Cavs rolling, Warriors reeling into Game 7

A huge start by the Cavaliers never allowed the Warriors into the game as they forced a Game 7 on Sunday.

A huge start by the Cavaliers never allowed the Warriors into the game as they forced a Game 7 on Sunday.

Never in the history of the NBA has a team come back from down 3-1 in a Finals series and won. It’s happened a handful of times in the playoffs, including when the Warriors just come back to beat the Thunder in the Western Conference Finals, but never before in the actual NBA Finals.

But it has to happen eventually.

It may not end up being the Cleveland Cavaliers, but after falling behind 3-1 to the defending champion Golden State Warriors in embarrassing fashion, the Cavaliers have all of the momentum after dominating the Warriors in games five and six to tie the series at 3-3 and force a Game Seven.

The Cavaliers will have the extra challenge of having to battle the Warriors in Oakland but they seem to have things figured out right now while the Warriors are trying not to be on the wrong end of history as a team to blow a 3-1 series lead.

James posted his second-straight 41 point game against a weak Warriors defense that showed major flaws in Game Five without Draymond Green and Game Six without Andrew Bogut. Kyrie Irving followed up 41-point performance in Game Five with 23 points in Game Six.

But what might be the most telling part about the state of both teams right now is seeing Curry lose his cool and be thrown out of the game late in the fourth quarter like the Warriors were being blown out, and then later seeing Klay Thompson walking back to the locker room before the final clock even ran out.

Meanwhile, the Warriors defense was once again awful without a complete set of interior defenders. Bogut is out for the rest of the playoffs and without him in there the Cavaliers were once again able to get to the rim with ease, even with Green back in there.

With two days off the Warriors have plenty of time to cool down, regroup and prepare to repeat as championship in Sunday’s Game Seven, but the Cavaliers are on a mission right now and are rolling. They are playing without house money right now too. They should have been eliminated. Of course there is pressure for James to bring a title to Cleveland, but the Warriors are the once facing the pressure. The Cavs are just playing great basketball.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
