Christmas Day #NBA Free Pick
This will be the first meeting since the NBA finals last season. We all remember how the Cavs came back from a 3-1 deficit in the series to clinch the title, and I think it’s noteworthy that none of the games in the finals went over the total posted for this contest. These are obviously two of the better offensive teams in the NBA, but they also know how to step it up defensively when needed. We can also note that Cleveland will be forced to take on the Pistons at Detroit tomorrow, so the Cavs won’t be interested in making this a high-tempo game that would play into the hands of the Warriors anyway.
The Warriors defeated the Cavs 89-83 home at Oracle on Christmas Day last year. Under is 11-5-2 in the last 18 meetings overall and I don’t see this game going over the total.
