Wednesday links: Let's talk Dubs backcourt!

Predictions (via Poor Man's Commish):

  • Kyrie Irving gets 20 points, 8 assists: Hard not to overstate how outstanding Irving has been this season - as written at SB Nation's Cleveland Cavaliers site Fear the Sword, he's been dominating elite NBA point guards.
  • Dion Waiters gets held under 20 points: Remember how Zach Lowe mentioned at Grantland that he was impressed with Klay Thompson's defense? Let's see how he does tonight.
  • Combined points over 200: Neither Golden State nor Cleveland have been playing at breakneck pace this season, if the Warriors get a good offensive game from their big guns and struggle to defend the Cavs' backcourt this could be a high-scoring affair.
