Durant's playmaking has been immaculate.

And Korver gives full effort on defense, so I don't think its that.
And JR's offense is looking as inefficient as ever.
That Curry 3 though, once they start falling it's demoralizing to the opponent.

A valiant effort by the Cavs, but this one's over!

I rarely quote myself, but I posted this back on the 31st before Game 1 and still stand by it.

Golden State are using dribble penetration a lot more in Game 2, and that makes their perimeter twice as dangerous.

Yep, might as well take Lebron out at this point. Get him some rest.

He's finally getting some rest for game 3.

When Curry rains those 3's from anywhere and everywhere, GS is practically unbeatable.

Short take:

Cleveland is more competitive in the first two games this year than they were last year. 0-2 to this Warriors team is not ideal, and there are a lot of things that need to be cleaned up. The calls that didn't go their way on the road will go their way at home; the wide open looks will more often fall at home...I'm not one to bang on refs, you can't find a single post I've ever harped on refereeing, but there was some very Warrior-centric refereeing in these first two games. That isn't why the Cavs lost these two games, but I do think that trend will reverse itself in Cleveland...

Again, I'm a lot more confident than I was down 0-2 last year. This Cavs team looked better and I think there is at least a 50% chance that the series goes back to Oakland 2-2. I'll stand by that unless I'm proven wrong on Sunday lol...
