Kevin Durant has 13 points and Klay Thompson 10. The fact that James has been able to almost double these type of outings that Jordan had (six) in his NBA career does speak highly about not only his play on the floor but nine NBA Finals appearances. DEVELOPING: This story will be updated.
Klay Thompson, who took a tumble in Game 1 but did not appear to be seriously affected by injury on Sunday, played cautiously as he added 20 points. Kerr said the Warriors can't just sit back and let James attack, and the Warriors need a better effort on the backboards after getting outrebounded 53-38 in Game 1.
Game 2 wasn't Curry's most efficient outing (33 points on 11-for-26 shooting from the field) as he targeted Kevin Love as a mismatch.
McGee scored the first four points as Golden State made its initial seven shots and 10 of 11. After scoring 51 points in Game 1, it looks like he is in for another phenomenal NBA Finals.
His reaction in the final seconds of an overtime loss to Golden State demonstrated the frustration Thompson and all the Cavaliers felt about a game they were close to winning in regulation.
The Warriors made the announcement less than an hour before Sunday's game. After Game 2 Tyronn Lue said as much, specifically with regard to Green.
I could be wrong, but I think these two games are going to be emotionally draining for the Cavs - and especially, LeBron James.
We'll see what the Cavs have left.
And now, it's the fourth straight NBA Finals for Carlos Santana. Whatever was going through Smith's head, the miscommunication was obvious and highlights the troubles facing Cleveland going into Game 2. They're good. They're great, actually. Smith may not have realized the game was still tied, and now says that he's not even quite sure anymore what transpired in those few, dramatic moments.
Instead of pondering the title he didn't win, Calderon is expected about the one he might yet get with Cleveland.
