Gold-out tonight at Quicken Loans Arena for Cavs-Hawks Game 1

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

Kyle Korver says he doesn't hold a grudge against Matthew Dellavedova, who ended Korver's year in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals last postseason when the Cavs point guard dove for a loose ball and rolled into Korver's ankle. Korver underwent surgery to repair the ankle last offseason. "You can't acknowledge it or it is a thing," Korver said when asked how to guard against reacting if things get chippy with Dellavedova this series. "You just play. I don't think there is any kind of ill will."

Can the Hawks upset Cavs and LeBron?

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Kevin Love on the Hawks' D: "Defensively, with opponents field-goal percentage, I think they were the best in the league, so they're a team that's going to force you into tough shots, get into you, have the ability to play physical, so we got to be ready to go."

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

LeBron James did not want to entertain any trash talk from Kent Bazemore on Monday prior to Game 1 vs. Atlanta: "The only thing that matters to me is Cavs vs. Hawks, not about anybody individually. This is a team game and that's all that matters"

LeBron James on if ATL is an "easier" opponent considering the Cavs' familiarity: "Nothing is easy in the postseason. There's too much work both on the floor and mentally that you have to do to prepare for a playoff series understanding how the competition is going to be at its highest level. Easy should never even come into play when you're talking about playoff basketball or basketball in general at this level."

Dave McMenamin ESPN Staff Writer 

Kyle Korver went out w/ a broken leg in G2 of the ECF last year. This year he's coming off a strong 1st Rd (12.2p on 45 pct from 3). Ty Lue has noticed: "We know he's dangerous ... In the last series, his plus/minus when he's on the floor was +78. When he was off the floor, they were -24, so we know how important he is"

HeyWindy: Cavs will play Hawks in Round 2

Jeff Teague on if the Hawks are a better defensive team this time around against Cavs than in East Finals last year: "We were slowing up when we came into the series last year. I think we reached our peak kind of early and right now, we are still growing defensively and getting a lot better. I think the offense will catch up with it."
