Cavs the champs but Warriors the favorites in the NBA Finals

How can I watch the NBA Finals 2017 on TV in the UK? Check out the definitive 2017 NBA Finals on-feet guide and stay tuned for more updates throughout the NBA Finals right here on Sneaker News.

SMALL FORWARD: Kevin Durant vs. LeBron James. The first three games were decided by six or fewer before the Cavaliers rolled to a 114-91 victory in Boston on April 5, a win that at the time had the defending champions in the driver's seat for the No. 1 seed and home-court advantage. Cleveland Cavaliers' Kevin Love smiles as he fields questions before an NBA basketball practice, Wednesday, May 31, 2017, in Oakland, Calif.

Lets face it, after two straight NBA Finals during which he's been something shy of great, Steph is clearly not viewed through the same hype-filled lens that was previously part of his persona.

The Cavaliers have more at stake because they have the pressure of going for a repeat.

There was a feeling that Golden State Warriors were killing themselves trying to catch Chicago Bull's record of 72-10 in the regular season previous year which reflected later in the playoffs with Curry's and Bogut's injury.

Regardless of how this series turns out, James will walk away a champion having won an National Basketball Association title three times previously. If you listened to the experts this week, who were chatting up about the National Hockey League and NBA finals on SportSXRadio (airs on AM 720 KDWN 7-9 pm PST) you already know the reasons.

The Warriors are a ideal 12-0 in the 2017 playoffs, going 8-4 against the spread in the process.

Twitter reacts to Cavaliers pulling away from Celtics in Game 5
We see liberalized shot attempts, resulting in a bunch of Celtic players coming together in an attempt to fill the scoring gap. Deron Williams, who had been quiet for most of the series, also got in on the act with a series-best 14 points for Cleveland .

Curry averaged 22.6 points in last year's Finals and was held below 20 points in four of the seven games. Over the summer, the Warriors signed Kevin Durant which has definitely made the team even more dominant, having gone 12-0 in these playoffs.

"I work on my game a lot throughout the offseason", James said.

"I imagine I'm going to coach until Steve tells me he's ready", Brown said.

Some of the trends suggest that the Cavs will cover in tonight's game. Cleveland nearly certainly needs the Kevin Love of the last round to have a chance at the upset. Shaq averaged 36.3 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game. Golden State will try to keep him in check with Draymond Green, one of the league's best and most versatile defenders.

We just hope no injuries, suspensions or any outside factors will take place and that the both teams will enter this competition in their best mood. "Even though I wasn't here the last couple years, talking and hearing the stories and watching the film kind of transfers me and I feel like I've been part of this team".

The Warriors were 16 games better than the Cavaliers were in the regular season and have yet to lose a game in the playoffs.
