The Cavs are looking to bounce back after their loss against the Dubs back in January. The Warriors on the other hand are riding the wave of success with an incredible 44-10 record. (best in the NBA!) These Dubs are on fire and our guys know what's at stake in tonight's match up. Get your popcorn ready and crack open a few beers - this is going to be an exciting game!

The Cavs.

Since the start of the second half of the season, Cleveland has been on a rampage on the road outscoring their last 3 opponents by 21.7 points. With injuries not being an issue moving forward, the Cavs have an arsenal of weapons to either keep this game close vs Golden State or smash right past them. Sadly, the Cavaliers have lost 4 in a row to the Warriors, so a win tonight especially with LeBron back on the roster is a must.

The Dubs.

This team is flying on a high note, owning the best record in the NBA. There's a lot of basketball left though - a win tonight brings them a step closer to winning it all. After sitting out the Pacers game on Sunday, Stephen Curry roars back with a 32 point game and a win against the Wizards on Tuesday. Steph is on a rampage averaging 28.1 points per game in the last 12 games. Now let's not forget his supporting cast that features a Splash Brother, a heavy hitting starting line up, an unstoppable bench and one of the best coaching staffs in the league today helping these kids succeed. We got it good up here in Golden State.

My Prediction.

Ooooh... this is going to be close. If the Warriors play solid defense and hit all of their shots (especially their 3-pointers) these Dubs are going to be a headache for the Cavs. But if Cleveland defends at a high level and disrupts our shooters we're in for a world of hurt. It's about who wants it more because anybody can take the win! It's going to be fun to see who heats up first. If the treys come splashing put my money on the Warriors!

Dubs win it by 1 with a Klay Thompson buzzer beater!
