    The Cavs figured Thomas out early. He got 2 points today. 2!!!
    I think fatigue has something to do with it.
    Lebron with 30 points shooting 67% from the field, 7 assists, 4 blocks, 4 steals and +45 in under 3 quarters.
    Legend.

    IT out for the playoffs.
    Boston has 0.0% chance now.

    So it's looking like the Cavs and the Warriors are on a collision course, like pretty much everyone predicted.
    The Warriors are clear favourites imo, their team is just too good.
    My question to you guys is, what would the Cavs need to do in order to win?

    While I know that Cleveland have the LeBron factor, I don't think he can beat them by himself. He needs help from Love and especially Kyrie.
    The only way the Cavs win is if they break the Warriors spirit, like they did in Game 5 last year. They have to play tough and not give Durant and Curry an inch. But in all honesty those two aren't the ones I fear, it's actually Green and Iguadala, especially if they're on the court together. They will double on LeBron and that's when Kyrie, Love, JR and Tristan should step up.
    So basically the Cavs don't have any room for mistakes and everyone in their team needs to be at their best. Golden State can however afford to have one or two players playing below par and still put up a challenge.

    I think - and based on my argument the last two pages, you can tell where it's coming from - LeBron is going for the kill in these playoffs. He's rested a ton, he's angry, and he's chasing 'the ghost' ... The key to this series to me is can Green cope with LeBron playing at this level. If he can just slow him down little, the Warriors have an edge ... If LeBron owns him, the Cavs will win because if your best defender and vocal leader is getting eaten alive, your team will struggle.

    Is Iggy back ?

    I don't think anybody is stopping Lebron right now - he's got the confidence and basketball intelligence that experience brings but he hasn't lost anything physically.

    I don't know whether doubling Lebron is the best option - because you're leaving a team full of shooters with open threes if you do.
    Maybe just leave Iggy and Green to take turns guarding Lebron and give him the 2 points if he beats either of them.

    LOL... what a weird ending. Celts steal one away. Smart unconscious and Jerebko gave them much needed energy to spur their comeback.

    Have I mentioned before that Al Horford is soft as fuck? Couple of big baskets down the stretch but he has to bang harder against Love or Thompson and snag a few more rebounds. He's been totally useless this series around the rim. I get that Thompson is a good rebounder, but Horford seems totally allergic to any contact.

    edit: Just seen the last play again. The ball spent 1.9 seconds from hitting the rim to finally dropping. If that had been a clean swish, Cavs would've had about 1 second left on the clock for a Hail Mary play. The crazy bounce basically ran the clock out for the Celts. Luckeeeeeee! :D

    LeBron disappeared in this game ... odd one ... he'll have a point to prove game 4.

    Did I say game 2? I meant next to the next game, obviously.

    You really think the Celts adjusted? Looks more like the Cavs took the foot of the gas, and thought it was over and teh Celts just got really really hot ... I'd be amazed if they win one more game ... the Cavs are embarrassed, and will go after them big time.

    Isn't that the way normally with the NBA? How often do we see the 1-2 seed get to the finals? The last two years, we basically expected Cleveland vs Golden State. You rarely get upsets
