After last season’s result, I’m a little wary about getting too overconfident but a 3-0 lead would go a long way to boosting my confidence in a sweep. For tonight, numberFire gives the Warriors a 53.7% chance of winning, which is appropriate given that they’re on the road and the Cavs have someone who’s quite good in that LeBron James guy.
