The Hawks will try to bounce back at home and get a win after game 2’s record breaking 3-point party by the Cavs. Watch all the NBA playoff action on live stream here!
The Cavaliers dropped a record-breaking 25, 3’s on the Hawks during game 2. Let that sink in for a minute. The Cavs went on to win 123-98. So, 75 of the 123 points from Cleveland came from downtown. Wow! That is more 3’s than any other team during regular season play or post, incredible.
The Cavaliers have not yet lost a playoff game this season and it doesn’t look like they are going to anytime soon. The Hawks were demoralized by the Cavs in game 2 and were down by 36 points before the second half even began. Cleveland was able to score at will against the Hawks because of Atlanta’s horrible defense. If the Hawks want to get back in this series they can’t leave guys open all over the floor like they did in game 2.
The Cavaliers had a balanced attack in game 2 with every starter scoring in double digits. Cleveland was able to rest their starters in the fourth after they dominated the Hawks in the first three quarters. If the Hawks want back in this series, the only thing they will need to do differently is everything.
What do you think HollywoodLifers? Will the Cavs complete the sweep of the outmatched Hawks team? Or will Atlanta crack down on defense and find a way to slow down LeBron? Can the Hawks get a win at home? Let us know who you will be rooting for in this contest?
