Re: NBA/WNBA Thread

Needed Irving to step up---that's for sure.

James? He's fortunate to have a better supporting cast than Cleveland did in the past. I think in game three especially he was bored complacent and perhaps tired. I didn't catch all of game four so I can't say. But from what I saw the Cavs as an entire team played with more heart and grit.

Better supporting cast? The Cavs are Nolan Ryan setting down the side in order. Three Ks. Keven, Kyrie, and The King. Love and Irving have gotten better every year, no denying that, but I think the quality in the rest of the team has declined. Shumpert has become a minute-eater off the bench, JR Smith, in the half season he played, averaged single digit scoring for the first time since his rookie season. Most notable is Matthew Dellavadova, the guy who probably should have gotten at least three Flagrant 2 calls in last years Eastern Conference Finals and League Finals, is NOT a member of the team and there is nobody who IS with his sheer grit. Like him or hate him, he was a momentum changer.

Re: NBA/WNBA Thread

Sorry. I meant before James went to Miami. I should have been more specific.

Yes, last year they had a better record per se. But they're still likely to be in the finals again this season. And frankly, that's what matters to the Cavs, and to James more specifically.

Re: NBA/WNBA Thread

I also think the "big three" have another season under their belts. That makes them that much better. Now, Kevin Love understands what's required of him, same with Kyrie.

I personally think this is a "better" Team this season.

TBC, with the Cavs making it to the Finals, who do you like?

Re: NBA/WNBA Thread

I think the Cavs are wearing thin.

I'll take Golden State in 6.

I think it'll be 7 again with the winner a toss up.

Re: NBA/WNBA Thread

Cleveland is blowing out a road win tonight.

But.

That's not the whole story. They are going to need EVERY night of rest; they look gassed. They're beating Boston with experience tonight, not physical talent. With everybody fresh, they have more talent, don't get me wrong here.

They've only lost ONE game this post-season and they are TIRED.

The Dubs are undefeated this postseason and are ready for The Finals.

I could see Golden State in 5, but the Cavs got guts to spare, I still say they take it to six. If it goes seven, GSW wins that one easily.
