Interesting Tweets
(after the game)
ROSGO21 (Rosalyn Gold-Onwude): Draymond Green shared w/ me his back "is locked up at all times- pain w/ explosion, jumping & contact". Hurt it Game 2, 3rd qtr after fall.
SherwoodStrauss: I said the Warriors were calm, almost cheerful in the locker room after going down 1-2 to Memphis. This scene was totally different

mcten (Dave McMenamin): The Cavs announce Delly experienced severe cramping in the game and required an IV. He's going to the Cleveland Clinic for more treatment.
uograd66 (Jim Barnett): Strange scene: Walking out of Cavs Arena at 1:35 am and I see Matthew Dellavedova get on a stretcher and get taken away in an ambulance.


- During the broadcast, Doris Burke reported that Draymond Green was suffering from a tight back, due to a tough fall in Game 2. This is confirmed by Ros's tweet.

What's next?

- The seriousness of this series just got increased by 10. Last time we were down, it was against the Grizzlies. But is there any adjustment we can make to break down their defense?
