You got that right, they tried to out GS GS by bombing away at the start of the 3rd when they should be trying to slow the game down and get to the line not letting the Warriors run on the misses. The lane was open if they wanted. There is no excuses for this one.

Barkley just said the Cavs have a chance because the GS bench is not as good as it used to be

Without CP3, the rockets lose a lot of basketball IQ on offense. A lot.

Teams are the same, but the players are not all the same, especially on the Cavs.

It will be interesting, if the Cavs match their one victory in last year's finals, this year, would that be considered a "moral victory"?

Also depending on what LeBron decides to do this summer, this may be his last NBA Finals ever (?), or for awhile. But regardless, he will always be the greatest 3-time NBA Champion ever......................until Steph gets his third in a couple weeks (j/k) !

Kevin Durant just had to join the GSW, get ready for the next 3 rings going to GSW as well. 4 all-stars on one team, 3 top NBA shooters in the entire league

This series will be lucky to go past game 5.

Both conference finals going game 7. Not surprised. Nba is rigged. Kind of sad, but I guess most sports probably are for money. I don't watch any other sports. But really, 27 missed threes in a row from the best 3 point team. Just seems fishy. And yesterday's Celtics game...definitely needed a game 7 I'm sure because the Cavs can't beat a wounded Celtics in under 7. The Cavs don't seem to be any better than they were any of the previous years. If Cavs win this just proves they're trying to pad lebrons stats and keep pushing that he's the best ever. For sure a 6 game series if not 7. Its all about the money. With no kyrie I don't know how they could stand a chance against warriors. The west should always be taking the title. But I know nothing so whatever.

Not really because CP3 plays the same as Harden. Comes down and dribbles out the shot clock and then is forced to take a bad shot

Rockets missed 27 consecutive threes from 2nd to 4th quarter. That is just ungodly. These are guys that could throw up that many with eyes closed facing away from basket and make 4 or 5 of them.



But then, they should have come out in the 2nd half taking it to the hole. If I was coached, I would have demanded they get at least 4 or 5 offensive fouls called.
