4 usual starters all with 39+ mins, including Klay with a bruised knee.
They look sluggish in the 4Q.  With Iggy playing, GS wins that game.
Instead relied on a lot of mins from Looney who didn't come through.
Livingston and NickYoung had poor games.
J Bell the only bench player who did well.
Maybe Kerr should have found minutes for JaVale and or West to get his guys some rest.


Btw, what ever happened to trapping the ballhandler on PnR's?
Everybody just passively accepts a switch at every screen.

Iggy's absence sure caused some poor shooting

Tired legs from having to exert themselves defensively.

Extra rest this series

Tired legs - thats a JOKE.

Just shot poorly

I said of HOU in Game 1 - as analysts fell all over themselves saying "what Rockets HAVE TO DO..." - it was all just MAKE SHOTS

Steph and Klay will tell you

Now......would Iggy have gotten a key board or two?  I have no doubt he would have, as we saw an array of second and third chances.

But to make a blanket statement of without a doubt WINNING the game if he was there - is a bit ridiculous.

Only 4 players on the 3 teams are still playing.

Celts might not have the biggest stars, but they play well as a team, and basketball is still a 5 against 5 game.

Iggy doubtful for G6.
McCaw activated, but who knows if he'll see Minute 1, or if he's any kind of answer.

Love out for G7.

I didn't see much of the 2nd half.
But early on, GS was attacking J Earl for profit.
Then switched to Love.

Scurry made as many 3 as the entire Cavs team (and did it on 10 fewer attempts).

57% FG from GS.
JaVale & Livingstone  10-10FG
Cavs can't get enough rebounds or FT's to overcome such shooting.
And Cavs not likely to win giving up 122.
Same when KD matches LBJ
1Q GS got tons of scoring inside, lots of dunks and layups when CLE defense lapsed.

CLE will need a better defensive effort at Home.
And need more than 1 point and 17 mins from Korver.  
While JEarl did little.
So 6 points from the SG position.

Geo Hill tried to up his energy level and was reasonably effective.
need him to stay aggressive.

Well, it all comes down to CLE defending homecourt the next 2 games.
GS dodged a bullet in G1.

Yep

Supreme quality for Warriors last night

Series only turns when a home team loses.  Attention to Cleveland.
