The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors are set to clash again for the second time to win the NBA championship title. It is still fresh in the mind of all NBA fans how the Warriors defeated the Cavaliers in the NBA Finals 2015. However, things will be different this time since the Cavaliers will be playing with all their ‘Big Three’ healthy and injury-free.
Despite not having Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love in last year’s NBA Finals, the LeBron-led Cavaliers did not make it easy for the Warriors to get the championship title. He has proven that he is one of the greatest players in the league by facing the mighty Warriors fearlessly and played like there would be no tomorrow. Unfortunately, the Cavaliers fell short and the Warriors won the title.
In their upcoming matchup, the Cleveland Cavaliers are expected to be well-prepared and ready to get their revenge against the Golden State Warriors. However, the team that once defeated them in the NBA Finals 2015 became a more dangerous team and managed to survive every challenge they encountered on their way to the NBA Finals 2016. The Warriors are now the title holder of most wins in a regular season after surpassing the legendary ’95-96 Chicago Bulls record of 72-10.
It is very exciting how the Cleveland Cavaliers starting lineup will match the Warriors’. Can Kyrie Irving take Stephen Curry on a one-on-one? Can Andre Iguodala stop LeBron James for the second time? Another matchup that will spice up the rematch is Kevin Love and Klay Thompson. Knowing their contributions in their team’s success, they are expected to bring more actions and excitements in the upcoming game. The outcome is still unpredictable with the top teams in the Eastern and Western Conference set to clash in the NBA Finals 2016.
Game 1 of the NBA Finals 2016 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors will be on Thursday 9 p.m. at the Oracle Arena.
