When a team goes 12-34 from arc and only 7-12 on line, its hard for them to win; Golden State is 20-69 from arc last two games- Cavaliers are kicking their butts with physical play, a stronger will. Cleveland attacks hoop more with Irving gone; they are 45-64 on foul line in lst two games (13-19 in Game 1). Warriors played well once they started playing with sense of desperation; can they play that way for 48:00? Dellavedova is a spunky guy who defends well; he played 42:00/38:31 last two games, was in hospital for dehydration after– can he keep up his gritty play?
Golden State won eight of its last 12 games with Cleveland; nine of the 12 games were decided by 8+ points. Cavaliers are 14-3 so far in playoffs, Warriors are 13-5. Ten of last 13 Golden State games stayed under the total. Five of last six series games stayed under the total. Warriors won four of last six visits here, but Lebron was in Miami for the four wins. Golden State needs a faster-paced game to succeed in this series.
