Free ATS Pick for the NBA Finals Game 2: Cavs vs. Warriors

And easy isn't supposed to happen, especially not at the rim in the NBA Finals. Look for a great Golden State crowd to anchor the win for the Warriors to win their second straight game, and head to Cleveland up 2-0. Durant got at least three wide open dunks in transition when a Cavs defender dove towards a shooter in the corner.
