Alexa burns Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors

The Cleveland Cavaliers need to improve their physicality in order to win Game 2. Game 1 was the feel-out for us, and they definitely took advantage of all our miscues. "He just continues to keep shooting and stay aggressive on both ends of the floor", Durant said on Saturday during his media availability.

Despite this being the third straight time these teams have played in the NBA Finals, we knew things would be different with Kevin Durant in store. "And we get an opportunity to get a couple days to see what they did and see what we did wrong and how we can be better in Game 2".

The Warriors guard scored only six points, and went a measly three of 16 overall in 36 minutes while missing all five from behind the arc. "We will have to help out, and knock some shots down from the perimeter, especially me".

Expect a closer game tonight, but don't be surprised if Golden State wins big again, they're collective, confident and clicking when it counts.

LeBron James will look to give the Warriors a little taste of their own medicine in Game 2, from USA Today. "It doesn't make a difference on what jersey you wear".

Because we have the technology in the form of Amazon's Alexa, this best-of-seven series simply can not be a clean sweep by the Warriors. That dropped to 94.8 in last year's seven-game classic.

Cleveland will try to disrupt 3-point sharpshooters Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and deny slam dunks to Durant, who seeks his first title after moving from Oklahoma City last July. With J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson combining for just a single field goal among the starters and Cleveland's bench shooting a combined 6-for-24 from the field - with Richard Jefferson accounting for half of those field goals.

"Trash. Trash", is how Thompson defined his Game 1. So it's hard for me to even tell my teammates, hey, don't listen to it, because I don't even get involved in it. "But I know if we put in the same defensive effort collectively, we will be really tough to beat", a confident Thompson said. But I also had some where I got caught up in the air, trying to make some skip passes, and they were able to pick them off.

While Kevin Love did a good job competing despite his shot not falling, he needs to be much better in Game 2.
