You are correct, which is why the Cavs only real shot is simply making as many if not more 3's than the GSW. Then GSW has to go cold...
They have to continue to hit 3's w/the volume and efficiency that they've been doing throughout the playoffs which is unlikely, especially without homecourt.
I just don't see it for the Cavs (or any team really)
All of the best teams in the league (cavs included) as currently constructed have major flaws that ultimately stop them from having a real shot at beating GSW.
GSW in 5, maybe 6.
All very valid points.
Another thing we HAVE to consider is the glaring issue on the defensive end for Kevin Love and Channing Frye. I don't care how much of an offensive boost he gives the Cavs, if the Warriors continuously put him in screen rolls situations all game long, it's going to collapse whatever Clev tries to do.
Draymond Green is going to kill it this series. Hell, that stupid weak side post Love goes into plays right into the hands of Green. Dray is going to force that fool into the help defense or make him take those awful fade aways on the baseline. Kevin Love will probably get his from the corner 3-ball, but that's pretty much it. Unless he suddenly man's up overnight and plays out of his mind for a series without home court advantage.
Under what merits? Who has he had to really guard when he's been on the court this post season?
Channing Frye was NEVER a good individual defender and NEVER will be. He doesn't have the lateral quickness or nose for the ball that's needed.
