The game hurt because the Cavs played probably well enough to beat literally EVERY team in the NBA Finals and fell short. Were there mistakes? Of course. You can’t go below the three point line in transition against this team and LeBron made a mistake. However, what more can you really ask of LeBron? The dude had 39-11-9 and was super efficient. Kyrie attacked the rim at will and had an efficient game as well. He couldn’t make a tough jump shot to break them. Korver in the corner, I’ll take that any day, the dude shot 50%+ from there and the Cavs were up 2 at that point…. 5 pt game kills it. Last year the Cavs witnessed dueling 41 point games by Kyrie and Lebron and won BIG. This year they scored 39 and 38 and lost. It just hurts how this team won’t be remembered by anyone for how good they were but how badly they were beaten by the Warriors. Regarding the LeBron GOAT talk, I think Jordan is the best still but it’s slanderous to bring Kobe (a “scorer” who was outscored by 20 ppg, 10 ppg, and 10 ppg in his first three rings… Read more »

Yep. Korver had the shot. Durant went ISO and won the game for them. Last year they didn’t have that. LeBron has been phenomenal all season. Love that guy.

My four points: 1. Our transition defense is unable to stop their transition offense. I don’t know if that’s because our D is terrible or their O is amazing, or both, but there were numerous times when we missed a shot and the Warriors quickly ran out for a layup/dunk or an open 3 from Curry/Durant/Klay. Then we see all our guys looking around at each other, usually LeBron and Kevin and Kyrie who don’t get back on D. 2. Three is better than two. Our bread and butter is LeBron and Kyrie driving to the basket off either pick-and-roll or iso. They’re two of the best ever at taking guys to the hole and finishing off the dribble. Unfortunately, this is not going to win against this Warriors team because in 2017 you don’t get calls (unless you’re Curry or you have JR Smith near you). You’re more likely to get a foul called for you on the perimeter shooting a 3 than by getting hammered in the lane. LeBron absorbs more contact than anyone I’ve ever seen (Shaq?) and he’s the best player in the league and he still gets so few calls. On the other hand, the… Read more »

love the golf clap, exactly how I feel. Congrats on stacking the deck so far in your favor that you can play that free and loose and not have a care in the world. That’s not what makes a champion. Its an empty championship. I hope the rivalry continues and Cavs come back with a fire in their belly.

Loved the game, was amazing to watch. I hope they bring same intensity on Friday to give us another fun game.

It’s going to take a little time to digest to completely understand just what the Warriors have done. Short answer no doubt is KD. Without him, I really believe Cavs win. However Warriors did more than that. They have obliterated Tristan completely and it def has caused Cavs to be out of sorts. One of Cavs strengths, staples is the 3 point shooting. They are not doing that. We’re not seeing the swinging back and forth to Korver, a 3, Frye, a 3, Kyrie a 3. ect. You have to think Warriors have done that somehow too rather it’s a mental or physical thing. Warriors want to be physical and are completely comfortable in fouling, thus forcing us to drive in the paint more. Kyrie and Lebron did get points there. I can’t help thinking about that one bench player who seems to thrive driving to the basket and has success drawing fouls. This is his specialty. Why Lue won’t give him a shot doesn’t make sense . Kerr would have no problem using Derrik Williams .

I wouldn’t be surprised Warriors pick him up just for spite. They love to pick off a former CAvs player or past staff, or coach.
