Former Cavs general manager David Griffin recalls overhearing LeBron coaching the Raps during a game last season on how to properly execute one of theirs sets. Cleveland will enter its showdown with Boston as the favorite, in large because LeBron James has been playing off the charts this postseason, but it's obvious the feisty C's have no intentions of just bowing to The King.
Kevin Love scored 21 and Kyle Korver added 18 for the Cavs, and despite a late fightback from the Raptors in the fourth quarter, Cleveland and James proved too good to put the Cavaliers a game away from securing a spot in the Eastern Conference finals.
After a seven-minute clean-up, Belinelli recovered to make a 23-footer at the start of overtime, followed by a three-pointer from Redrick.
While his need to be the focal point is understandable, Griffin believes both him and James could have co-existed together much like Jordan and Pippen did for the Chicago Bulls.
Last summer, the biggest National Basketball Association story was that of Kyrie Irving and his departure from the Cleveland Cavaliers in a trade to the Boston Celtics. I've never seen a change in a player. "And he really wanted that". He wanted a chance to do it on a good team. And I remember saying, 'Oh this is not good. LeBron can score; he doesn't need me to score. "I'm not a better defender than he is.' So I think you get to the point where the fit and the need LeBron had for Kyrie wasn't going to allow him to become Scottie because he didn't need Kyrie to fill in the gaps, necessarily".
