It will be the first time the city is hosting an NBA Finals, and while fans are geared up to cheer their team on, the Cavs must find a way to stay consistent and not wait until the end of the game to get hot. “We have to find a way to pick up our intensity and carry on what happened in the fourth quarter into the rest of the game,” Cavaliers star LeBron James said.
