Warriors roll to 2-0 NBA Finals lead



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. If they win the next two Finals games in Cleveland and complete a 16-0 record in the playoffs, they'll be the first team to ever go flawless through a playoff run.

"I don't want to get into the "what we need to do better" right now. So that means a lot".

But the problem is, he's a liability against the Warriors in the Finals because having Love, Tristan Thompson and LeBron on the floor is simply too big of a lineup. However, he's too much of a tactician to bite on routine hesitation dribbles.

"I thought for the most part with the game plan that we had we tried to execute it as close as possible".

The drama began even before Sunday's game, when Kerr - who had not coached the Warriors' previous 11 games after the lingering symptoms from a botched back surgery nearly two years ago worsened two games into Golden State's first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers - strode into the interview room and declared he was coming back to the sideline in Game 2.

Although Durant still put up 33 points, Kerr - back on the bench for the first time since the Warriors' opening playoff series against the Trail Blazers after suffering discomfort stemming from back surgery - was most impressed by his contribution going back.

"I'm going to pull out the "Win one for the Gipper" speech", Kerr joked.

"It seems like it's personal for both of them". Cleveland Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving, seated from left, LeBron James, Richard Jefferson, Kyle Korver and J.R. Smith sit on the bench during the second half of Game 2 of basketball's NBA Finals against the Golden State Warri.

That wasn't "Truth Juice", as Paul Pierce called it, that gave the recently-retired forward the television muscles to announce on Sunday that Kevin Durant, and not LeBron James, is the best player in the world. Love could get hot.

All of a sudden it was a 10-point game, the crowd was in a frenzy, and Curry had his mojo back.

Durant scored from every corner of the court.

The games on October 1 and 3 will be played at the Stan Sheriff Center on the University of Hawaii campus.

While James has delivered - he had a triple-double on Sunday night in Game 2 - it hasn't been almost enough against the superstar-laden Golden State Warriors. They were in a similar situation a year ago to the Steph Curry-led Warriors. Yet Durant, Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson and the others kept the pressure on the Cavs.

James' averages: 27.0 points (50.0 percent from the field, 38.1 percent from deep), 11.7 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 1.0 block.

With Curry also making a triple-double, it was only the second time in play-off history that opposing players have achieved the feat in the same game - the first coming in 1970 by New York Knicks' Walt Frazier and Milwaukee Buck's Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

It didn't matter in the end.

Brown was originally expected to coach Game 2 but Kerr instead took the opportunity.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers are headed home in a familiar spot after the first two games of the NBA Finals. Curry's 10 first-quarter free throws equaled Paul Pierce for most in a Finals quarter. The Rubber Match Finals. I know the offense gets most of the attention but our players, they work at it, collectively, individually.
