Cavaliers Offense: Watching LeBron James run the half-court offense when there was no trap was like watching a quarterback throw when there is no pass rush. Cleveland shouldn't change a thing, keep running a slow offense that allows the game to stay in control. The Cavs should expect the Wizards to trap James sooner and force him to give up possession. The Cavs can counter this by having one of their wing players stay even with James. When James releases to the wing, they can easily get the ball to their shooters in the corner. The scary thing is that Larry Hughes gave the Cavaliers nothing offensively; he looked a little hesitant. Do not expect that to carry over into Game 2.
