Overall Game Analysis
Cleveland did a good job inside. The Warriors were really not able to penetrate and had to rely on the outside shot - which they happen to be hitting tonight.

Cold offensively - especially inside. But he pulled down 21 rebounds. He was also solid from outside shooting 3-6 from 3 point arc.

Comments On Offense
Bad shooting night killed them. They needed to penetrate more and open up more shots. They got too predictable.

Thought the Defense was fine. They did enough here, just not enough firepower to contend.

Most much to game plan - get the ball to LeBron. If double teamed, go to Kyrie...
