Warriors beat Cavaliers in Game 2 of National Basketball Association finals

Their leader and reigning NBA Coach of the Year assuming his usual courtside seat, Curry received a special request from Kerr: "to play with passion and play with joy", Curry shared. "He's just a man that we really, really respect and hope that he keeps on doing it". "We've got a great opportunity in front of us and we've got to seize it". "That's what he does".

There are many things to examine within the first two games of this series, and a good number of words will be devoted to it.

He had important decisions to make, too, such as what to do when Draymond Green picked up his third foul 10 seconds into the second quarter.

He knows celebrating this win won't mean a thing if the Warriors end up losing the finals.

Golden State improved to 14-0 this postseason and is trying to become the first group to go unbeaten all the way to a title.

He had a triple-double by the third quarter and finished with 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists. Kevin Love had 27 points and Kyrie Irving 19.

LeBron James made a record-equalling eighth play-off triple-double.

Golden State, which committed just four turnovers in Game 1, had eight in the first quarter alone but nonetheless managed to build as much as a 10-point advantage in the period. He shot 3-of-16 from the field, including 0-of-5 from the perimeter en route to a six-point performance.

Speaking shortly before Game Two against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Kerr said he was feeling somewhat better.

The Warriors' coach, who has battled awful back issues over the last two years, was shut down early in the postseason, letting Mike Brown take over the head-coaching duties in games.

"I'm just seeing a lot of bodies", Irving said. It's not the Warriors at their best, as they all acknowledged after the game, but it's more than most teams can handle. Golden State is going to be trying to end this early, and the star Warriors who were around a year ago badly want revenge. He hadn't shot well in the Finals, well, ever, having been under 35 percent his past four Finals games dating to previous year. So yeah, a double dribble, though not the sort that usually gets called, but it's hard to fault James for selling out and leaving his feet, which gave Curry the space he needed to drive past. "So I think that's a luxury we have with KD".

Thompson was shooting just 36.6 percent in the playoffs coming into Game 2 and 33.8 from 3-point range after leading all National Basketball Association players in 3-pointers in last year's playoffs and shooting 42.1 percent from distance while doing it. By halftime he had 18 points.

It didn't matter in the end. We love his voice.

"They won two games", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said, "now we've got to go home and regroup".

Right now all that matters is Game 3 on Wednesday. Thompson played in his 78th postseason game to pass Jeff Mullins for most in franchise history. With him playing, their offensive rating plummets to 100.9 and their turnover ratio jumps to 15.0.

" A Steph Curry triple-double, highlighted by a masterful dribbling exhibition that spun around LeBron James before he scooped in a layup over his sledgehammer block". Totals 46-89 22-24 132.

Love gave the Cavs a needed second offensive threat with 27 points in Game 2; 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. Rebounds - C 41 (James 11), GS 53 (Durant 13).

Before the game started, as Kerr fist-bumped his players, the Cavaliers' LeBron James stood nearby and leaned over to tap Kerr on the shoulder.
