Locky: Why I’m Taking the Cavs and the Points in Game 2

Jun 03, 2018 5:25 PM EDT

OK, so I’ll be the first to admit I got lucky in Game 1. The over needed a little help (although just a tiny bit), and sure enough, JR Smith provided it. So I know all the people out there are trashing you, JR, but I just want to let you know I appreciate you. You and me, we’re good.

You know who isn’t good, though? Tony Brothers. With three seconds remaining in overtime, he called a flagrant 2 foul on Tristan Thompson, and I lost a prop on whether there would be a flagrant foul called in the series (I had “no” at +250). That was tragic.

 

Thirdly, I talked a lot about Klay Thompson MVP futures before the game started, and they went from completely dead to slightly less dead, to “hey, that’s not bad,” and now he’s questionable for Game 2. What a roller coaster. He can definitely still win since Kevin Durant was so bad in Game 1. It’s really anyone’s award still. Even LeBron’s, but the series probably has to go for a bit.

Anyway, enough small betting anecdotes. There’s another game Sunday night, and I’ll be betting it.
