Kyrie Irving is absolutely playing the best he has ever played right now. The reason Klay Thompson is struggling is that he is playing maximum effort defense on Irving - the type of defense that slows most other guys down in the NBA because Klay is a great on-ball defender - and yet Irving cannot be stopped. The Warriors only hope is that LeBron and Irving get gassed toward the end of the game. But this is a deep hole even for the Warriors to dig out of tonight,
To give people an idea of just how flawed a stat +/- is, Kyrie is only +3 in this game, while Lebron is +28. I don't even know how that's possible when it feels like they have been on the floor together all night.

This one's over. See everyone on Monday night.
I just don't see it. I still feel like Golden State is going to rip the hearts out of Cleveland in the last four minutes and win this thing. Cleveland has had like 3-4 wide open looks in the last minute to push this over 20, and missed them all.

I don't know why people are surprised that the Cavs are shooting like this. It felt like they shot like this in every first half against the Celtics, and then the games were over, and they came down to Earth a bit. If they could have shot even half this good in the first 3 games, this would be a completely different series.
