Cavaliers vs Warriors Pick

The Warriors need Green to beat Cleveland, but his selfish attitude has really put a halt to the momentum they would have had coming home for this game. Many Warriors fans think this series is over but without Green. All the Cavaliers have to do is steal this game the go home and see what happens. If the Cavs do make a comeback in the series. Green is the goat. Taking the Cavs to win in a squeaker.
