2. Hope the Warriors are un-Warrior like
For as great as the Warriors are, Golden State’s kind of been in a lull offensively by Golden State standards.
Draymond Green made 12 percent of his shots from beyond the arc in the Western Finals. He’s making just 28 percent of his attempts during the playoffs.
These numbers offer the Cavs a glimmer of hope. It’s a sliver, but if you’re wearing Wine & Gold colored glasses, you’d rather see these numbers than everyone on the roster shooting 50 percent from downtown.
The Warriors don’t have great depth and with Andrew Iguodala injured, Steve Kerr is even more reliant on his superstars.
If the Warriors are in a funk and the Cavs make their shots and play sound defensively, who knows? Perhaps LeBron James and company steal one of the first two at Oracle, changing the makeup of the series.
