The Warriors will be looking to go 3-0 in this series while Cleveland will be looking to avoid Game 4 becoming a potential elimination (and sweep) scenario.

Both of the Warriors recent victories against the Cavs have been decisive double-digit victories.  Those two games, however, have been won at home. expert Steve Merril says: “It will be interesting to see if history repeats itself in the NBA Finals this year.  Just like last season, the Warriors have gone 2-0 SU/ATS at home in the first two games.  Golden State came out flat in Game 3 last year and lost by 30 points at Cleveland.  The situation is similar, but also different this year.  While the Warriors once again have a 2-0 series lead, they also have the memory of blowing a 3-1 series lead last year and losing the championship.  Golden State now has Kevin Durant on the team and the Cavaliers have been unable to stop him.  Durant was been the leading scorer in both Games 1 & 2 with 38 and 33 points.  The oddsmakers have made a substantial line adjustment based on the recent results.  The initial look-ahead line for Game 3 was Cleveland -2 when this series began last week, and now the Cavaliers are a +3/+3.5 point home underdog.”
