The Cavs are down 2-0 in the NBA Finals after a loss at Golden State. But fans in Akron didn’t seem too concerned about the team’s chances when they return home for game three on Wednesday.

They were glued to TV screens at Mr. Zub’s in Akron’s Highland Square for the first three quarters of last night’s game. But they began losing interest as Golden State widened their lead in the fourth.

The Cavs play game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday night against a familiar foe – The Golden State Warriors. The two teams are playing for the title for the fourth consecutive year.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto says this Cavs team is much different than the one that lost in the Finals last year. Most notably, the team successfully moved on from Kyrie Irving in a big trade that initially went bust.
