Cleveland in 7

LeBron James is the MVP

Largest margin of victory 18 points

Highest combined score (single game) 217 points

Total 3-point goals 86

My ever unreliable gut instincts tell me that a healthy Cleveland team will have enough to win this series. The most interesting statistic I have heard is that Cleveland has made more 3-pointers than Golden State in the playoffs this year. It promises to be a fun series.
