May 23 2017THE WARRIORS AWAIT
The Cavs will win game four Tuesday against the Celtics, I have little doubt about that. But that game three debacle has an effect. The Cavs play until Thursday at least, and maybe 'til Saturday. Or next Monday. The Finals open in Oakland June 1. Suddenly, it's Golden State getting rest and not Cleveland. And consider how good the Warriors have been. If not for that remarkable run Lebron triggered last year, Golden State could be going for three in a row. They have not lost since April 10 (!?), and are the first team ever to go 12-0 in the playoffs. They have not lost a game that the Big Four all started since FEBRUARY. So all this Cavs' stuff may not matter after all.
