But one reporter decided it'd be a good idea to ask the Cavs star if his team now needs to win at home after falling 2-0 in the series to the Warriors Sunday night.

CLEVELAND, USA - Two wins from completing the first unbeaten playoff championship run in National Basketball Association history, the Golden State Warriors are realizing the "super team" expectations they shouldered since signing Kevin Durant last July.

The offense picked up thanks to 27 points from Kevin Love and the Cavs scored 22 more points than in the opener in a faster-paced game, but that also helped the Warriors improve their shooting from 43 percent to 52 percent as Cleveland had a weaker defensive on the floor.

"I don't really care about history too much".

Curry and Kevin Durant tag-teamed the Warriors within two victories of another championship.

The Warriors won their first title in 40 years in 2015, downing an injury-hit Cleveland squad, and won a record 73 regular-season games the following campaign.

"For him the whole priority was his health, and I think he's in a good place right now", Curry said. "We know, trust me, we know".

James met with reporters after the game in the locker room, instead of going to the podium. One more playoff win, three fewer playoff loses, two fewer losses total. And many - though not all - of those people thought that was a sign of disrespect.

To start the second and fourth quarters, when Green typically anchors the Warriors' second unit, Kerr found his versatile forward in foul trouble.

Apple announced this subtle change to the system settings at its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose on Monday. While Siri was previously available on the Apple Watch, the assistant's ability to automatically show information was limited.

But after the game, he said he felt fine and just needed some food and wine to feel better. Curry is shooting 8-for-17 (47.1 percent) in the restricted area and off mid-range shots, in addition to going 32-for-80 behind the arc against Cleveland this time around, producing an effective field goal percentage of 59 percent.

"That's what they do", James said. Naturally, in a critical game, James played like the NBA's best player, finishing with a triple-double. "He missed some chippies - ones he's so accustomed to making".

Here's the thing: Curry was 1-for-7 in last year's series when the bigger, stronger James was isolated on him.

Thompson's lack of production has been particularly glaring, considering how big a role he played the past two seasons - averaging a double-double in each of the previous two Finals.

A number of analysts have been quick to point out the Cavaliers' lack of depth around James as a key reason for two straight shellackings.

Golden State won a league-best 67 games this season. "That's something that I can control, just being smarter with the ball". "But it's definitely great to see him over there and have him talking in the timeouts and out there leading us". "When they play with pace like that and make those advance passes and always make the extra pass, it's tough to guard".

"We had a turnover - it came from me - and then we had a miscue and the floods opened again", James said.

But it's going to be hard to move Thompson for two reasons: 1) His agent is Rich Paul, who is LeBron's guy; 2) Thompson is making $16.4 million next year, then $17.4 million, then $18.5 million.
