“Final Crowd”

Golden States starts off to best the series.

Making gambling news, Golden State returns to the Finals for the first time in 40 years. Stephen Curry has been a driving force behind Golden State and is considered one of the best to play his position of point guard. The Cleveland Cavaliers, who have never won an NBA Finals game, are also chasing history. In addition, their superstar Lebron James is in his first year back at Cleveland since he left Cleveland to start his championship collection with the Miami Heat. Lebron is the first player to get to the NBA Finals five consecutive times with two different teams.
