The 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers are again the favorites to represent the East in the NBA Finals. Cleveland played down to Detroit in the first six halves of their first round matchup. The second half of game two is when the Cavaliers started to figure out the Pistons. Cleveland outscored the young Pistons 52-37 in the second half of game two. Cleveland head coach Tyronn Lue expects his team to close out the “LOUD MOUTH” want to be bad boys. The Cavaliers have been hearing all kinds of talking from the Pistons, but they can’t seem to close out games in the fourth quarter. Cleveland is a veteran group who will continue to expose their young but talented first-round opposition. The series moves to the Wolverine State and fans will be out in force rooting against the team from the “BUCKEYE STATE”. You can call the Cavaliers vs. Pistons series OHIO STATE/MICHIGAN NBA Style. The key to a Cleveland victory is to play with composure and keep making three-point shots.
The Detroit Pistons have one of the best tacticians in the league. President and Head Coach Stan Van Gundy is playing with house money this season. Many experts around the league thought the Pistons were a year away from making the postseason. Van Gundy expects his team to play and carry themselves like professionals. Detroit has plenty of talent, especially in the post with All-Star Andre Drummond, who is a mid-range jump shot away from being a superstar. Van Gundy is also stressing ball control; turnovers are killing the young team. Starting Point Guard Reggie Jackson can compete with Kyrie Irving. Tobias Harris, acquired in a trade late in the season has postseason experience. The former Milwaukee and Orlando forward must keep the youngsters in focus. The Pistons must also get the ball to open shooters. Jackson has the ball in his hands too much of the times. The key to a Detroit victory in game three is to play tighter defense.
Detroit is 3-1 Against The Spread the last four between the teams.
The Betting Odds Over The Total are 5-2 the last seven times the team has met.
