CLEVELAND, Ohio — There’s a huge task ahead for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they look to take the next four out of five games from the Golden State Warriors.

That’s why tonight’s game is so important.

The Cavs and the Warriors were both at Quicken Loans Arena practicing and talking with media Tuesday.

The Cavs know they need to play better.

In two games, the Cavs played offense without movement to a large degree. It wasn’t the brand we had seen in some previous play-off wins.

They’ve been sloppy with high turnovers, and on the defense end, they’ve been stepping up late on many possessions.

Both Coach Tyronn Lue and LeBron James say tonight’s game plan is to “just play better.”

“We just can’t turn the basketball over like we’ve been doing,” said Lue.

“We’re a confident bunch, especially at home,” said James. “Our role players have given us a huge boost, especially home fans have done a great job giving us everything. It’s our job to give it back to them.”

Kevin Love is still questionable after entering concussion protocol after Game 2.

Game 3 starts at 9 p.m.
