The Cavs began to turn things around last year after being outscored by 48 points in the first two losses in Oakland - seven more than this year. "Now we got to go home and regroup".
The Warriors, who welcomed back coach Steve Kerr after he missed 11 games with health issues following 2015 back surgery, grabbed a 2-0 edge in the best-of-seven series, which shifts to Cleveland for games three and four on Wednesday and Friday.
"We're anxious about the series", Durant said.
"We did a great job of covering the 3-point line but other than that they played a (heck) of a game", James said.
Thompson said he will continue to crash the glass before worrying about retreating back on defense, even though Golden State outscored Cleveland 27-9 in fastbreak situations in Game 1.
When one reporter asked the Cavs' guard about Cleveland "dirtying up" the Finals, Smith rightfully took huge exception and threw Draymond Green's affinity for kicking opposing players in the nether-regions in his face. After to much went wrong in Game 1 - 20 turnovers, six Kevin Durant dunks, Steph Curry being Steph Curry, etc. - the Cavs need to rebound in Game 2.
"We turned the ball over too much in the first half". "More importantly, it felt good to get the win".
Iran will continue missile programme, says Rouhani
President Hassan Rouhani defeated his conservative rival Ebrahim Raisi - by a lot - in Iran's presidential elections on May 19. He called Trump's meeting with Saudi leaders "just a show" and declared it would not "have any political and practical value".
James was equally spectacular with his own triple-double of 29 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds, but yet again didn't get almost enough help to keep up with the Warriors' depth. James said he would do his best to be ready for the series opener when his mind was elsewhere, concerned for his wife and children back in Ohio. "He's an incredible guy and I'm lucky to have him". So, I know we can play better.
"We were really, really good in that department at just being ourselves, playing Warriors basketball, knowing that there's a lot of talent out on the floor", said Curry, who had 28 points and 10 assists.
Thompson insisted he didn't need to change much regarding his approach, and his teammates and coaches consistently expressed little concern, pointing to his general contributions to the team's ideal postseason.
In a mouth-watering match up of two talent-stacked rosters, the Warriors again showed they had the greater firepower, thanks largely to the addition of Kevin Durant since they lost last season's finals series to the Cavaliers.
James and Kyrie Irving shot 19 for 42 between them but the sloppy ball handling allowed the Warriors to take almost as many shots - 106 - as they had points.
That was surely the reaction to game 1 of the NBA Finals by those jaded from following what can only be described as one of the least interesting playoffs in history over the last month and a half. James was just as remarkable with 29 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds. He added 10 assists and two blocks in keeping his Cavs within three points at halftime, 67-64. It also matched Paul Pierce for most in a Finals quarter.
Draymond Green loved watching Durant do his thing easily down the middle in his first Finals game for Golden State. He coached the Warriors to their first championship since moving West in 1975 and watched as a team ambassador as Golden State captured its first title since then two years ago.
They split the first two, and it wouldn't surprise anyone to see either team take home the Larry O'Brien trophy this year. Steve Kerr continues to deal with complications from a back surgery but hopes to be ready to coach in the NBA Finals .
He is still learning about Indy, watching as numerous past Indy 500s as he can, although he has yet to see a replay of his own. But weather delays on Saturday pushed qualifying late into the day, giving Hildebrand only one shot at making the cutoff.
He played just 18 minutes in game two while playing through the lingering pain. "There's not much more you could ask for". Thompson suggested the incident stemmed from the fact that James got his feelings hurt by Green's trash talking.

Ramadan for Muslims is much more than a time to abstain from eating, drinking or smoking between sunrise and sunset. Many students will tell you that they don't care if you eat in front of them, and chances are that might be true.
That hardly sounds like James, who not too long ago declared his confidence by noting, "I'm the best player in the world". So with that behind them, what do the Cavs have to worry about? Actually, it doesn't even keep you in the NFL.
Smart, who started in place of Thomas, said , "Everybody had to step up their game, especially with one of our brothers down". I just have to keep going and figure out what I've gotta do to come back at the highest level possible".
