Game 2 of Cavs-Warriors starts like track meet

Stephen Curry has tied Paul Pierce's NBA Finals record with 10 free throws made in a quarter.

Their leader and reigning NBA Coach of the Year back on the bench after a six-week absence, Curry and Kevin Durant tag-teamed the Warriors within two victories of another championship. It got louder during the formal introductions.

The 32-year-old playmaker has won a road game in 35 of 38 playoff series over his 12 National Basketball Association playoff campaigns, last failing to do so with Cleveland against Orlando in the 2009 Eastern Conference finals. "I don't know. We have not lost, so that's a good indication that it was not a distraction". They're going to try to get more offensive rebounds. In the first half of Game 2 of the NBA Finals, he chose the rim.

Love gave the Cavs a needed second offensive threat with 27 points but against a team filled with a pair of former MVPs in Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, two other 2017 all-stars in Draymond Green and Klay Thompson and several role players who have made key contributions, it wasn't been almost enough.

The game marked the return of Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who was sidelined earlier in the playoffs by persistent back pain following several surgeries.

Who: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Game 3 is Wednesday in Cleveland where the Cavs will look to regain the magic that helped them overcome deficits of 2-0 and 3-1 in last year's Finals.

Going back to 1996-97, this is the first time that both teams recorded at least 30 fast break points in the same postseason game.

"We have encouraged those companies to work with our content, to find new ways to connect their users directly into the National Basketball Association, whether it's through our players, whether it's through our teams or through the league office", he said. And Golden State guard Klay Thompson, lately in an uncharacteristic shooting slump, finished with 22 points and seven rebounds. But no team has done that better over the last three years than the Warriors themselves. "Just having a guy that has been here, done that before, has so much confidence in everything that we do and walks the walk, allows us to be ourselves and be confident in approaching game two".

"I approach every game the same way, no matter if I'm at home or on the road", James said.

Kerr said he decided Sunday morning he felt well enough to coach from the team bench for up two weeks should the finals stretch to the limit. It doesn't make a difference on what jersey you wear.

When a superteam makes optimal decisions, no one stands a chance - not even the best player of all time and his Cavaliers.

Were you surprised how much Kevin got through the lane and in Game 1 untouched, and what adjustments do you expect to see?
