A phrase don't fear failure, just fear regret has all week been going around Cavaliers coach Dan Roden's head.
"That's not a bad way to sum up in terms we just play our game," he said, "and if we do play our absolute best and it's not good enough, we have to be super happy still."
Just Shelby Miller, 22, and Dana Lester, 21, went to the Cavaliers' last big dance five seasons back, but not to the last premiership in 2013.
"It is their first experience at a grand final, but I am just as green as well," Roden said.
"We go into it together as a whole group with a game plan that's stood up all year.
"I believe if we execute it the way we have done the last two games, that would put us in striking distance of putting one hand on the cup."
But Roden is not foolish.
ELSEWHERE IN SPORT
"That's where they have it over us in some respects. On the day, either team can win, but they're going in with a lot more experience," he said.
"The year before last, we didn't even make the finals."
It's been a strong rebuild for the Cavaliers under club coach Dannie Carstens that Roden's bump from assistant has added that extra edge.
But Roden does feel grand finals are an unusual beast that could affect preparation.
"Some teams can hit the blocks running and from the first whistle, you know they're up and about," he said.
"Others, I guess, can capitulate in the pressure of a grand final. It's about making sure when you turn up, you can bring your best game.
"We talk about remaining calm and composed, important to enjoy the week, but focus that yes it is a grand final, yes the stakes are high and there's no second chances."
