Game 2 impressions – Are the Rockets dumb on defense?

-Whatever cold medicine Andrew Bogut took in game 2, I want some. -The Rockets do not have a high defensive IQ. It took them several trips for them to figure out the back picks that led to uncontested lay-ups in game one. Then they rotated poorly on Steph Curry in the first quarter that left him open for three, 3-point makes. The Warriors simply don’t make those mistakes. -The Warriors look like they are sagging off of James Harden too much. Draymond Green did that to start the second quarter and Harden hit an uncontested 15-footer. However, Harden is probably the best duel-threat offensive...

Cavs 94, Hawks 82; Jason Lloyd's 20 thoughts on defense, unsung heroes and a commanding lead

  ATLANTA: Twenty thoughts for the Cavs' biggest lead of the night in what was an awfully impressive 94-82 win over the Atlanta Hawks to give them a commanding 2-0 series lead in the conference finals… 1. There was a quiet belief within the Cavs after the way Game 1 unfolded they could win this series without Kyrie Irving, but they couldn’t sweep it. That may have been incorrect. Following this game, and the way the Cavs killed the Hawks’ spirit in the second half, a series victory is now inevitable and a sweep certainly seems possible. 2. The Cavs limited the Hawks to 33 points...
