Cavaliers want to ramp up physicality but won't 'dirty up' game


"KD", James said when asked what stood out about the Warriors in their runaway victory. "So we have to have the mind set of a must win (on Sunday), because (Thursday's) great game nearly means nothing if we lose on Sunday and don't take care of business". As I recounted in my You can never go home piece after his return to Cleveland, some thought that LeBron James' decision to return to Cleveland was just trading in an aging Big Three in Miami for a new and younger Big Three with the Cavaliers. So they're playing good basketball. "But one thing about us, it's all about us". You need to have a better attitude - if it were that easy, we would all do it. "He just continues to keep shooting and stay aggressive on both ends of the floor", Durant said on Saturday during his media availability. They're going to try to get their 3-point shooters going and rebound the ball.

Kerr has been out since Game 2 of the Warriors' first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers. "You expect it to be physical and having to play through it". "You have to bring a physicality to the game and we weren't as physical as we needed to be. We were off bodies, let them run free". This just may be the best NBA Finals ever played.

Or more accurately, perhaps, 80% wanted the Warriors to lose. Part of that is being physical, but a larger part is just making better decisions on defense, particularly in transition where the Cavaliers were bad. Fine", Green said. "We'll come in and play more physical. We could go on and on here, but you get the point.

For a couple of years, Thompson's been one of the NBA's best defenders. His willingness and ability to bother the Cavaliers stars are more significant than him exploding offensively. The Cavs, meanwhile, committed 20 turnovers, leading to 21 points for Golden State. They also said that was correctable.

"We made a lot of mistakes". "So we have today, and we're going to prepare tomorrow as well". We will play better. "Some of them was aggression". Those are like pick-sixes.

Donald Trump's withdrawal of USA from Paris climate agreement widely panned
The announcement follows Trump's decision to pull out of the climate deal that almost 200 nations agreed to in late 2015. The goal is to cap global temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.


"That's like throwing the ball to (NFL hall of famer) Deion Sanders".

The other end of the court has been more of a challenge this postseason for Thompson, who has posted two of the top seven 3-point seasons in National Basketball Association history the past two seasons and is a 42 percent shooter for his career from long range.

What also remains uncertain is how the Cavaliers will fix the multitude of problems that ailed them in Game 1.

Thompson added that even if he cannot secure rebounds in Game 2, he has to focus on at least getting in position to potentially tip the loose ball out to a teammate so he can get the rebound and retain the possession. "I have to be better". Even with LeBron James putting up good performances, the Cavaliers didn't show they can match the pace of Golden State's offense in Game 1.

Finally, he said, "Stop the Ball".

Rihanna, who is a LeBron James fan, was at the game rooting for the Cavaliers.

"You leave wanting more", he said.

"I think it's part of the reason people enjoy watching us play". He said on a conference call Friday that nothing has changed as far as he knows. "We will have to help out, and knock some shots down from the perimeter, especially me". "But we have to control the ball as well". We saw Curry crack under pressure in the Finals past year when pressure got tight. Against another team, the Cavs would be able to get by like that.

"I've seen a lot of great teams and they rank right up there".

The loser of Game 1 has gone on to win four of the last six championships, including last season, when the Cavaliers were beaten 104-89 in Oakland before rebounding to win the best-of-seven series in Game 7.
