During the 2017-18 NBA season the Cleveland Cavaliers have played against the defending NBA Champion, Golden State Warriors twice.
In both games the Warriors have defeated the Cavaliers, once on Christmas without Isaiah Thomas and also just on Monday when the Cavaliers had a healthy Thomas.
ESPN’s Jalen Rose had an interesting take into the future. Rose claims that the Cavaliers will be back in the NBA Finals for a fourth consecutive year but he believes that the Cavs won’t even win a single game in the NBA Finals.

The NBA trade deadline is less than a month away (February 8th at 3 pm EST) and it appears that the Cavs are going to need to make a move to even compete with the Warriors.
The Warriors have became more threatening since adding Kevin Durant during the 2016-17 season. Most recently Golden State added Nick Young this past offseason.
Who knows what can happen in June, this is Cleveland after all and Cleveland always seems to thrive whenever they are determined as a underdog, only time will tell.
