Total rebrand. New uniforms and a new logo.

Then play Blake Griffin at small forward.

Then find guys who can dunk.

And finally. Take more 3s than them.

I knew none of you knew how to beat a three point shooting team.

Look at the Spurs. They don't shoots threes now and they're the best team in the NBA. Also you can leave a player on offense basket hanging and score off every single three point miss very easily.

Slow the game, disrupt flow, limit turnovers, contest all 3s, fight over screens, try not to foul, minimize help d, switch outside, collapse inside and give up midrange.

You're so right. Spurs never shoot 3's.

Howcome you don't like my suggestions? All I did was copy and paste what you said in other threads. I just want to be like you :(

Cleveland and LeBron didn't do too bad in last years Finals. Seeing they won two games, and could/should have won two other games in the series. With the help that he has now, I think they can pull it off.


Cleveland have Kevin Love feeling better about his role. So, the Cavs are very dangerous.


You can slow the game down. Have your bigs out there, and punish the Warriors down low. Cleveland can go big, San Antonio can go and will go big against the Warriors. It's easier said than done.


You can hard foul Curry. They did Shaq and Jordan like that! They do LeBron like that...why not Curry? He's an elite player right? So, why no one hardly even touch this guy? I'd get Dellavedova on him and say: "Knock him on his azz".


MAKE S. CURRY PLAY D! Most important Cavs player is Kyrie Irving. Why? Because, he will put pressure on and make S. Curry play defense. Kyrie can wear S. Curry out, which means he won't be running around like last year. He'll have depend on his team mates more. Kyrie can also but, S. Curry in foul trouble.



You must have players that can switch on the pick-and-roll and defend away from the basket. Dwhite Howard, Mozgov, types won't cut it.


Fight fire with fire. Hopefully, JR Smith, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, R. Jefferson(very good 3pt shooter), Shumpert, James Jones, 3 point shot is working come June. We all know LeBron is not a 3pt specialist, but, he always make big shots. Heck! Even M. Dellavedova has gotten better shooting 3's. So, I like Cleveland chances against the Warriors, if they should meet again.


Double team Curry. Get the ball out of his hands as much as possible.



Hack-a-Bogut He's 44% from the line this year.
Hach-a-Ezeli He's 53% from the line this year.
If Draymond Green is down low wack him! NO EASY BASKETS FOR YOU! Make him earn it from the line. He's 69% from the line this year.

I'm wondering if playing Curry wildly and hard (Delly-style) and not doubling is the best way to approach it. If Curry scores 40 then so be it. Doubling him just results in the pass to Green and 4 on 3. GS has mastered this situation and tends to get an easy bucket or wide open 3.

You can't attack Curry with Irving because he won't be guarding him.

Ever since the Cavs ran the Dubs off their own floor in the regular season last year, they've been putting Klay on Irving and hiding Curry on JR or Shump. I'd start running JR off screens, keep Curry moving.

Goal: attack Curry in every way possible when he's defending. Stick an annoying defender (delly/shump) on him and make only him beat you.

The Cavs tried that already. Curry's incredible court vision and ability to split defenders allowed many open shots for his team mates and easy assists for him.

It's probably the only option right now though.

Right....the goal is to try and slow Curry down, wear him out a bit. So, come fourth quarter Curry has less energy. Maybe he miss some of those 3's in the fourth. He's not Superman! He will get tired. I have yet to see S. Curry play through real adversity. Teams don't hard foul him, I haven't seen him in a hostile confrontation. It will come. The game has a physical, emotional, and energy aspect to it. (from in-the-zone to loss of control). It's human behavior....i'd like to see someone take Curry more towards the loss of control/emotional part. Maybe he get 80 points that night, or he melt down/make a huge mistake. You never know.


Bottom line: Teams are not going to stop Curry. But, they can make it harder for him to do what he do.

Getting the ball out of Curry's hands by double teaming him is why Green is averaging nearly 8 assists a game. Plus Green in the middle of the floor puts opposing teams in foul trouble trying to scramble to cover.

I think Curry has to be single teamed and defenders HAVE to stay home.

I agree with this completely.

I think everyone is so AFRAID that when Curry starts scoring and hitting crazy 3's, they feel they need to trap/double him. That's where the mistake happens.

Curry can't be stopped so the opposing coach needs to single team him, make him convert difficult shots and do everything to keep the other players from getting easy shots.
