From LeBron James (after the game)
- 15 turnovers on a road game is not a good ingredient to win the game
- We had a game plan and we followed as much as possible and will continue the same in Game 2
- 28 missing shots! We have to do better than that!
- We are going to have a better offensive plan for Game 2
- Game ball goes to Livingston!
From Tyronn Lue (after the game)
- 28 shots in the paint and we didn't finish around the basket so we got to keep playing
- I thought we were fine I feel good about how we played it all down
- You don't get into the basket and you don't miss 28 shots in the paint.
- It is going to be better next game
- We did a good job on locking Steph and Klay. We will go back to the drawing board and try to repeat the same.
- Warriors bench scored 45 points. We need to have a better plan!
- More trips to paint and finishing
- Kyrie sharing the ball
- Love and J R Smith getting the ball
- Plan for bench players
- More aggresive play but not turning over the ball
- Keep scoring. Just keep scoring
- Same or better plan for lockdown Steph and Klay, again in Game 2
Go Cavs as always!
Warriors made a quick and surprise last quarter run, ended in 15-0 to
close out the game. Warriors bench took control of the game and won the game 1 for
NBA Finals - 2016
Warriors 1 – Cavaliers 0
15 turnovers and 28 missed shots proved to be very costly
for the Cavaliers. Cavs were up by 3 in the 4th but not sure what
happened after that. Delly and Iggy had some moments and everything changed
after that. Warriors took advantage of the situation and surprised Cavs!
James (after the game)
" We have a game plan and we followed
as much as possible so it is great! we got to do a better job!"
Curry and Thompson had a bad night. For Cavs, J R Smith had
a bad night.
For those who like to see number, Plot 1 and 2 are for Cavaliers and Plot 2 and 3 for Golden State Warriors. Interestingly, Cavs had 3 players above 20 Net Player Score percentages compared to Warriors. Warriors had just 2 players in this range.
Cavs need to reset their mindset so do Warriors! Game # 2 will be really interesting.
