The Cavs blew a great opportunity to win Game 1 at the end and then couldn’t find a way to get a grip of Game 2. Although they were competitive – cutting the lead down to five points in the third quarter – they trailed by double digits for most of the fourth and rested their starters by the end.
For the Warriors, they had no problems at the offensive end, scoring 122 points while shooting 57.3% from the field. They were outrebounded, coughed up more turnovers and shot worse from the free throw line, yet won by 19. That’s a scary thought. The Cavs’ defense needs to step up, as life was too easy for guys like Kevin Durant (10-of-14), JaVale McGee (six-of-six), Shaun Livingston (five-of-five) and Klay Thompson (eight-of-13). And Steph Curry hit an NBA Finals record nine three-pointers. If the Cavs don’t find any answers defensively, this could be a quick series.
