This article presents good possible strategies that the Cavaliers can employ in tonight’s game, but I still don’t think it’s enough. Shaun Livingston looked pretty damn comfortable out there in game one in comparison to his performance in the OKC series. That’s a testament to what Cleveland lacks in defense when matched with a deep Warriors bench, not to mention Andre Iguodala’s contributions against LeBron (specifically!) and the Cavs. At this moment in the series, they are the X-factors for Golden State.
I think the strongest adjustment presented by Jonathan Tjarks is for Tyron Lue to utilize James like Draymond Green. It’s no revelation to say that Cleveland’s hopes rest upon his shoulders with the unlikely possibility they shoot threes at the same percentage they’ve been known to do for the rest of the series.
