2016-17 Cleveland Cavaliers player reviews: Richard Jefferson

Jefferson played his role again for the Cavs and showed up when the light’s were brightest. It seemed like the ideal way to go out.

Tyronn Lue elected to start switching all Golden State screens and Jefferson’s 6’7” frame and athleticism allowed him to guard all five positions on the floor. His ability to defend both guards and forwards...

Cavs player says if team doesn't win title 'season was unsuccessful'

Cavs player says if team doesn't win title 'season was unsuccessful'

Cleveland Cavaliers veteran Richard Jefferson spoke to media before Game 4 of the 2017 NBA Finals and said the season may be a failure. While the Cavs are Eastern Conference champions, Jefferson said it doesn’t matter unless they win the title (via NBA.com): I still do not feel like we’ve reached our potential. We’ve said it all along. It doesn’t matter if we lose in Game 7 or what happens with tonight. If we don’t win the championship, then our season is unsuccessful. That’s it. It’s the same for them. Jefferson said the same sentiment applies to “three or four” teams in...

NBA Finals 2017: Why the Warriors’ Game 1 shooting percentages shouldn’t be a concern

NBA Finals 2017: Why the Warriors’ Game 1 shooting percentages shouldn’t be a concern

There was some light chatter on Twitter yesterday about Richard Jefferson observing that the Golden State Warriors only shot 42% in their 113-91 win in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. To summarize, Jefferson’s argument is this: if the Cavs were able to hold the Warriors to 42% shooting, they don’t really need to make many adjustments because they’re not really that “far off”. A confident Richard Jefferson says Cavaliers...

Richard Jefferson on Game 2: “We have to answer.”

Jefferson compared the Finals to a boxing match. Ahead of what is a pivotal Game 2 on Sunday, Cavs forward Richard Jefferson says the Cavs can play better than they did in Game 1 and that it’s up to the Cavs to answer. “We feel like there are things that we can do better," Jefferson said per cleveland.com. "Again, this is going to be a boxing match. It's going to be punch, counter-punch. They played well. They did a really good job of putting us in a position to turn the ball over. We have to answer." Jefferson is spot on in saying that the Cavs can play better in Game 2. Cleveland...
