NEW YORK (WFAN) — MSG Networks’ Brendan Brown appeared as a guest on Mike Francesa’s show Monday to discuss the NBA playoffs.
Of the Cavaliers-Raptors series, which Cleveland leads 2-1 entering Game 4 on Monday night, Brown said: “The problem with Toronto … can they score enough? And if you get into an up-tempo sort of situation with Cleveland, which Cleveland invites, then you’re in a lot of trouble. And it’s no surprise that the winning score of that game (Saturday) was 99-84, and that’s the way that Toronto wants to play if they’re going to stay in this, if they’re going to make something happen.”
Meanwhile in the Western Conference finals, the Thunder hold a surprising 2-1 advantage against the defending champion Wizards.
“What’s going on is Russell Westbrook and his dominance in transition offense, and Golden State just does not have a very good answer for it,” Brown said.
