Welcome to The Lab, FiveThirtyEight’s basketball podcast. On Monday’s show (May 21, 2018), Neil and Kyle discuss where each conference finals series stands. Did Golden State’s resounding Game 3 win really change the tenor of that series? And what changed to allow LeBron James and the Cavaliers to run the Celtics out of the building in that series’s Game 3?
The Lab will be back with another episode later this week. In the meantime, keep an eye on FiveThirtyEight’s NBA predictions, which are updated after every game.
