NBA Finals predictions from Skip Bayless, Chris Broussard, more
Bayless' take: "The one thing about 3-point shooters, these two — Steph and Klay — you cannot lock them down. You can’t stop them from shooting. They stop themselves. They are often cold or they’re hot."
Sharpe's take: "I believe that J.T. (Jayson Tatum) and J.B. (Jaylen Brown), the matchup which they present for the Warriors, will be a problem. So that’s why I like them in seven games."
Wright's take: "I don’t think these games will be blowouts, and I think the late-game execution favors the Warriors greatly. And it should be noted that the Warriors, with a healthy Steph (Curry), Klay (Thompson) and Draymond (Green), are 21-1 under Steve Kerr in a playoff series."
Wildes' take: "Their defense is still No. 1 and has been the best since New Year’s Eve. I think they’ve got a lot of size that Golden State is going to have some issues to contend with. I don’t think they are intimidated by the Warriors. They won six of their last seven games in Golden State, and I think we are going to see Jayson Tatum ascend to an even higher level."
Broussard's take: "I think Golden State, because of their multiplicity of scorers, of options, the way they score — midrange, 3, back-door cuts, drives to the bucket — they will be too much, and they win it in seven, on the home floor."
Acho’s take: "Anything the Celtics can do, the Warriors can do better. … I love the Celtics. The only problem is, they are a knockoff version of the Warriors."
