Tonight is Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals. The Warriors hold a 1-0 advantage over the Cavs.

Game 1 was as eventful as we could have hoped. LeBron went off, J.R. Smith did whatever it was he did, the Warriors got hot in OT and there was even a late-game scuffle.

What can we expect tonight? Can Game 2 possibly top all of that?

Many are expecting the Warriors to win easily tonight. After all, so much went right for Cleveland in Game 1 and they still couldn't win.

ESPN has released its statistical picks for tonight’s game. The Warriors are heavily favored.

Using the NumberFire metrics, Golden State has a 76 percent shot to win tonight.

ESPN prediction for Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals will tip off tonight at 8 p.m. ET.

ABC will broadcast the action.
