The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors will both be trying to pick up a win on Thursday when they battle at Oracle Arena.

ABOUT THE CAVALIERS: Small forward LeBron James averaged 29.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 8.9 assists in last season’s Finals and has been superb this postseason with averages of 32.5 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. Point guard Kyrie Irving is averaging 24.5 points this postseason while Love is contributing 17.2 points and 10.4 rebounds. The Cavaliers will be hoping that swingman Kyle Korver (6.4 postseason average) and guards J.R. Smith (6.6) and Iman Shumpert (4.7) step up their performances in the series.

ABOUT THE WARRIORS: Golden State hasn’t lived down the memory of blowing a 3-1 lead in last season’s finals, the turning point being a one-game suspension handed to Green after a flagrant foul for kicking James in the groin during Game 4. Small forward Kevin Durant (25.2 average) is a new part of the mix while point guard Stephen Curry (28.6) has once again been leading the postseason charge. Shooting guard Klay Thompson is averaging a lackluster 14.4 points on 38.3 percent shooting in the postseason but he scored 25 or more three times – including a high of 37 – in last year’s Finals.

Oddsmakers currently have the Warriors listed as 7-point favorites versus the Cavaliers, while the game’s total is sitting at 225½.

The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers clash in the NBA Finals for the third straight season and the festivities begin Thursday in Oakland, Calif. The Warriors won the title two years ago and the Cavaliers rallied from a 3-1 deficit last season to win their first-ever title.

Golden State is 12-0 this postseason and viewed as heavy favorites in Finals matchup No. 3, and that doesn’t sit right with Cleveland power forward Kevin Love. “The whole underdog thing is funny to me, because, yeah, at the end of the day we are defending our title,” Love told reporters. “We’re trying to repeat, which is so hard to do. I think we will use it as fuel, we will use it as motivation, but the idea of playing into it? It’s tough for me to say that is the case. I don’t feel like we’re underdogs.” The Cavaliers also have been strong this postseason with a 12-1 mark and Warriors forward Draymond Green sees the series as a matchup of “greatness,” and doesn’t understand why there appears to be a lack of appreciations for how both teams rolled through the postseason. “I think you’ve found two great teams, and we’ve played that way, and maybe people don’t appreciate it because of a blowout or because of a sweep,” Green said. “But people may want to be careful, because I think right now you’re witnessing greatness. Two great teams, great players, and that’s what it is.”

The Warriors were a 129-115 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Spurs. They covered the -11-point spread as favorites, while the total score (244) made winners of OVER bettors.

Last time out for Cleveland, they were a 135-102 winner as they battled the Celtics on the road. The Cavaliers covered in the match as a -9.5-point favorite, while 237 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
