Heading into the NBA playoffs, you would expect that all the pressure would be on the team defending the crown, which in this case is the Cleveland Cavaliers. While they certainly have some pressure to overcome, it’s also fair to say that they have been written off by a lot of people, especially when you look at how poor they were coming down the stretch. The reality this year is that the biggest burden of all would appear to be sitting on the shoulders of the Golden State Warriors. There are those who would suggest that this team essentially gave the title to the Cavs last year after blowing a 3-1 series lead in the finals. Had they won that, they would be a 2-time defending champion who got even stronger this season with the acquisition of Kevin Durant. This is an undeniably great team, and the feeling among many experts is that they are going to be unstoppable this postseason. They have certainly looked that way through the opening 2 games, and they will get the chance to show off the goods once again in Game 3 in Portland on Saturday night.
