It wasn't easy for the Cleveland Cavaliers to lose on their home floor last year. It meant not only that the Cavs (and their fans) had to see their season end at home, but also that the Warriors celebrated their title in the Cavs' visiting locker room.
Tonight, of course, marks the first time that the Warriors have played in Cleveland since they won the title back in June. Warriors guard Steph Curry was asked about returning to the scene of the Warriors' title win and he's very much looking forward to it.
"Obviously, walking in the lock room, it'll be good memories," Curry told Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group. "Hopefully, it smells a bit like champagne."
Well played, Steph, well played.
