Spence Checketts and Austin Horton tipped of “The Big Show” on Thursday afternoon with an all-NBA Finals “Split Story of the Day.”
First up, game three was electric, dramatic, and showed what the Cavaliers are capable of doing. The problem with that, though, is Cleveland’s best is still not enough to beat the Warriors. This now means that instead of having a reason to tune in for a pivotal game four on Friday night, it’ll be more of a formality as Golden State takes a 3-0 lead in the Finals.
Secondly, Steve Kerr made some waves after the game by saying the Warriors are Kevin Durant’s team. Spence and Austin debated whether Kerr backed off those comments at all to save the relationship between he and some of the other players, or if he was simply explaining his opinion that KD is in the right place, with the right teammates, at the right time.
