play well at home, and I see them keeping that up. I expect defensive rotations to be a step quicker, and 50/50 balls to bounce the Cavs way.

LeBron will be LeBron, and tonight, that means a 40-point triple double. Kevin Love will play well, and so will Hill, J.R, Korver, etc.

Cleveland wins, 114-103.
