Who is a worse defender, DeMarre Carroll or James Harden?

Probably Carroll, because it appears that he is trying and this is the best he can do.

And last year he had a rep for defense.

Well well...some unexpected developments.

I think Cleveland gets back to form and takes this quickly.

I think GS gets the next game and then gets beat in OKC.

As usual, OKC looks lost in the last 4 minutes trying to close out a game. Couple of iso plays late in the shot clock and a Durant turnover. Ugh.

They at least got it to 7, which I didn't think would happen going in. I expect a drubbing on Monday night.

Steph Curry is the MVP who isn't the best player on his team.

Have to admit Barkley nailed this series.

Durant is doing all the things Westbrook used to be criticized for.

OKC just can't seem to take the next step and blow a 3-1 series lead.

Cavs v Warriors again...yawn.

I'm spending Memorial Day in the Cleveland area, and the fans here are teetering on delusional. A few people have actually tried to argue that the Raptors are a better team than OKC. Way too many people think this is Cleveland's series to lose.

The Cavs better figure out how to defend the pick & roll, and fast. Detroit gave the Cavs fits using a similar offense to the Warriors, and they aren't anywhere near as talented.

Cleveland has been relying on the 3-pointer from Love, Smith, and Frye in these playoffs - all three (plus Irving) are sub-par defensively. They'll need to keep up their torrid shooting pace to have a chance in the final. Golden State may average 120/game.

I actually think OKC has all the pieces (if they keep Durant), they just need more time playing together.

How much do you really want to fuck with a team that is likely to win 62 games or more next year?

KD hopefully sticks around another year or two, won't hurt him in terms of the next mega contract. Still pisses me off how this team plays down the stretch. If OKC is up 8 with 3 minutes left their goal should still be to win by 20. Until they understand that these collapses will continue. They ain't built to nurse leads to the finish line......

Go Cavs, I'm getting sick of Curry already. If he can't stop playing with his fucking mouthpiece he should get a binky. Little more sanitary. I think Lebron wants that GOAT title and beating this GS team goes a long way to getting there.

JR Smith is actually playing good defense right now, which will have to continue for them to win.

I wouldn't tweak OKC, they just need to gel. The Warriors now aren't that different personnel wise from the team that Mark Jackson coached.

Sorry, Cleveland doesn't have a chance. Especially when they lose double digits on a Splash Brothers off night.

JR Smith's ideal teammate is Marvin Barnes not Lebron James.

I'm going against the flow and pick Cleveland in the next one. They have no chance in the series.

Fuck it, go Pens!

The Warriors may actually just donate a game in Cleveland to win it at home in front of their fans and give their owner another rake at the gate. They know it's impossible for Cleveland to beat them.....

FWIW, Jordan or Kobe would have NEVER accepted that beating last night, especially in the finals.

As usual, Kyrie, Love and JR Smith are nowhere to be found in big games.

Ugh.

Gotta feeling Love is going to back in the Warmth of the Sun and California Girls and racing Little Deuce Coupes with his uncle Mike in Laker Land next year.

Can't fault the Cleveland front office for trying to assemble a championship, but they have got to be sick over giving up Wiggins......

They can have him.

His horrible defense wasn't as evident with a bad team. The guy is embarrassingly bad, and can't shoot in important games. May have been better to keep Wiggins after all.

Well, at least my Cavs showed up tonight.

Much better energy without Kevin Love and less Delly.

Delly played well last year, I wouldn't give up on him.

Love is a different matter...I think he ought to come off the bench in spots.

Kerr will be ramping up Iggy over Bogut soon just like last year.

Thursday, the Mistake gets its hopes up, by the weekend they will be crushed.

But the Lake Erie Monsters won the AHL Calder Cup, so there's that consolation prize.

I'm hopeful my Cavs force a game 7, but Green will probably go off.

Hopefully they can anger him enough to punch someone else in the balls so he gets suspended again.

Completely disagree with this. Delly had a couple good games against the Bulls and Hawks last year, but he was garbage in last year's finals. Since then, he has looked like a borderline NBA player. I honestly don't understand why Cavs fans cling to that guy.

Agree.

Dude is awful and I doubt he'd be picked up by many NBA teams, if any. D league maybe.

No matter what happens on Sunday, LeBron is MVP of this series. Ridiculous performance. And how cool at the end with Craig Sager.
