The Warriors possess four 2017 All-Stars, three 2017 All-NBA team members and had the highest-scoring offense during the offense. They are 12-0 this postseason and have won those 12 games by an average of 16.3 points.
The Celtics lost All-NBA point guard Isaiah Thomas for the rest of the postseason and don't have another All-Star on the roster.
But for Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue, it sounds like he has an easier time scheming to defend the Warriors.
"The stuff (the Celtics are) running, it's harder to defend than Golden State's (offense) for me, as far as the actions and all the running around and all the guys who are making all the plays, so it's a totally different thing. Like, they hit the post, Golden State runs splits and all that stuff but these guys are running all kinds of (stuff). And Brad's (Stevens) got them moving and cutting and playing with pace and everybody is a threat," Lue said Wednesday, according to Cleveland.com.
The Cavs rallied to beat the Celtics in Game 4 on Tuesday night to take a 3-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Despite the commanding series lead, Lue isn't looking ahead of a potential NBA Finals matchup with the Warriors.
"You can't. As much as you want to, it's not over," Lue told reporters.
The Cavs have a chance to wrap up the Eastern Conference Finals on Thursday when they face the Celtics in Boston.
The NBA Finals begin June 1 in Oakland.
