Wow, this is starting to look like the Mavs - Heat finals. Curry's not just missing shots, he's taking bad shots and letting Cleveland bother him, I don't like his decisions or his passing, and it's unsettling the entire team, behind the back pass with 2 mins left, hits a 3, then another turnover? Not MVP level play, especially when you consider 2 of the Cavs 3 best players are injured.

Going to also call Bogut out for some pretty sub-par play. Tristin Thompson has basically negated Draymond Green.

halfway through last night's game -- before the big 3Q push -- i turned to ms. foodguy and said "i can't believe it but I'm actually starting to root for cleveland."
that was a moment of hysteria, but hats off to that team for overcoming amazing bad luck and playing good, solid, tough defensive team basketball. and jesus lebron is a beast. he doesn't have that high wire quality that kobe or mj had, but he can basically do everything better than anybody.

Do not forget Draymond Green and Harrison Barnes.  Both were atrocious in game 3.  Everyone keeps talking about Curry missing shots but LeBron is consistently missing bunnies.  Think about the numbers he'd be putting up if he converted on just 3-5 more buckets each game.

Their bench in general feels like it's regressed a bit since Game 1. Iggy is their best (most consistent) player rn

Yeah, I forgot. Wasn't Barnes like 0-9 or something?

Think HB was 0-8 and Draymond 2-10.  Both were huge the first three series of playoffs but have disappeared in finals.

Live by the 3, die by the 3. Yeee

it seems cavs plan is to leave Barnes Iggy and Dray wide open. There were a few times last night when dray straight up passed on a wide open three to try and go for a drive. Basically turning the Tony Allen strategy back on the Warriors.

Lebron is awesome - can't give him too much credit. As for Cleveland's injuries, I would love to see Kevin Love out there instead of Tristan Thompson. Tristan is absolutely demolishing us on the offensive glass and is one of the few 4's in the league with the size and strength to take advantage of Dray's size. That was true even when Draymond was at 100% but he's injured now. Similarly Mozgov is one of the few 5's active and athletic enough to consistently beat Bogut.

The Warriors only chance in the series is to tire Cleveland's starting 5 out earlier in the game and withstand the onslaught. The playoffs generally and the finals in particular are very different from a cadence standpoint and negate some of the W's huge advantages in roster depth and help Cleveland which has a short bench right now. How much worse off would Cleveland be if they didn't have this much time off in between games? They get Lebron for 45+ minutes a night. None of this is to take away from what Cleveland is doing, but to say that the Warriors advantage isn't as sizable as it first appeared.

Also wouldn't hurt if the Warriors could start hitting open 3's again.
