On Thursday night, during the first game of the NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers didn’t seem to have an answer to defeating the Golden State Warriors.   Searching for answers, LeBron James and the Cavaliers suffered a 104-89 loss, and to add insult to injury,  factor in that the “Slash Brothers,” Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson had almost nothing to do with the loss.

NY Times – Game 1 of the N.B.A. finals was a tribute to the Warriors’ depth and sharing spirit. Led by Shaun Livingston’s 20 points, their bench annihilated the Cavaliers, outscoring Cleveland’s bench by 45-10 and leading a 21-4 run from late in the third quarter to the 8-minute-34-second mark of the fourth, turning a 1-point deficit into an 88-72 lead.

If LeBron James and the Cavaliers are looking for answers to defeating the Warriors then they should  not allow Golden State to set the pace of the game. The Warriors’ record of 168-34 over the last two seasons, including the playoffs, indicates that Cleveland will have very difficult time defeating the Warriors.  Game 1 proved that the Cavaliers’ bench may be no match for the Warriors who have a far deeper roster and Klay Thompson, Green and Iguodala  pose a defensive challenge to Irving, Love and James.  The Cavs will also need to come up with another defensive threat other than James.
