By Dave Schwab
Both Cleveland in the East and Golden State in the West have posted some big wins early in their best-of-seven conference finals series to take that first step towards setting up the rubber match in this season’s NBA Finals after each team won a world title against the other over the past two years. Over in the NHL Conference Finals, it is starting to look like an unlikely matchup between Ottawa and Nashville in the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals given the current results in both of those best-of-seven series.
