After blowing out the Warriors in Game 3, the Cavs were a happy bunch at the podium. Kyrie Irving found his shooting touch and took over the game from the start, LeBron James had the type of all-around game that’s become commonplace for him, and J.R. Smith finally started hitting some threes. But perhaps most importantly, the Cavaliers were able to stifle the Splash Brothers for yet another game – and finally got a victory to go along with it.
Everyone is curious to know exactly what the Cavaliers are doing to slow down the most prolific shooting duo in league history. Klay Thompson and Steph Curry haven’t been as on point as they were all season long, and the duo haven’t had good games at the same time through any of the first three Finals matchups.
It’s a question that was on plenty of reporters’ minds, but one dutiful writer decided to ask it in his own special way, and toss out an amazing metaphor in the process. The result was gold from the Cavs, who just kind of looked around until they made Kyrie answer the question simply by virtue of the fact he’s the youngest of the three guys who were up there.
