Not even two bad home losses to the Cavs can discourage Kent Bazemore. The Hawks are now trailing 0-2 in the Eastern Conference finals, and Bazemore still thinks that the Hawks are the better team.
The Cavs won Game 2 emphatically 94-82, despite not having Kyrie Irving due to his knee injury. Bazemore, however, is staying confident and believes the top-seeded Hawks still have the better team.
“We played them in the regular season this year and got the best of them,” Bazemore said in reference to the Hawks’ 3-1 record against the Cavs this past season. “I still think we’re the better team. We just haven’t shown it yet.”
“The bright side is we haven’t played well the first two games. We still think we’re the better team. We’ll try to get two up in Cleveland,” Bazemore said. “We’ve got to play angry.”
“We got a little frustrated. We got a little rattled,” Bazemore said. “There’s a lot of basketball left. They came here and got two. No reason we can’t do the same thing up there.”
