One of my favorite horror films of all time is the 2010 movie, The Crazies.
(From Wikipedia)… The film takes place in the fictional town of Ogden Marsh, Pierce County, Iowa, “friendliest place on Earth,” whose town water supply is accidentally infected with the “Trixie” virus. After an incubation period of 48 hours, this virus gradually transforms the mental state of the infected into that of cold, calculating, depraved, bloodthirsty killers, who then prey on family and neighbors alike. There is a scene in the movie, where the town is being taken over by zombie-like creatures. Sheriff David Dutten, played by Timothy Olyphant, realizes something is horribly wrong. His cell phone, computers and phone in his office are all out of service. He looks at his deputy and says, “You know what, we’re in trouble.” After losing Game 2 to the Boston Celtics I Imagine Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tryonn Lue saying the same thing to his staff… “You know what, we’re in trouble.”
Game 3 Preview:
Boston did what they had to do in the first two games and protected home court. The Celtics are now 10-0 at home in the post-season. The Series resumes Saturday night at 8:30 PM, in Cleveland. The Cavs role players are looking for their home crowd to give them a shot of adrenaline.
JR Smith came out and said,“We have to ramp it up, We’re playing too slow. We’re making LeBron James play hero ball, Which is tough to do, especially in the Eastern Conference Finals. We’ve got to help.
James had 42 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists in Game 2 but it wasn’t enough. Smith was held scoreless and has 4 total points in 2 games. He has been the worst staring player in the series.
Game Three Adjustments:
The Celtics just have to stay the course. Their biggest battle is to not get down early. You don’t want their young players down by double digits, on the road, at the end of the first quarter.
George Hill has not been able to get the Cavs in any offensive sets. He is struggling off the pick and roll to get into the paint. Celtics defenders are pushing him out to the three point line. He is being physical manhandled.
The Cavs coaching staff should start.
Larry Nance Jr. should be the first one off the bench along with 23 -year- old, Cedi Osman. The Cavs need to match the Celtics length, size and athleticism, these players can do that.
The Cavs should win Game 3. A series doesn’t officially start until a team loses a game at home. No matter who wins the Eastern Conference Finals, I would be very shocked if the Celtics don’t trade Kyrie Irving in the off-season and if “King James” was paying for Cleveland next year. The Cavs might be in trouble here.
