I also felt like the Cavs ran a variety of sets and player combos at GS last night, almost like the early rounds of a boxing match where the combatants trade jabs to see how the other person reacts. And it seemed like even when the Cavs found something that worked they didn't keep going back to it all the time.
Overall it was 1 game in which we didn't play well, played pretty good D overall but turned the ball over too much and didn't play our overall game on offense and still were in the game in the second half. I'd say that all was pretty encouraging. Remember GS is a pretty darn good team and they didn't just play the 76ers every game all season to get that many wins.
Agree with this for the most part.
Cavs had a good game plan and did a bunch of things well.
They did a great job on Clay and Curry.
They controlled the tempo.
They won the rebound battle.
Problem was they shot terrible and committed a bunch of turnovers. You can't do that against an elite team.
If those two stats were evened up Cavs probably win the game.
Credit to GS for the role players stepping up. Cavs were beat fair & square.
