That would dig an even deeper hole for the Cavaliers than the one they already find themselves in after the first two games of the Finals.
There is no love lost between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers, in the NBA Finals for the third straight season. It's why few outside of people in the Cavaliers' corner believe Cleveland can win a game or two - if that.
According to the report, five of six would post the Warriors as the favorite. And you got to expect them to play, obviously, better at home. "I think his driving to the rim and his defense got him going and knocking down his three", Durant said. Both teams are different.
The Cavs can't do that with Durant in the game because he's too quick and versatile.
Game 3 against Golden State is Wednesday at 9 p.m.at Quicken Loans Arena. The Warriors don't have that same issue. The opposing triple-doubles in the postseason were the first scenario of its kind in the National Basketball Association since Game 2 of the 1980 Eastern Conference Finals between New York Knicks guard Walt Fraizer and Milwaukee Bucks center Lew Alcindor. Offensive sequences like that make beating the Warriors even harder. We will tell you all about Steve Kerr's health and recovery right here. "But we have to be better as far as not relaxing". So good, in fact, Stephen Curry said he feels like he's on a dating show when asked about his relationship with teammate Kevin Durant.
The Cavs could start with a lineup change.
When debating best team ever, today's world of perspiring arts sometimes gets caught up in the moment.
But a move like that comes with a risk. He has attended team meetings but watched all but three playoff games from the locker room as his team swatted aside Portland, Utah and San Antonio. "Their offense is constant movement, so you got to be locked in". "He's done that throughout his career, so we'll see what type of adjustments they make".
Finding Kyrie Irving better scoring opportunities and getting more production from Cleveland's non-Big Three is also necessary. The championship is history.
But this isn't all in a bubble of what Cleveland isn't doing.
One could argue the momentum swing is simply having Curry and Durant at Golden State's disposal.
There is a psychological component, too.
One problem is the Warriors are better at a fast pace than cars at the Indianapolis 500.
Golden State improved to 14-0 this postseason to keep alive a chance of becoming the first group to go unbeaten all the way to a title. You can see the frustration in Cleveland's body language. "They make you pay". "[I] think what helps them this time around is not only the revenge from past year but that 16-0 carrot is kinda sitting there to maybe motivate them a little bit". "You have to remain non-wavering whatever the outlook looks like".
"There's an eight on the stat sheet that I need to correct", he said.
