Cavaliers' Tyronn Lue: 'I don't even think about' Warriors

For the sake of the Cavaliers , we hope to see the dominant James, because the James we've seen since game three will not cut it against a stacked Warriors team, which is resting and waiting for them.

The intent of being mentally and physically fresh was very important. "I think one of the two best balanced sides I would say in the world at the moment". "I generally expect placid wickets, and that's the way you prepare for a limited-overs competition".
