They seemed undaunted by their penchant to lose fourth-quarter leads. Even James’ 58 percent...

Tyronn Lue says he considers Cavaliers-Warriors to be a rivalry

Despite LeBron’s protests, Tyronn Lue says that Cavs-Warriors is indeed a rivalry. LeBron James may not want to say that Cavaliers-Warriors is a rivalry, but Tyronn Lue had no hesitation during an appearance on ESPN’s Mike & Mike. “I think any time a team plays back-to-back years in the NBA Finals, and a lot of fans around the country are looking to that third match-up, especially with those guys acquiring Kevin Durant, I think it’s a rivalry,” Lue said. “I think these two teams, they want to get there, they want to play each other, and it’s some dislike there. They want to...

LeBron James was too much for the Pacers to overcome in Round 1

The Cavaliers have LeBron. The Pacers don’t. Sometimes, it’s that simple. The Cavaliers have LeBron James. The Indiana Pacers didn’t.

Miles for a chance to steal Game 1, blew an big lead in Game 2, fell behind by 25 points at half in Game 3, and a calamitous turnover from J.R. Smith nearly sent Game 4 to overtime. This wasn’t your typical sweep, and the numbers back that up. Cavaliers outscored the Pacers by just 16 points in the...
