The Conference finals are almost over and the Finals are about here. The Warriors swept the San Antonio Spurs 4-0 with a blowout by the Warriors almost every game.  In game one Kawhi Leonard had 26 points and they had a 23 point lead but, Kawhi went down with a rolled ankle and didn’t come back up. The warriors came back and won the game by 2. The next three games they demolished the Spurs on both ends of the court because they didn’t have their MVP finals Kawhi and the defending champ of the defensive player of the year. With the sweep of the Portland Blazers, Utah Jazz and the San Antonio Spurs this makes them the first team to be 12-0 in the playoffs.

Over at the East  coast something similar is happening but with the Cleveland Cavaliers. They were undefeated going into the Conference finals with a record of 8-0, sweeping the Indiana Pacers and the Toronto Raptors. They then faced the Boston Celtics in the Conference Finals. Winning the first game by 13 and setting the tone for the rest of the series, they won the next game by 44 points which broke the record of the biggest loss ever seen in Playoff history. Not only did they lose of a margin of 44 but  their star player went down with an injury and found out he would not be able to return for the rest of the playoffs. But the Luck of the Irish helped them beat the Cavs on their home court in game 3. Although the Luck didn’t last as long as the fans of Boston wanted it to last they lost game 4 by 13 points. The Cavs just have to win one more game and they will then face the undefeated Warriors of the West and we will have a rematch from last year.

    The Warriors are a really great team with KD and The Splash Bro. LeBron and the Cavs are a bunch of savages in the East. I like this article a lot because it lets me known about the series and how everything is going

    This will be one of the best finals yet because of the competetive nature of both of the teams, last year Lebron took home the trophie but golden state is a different team with KD on the roster. overall i think lebrons powerful perfomrmance in the the playoffs will win it all in 7 games
