4. Which Team Wins Crunch-Time
Nothing better than some fourth quarter crunch time, right? Well, the Cleveland Cavaliers beg to differ. Offensive efficiency has gone down as the game wears on for LeBron’s squad, dropping from 123.3 points per 100 possessions in the first quarter to 106.5 in the fourth. However, their defense has improved with each quarter, from allowing 110.4 points per 100 possessions in the first to just 94.2 in the fourth.
The Warriors have been the best fourth-quarter team in the playoffs, having outscored their opponents by 16.4 points per 100 possessions in the final period. Star power will play a key role in these pivotal game-time situations, meaning this series might come down to Curry vs. LeBron.
