This is the 71st season of the NBA. The Warriors have been in Golden State since '71.
If the Warriors win these Finals, they'll be 5-4, something like '54'. Oracle = 54
If they lose, they'll become 4-5, with their latest loss to the 'Cavs'. Cavs = 45; Holy Bible = 45
The Cavs will become either 2-2 in NBA Finals, or 1-3.
In light of how huge '13' was last season.... it is possible they lose. That said, 2-2 would be something like '22', or the number representing 'Basketball'.
Honestly, if I was a gambler, I wouldn't touch these NBA Finals as a Series, but on a game by game basis, looking for the ultimate clue. It is very hard because the two teams have the same numbers stacked on them this season, especially with #35 Durant going to Warriors.
