Cavs crunch time: Shot distribution, selection come to forefront

As a two-day break between Games 4 and 5 allows for at least a partial reset of the 2015 NBA Finals, a specific tension point has emerged for the Cleveland Cavaliers. At the very least, if this tension point existed in previous games, it seems even more urgent now. If Cleveland struggled with shot selection and shot distribution in previous games, the team’s smothering defense...

NBA Finals game four preview: Golden State at Cleveland

I’ll just go ahead and admit it. I’m shocked. After losing Kyrie Irving to a fractured kneecap in overtime of game one, I thought the Cleveland Cavaliers were finished. The Golden State Warriors, despite their playoff inexperience, were simply too deep and too talented for the shorthanded Cavs, I assumed. But here we are, two games later, and Cleveland has won both to take control...

James Jones and David Blatt Quietly Help the Cavs

Sunday, I wrote here at Crossover Chronicles that the Cleveland Cavaliers’ presence in the 2015 NBA Finals magnified the job Erik Spoelstra did with the Miami Heat. The basic reasoning behind that claim is simple and hard to refute: Spoelstra did not get the fully mature LeBron James Blatt has in Cleveland.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' challenge without Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving won’t play for the rest of the 2015 NBA Finals. That news came down Friday afternoon, giving the Cleveland Cavaliers roughly 48 hours to prepare how to play in his absence.

Are You (Playoff) Experienced? Pt. 2

A few weeks ago, I used 31 NBA postseasons worth of data to test the clichéd hypothesis that prior playoff experience is important to success in the NBA playoffs. I asked the questions, “Does playoff experience matter?,” “How much does it matter?,” “Is playoff experience the only thing that matters?” and, “While we’re at it, does anything really matter?” My...
