Despite large margins of victory, Cavs-Warriors Finals as close as it gets

After a rather lopsided start, the 2016 NBA Finals has exponentially picked up steam and everyone will now be treated to a Game 7 at Oracle Arena.

It doesn’t get any better than this as Sunday’s contest isn’t expected to be any easier than the earlier home games of the Golden State Warriors this finals, especially with the Cleveland Cavaliers having already won in the loud house of the defending champions.

Interestingly, it’s not only the series score that is tied. Apparently, so is each team’s total points after six games. For what it’s worth, the Cavs and Warriors are currently deadlocked at 610 points apiece.

It’s amazing how they ended up this way because every win, from Game 1 till 6, was decided by 15, 33, 30, 11, 15, and 14 points, respectively. But despite the margins of difference, it hasn’t taken away that much from the electricity that this finals series has generated.

It’s no secret that these two teams have developed an enormous dislike for one another, and when the game tips off for the final 48 minutes, or so, of the 2015-2016 season, injuries, fatigue, and what not will all be brushed away for that one piece of hardware to be lifted in the end.
