Remember that game during the regular season when Kevin Love hit ALL THE 3s!? He’s doing it again. (UPDATE: He’s 4 for 5 from behind the arc.)
Sloppy start by the Cavs. Overconfidence? (EDIT: Soon as I write that, Kyrie lobs to Tristan Thompson.) And now a timeout by Boston with Cleveland up 14-7.
While the Warriors hope to smell the roses and avoid the Cavaliers’ phytocidal tendencies, an upset loss would feel like staphylotomy. You can’t have obliviscence that this time, Golden State has Kevin Durant to flank the chryselephantine ways of Stephen Curry.
If Curry’s shooting goes south like an outarde, however, it might put the Warriors right under a catafalque. A Cavs road win in Game 1 or 2 would allow them to drive a whirlicote right back to Cleveland with thoughts of repeating.
Expect the action to be perinephric between the NBA’s two best teams, and not the stinky surimi that has been the rest of the playoffs. The Warriors put their proveditor to work to be better equipped for these finals, and anything less than a championship will be a letdown.
There’s nothing epoptic or arachnophagous about either team — they share the common goal of bringing home the poinciana. It’s that, or the muggy feeling of a cinerarium.
Who will be elidible? Who will enjoy the vendage? Expect a seven-game diastole through which the fingernails will seem esculent.
