Last week, the Cleveland Cavaliers were seconds away from stealing Gm1 of the NBA Finals. In Las Vegas, the Golden Knights had won Gm1 against the Capitals, and bookie's paying $100,000 on $200 future bets were sweating bullets.
What a difference a week makes. Neither the Cavs or the NBA Finals recovered from the Cavs' Gm1 collapse. The Warriors claimed the Larry O'Brien Trophy Friday, winning in Cleveland 108-85. The NHL Finals ended almost as quickly--although the games were tight. The 3rd period of Gm5 was one highlight after another, the Capitals coming from behind to win 4-3, hoisting the Stanley Cup for the first time in franchise history.
EricCinTX (42) earned his first GridCard Win, calling everything right except LeBron and a DBack Ticker. JohnnyRan (37) finished second--in both games--and earned the King Kong (75). GB55 (35) and CraigW (34) defeated the ProGrid Tour which was won by MMc (32) over Teunesto (32) on the second tie-breaker: most Confidence Games called correctly over both games. Rico (31) was the only other Gridder to post a Qualifying Score.
