The Golden State Warriors take another shot at clinching their second straight title when they visit the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 6 of the championship series. Tip-off is set for 9 PM ET at Quicken Loans Arena where the Cavs are trying to become the first team ever to overcome a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals. They’ll need another sizzling effort from Kyrie Irving and LeBron James, who combined for 82 points in Monday’s 112-97 victory.

The Warriors (88-16, 59-43 ATS) will be at full strength with the return of Draymond Green who was suspended for Game 5. Green was sorely missed on both ends but most notably on offense where Golden State went 3 of 22 from 3-point range in the second half on Monday after draining 11 of 21 before the break. It’s been a sub-par series for league MVP Stephen Curry who went 8 of 21 from the field on Monday and is averaging 22.2 points on 42.4 percent shooting in the series, down from a league-best 30.1 points on 50.4 percent in the regular season.

The Cavs (71-30, 48-50 ATS) needed historic performances from James and Irving to extend the series and they delivered. The duo became the first pair of teammates in NBA Finals history to score at least 40 points in the same game when they both finished with 41 in Game 5.

The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Cleveland and 7-3 last 10 overall.

The UNDER is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings while the Cavs are 7-1 to the low side in their last eight home games.

“Turn out the Lights, the Party’s Over” is an old country music classic that was made famous by Dandy Don Meredith—back in the day– on Monday Night Football. It’s a song that the Cleveland Cavaliers will be singing UNLESS they find a win to win three straight games against the Golden State Warriors beginning with tonight’s Game 5 in Oakland. The defending champion Warriors lead the NBA finals 3-1.

The Cavaliers (70-30, 47-50 ATS) is well aware no team has ever recovered from a 3-1 series deficit to win the NBA Finals. Then there’s the fact that the Cavaliers lost the first two games of the series at Oracle Arena by an average of 24 points. James has done his part averaging 24.8 points, 11 rebounds and 8.3 assists in the series. However he’s also averaged 5.8 turnovers per game.

The Warriors (88-15, 59-42 ATS) will be without All-Star Draymond Green who received a one-game suspension flagrant 1 foul on Sunday for a Game 4 incident in which he hit Cleveland forward LeBron James in the groin. Two-time MVP Stephen Curry looks like he’s back on track after scoring 38 points in the 108-97 victory in Game 4, this after he averaged just 16 points in the first three games and didn’t even have a 20-point outing before regaining his form and setting the tone for the road victory

Cleveland is 3-9 ATS in its last 12 visits to Oakland and 1-4 ATS in the last five overall. Even more distressing for the Cavs: they’re 1-6 vs. the number in their last seven NBA championship games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

The Cleveland Cavaliers look to square the NBA finals at a win apiece when they visit the Golden State Warriors in tonight’s prime time affair. The Warriors took the series opener 104-89 jumping out to a 1-0 lead for the second year in a row.

The Cavaliers (69-28, 46-48 ATS) held Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to a combined 20 points on 27 shots but still lost by 15. They were outscored 45-10 in bench points and saw Golden State score 25 points off turnovers. LeBron James had 23 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists in Game 1 but also committed four turnovers. The Cavaliers are averaging 13.9 made 3-pointers in the playoffs – tops in the NBA – but went 7 of 21 from beyond the arc in the series opener.

The Warriors (86-14, 57-41 ATS)have won six straight games against the Cavaliers dating back to last season’s Finals. While Curry and Thompson struggled, Golden State’s bench Ike Iguodala, Shawn Livingston and Leandro Barbosa combined to shoot 18-of-24 from the field to pick up the slack for their star teammates, who appreciated the effort.

Golden State is 4-0 ATS in its last four championship games and 4-0 ATS in its last four home games. The Warriors are also 4-0 ATS in their past four games.

Cleveland is 6-2 ATS vs. the number in its last eight but is 0-4 ATS in its last four NBA title games.

The UNDER is 5-1 in the Cavs last six games vs. the Western Conference while the Warriors are 5- to the low side last five vs. the Eastern Conference.

The NBA Finals get underway Thursday, and we’ll see a rematch of last year’s Finals when the Warriors defeated the Cavs to win the Championship. Last year the Cavs were short-handed, with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving both sidelined due to injury. With Cleveland at full strength, we could see some higher scores than we saw in the Finals a year ago.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Three-Point Shooting – The Cavs were not a three-point shooting team during the regular season, but they’ve been launching a ton of three-point shots in the playoffs. They broke an NBA record for made three-pointers in their series versus Atlanta, and averaged over 40 attempted three-pointers per game against the Raptors. The Warriors live and die with their long range shooting, as evidenced by Klay Thompson’s heroic performance with 11 made threes in Game 6.

2. Previous History – The Warriors failed to reach the total in five of seven games versus the Thunder, but the number in those games was an average of 10 points higher than the number for Game 1 versus the Cavs. The last time these teams met, the Warriors won 132-98 at Cleveland. The Cavs have gone over in eight of their last 11 road games.

3. X-Factor – LeBron James is coming off his highest scoring game of the playoffs, totaling 33 points in 41 minutes in Game 6 versus Toronto.

Selection: This is a play on the Cavs@Warriors to go OVER the total (Free)
