Don't miss this Monday's Sports BIT with Teddy and Pauly, and start your week with the necessary info to win your betting picks.
The NBA season is in the rear view mirror, following the Cavs impressive, improbable come-from-behind series win over Golden State last night. On today's SportsBIT, Teddy and Pauly break down EXACTLY what happened in the Warriors collapse. The verdict? Every bit as much ‘Golden State bad' as it was ‘Cleveland Cavs good'.
Steve Kerr was badly outcoached by rookie Tyronn Lue, making wrong decision after wrong decision. The Warriors got really tight down the stretch, failing to run a single effective offensive possession over the last four minutes of the game, with a title on the line. Both Steph Curry and Klay Thompson finished Game 6 AND Game 7 with more turnovers than assists. Golden State just didn't look like Golden State over the last three games of the series, suffering their first three game losing streak since 2013!
For Cleveland, when a 52 year title drought for an entire city ends by the Cavs ‘rallying from the dead', it's a cathartic moment, one that reminded Teddy of the 2004 Red Sox as they rallied from a 3-0 deficit against the Yankees, then won their first World Series title since 1918. Kyrie Irving hit ‘the shot', LeBron James followed with ‘the Free Throw' (with the possibility of OT and a side/total reversal in the balance), and the celebration was on. For as much as Golden State choked this title away, the Cavs reached up and grabbed it when they had the chance.
So now it's the dead of summer, that six week stretch between the end of the NBA season and the beginning of preseason football.
