It’s now or never for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Yes, we all know it takes four losses to be eliminated and Wednesday is only Game 3, but we also know that no team has ever come back from 0-3 in a playoff series in NBA history.
So we repeat, this time with emphasis: It’s. Now. Or. Never.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors are the kings of adjustments when it comes to third quarters, but they showed they can adjust on a larger scale in Game 2.
Cleveland spent all of Game 1 rushing ball-handlers in pick-and-role situations, but in the second contest of the Finals, the Dubs make quicker passes and let their bigs slip defenders.
Golden State enters this contest as four-point favorites, but in order to win both straight up and against the spread, they’ll need to be prepared for a much-improved Cavs squad.
No, Cleveland didn’t do anything to improve over night, but they have proven to be much better shooters within the comfy confines of The Q.
The Warriors need to prioritize defense on the shooters more than they have this series, which seems very doable with Andre Iguodala likely to make his Finals debut.
The Cavs desperately need two things in Game 3. For starters, they need Kevin Love to shoot better. He had a solid game overall in Game 2, but his three-point shooting was atrocious, resulting in Golden State doubling down on its efforts to defend LeBron James.
The other thing this team needs is somebody—anybody—to step up as a consistent third scorer.
In Game 2, JR Smith swung and missed on too many three-pointers in his attempt to make up for his Game 1 gaffe. Jordan Clarkson’s shooting numbers remain terrible. Do George Hill or Rodney Hood even play for this team? Can LeBron draw enough attention to get Kyle Korver involved?
The Cavs do shoot better at home, so it makes sense to believe they’ll put together their most complete game of the Finals so far. The question, of course, is whether or not their most complete game is good enough to beat the league’s most complete team.
