Kyrie is an over dribbler and presents a good example stylistically of what needs to die in the NBA.

KD is the best in world.

Its just staggering to know that the Cavs scored 49 points in the first quarter and yet the Warriors are still very much in this game.

Guy sitting on the bench gets a technical foul, and Lue literally hasn't said a word to anyone since. What does the guy actually do?

These refs really are the WOAT, no sense of consistency as far as physical play or behavior go

Durant walks over to say something to Jones, Jones says something back. Ref comes over, and Jones says to the ref "he came over to me," and the ref tees him up. WTF?

After his second shot, Cleveland will have 25 FTA. Golden State has 14. This is how Cleveland can beat GS - slowdown the pace and attack the basket.

80 points in the half and it's hard to say the Cavs are just going to cake walk to a win in the 2nd half. This is insane.

It really was just a matter of time before Cleveland started making some three pointers. That's been a big part of the difference in the first 3 games. They are 12/20 right now, which I believe is exactly what Golden State was at halftime in either game 2 or 3.

New NBA record for points in a half. 82 and counting.

This is the selfishness from Kyrie and Lebron I've been screaming for all series.

KD is an assassin. I'll say it again. This game will not be over so long as that guy is still on the floor.

James was on the court 20 minutes that half and Kyrle was on 21 minutes. Unless they can build on this lead, neither is going to get much rest in the second half.

22 points, 8 boards and 6 assists for Lebron. Irving has 28 points. Love has 17 points, and is on pace for 34, and it's like he's barely noticeable.

Oh, and 22 for KD.

Tristan Thompson with 6 huge boards, including 3 offensive boards that led to his 3 assists, which all came at huge moments. The Cavs need him playing well to beat Golden State.
