The Alternate Side: Cavs Writer Gives Outlook On Warriors

For the “The Alternate Side” on the NBA Finals, I turned to David Zavac (@DavidZavac), who covers the Cavs for Fear the Sword. After the Finals ended last week, I asked David about the Warriors, his thoughts on the series and the future of both teams. 1. What were your expectations coming in to the series?

Warriors vs Cavs: Comparing the Atmospheres at Oracle & the Q

After years of covering games at Oracle, the last week provided the opportunity to experience the playoff atmosphere in a different arena and city.

Warriors’ Performance in Game 3 Calls For Changes

Warriors vs. Cavs: What We Learned From Games 1 & 2

When a series starts out with two close games, at points it becomes a matter of perspective. Some will argue that each team “should” be up 2-0.
