ESPN BPI gives Cavs just 7% chance of winning NBA Championship
As a result of their 135-102 victory over the Boston Celtics in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals, the NBA’s defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers have advanced to face the Golden State Warriors in the championship round for a third consecutive season.
If you’re a basketball fan, you know exactly how the first two chapters of this epic saga have played out. It’s the rubber match of all rubber matches. Both teams are ready to settle this feud once and for all.
In what seems to be a blindsided back-hand, ESPN’s Basketball Power Index is giving the Cavaliers a shockingly low chance of winning the upcoming series against the Warriors.
The Cavs' odds of winning this NBA title against the Warriors are a little higher than their odds of coming back from down 3-1 last Finals. pic.twitter.com/MW9vL7xJFh

Game 1 of the NBA Finals is set for June 1st at 9:00 p.m. on TNT. Maybe Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue can use these graphics as locker room bulletin board material.
