Cleveland Cavaliers vs Golden State Warriors (By: Khum)


Regular Season

Cleveland Cavaliers - Golden State Warriors

The champions have back their leades, in Steph Curry and are once again in the position to rely on their tremendous backcourt with both Splash Brothers alive and kickin'.

They are now without their starting center, Damian Jones, which is out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle. Jones was playing 15-20 minutes per game and while Draymond Green and Demarcus Cousins are still not ready to come back tjose minutes will be filled by Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell and Jonas Jerebko.

Since Green is out with his toe injury the Golden State opponents thrived in the paint. Even more since Jones is out too.

Now thay will face Tristan Thompson, which kinda' entered in monster mode in the past weeks, posting in points+rebounds+assists numbers like 39, 25, 35, 37, 19, 19, 29, 31, 38, 30, 8, 29, 40, 35. So he impressively exceeded this 26.5 line except the two games against Oklahoma (25 and 8), the best defensive team in NBA for the moment, where Steven Adams seems too much for him to deal with, the game against Detroit (19) where solid stoppers like Drummonsd + Griffin were protecting the rims, and against Washington (19) where there was Dwight Howard in front of him and he only played 19 minutes, way below his average of 30 minutes.

While the Warriors are giving up, in average, 10 more points per game without Draymond Green than with him on the floor, Golden State is 6-3 in over/under since Green is sidelinedand.

George Hill is back for the Cavs and they are scoring with him 7 points per 10 possesions more that when he is sitting.

Thus being said, I expect some profitable events tonight:

Golden State to win & ver 222 points scored in the game @ 2.13 (not available at Pinnacle and Bet365);

Over 222 poins scored in the game @ 1.952

Tristan Thompson to record over 26.5 points, rebounds and assists @ 1.813

(I actually see him going around 35 - 40)

How do you like it, see it?

Best of luck, guys, and let's go green!

Yo, you can actually combine moneyline or handicaps with totals like you want to on Bet365. Just make a double. :)

That player prop bet about Thompson is very good, i’m a bit more concerned about the over, as in their last 4, the Cavs havn’t scored more than 99pts.
Best of luck though!

David, thanks for the tip! :)
A actually never liked Bet365 so I wasn't aware of them bringing in this option (as I guess is newer than 4 years, which is the time since I haven't played on their platform).

Zoubir, the appearances lead to a under. Yet I think in this particular matchup there are some mismatches (GSW having the upper hand in the backcourt while the Cavs have in the front court) that will lead to a bigger scoring match.

Ufo, can you explain your comment?

Admin, Thompson has recorded 18 rebounds, 3 assists and 14 points.
I guess you didn't count the points when putting that 22 there :)
12/06/2018 - 12:49
Khum, sorry, my mistake. I counted Thompson K. points and not Tristan.

Corrected now :)

You've got good tastes ... looking for the better player ;)
Too many Thompsons on the board :)))
Two days ago there were two Holiday brothers playing one against the other :))))
