The Cleveland Cavaliers have won eight straight games so far in the NBA playoffs. The eight games won in a row gives them an upsurd 8-0 record in the playoffs, sweeping both the Detroit Pistons and the Atlanta Hawks, both of which were predicted to grab atleast one game. The Cavs are awaiting the winner of the Miami Heat versus Toronto Raptors series. As of this moment, the Raptors hold the lead in the series 3-2 over the Heat. Regardless if the Heat pull a come from behind win and beat the Raptors in seven games or even if the Raptors put the Heat out of their misery in game six of the semifinals the winner of the series is going to lose to the Cavs. Book it now.
The Cavs have a few different things going for them at this time during the playoffs. First, much like the NFL playoffs whoever wins it all typically has one thing in common: Their team is healthy. The NBA playoffs are no different. As of now, the Cavs are the healthiest team remaining. This time last year, Kevin Love was out after the first round of the playoffs due to a shoulder injury. Kyrie Irving was later injured in the NBA finals with the Golden State Warriors. This year? Much different as the Cavs have no injuries as of now. The second reason why the Cavs will reach the finals with no problem? How about the fact the Toronto Raptors and Miami Heat are coming off seven games series of their own, not to mention it’s very probable we see them in another 7 game series of their own if the Heat can win on Friday night. That means the Cavs will not only be the healthiest team in the NBA playoffs that remain, but also the most rested team. And the last but certainly not least point why the Cavs will continue their dominance? The Cavs are shooting an outstanding 46.2% from the three point line and are even outshooting the Golden State Warriors who have a still impressive percentage of 41% from three.
The Cavs have everything going for them at the moment. Lebron James will go to his sixth straight NBA finals if the Cavs win the Eastern Conference Finals. Will the Cavs be able to muster up enough strength to defeat whichever team comes out of the West? We will see, but they won’t have too much trouble going through the East to get there.
