1. What’s the most important thing to watch for the Cavaliers in the Finals?
Amin Elhassan, ESPN.com: Can the Cavs’ defense be more consistent? Glass half-full: A defense that was bottom-two in the NBA during the regular season managed to be about league average in the postseason, allowing 105.9 points per 100 possessions. Glass half-empty: That defensive rating comes with a lot of variance, with Cleveland posting six games in which it allowed more than 110 points per 100 possessions. The Cavs have to find a way to be more disciplined and vigilant consistently throughout 48 minutes against a Warriors team that doesn’t need much daylight to blow a game wide-open.
