last year's game three did not go well for the warriors. what are you expecting for this game three in cleveland this time around. >> this year around, i think what's different is that the warriors are a different team. the cavs are a different team. most of the cavs players there there is one dementiality on that team, they can shoot but can't defend, or can defend they can't shoot. if they start fast they should be able to take game three. >> game three. let's keep our fingers cross-ed. back in a moment.
