6 Keys For The Cavs To Win The NBA Finals
5. Get Boards
The Cavs are undefeated in the postseason when outrebounding their opponents. In the Eastern Conference Finals alone, the Cavs averaged 52 rebounds per game, compared to the Hawks 37.5. Leading the charge is LeBron James, who is averaging 10.4 boards, followed closely by Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov with 9.9 and 7.4 RPG respectively. Overall the Cavs are averaging 46.9 rebounds per game, just ahead of the Warrior’s average of 46.2. The Big men are going to have a tough matchup against the likes of Andrew Bogut, Draymond Green, and Harrison Barnes, but if they continue to rebound like they did in the ECF, they will be able to handle the Warriors.
