After a fierce start to the NBA Finals with unbelievable victories and unpredictable upsets, it all comes down to Game 6, where defending champions Golden State Warriors will face off the Cleveland Cavaliers who have momentum on their side. With victory just one game away for the Warriors, and the Cavaliers on a rebound that stole away their opponent’s early win, which team has what it takes to win it all?
Let’s take a look at the NBA Finals so far. The Warriors currently lead with 3 wins and the Cavaliers have 2, so the Warriors need just one more victory in the 7-game format to retain their crown. Led by Mr. 3-Pointer Stephen Curry, who was named the MVP for the second straight season, the Warriors’ roster includes his partner-in-crime Klay Thompson, and when he teams up with Curry they splash the net with some seriously skilled three-pointers, which is where the Splash Brothers nickname comes from. Also on the Team Warriors side is Draymond Green who owns the defense by playing and defending multiple positions, working set pieces and spacing the floor. Coming off a recent suspension for flagrant fouls, this match could be a chance at redemption for Green to do what he does best: deny hoop access.
While the Cavaliers are looking for payback for last year’s defeat, they will have to rise to the challenge to keep their NBA championship dreams alive. Coming off an incredible Game 5, the Cavs are led by powerhouses like LeBron James and Kevin Love, players capable of putting massive dents in the Warriors’ plans. Players like Kyrie Irving have the agility to take advantage of the slightest breaks on the court, what with him and James scoring a partnership of 41 points each in Game 5. With an arsenal ready to seize victory, this game presents a do-or-die moment for the Cavs, and be assured that they will give it their all.
With both sides equally determined and poised to alter destinies, Game 6 will decide if the Golden State Warriors slam-dunk their way to a second NBA championship title in a row or if the Cleveland Cavaliers turn the tables to take things down to the wire in Game 7. No matter who you root for, Game 6 is sure to be one epic court scorcher. To get you in the zone for some heavy baller action, here’s our selection of basketball gear.
