Good call on the Jazz being a team that can frustrate the Cavs.
Quin Snyder is the only Coach who is undefeated against a LeBron team, having played his team at least 5 times. He’s 5-0. Has LeBron’s number.

Well, I expect that to continue if Tyronne runs P-n-Rs cause Utah can hang. Shelvin Mack isn’t too bad of a defender, and it helps having the Stifle Tower back there.
Are the Cavs gonna turn Korver into a bench version of K-Love? Cause a couple of years ago when ATL won 60 part of what made him so dangerous was that Reggie Miller style of running all over the court for 3s. Him being stationary is a waste of an important aspect of his game (like Steph, Klay, Dame D.O.L.L.A. and Isaiah Thomas) -- they can pull up from ANYWHERE.
Ty’s got some time to figure things out though. I mean, how hot would it be if they ran a pistol offense with LBJ as the screener, and the exchange between Kyrie and Korver on the strong side? Pair that with Tristan hanging around the baseline and putting K-Love on that side to smash an open wing-3? And if you get no looks, you can always do LBJ running that Dirk-style FT-post after the hand-off from Kyrie/Korver.
Plenty of weapons to play with!
I imagine it’ll work out where Channing Frye is the more stationary target, great shooter as we all know…on ball skills are not bad but not good either…
I’m not sure if the Cavs can implement those sets with him….Hawks had bruiser screens and misdirections…
A lot of new guys who play with a LeBron get caught in awe, ball watching, some pick it up quickly.
Because you’re right, standing around, not moving plays into the hands of teams that switch consistently…eventually a good Defense can adjust to Ty’s Pick and Rolls…when he telegraphs them…
