"So I felt like the odds was against us from the summer". I'm glad. I wanted to see them another time. Cleveland has been the LeBron show more than ever, so much so that "The Other Cavaliers" earned a skit on "Saturday Night Live" earlier in the postseason.

Third quarter, 9:02, 66-59 Warriors: JaVale McGee surprisingly started the second half and Golden State began the quarter on a 10-3 run, including four points from McGee. Even further, when James had at least one teammate score 20 or more points the Cavs were 5-1.
