Prior to Game 2 we wondered whether the Game 1 outcome would give the Cavs confidence or leave them in disrepair. It seemed it was the latter, however there is a glimmer of hope tonight at Quicken Loans…

…and that glimmer of hope is basically just Lebron, who is 5 of 11 from three-point range in the Series while the rest of the Cavs are a combined 14 of 53 – a woeful 26%.

The Warriors are averaging 123 ppg two games into the Series and have averaged 118 ppg in their last 4 trips to Quicken Loans. They are also showing how much more of a team they are than the Cavs, averaging less than 10 TO, being +27 from beyond the arc and +16 in assists

Cleveland had their chance in Game 1 and blew it in amazing fashion. Game 2 was a better indicator of the matchup, with the Warriors consistently able to break down the Cleveland defence and any attempts to double team.

Take Warriors at the line with confidence.
