Warriors double National Basketball Association lead

Share

After his remarkable performance in Game 1, finishing with 38 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and no turnovers to lead Golden State to a victory, Durant followed that up with 33 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, three steals and five blocks in Game 2. "So it's good to have him back over there". We love his voice.

Late Monday night, Spider Studios, a studio in OH that apparently recorded the song, released some video of the track as a teaser, and said that they'd release the whole thing if they hit a million retweets on the video.

LeBron James had 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists in defeat, the eighth postseason triple-double of his career, equaling Magic Johnson's all-time record.

"We'll win the next game and see what happens from there", said Cavs forward Tristan Thompson, who might be pulled from the starting lineup to add more scoring punch and defensive versatility.

James: No, I'm not a past guy too much. "We get a chance to go home now to our home crowd where we play well, also".

If Thompson's offensive game is back on track, it's going to be very hard for the Cavs to derail a Warriors team that has taken on the look of a juggernaut with their NBA-record 14th straight playoff win. "We're plain and simple going to have to play better". "And both of them, to me, it seemed like it's personal for both of them". "More importantly, it felt good to get the win".

Thompson countered that the Warriors are so focused on him that it's opening things up for Kevin Love. The Cavaliers gave them a run in the first half, but they just couldn't keep up as the third quarter wore on. Durant sank a contested three-pointer over Richard Jefferson as the shot clock expired.

After being blown out in Game 1 by 22 points, the Cleveland Cavaliers made significant adjustments that saw a more physical defense and a more aggressive approach on the offensive end. The Warriors' Game 1 blowout over the Cleveland Cavaliers last Thursday night was ESPN's most-streamed Finals game in history, and it was the third most-watched Game 1 ever on ABC.

- NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) June 5, 2017If there was any doubt that this is the same series as a year ago, @Rachel_Nichols says Sunday cleared it up.

You never know when the dynamite could go off, but Green sounded like a man of his word Sunday when he said, "I think I'm a pretty smart guy, and I learned my lesson".

Q: Do you let yourself think back to previous year with your Game 2 loss. But playing up allows him to hit the little pocket pass or throw it over the top to their big, and then they're able to make plays.

Durant and Curry had 15 points apiece for the Warriors in the half. That's what made what became the defining play of Game 2 - Curry dribbling around for about 10 seconds before blowing by James and getting to the rim for a layup - so striking. It's not a new strategy: for each of the Cavaliers-Warriors' Finals, Cleveland warped its defense to Curry in an effort to make the rest of the team beat them.

It didn't matter in the end.

And Thompson's offense is the final piece that the Warriors have been lacking all postseason, a postseason in which they've won 14 straight games.

The Finals shift to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4 on Wednesday and Friday.
