NBA Finals | UBET

The NBA Finals are once again with us for another season and it is a repeat of the 2014/15 and last season's series. UBET has installed the runner-up Golden State Warriors as favourites to emerge victorious in Game I and overall, while the all-star Cleveland Cavaliers, who boast LeBron James, Kevin Love and Aussie-born Kyrie Irving are expected to provide stiff competition.

The Warriors have plenty of star power in their own ranks with last year's MVP Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and prized recruit Kevin Durant.

In their last playoff series, the Cavaliers managed to fight their way back from a 1-3 deficit to clinch the trophy for the first time in Cleveland's history. The seventh and deciding match is famous for the powerful display by Finals MVP LeBron James and in particular that immense defensive play where he blocked a seemingly easy lay-up from Curry.

The Warriors will probably be a fraction fresher than the Cavs, with LeBron’s men playing one extra match in the previous three series. Cleveland disposed of a brave Celtics last weekend and would have been keen to face the Warriors in the Finals for a shot at back-to-back titles.
