"Handicapping the Warriors without Green is very tricky because he's only missed seven games in his four-year career, which is absolutely ridiculous. For what it's worth, Green sat out one game this regular season for rest and Golden State lost a 112-110 decision at Denver in mid-January and they were beat handily on the glass (59-45). His absence should lead to extra possessions for the Cavaliers but outside of Game 3, Cleveland hasn't proven that they can make shots on a consistent basis against this defensive scheme. With that being said, I'd lean to the Cavaliers team total ‘under' (99 ½) in Game 5. It's easy to assume that Golden State wouldn't have success versus Cleveland in an ugly scrum but it's proving the pundits wrong. The Warriors are averaging 80 field goal attempts per game in this series, which is down from 87 attempts during the regular season. Meanwhile, the Cavs are attempting 85 shots per game and their best effort came in Game 3's win when they tossed up 91 attempts. The Warriors-Over parlay combination has benefited bettors plenty of times during the regular season but that exacta has only connected four times during the postseason. The right investment has been GS-Under, which has come in 10 times in 21 playoff games."
