A 2-0 lead for the Warriors and more bad news for Cleveland as K. Love will sit out with a concussion. Where do the Cavs go from here?
I say they start Channing Fry. He isn’t quite K. Love from a rebounding stand point, but he does still stretch the floor. If they try to go a little smaller with Shumpert or Jefferson they could really suffer. If you look at the +- ratings when Cleveland goes small, it is not good at all.
The Warriors are sticking to their game plan and look to take an insurmountable 3 game advantage. I expect nothing but a superb effort from one of the splash brothers. I’m thinking either a 50+ point game from Steph or a 20+ point quarter for Klay.
This game should be close. Probably just a possession or two in the final minute. Expect one of the big names to make big shots and seal this game. Right now my bet is on Steph and I see the Warriors looking for the Sweep in game 4.
