Predictions for tonight?

My heart says Cleveland, but my head says Golden State.

I'll go with the heart though and say Cleveland +5

Rooting for Cleveland; it's a tossup- tough to win three in a row against a great team.

I've gotta say, though, after watching his media appearances throughout the playoffs, including the final one he did yesterday, Steve Kerr has to be the most personally likeable coach in the NBA.  I lived in Chicago in the mid 90s, and had respect for him as a player, but I didn't realize what a smart and astute guy he was.  He has this way of responding to the bullsh*t questions reporters tend to ask at press conferences ("How much pressure do you feel in this situation?"  "What would it be like to win/lose Game 7"  "What does Curry mean for your team?") that neither puts them down and belittles both the reporter and question, like, say Greg Popovich does (in a very entertaining way, though), or feeding them some vacuous mumbo-jumbo that all the coaches and players are trained to do nowadays.  He's able to be honest and genuine, calling attention to the absurdity that sports reporting often is, while simultaneously accepting whole heartedly as a small price to be paid for fame and fortune offered by the League:

im actually excited for this one! gs plays alot better when their back is against the wall. I think cavs iso ball will be their down fall. if barnes wants a max he better make up for it this game...they been sagging and daring him to shoot for the last 3 games and its better than hack a thompson.
When youre feeling depressed just treat yourself to a systainer even if its a mini systainer its ok.

What an incredible game.  Maybe not the best Game 7 in terms of level of play, but probably the most thrilling one I can remember since the Bulls final Championship win over the Jazz.

Every time GS sank a three, I thought it was going to get away from Cleveland, but they just hung around and kept on punching back.  And how fitting that a series of lopsided wins ended with a game that was so tight the whole way through?  And the drama of the last 30 seconds, where each team made crucial mistakes, then Cleveland's final possession, where James, who never gets hurt, goes down hard -- from the looks of it I thought he might've fractured his hand -- and then having to shoot those free throws to make it a two possession game; misses the first with that bum hand, but then ices the second.

Despite the triple double LeBron didn't even have that great of a game offensively (I think he was under 40% FGP), but this was ultimately a slug fest where the last man standing was going to win.  Just think of what his assist numbers would be if his teammates had actually made the shots they were supposed to?

I'm really happy for the city of Cleveland.

And Cleveland +4, so I was only 1 point off.
