Golden State Warriors Underline Superiority Over Cleveland Cavaliers

Golden State Warriors Underline Superiority Over Cleveland Cavaliers

A report from Dave McMenamin of ESPN, published on Tuesday evening, sheds new light on what is turning into a troubled season for the Cavaliers, whose loss to the Golden State Warriors on Monday night was the eighth in their last ten games.

Instead of coming out of the gates strong, they coasted through the majority of Monday's game, showing lackadaisical efforts on both offense and defense.

Irving wanted out of Cleveland so he could get out of LeBron James' shadow and make a mark on his own.

If James was to leave and join a team like the Houston Rockets, there's little doubt that a Big Three of James Harden, Chris Paul and James would be one to rival the Warriors' (main) triumvirate of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and Draymond Green. He said when players return to health (Derrick Rose and Iman Shumpert could be back as early as Thursday, though it is unclear what role either will have), and when Isaiah Thomas' minutes restriction goes away, the Cavs are "gonna be fine".

It's hard not to imagine how the Cavs' current season might be different if Irving was still wearing the Wine and Gold, and it seems that if LeBron James had gotten his way, he still would be. That tends to happen when you have the best player on the planet and know you can cakewalk your way to the NBA Finals once the playoffs roll around. "We played with more force in the second half". Isaiah Thomas, who missed the first 11 weeks before taking the court on January 2, will have shaken off the rust long before the playoffs. Regardless, his presence on the court provided the real-life visuals that have only been recreated in our minds (or, you know, video games) until now.

Basically, the same way you pay for things now will continue, except it'll all be called Google Pay. Those include Airbnb, Dice, Fandango , HungryHouse and Instacart.

Once that didn't work, and resident existential philosopher Kyrie Irving heard that his name was being mentioned in trade talks as well, the train went off the tracks. He is also shooting a career worse 23.3% from long distance.

It will take time to acclimate Thomas to the roster. It was less than a month ago that the Cavs arrived in Oakland to face the Warriors on Christmas Day having won 18 of their previous 19 games, and looking exactly like the presumptive Finals representative they were supposed to be.

Defensively, however, the issues will persist. Kevin Love scored 17, and added seven rebounds and three assists. Golden State are unique from that standpoint in that they have skilled players who can put the ball on the floor and attack after grabbing a rebound, while also making brilliant passes, but some of the communication breakdowns by Cleveland were simply inexcusable. "Last year was a tough year with the injuries and all the stuff going on". But, understandably, the team's hesitant to give up such an asset for a win-now move and risk being left with nothing come 2018-19. Offensively we're doing some good things, too. Kyle Korver was last year's mid-season addition. Not only do the Warriors look to be as unstoppable as ever with the league's best record, but the Cavaliers are playing their worst basketball since James returned in 2014.

Meanwhile, the only Cavaliers-bred prospect who sees is 22-year-old rookie Cedi Osman, a 2015 second-rounder who played one minute on Monday. "But as the season has unfolded, second-guessing has been developing".
