    The NBA Finals are set. For the second time in four years we have a rematch of the Finals. The Cavaliers are looking to avenge last year's loss when they played without Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love and fell in 6. Golden State looks to cap off a historic season with a championship. After seeing how impressive the Warriors were coming back from 3-1 against the Thunder it's hard to pick against them, but I have it going 7 games with the Warriors winning once again a decisive Game 7 at Oracle Arena.

    I have it going 6 or 7 games, not sure who wins though. Warriors match up better with the Cavs, we must not forget that this isn't the same Cavs team during the regular season that lost to GS twice. It's not going to be easy for either team. Should be a competitive series though.

    I am def going with the warriors on this one. My only concerns are the warriors ability to rebound and to guard channing frye. if they can do that, I feel confident they can take it

    -Cavs have yet to show an answer for GS small lineup ... I don't think they have one .

    -Warriors are one of the best at defending the 3

    - Iggy will make the Queen cry again

    It will be over in 5 or 6

    Warriors in five. They'll win it at home. The Cavs get hot for one game, but they haven't played anyone even close to Golden State's level in months. They don't know what real hunger looks like.

    Golden State is going to crush the Cavs.

    Caves will have a little fight in them, and won't be put out at the first opportunity, but they won't be able to string 2 wins together.

    Warriors in 6

    I think the OKC scare has made Golden State better.

    GS in 7. It will be close though, but I don't think Cleveland has an answer for the splash bros.

    I've been waiting for this rematch since last year....I want GS to prove once and for all that it WOULD NOT HAVE MATTERED if the Cavs were healthy or not last year....I want them to CRUSH the Cavs. I hope it's GS in 5....but it'll likely be GS in 7 because league is going to want to extend this series as much as they can.

    I want brooms but it will probably be a 6 or 7 game series.

    GS in 5. Maybe 6 if Cavs get hot from 3.

    Warriors have been tested. Cavs have not. I give the edge to the Warriors in this matchup. I think Cavs will get at least two on their home floor. So I see this going six or seven.

    Best thing to happen to the Warriors was the 7 game series against OKC, it came at the right time too. Entering the finals on a 3 game win streak being down 1-3 and two blowouts, they have all the momentum. Warriors in 5.

    Whatever it takes, beat the Cavs.

    Please.

    I would love to see GS winning...they just have a lot of likable guys on their roster.

    I also want to see Love suffer for being dumb and extending with the Cavs. And Lebron losing the Finals for the 5th time is also enticing.

    Look at that schedule! Lots of rest. Spreading it to 3 weekends by getting to game 7? Not suspicious at all...
