Cavs are 8-0 in the playoffs so far. Two complete sweeps. Hawks made a real game of it in final 4th go. But still no one can hang with them. And as beat up as the Heat and Raptors are, I see zero chance of either even getting a single win against Cleveland.
12-0 to the finals. Last time we saw anything like this was the 2000-01 Lakers. They went 15-1, with the only loss coming in one overtime game. Not that I think the Cavs can sweep a team like the Spurs or Golden State, whoever gets it. But 12-0 is entirely possible. And 16-0.. that's not out of the question either.
No one is walking through the playoffs like Cleveland. Not even the Spurs. Maybe GSW could have, with Curry. But thems the brakes. Injuries are part of the sport. And if I had to pick a team right now, it would easily be the Cavs to win it all.
If OKC can make it a series with San Antonio, or even win and advance (tied at 2-2 now), and it's between them or the Curry-less GSW in the finals against the Cavs.. c'mon. We could actually see a 16-0 run. Perfect storm set; they just now have to take advantage and hope a few things fall their way.
