Where's the drama? Blowouts the rule in these NBA playoffs

Where's the drama? Blowouts the rule in these NBA playoffs

The singer appeared at a concert in South Africa wearing throwback Cleveland Cavaliers shorts on Thursday, a sure sign that he's favoring the gang from Lake Erie to beat the Golden State Warriors in their inevitable clash in the NBA Finals.

Now Golden State is up 2-0 on San Antonio - though Zaza Pachulia taking out Kawhi Leonard certainly helped - and Cleveland is up 1-0 on Boston.

Starks' dunk, Larry Johnson's 4-point play and more Conference Finals highlights. A new year begins and there are usually four, maybe five teams with a realistic shot of winning the title. Cleveland plays in Boston on Friday night, in Game 2 of the Eastern finals, and even away from OH it should be favored. However, that has not kept Leonard from playing at an MVP level throughout this playoff stretch although the Spur's star was injured in game one of the Western Conference Finals after an ankle injury and is questionable for game two.

Furthermore, the Eastern Conference Finals shall also be opened by Cleveland Cavaliers tonight in Boston.

It appears that Justin Bieber is back on the LeBron James train.

If James does make his seventh consecutive Finals appearance, it will in part be due to the prior six. But the longer a King rules, the more hard he becomes to dethrone, as even opponents-whatever they say in public-must wonder privately whether it's even worth the effort. The Cavaliers won the regular season series between the two clubs, 3-1. The defending champions will face the Celtics in a series they are heavily favoured to win despite not having home court advantage. But we've got to be ready Game 3. Instead they came back from 25 down, regaining confidence that they had never even lost. And Klay Thompson, who scored six points on 2-11 shooting, hasn't even shown up yet.

So more games will be played, and on June 1 the NBA Finals will start. "It's worked the last couple of years for us, so we just continue to do it". The Warriors learned that no series lead is safe, while the Cavaliers learned that no series deficit is insurmountable. And, yes, it's conceivable that both could enter The Finals with 12-0 records for this postseason.

As evident so far in the 2017 NBA Playoffs, the answer is a resounding no.
