Do the Warriors have what takes?

The Eastern and Western conference NBA finals are completed, and for the fourth straight year the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers will battle for the best of 7 in the NBA finals.

LeBron James and his Cavs stunned the Boston Celtics in game seven, and the Warriors did the same to the Houston Rockets rallying from an eleven-point halftime deficit to claim the 101-92 victory.

Both teams had to fight their way from 3-2 deficits in the conference finals.

The first game between the Warriors and Cavs was Thursday in the Oracle Arena with the Warriors having home court advantage. The Warriors also have won two of the last three finals matchup, with Cleveland taking the historic 4-3 comeback in 2016.

It should be an interesting game but some feel like it will be a sweep. However, I will give the Cavs at least one or two games with them having James.

As we know the Warriors are going into the finals as the favorite to win it all again this year. Reasons why they have a better team, they are more talented and it will be four stars against one.

The only way I see the Cavs winning a game is if the Warriors have a bad shooting night or if James gets help from his support cast, because one guy will not beat the Warriors. This Warriors team is well equipped and loaded with players who are ready to play and step up.

This Warriors team is also a team that dominates and explodes in the third quarter. It’s like a wake-up call after the half, they start the game bad but come out making all their shots and getting stops on the defensive end.

So if you ask me I think the Warriors will beat the Cavs again this year 4-1 or 4-2. What do you all think?
