The Finals: It’s now NBA All-Star War


PhilBoxing.com




IN boxing, it’s a candidate Fight of the Year before the first punch could be thrown or landed.

The NBA Finals series promises to be a classic, epic battle for the ages, just like the 1975 Ali-Frazier Thrilla in Manila.
It’s a bit odd though that the Cleveland Cavaliers, defending NBA champions, have been relegated as underdogs against the Golden State Warriors in the Finals series that starts on Friday (Manila time).

**

Aren’t the two fiercely feuding NBA clubs evenly matched?

LeBron James could not offer a firm reply. The closest he could do was acknowledge the gigantic challenge posed by the All-Star-studded Warriors, packing a great wallop behind Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

James called the Golden State All-Star might “beastly.” He was quick to add he likes their chances.

**

“It’s probably up there; I mean it’s up there,” James admitted, adding Golden State was indeed a “high-powered team.”

For the record, Golden State and Cleveland are 1-1 in the two times they had clashed in the regular season.

Golden State has been known to celebrate their sharpness with deadly 3-point gunners, led by the prodigious and fearless Stephen Curry.

**

Hold it. Records however show Cleveland ranks first among play-off teams in offensive efficiency.

The NBA website (NBA.Com) notes “no team has made more 3-pointers than Cleveland with a play-off average of 14.6 pts. a game.’

Golden State has a set of remarkable All-Stars to rely on. But, although Cleveland has its own pack of All-Star wonders, one less than Golden State, there’s only little said about the explosive Kyrie Irving and the quietly efficient Kevin Love.

Yes, both teams pack a big KO punch, but as there’s no such thing as a stoppage in NBA wars, it won’t be loose to suggest the Finals could be decided only after the seventh game.
