OAKLAND — LeBron James had 14 of the Cavaliers 23 second quarter points, and he got them attacking the rim. And throwing down massive dunks, like the one above.
Or like this crossover and finish.
However, the Cavaliers still have not adjusted to the physicality of the series, nor the length and shot challenging of the Warriors in the paint — the Cavaliers were 11-of-30 in the paint in the first half. And that is holding back their offense, which is why they trailed 52-44 at the half (and needed a 7-0 run at the end of the quarter to get that close). Check out Cleveland’s first-half shot chart.
