Kyle Korver says LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are not looking past the Toronto Raptors, but they’re already thinking sweep. Korver spoke after a Game 2 blowout about the focus his teammates have this postseason and just how impressed he’s been with James’ work ethic this year.
With LeBron and Co. firing on all cylinders and James putting up 39 points on just 14 shots in Game 2, the shooting guard even talked about how big another week off between series would be if they swept Toronto.
“I know sweeps are hard to get,” Korver said, “but these guys have been doing that, and it’s like they want to sweep so they get that week [off between rounds]. Having that thought in their heads – ‘If we sweep this team, we’re going to have that time off’ – not many teams go into a playoff series thinking that. You’re just trying to win the series. But they were like, ‘Trust us.’”
