  • Warriors in 5, maybe 6.  The Cavs aren't going to be able to win games scoring 87 points.
  • #3 by 311Hog on 29 May 2018
  • i sure hope Iggy is back
  • #4 by East Clintwood on 29 May 2018
  • Anybody but the Cavs
  • #5 by SardisHog on 29 May 2018
  • As much as I like to see James play I thing GSW has too much for him and the cavs
  • #6 by hogwood on 29 May 2018
  • Cavs in 7. Destiny for one of (perhaps THE) best season in James' career.

  • What a shot by Curry To tie it up at the half!
  • #8 by PonderinHog on 31 May 2018
  • On a situational awareness scale of 0-10, I'd have to give that a -99.   ::)

  • James' talent can't compensate for the idiocy of his teammates.
  • #10 by TomasPistola on 31 May 2018
  • The look that Lebron gave Smith was epic. That was worth watching the whole game. Wow.

    May be time to take those talents elsewhere...

    As long as LJ is in the series there is a chance. But GS wins it.

    Well Cleveland has to win one in Golden State and I donít think they will have a better chance than their first game. They really blew that game.
  • #17 by EastexHawg on 06 Jun 2018
  • Basic human nature says the Cavaliers will come out tonight and play with a sense of desperation while the Warriors might be subconsciously content, knowing they can afford to lose a game.  The question is...how much killer instinct does Golden State have?  If they win tonight this series is basically over, at least in terms of who the eventual champion will be, so do they come out and try to stomp on Cleveland's throats from the very beginning?

    My guess is that if the Warriors' shooters...Curry, Durant, Thompson...are hitting early and they get the lead they will become motivated and go for the jugular.  Their defense will be stifling, as it was on Game 2, and they could pull away in the second half.  Otherwise a sense of complacency may set it whether they realize it or not.

  • Lebron talking to the Warriors this summer
  • #19 by Breems on 06 Jun 2018
  • So Warriors in 4.
  • #20 by Buff on 06 Jun 2018
  • Bron looked scared of KD.  He let someone else guard the guy scoring all the points.
  • #21 by EastexHawg on 06 Jun 2018
  • Wow, Warriors win in Cleveland despite Curry having the worst shooting game I have seen from him and Thompson getting off to a poor start, too. 

    Durant was tremendous and he needed to be.  Other than that, I thought the difference was Golden State's defense.  They are playing LeBron as well as I have seen anyone do it.

  • It is over now. Goes to show you can't do it all by yourself.
  • #23 by HawgPilot on 07 Jun 2018
  • Done!  GS wins this Friday night.

  • Bron looked scared of KD.  He let someone else guard the guy scoring all the points.

    Van Gundy made a good point about how the defenses are capitulating to just giving the offense the switch that they want.  It's baffling that Durant will be standing still and dribbling 40-feet from the basket and the Cavaliers will switch if Curry runs across the court and waves at Durant.  Durant isn't even trying to make a basketball move. As if you can't afford to go under the screen at halfcourt. The concession even made the slip screen more effective when Curry faked the "screen" when Hood was expecting to switch.  Then the Cavaliers leave the middle wide open and stick to McGee, Livingston, and Green on the perimeter like they are the Splash Brothers. 

    At the other end Lebron can get Curry one-on-one any time he wants by the same half-hearted tactic, though the Warriors are better at rotating to provide some resistance to the drive.  Golden State is still conceding him a lot of too-easy baskets.  Perhaps that is part of a strategy to wear him down.  I don't see any logic at all at giving Durant what he wants when he has been going off for four quarters.  The numbers that the greats are putting up are being inflated by the rules, how spread out the defense is with the perimeter shooting, and just lousy defense.  Durant did make a lot of highly contested shots last night, though.  He was incredible.

  • Switching defense = Lazy defense. Hardly anyone has any pride in owning another player defensively.
  • #26 by Breems on 08 Jun 2018
  • That was so boring.
  • #27 by Buff on 08 Jun 2018
  • Worst finals I can remember

    Worst finals I can remember

    Sure was on both counts. I called it a sweep, and thanks to JR it was. If I were building a team my first pick is KD.

  • Loved Stephen A Smith's take on the embarrassment that was the Cleveland Cavaliers.
    Regarding Lebron's hand he said " broke hand, fractured bone whatever the heck it is" isn't an excuse for the lack of effort.
    Said "Lebron quit and his teammates followed".

    Tired of hearing about Lebron's hand - instead of what a great team Golden State is.

  • #30 by EastexHawg on 09 Jun 2018
  • Why is it some sort of national emergency that LeBron James doesn't have a loaded lineup of NBA greats surrounding him so that winning championships is highly possible if not likely?  Wilt Chamberlain, maybe the greatest player in NBA history, spent the overwhelming majority of his career with mediocre supporting casts while going up against a Hall of Fame laden Celtics dynasty.  Were people constantly lamenting and calling for something to be done to right the wrong that had befallen Wilt?

    Not to mention the fact that LeBron pretty much started this "let's get a super team together so we can win championships" thing when he talked to Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh about teaming up in Miami. 

    Right now he has the only active player to average 26 points and 14 rebounds, Kevin Love, as a teammate and until this year also had Kyrie Irving with him in Cleveland.

    Finally, other than Kevin Durant the Warriors are a franchise primarily built through the draft.  The Big Three from their first two Finals appearances and their first championship...Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green...were draft picks who eventually gelled together.  No one went out and bought 2-3 of the best players in the NBA so Steph Curry could win titles.

    Stuff like this is why some people tire of LeBron.

  • Durant is a sellout.
    Lebronze is a drama queen.

    Both can be true.
  • #32 by Hogimus Prime on 10 Jun 2018
  • I donít like either team.  Lebron is a drama queen.  IMO most of the Cavs problems start and end with Lebron.  I donít like Steph Curry or Durant.  Curryís body language sometimes, like the 2016 Finals when LBJ was abusing him is terrible. The slump shoulders reminds me of a pouting kid.  IMO take Green off the Warriors they donít make the finals.
  • #33 by HiggiePiggy on 11 Jun 2018
  • Cavs problems?  They arenít crap if Lebron is gone. He proved that already. How about getting a real coach for once.  It doesnít matter anymore because he will be gone and cavs will probably be a lottery pick next year. 
  • #34 by Sed76 on 12 Jun 2018
  • LeBron and his "broke hand" was just terrible. The guy bounced the ball off the backboard and slammed the hell out of the ball. If your hand is hurt, let alone broken you aren't doing stuff like that. Showing up in a cast just came across as him being a drama queen.

    Lebron might be a drama queen but without him the cavís are a cellar dweller. Hardly their ďproblemĒ.
