Golden State Warriors 2016 NBA FinalsGolden State Warriors

Almost everything went wrong for the Golden State Warriors in Game 3. Their shots weren’t falling, they were outhustled in both sides of the court and the pair of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson had an off-night. Both guards combined for just 29 points on 10-of-26 shooting.  We can chalk this up to a trap game for the Warriors or did the momentum just shift in favor of the Cavaliers?

Golden State thrives off the 3-point play and in order to win Game 4 the splash brothers will need to find their shot.  The two combined to hit just four of 16 shots from beyond the arc in Game 3.  The Warriors will need to pick up their defensive intensity to match the Cavaliers.  It still doesn’t appear that Steph Curry is 100% which makes him a slight reliability on the defensive end.  Don’t expect the Warriors to be sluggish in Game 4 and this could be the best game of the series.

A pair of brilliant performances from LeBron James and Kyrie Irving allowed the Cleveland Cavaliers to finally notch their first win in the series. And now, they’re just another win away from tying things up at two wins apiece against the Golden State Warriors.

LeBron James cruised to a double-double with 32 points and 11 rebounds while Kyrie Irving pitched 30 points of his own to end a 7 game losing streak to the Warriors.  There was a big sigh of relief in the Cleveland locker room.  

One adjustment the Cavs made that proved to be very affective was letting Kyrie Erving play off the ball and let LeBron be the primary ball handler. The adjustment not only allowed Irving to get better shots than in past games but since he was scoring the defense had to pay extra attention to him, which opened up room for the screeners to get their shots off. 

Cleveland was able to capitalize on their home court and now they are tasked with repeating their Game 3 performance.
