The Hawks put up a fight in Game 1, but the Cavs seemed disinterested after a fast start. Once Atlanta threatened, Cleveland turned the switch back on and closed out the game strong. That tells me that Cleveland should be able to cruise in this series as long as they “want it.” For a game at home, it shouldn’t be too tough for the Cavs to be on top of their game. They shook off any rust from a long layoff in Game 1. Look for them to pick up another double-digit win tonight.
