NBA's Golden State in rare territory

"Golden State had won a record 73 regular-season games previous year and led 2-0 only for Cleveland to make the greatest comeback in NBA Finals history and swipe the title".

Steve Kerr was back on the bench as the head coach for the Warriors.

Cleveland has to run Golden State off the perimeter and avoid switching screens as the mismatch isolation situations is what the Warriors are looking to create in their halfcourt offense. "They won their first two games like they're supposed to".

This time, Curry committed eight turnovers as Cleveland committed to putting more pressure on the ball to keep Durant from driving and dunking untouched as he did so many times in Game 1. He hadn't reached double figures in points or rebounds this year in the first two games combined.

Q: Do you let yourself think back to a year ago with your Game 2 loss.

Klay Thompson added 22 points for the Warriors. We understand how unsafe they are. Not four times in five games, at least, which is what the Cavs now have to win to repeat as champions.

"They play well at home". No one else has more than two.

I guess we will have to wait for Wednesday 9:00 pm ET on ABC, as the NBA Finals shift to the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. "There is a lot of work for us left to do". "He does so much for us on the defensive end, and his presence on the floor as a threat to shoot [helps] even if he doesn't get an attempt up".

"We know this is far from over".

What was so discouraging for the Cavs is that they played better in Game 2 but the result didn't really change.

Durant and Curry each scored 15 first-half points, but Golden State had 13 turnovers at the break after just four in the series opener.

If there's anything that has cost Golden State wins during the season, it has been turnovers - a key element which the Cleveland Cavaliers are sure to hone into for their two-game home stand this week. We're looking forward to it. He discussed the rough third quarter.

Durant was once again the best player on the court as he electrified the gold-clad sold-out crowd at Oracle Arena with 33 points and 13 rebounds to go with five blocks and three steals.

James: No. It has nothing to do with wins and losses, though.

Having Kerr there sure did - the Warriors felt whole again.

"They're obviously trying to make a few other guys make plays", Irving said.

The first half, in particular, was different on may levels from Game 1.

But while James tied Magic Johnson for the all-time postseason record with his eighth triple double, Kyrie Irving shot 8-for-23. Kevin Love put in 27 points and Kyrie Irving finished with 19.

But after being so close previous year and falling short, the Warriors know how hard the next two will be.
