Welcome to The Lab, FiveThirtyEight’s basketball podcast. On Monday’s show (June 4, 2018), Neil and Kyle discuss the state of the NBA Finals, which the Golden State Warriors lead 2-0. They ask whether the Warriors’ Stephen Curry is finally going to get a finals MVP award, analyze why the Cavaliers are losing even though they’re not playing terribly, and talk about how Cleveland could turn the series around at home.
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.
