    A little late, but I was talking about this on another forum. The Cavs might need to go big, rather than play small ball.


    The starting lineup matchups are fine for the Cavs. Steph is a better shooter, Kyrie is a better finisher inside, neither is the greatest on defense. Klay is *usually* slightly better to a whole lot better than Smith, just depends on which Smith shows up. Harrison Barnes is no match for LeBron, on either side of the ball. Love is better on offense, Green is better on defense, take your pick. Thompson is a better rebounder than Bogut, and neither one is the best rim protector.

    My point in saying all that is that the Cavs will be fine hanging with the Warriors with their starters. It's when reserves enter that changes need to be made. Instead of running Delly at the point, run Shumpert. That takes away the size mismatch Livingston has. Delly on Barbosa is a lot better matchup for him. LeBron on Barnes/Iggy, Love and Frye on whichever of Ezeli/Speights/Varejao they have in. Then, there won't be those obvious mismatches to exploit.

    This series is still very winnable by the Cavs, and I like that just about everyone is saying it's over. Everyone said it was over after Game 1 last year, and they responded by winning 2 straight.

    Humm, this years series record so far, Warriors 3 wins, Cavaliers 0 wins....I personally think the Cavaliers will win two games, but in the end Warriors will be victorious for their second Championship in as many years.

    Go WARRIORS

    I agree that the Cavs can win this series, but they're going to have to win on the road.

    I'm not saying the series is over by any stretch of the imagination. But like you mentioned the Cavs have big time match up problems off the bench. If they play faster like Lue wants them to tonight it could get ugly fast in my opinion. I don't believe they can run with the Warriors. For the Cavs to win they've got to steal one on the road and that's not going to be easy.

    Looks like Tyronn Lue (Cavs head coach) listened to me... they've got Delly on Barbosa, and Richard Jefferson on Livingston. Taking away the mismatches. I'm liking it, 21-19 Cleveland after one.

    Also, refs have called some bogus calls, like the one on the LeBron drive. And the missed call on the Draymond Green elbow to the face of JR Smith, and the Richard Jefferson drive...I'll stop here, ha.

    The Cavs looked horrible tonight. I still have hope they'll at least tie the series when they go to Cleveland

    History is not on your side. Here's what The Warriors have done to the Cavs in their last seven games going back to the playoffs last season:

    Maybe is right. If they show up like they have the first two games we could be looking at a sweep.

    Sure, they responded by winning two straight but they still lost in the end. I think the Warriors have this series. Offensively there isn't much the Cavs have to offer. Typically only two players on the Cavs hit double digit scoring. They need more offensively than Lebron and Kyrie to make a solid effort against the Warriors. Golden State can run a game offensively with a variety of players. Their bench alone can go for 48 on any given night. That is going to be a problem. Their ball movement can tire out any defense. They are a strong team that I don't see the Cavs defeating in this series.
