Cavs not looking to slow down pace of Finals with Warriors

There are rumblings that he is not 100 percent (his knees are reportedly bothering him), and that may well be true, but you can ask Curry if there is any sympathy for that as an excuse in the Finals.

"We love his presence".

Golden State improved to 14-0 this postseason to keep alive a chance of becoming the first group to go unbeaten all the way to a title.

LeBron James had 29 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists in Game 2, so we doubt that he's thinking much about a rap track from six years ago at this point, with the Cavaliers down in an 0-2 NBA Finals hole.

Kerr, a five-time National Basketball Association champion as a player, had been absent since game two of his side's first play-off series against Portland Trail Blazers after suffering complications from back surgery in 2015. "We have won a lot of games playing the way we play, so we're not going to change". ". Maybe get a little teary-eyed". With a win in Game 3 they would pass the 1992-93 Pittsburgh Penguins for the most consecutive playoff wins by any major professional sports team. "And we forced them to 20 turnovers, and they still beat us pretty good, so we got to be much better, too".

To accomplish the feat, Curry rocked the Under Armour Curry 4 on the court, the same shoe he wore in Game 1 on June 1.

James needs help. From the bench. We don't need him to be aggressive to try to get everyone else involved. The Cavs looked deflated after getting beaten down again by the Warriors on Sunday.

Lue said a full 48 minutes of defensive focus will be needed to contain the Warriors. "We know what to expect from that standpoint. We literally have never once mentioned 16-0", Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Curry made 18 of 39 shots and has scored 60 points.

Green then proceeded to explain what makes Durant so unique. James is doing his part, averaging 28.5 points, 13.0 rebounds, 11.0 assists and 1.5 blocks while shooting 55 percent from the field and 33 percent from long distance.

"You hate to continue to put yourself in those positions", James said of constantly being behind, "but at the end of the day it's still just basketball, man". Like, we still got two more games to win and those two will be way harder than the first two. The three-time champion stopped driving to the basket in the second half of Game 2 and he looked spent on the bench when he took a break during the third quarter.

The NBA Finals head to Cleveland for Game 3 Wednesday night. Curry's 10 first-quarter free throws equaled Paul Pierce for most in a Finals quarter. That's what makes it so much fun, to feel the energy of the Finals. We started switching more when Draymond [Green] took over that power forward role.

Durant, seeking his first NBA crown after leaving Oklahoma City last July to join Golden State, became only the third player in NBA history to score 25 points in his first seven NBA Finals appearances, joining Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal.
