ONTARIO, OH- The NBA Finals are starting to get interesting with the Cleveland Cavaliers scoring a monster 137-116 win over Golden State to win Game 4. As the series shifts back to Oakland for Game 5 on Monday evening, confidence amongst Cavs fans is growing despite Cleveland facing a 3-1 deficit. 

To get a feel for how fans in the local area are viewing the Finals, WMFD's Brian Skowronski camped out in front of Buffalo Wild Wings in Ontario to panhandle patrons for their thoughts on the series. Though it took a while for the contributions to roll in, fans would eventually pile on the Cavaliers growing bandwagon with most predicting the NBA champions to defend their title in seven games. 

Unfortunately for Cavs fans, Golden State would close out the series with a 129-120 win in Game 5 to win the NBA championship, so most of their predictions would prove to be false. Still have to appreciate the confidence and support they showed to the squad throughout the season all the way to the end.
