Cleveland Cavaliers Find Themselves In A Must Win As Warriors Aim To Remain Perfect


The NBA Finals now finds itself in Cleveland, Ohio where the Cavaliers are aiming to snap the Warriors 14-game postseason winning streak and prevent them from going up 3-0.

Here are three things that the Cavaliers have to do to win tonight! Let us know your thoughts on Twitter at @NBALEAD

1. Kyrie Irving has to find a rhythm.

In this series, LeBron James has carried most of the load offensively by averaging 29 points, 13 rebounds, and 11 assists. Those numbers may look good, but he was a -22 in game 1 and -11 in game 2. This is where Kyrie Irving comes into play. For the series, Irving is averaging 21.5 points and 4.5 assists a game in Games 1 and 2. In order for the Cavaliers to win tonight, Irving has to play efficiently and take some of the load off LeBron

2. Get Klay Thompson and Draymond Green in early foul trouble

The last thing the Cavaliers need to worry about is Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. Here is why: If Thompson begins to heat up early, the Warriors get even more difficult to defend. With the acquisition of Kevin Durant, it is already hard enough to defend the Warriors. Thompson has the ability to get off in a hurry and more than likely, the Warriors will play through him to start the game. His defense has been stellar this series as he’s been mostly responsible for Irving’s struggles. By getting Thompson in foul trouble, Irving will have more room to create and get going.

Draymond Green is the soul and spirit of the team. There is no debating that, and this series, he has made his impact known. Tristian Thompson of the Cleveland Cavaliers has been flat out awful, and a reason for that is due to Green. Green is a defensive beast who has also proven to have key roles offensively. Thing is, the Cavs cannot stop the Warriors big 4 as a collective unit. Curry and Durant will be more difficult to defend, so that is why more than likely they will attack Thompson and Green defensively.

3. Don’t let Kevin Durant go off again…

In the first two games of these Finals, Durant has made his presence known that he wants to win the title. In game 1, Durant had 38 points on 54 percent shooting from the field. The Cavaliers have to find a way to slow him down because the Warriors are now beginning to feed off him. LeBron would clearly have this in mind tonight.


If the Cavaliers manage to complete most of these keys, they can take the game.
