Game 1 of the NBA finals was Cleveland's worst game of the season. All the Cavs including Lebron, played unlike themselves.
Every bounce went the Warriors way. The GSW only had 4 turnovers as a team, while Lebron had 8 turnovers to himself.
In total the Cavs had 20 turnovers and had nearly 20 less shot attempts than GS.
Lebron, Kyrie, and Love all shot less than 50% while Curry and Durant shot 50% or better.
Klay and Draymond played incredible defensively.
I do not believe that Durant, Curry, Klay, and Draymond will all be on offensively, not against the Cavs.
I think 2 out of the 4 stars will continue to be hot while the other two do other things to impact the game.
The Cavs role players played pretty poor, Kyle Korver, Triston Thompson, and Deron Williams all had 0 points. While JR Smith had 3 points.
Korver and Williams will be better since they got their first NBA finals game over with.
Triston Thompson must get more than 4 rebounds and give the Cavs second chances on offense. He must play like he's capable of for the Cavs to have a chance, 8 points and 12 rebounds would be ideal for Cleveland.
I think the Cavs defense will be better as well as their role players. I also think Lebron will give us an incredible performance and take care of the ball.
Therefore I expect game 2 to be very competitive and entertaining.
I believe the Cavs will win in a very close game 2.
