The Cleveland Cavaliers were non factors in falling behind in the finals 0-2 to the record setting Warriors but they gave Golden State a dose of their own medicine in Wednesday’s one sided rout. LeBron James finally looked dominant with 32 points on 14-25 with eleven rebounds and six helpers while Kyrie Irving was right behind him with 30 points on 12-25 with eight helpers. JR Smith was next in line with 20 points with Tristan Thompson adding 14 points and a game high 13 boards. The key for the Cavs is their stars played the part and held the Golden State bench in check while 52.7% shooting didn’t hurt either.
