Despite Lebron’s epic series, he has no help. He can’t guard all five opposing players, and he can’t score all the points. He had assisted on or scored on 15 of the Cavs 16 first half buckets, and he would manage close to the same in the 2nd half. The end result was that Golden State needed just 1 game in 2 games to win their first title in 40 years.
Steph Curry found his shooting range with 37 points, and when a player whose nickname is Iggy, Andre Iguodala, has a series like he is, it just shows that the Cavs don’t have enough pieces.
Iguodala looks like a superstar, and although he is playing good, he is also being guarded by the before mentioned, nobodies.
The big man besides Lebron was Tristan Thompson, who had 19 points and 10 boards. Not enough for Cleveland.
LeBron James finished with 40 points, 14 boards and 11 dimes in the loss.
Lebron assisted on Iman Shumpert’s 3-pointer from the corner. James had made a 3-pointer on the Cavaliers’ previous basket as they quickly wiped out a six-point deficit. The game was all tied up 75 when the Warriors found their Splash Brother’s nickname, and the Cavs went cold.
Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love are not dressing or traveling with the team, and that seems to be the difference.
Timofey Mozgov, who at times looked like, “Marc Gasol on training wheels.” has seemed to not been playing late in the games of this series, and give credit to Kerr and his small ball approach. Are the Cavs just undermanned and tired? Here is Mozgov post game:
Tired or not, the Cavs need scoring and there is only 1 player who can score by creating his own shot besides Lebron, and that is JR Smith. Smith has been the missing piece for Cleveland, but if he is ever going to have a career saving game, it is Game 6.
Game 6 is Tuesday in Cleveland. The MVP who plays in a finals and is up 3-2, has a 100% record of at least winning the series. This year’s MVP is Steph Curry, and with 2 games to win 1, and 1 of those game a would be home game 7, Curry has to feel right in position to keep that record intact.
Lebron will have to find a level of brilliance in 2 more games, and he will have to finally get some help.
