Golden State Warriors vs Cleveland Cavaliers Game 6 pick

Golden State Warriors vs Cleveland Cavaliers
Finals Game 6 Score Prediction

The Cleveland Cavaliers got top performances from Kyrie Irving and LeBron James to stay alive in the NBA Finals. James and Irving will see if they can keep up the production when Draymond Green returns to the lineup in Game 6 on Thursday. Green was hit with a one-game suspension after the NBA deemed his hit to James’ groin in Game 4 a flagrant foul. The Warriors defense was noticeably weaker under the basket without him.

WARRIORS: Golden State’s defense took a hit when Andrew Bogut went down early in the third quarter of Game 5 with a knee injury. Bogut did not return to the game and underwent an MRI exam that revealed bone bruises that will force him out for the rest of the NBA Finals.
CAVALIERS: Cleveland is trying to become the first team ever to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals. Can they get another MVP performance from Irving and James? They combined to account for 97 of the team’s 112 points in Game 5 including assists to other teammates.

Warriors vs Cavaliers Prediction
Cavaliers 103 – Warriors 100

The Warriors will get Green back but the loss of Bogut hurts the depth and rotations the Warriors use. There will be more openings for James to drive to the hoop. The big question in tonight’s game will be Irving. Is he ready to provide another MVP performance? I don’t think he will match the game 5 level but he will provide enough shooting to keep this game close. Taking James to decide the game in the final minutes.
