Brace yourselves: Warriors-Cavs 3-1 lead jokes are coming
MANILA, Philippines – In last year's NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors blew a 3-1 lead to their bitter rivals the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Warriors held tightly to a 2-0 lead but lost Game 3 and won Game 4. Then everything went south for the Warriors.
Cleveland clinched 3 consecutive victories to take the championship away and become the first-ever team in the NBA to come back from a 3-to-1 deficit.
Fast forward to present day, the dynamic duo of Kyrie Irving and LeBron James scored 40 and 31 points, respectively, to lead Cleveland to a 137-116 win on Friday, June 9 (Saturday Manila time) to prevent the Warriors from sweeping the best-of-7 series.
And what are the current standings of the 2017 NBA Finals? 3-1.
No one knows what the next chapter of the Cavs-Warriors finals showdown will hold but it didn't take a fortune teller to guess what was coming next: the 3-1 jokes and memes are back.
