Finally a series that's tough to predict! ...haha not really. Warriors will redeem themselves, taking it in game 5 because somehow they would rather have the poetry of another 3-1 series lead, then winning, instead of just going 16-0.

I really, really hope that this pans out as well as your "Warriors in 5" prediction last year. If they *really* want revenge, they'll spot Cleveland a 3-1 lead, then come back themselves.
My nerves have everything to do with how Cleveland did in Game 3 against the Celtics. Snappy ball movement and scoring coming from all over gave them fits, and I sure can't see Golden State going cold like the C's did after that game.

The other difference is the cap hit for each team. The Rockets would take a cap hit, each year of the contract, that amounts to the average of the salary owed for the length of the contract. It works out to about an $8 mil hit each year.
