1. Keep Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson off the three-point line

Curry and Thompson love to shoot threes and with good reason. Both were finalists in the Three-Point Shooting Contest this past All-Star Weekend. On top of that, Curry averages 3.2 made three-pointers per game out of the eight he attempts. That has him shooting the three at a solid 40.4%, which is great for a guard who handles the ball as much as he does. Thompson averages 3.1 made three-pointers per game and attempts seven. That means he shoots the three-ball at a 43.9% clip, good for fourth in the NBA.

Cleveland needs to emphasize and maybe overemphasize the importance of running Curry and Thompson off the three-point line to try and create plays inside the arc. They are both very good at creating as well, but both shoot the three-ball so well, that at least one of them needs to be neutralized.
