THERE'S no stopping a Cleveland Cavaliers-Golden State Warriors NBA finals rematch, say a pair of Bendigo Braves teammates.
With the Cavs leading Boston 1-0 in the eastern conference finals and the Warriors holding a 2-0 edge over the San Antonio Spurs in the west, backcourt partners Dyami Starks and Adam Doyle backed last season's finalists to continue on their merry way.
"There's not a soul on earth who can't stop LeBron James, so I'll definitely take the Cavs," Starks said.
The Cavs showed no signs of rust in their game one win over the Celtics on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Doyle predicted the Warriors would be too slick for the aging Spurs.
"They are getting out running and getting easy scores ... and they are moving the ball so well," he said.
"Everyone talks about the Spurs moving the ball well and getting the open looks, but Golden State are doing exactly that to them.
"When you are three of the best shooters in the league, it’s tough to defend."
