The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers have met in the NBA Finals in three consecutive years. But now they both have work to do to make it a fourth-straight matchup.

The Cavs find themselves on the brink of elimination as they head home for Game 6 against the Boston Celtics. A win, and a highly-anticipated Game 7 is in the works. A loss, and it may be the final time we see LeBron James in the wine and gold.

What: Eastern Conference Finals, Game 6, Boston Celtics at Cleveland Cavaliers (Boston leads 3-2)

All signs point to Cleveland

It certainly looks like the Cavaliers should win this game. So far in the playoffs, they’re 7-1 when playing in Cleveland. Just as importantly, the Celtics are a mere 1-6 on the road. Add in LeBron’s stellar record in elimination games, and the Cavs are the clear favorites.

However, if they do win, things move back to Boston, where the Celtics have gone a perfect 10-0 this postseason.

Memorial Day weekend kicks off with a great game. Enjoy, everyone!
