Ahead of Thursday’s Game 1, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said “those days are over” when asked about using LeBron James to cover secondary scoring options.
While there aren’t many places to hide against the Warriors anyway, it sure sounds like James will see plenty of Kevin Durant in this series. The Cavs have been conserving LeBron’s energy all year long and he could be lethal if he’s got fresher legs than the Warriors expect. How Cleveland attempts to defend the Warriors is possibly the biggest storyline headed into these Finals and Golden State isn’t exactly dejected with the prospect of running James around their deadly screens. It should be a joy to watch these teams collide.
