CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Tyrone Lue was pretty forthcoming about his game plan for Game 4 on Monday night.
"To make a shot", the Cavs head coach said with a laugh, talking with reporters at Air Canada Centre prior to the Cavaliers' practice on Monday morning. "To make some shots. I know our guys will. I don't expect Kevin and Kyrie to shoot the ball the way they did in Game 3. We'll be ready to go."
Love and Irving had their worst shooting performance of the season in Game 3, combining to go 4-of-28 from the field, and scoring 16 points collectively.
But Monday, the focus was on Kyrie, who was double-teamed frequently by the Raptors, who held him to 13 points and only 1 assist.
"They're forcing me to get off the ball, forcing me to drive in (Bismack) Biyombo...their antennas are definitely up on everything I'm doing", Irving said on Monday. "It's just a great game plan for them, so we'll just see where we can attack it, where I can attack it a lot better tonight."
LeBron James still scored 24 points in the loss on Saturday night, but knows the Cavaliers are far more efficient when he's not carrying the scoring load.
"We've got to be a lot better than we were in Game 3", James said, "and I believe we will be."
I asked LeBron if he's still confident that the Cavs are in control of the series.
"I'm always confident in that."
