Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe explain their predictions for Cavaliers-Warriors Game 2

BY Dan Graf • June 2, 2017

The Cleveland Cavaliers routed the Golden State Warriors, 113-91, in Thursday night’s Game 1 of the NBA Finals, but that doesn’t mean things can’t change in Sunday’s Game 2. Skip Bayless predicted a 20-point win for Golden State in Game 1, and he and Shannon Sharpe offered up their predictions for the weekend rematch on Friday’s episode of “Undisputed.”

Bayless started by doubling down on his successful Game 1 forecast:

“Dangerous game, but I think Kevin Durant is going to remember what LeBron did to him and his Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 2 back in Oklahoma City in the 2012 Finals -- that he stole that game. And I think KD will say no to LeBron this time. … I’m going to say Draymond (Green) shows up offensively. I’m going to say we’ll have a sighting of Klay (Thompson) on offense as well as on defense. I’m going to do it again: I’ve got the Warriors by 20 on Sunday night.”

“I’m going to take the Cavaliers, 112-111. They’re going to play better, they’re not going to turn the basketball over like they did in Game 1. LeBron will be more efficient. We’ll get a little bit more from Kyle Korver, Deron Williams, J.R. (Smith) shows up and gives us 12 big points. 112-111, they go back to Cleveland, 1-1.”
