Cavs not looking to slow down pace of Finals with Warriors

They were down 0-2 every year, right?

Not many National Basketball Association teams rally from being down 2-0. There's been a thousand conversations about that.

James, who has expressed a desire to own a team one day, cited the New York Yankees and Dallas Cowboys in the 1990s as examples of teams that spent for success.

"We know in that situation to get that man the rock", Thompson said. J.R. Smith has not scored a single point after the first two minutes of Game 1. But it's not just Korver.

Irving had the type of performance the Cavs have needed from him, the type he hadn't yet had in the Finals.

The Cavs are convinced if they can make that first dent in the Warriors facade, the path to a competitive series will be wide open.

Friday night in Cleveland (9 p.m. ET, ABC) both teams will have an unprecedented goal in mind. Job's not done. Close-out games are always the toughest. We obviously know how hard it is to win a championship, what all goes into it and how important each game is.

Believable in that it's Smith and he's built a career on being an emotional, sometimes impulsive player who at times shoots just well enough to secure his place in the league and in an unrelated note, refused to wear a shirt after the Cavs won the title a year ago. It was not pleasant viewing.

"I mean, who am I to say if it's fair or not?" We have a better handle of how you have to approach things.




"It just looks like he understands this is his moment, this is his time", Kerr said. "That would be helpful".

Still, if it's possible to stack Cleveland's roster with enough firepower to challenge Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Co., it sounds like LeBron James is completely on board.

Based on those numbers, it wouldn't be wild to assume that guarding Durant, as well as being responsible for carrying the Cavs offensive load, has been taking a toll on James, and affecting him at the end of games. The last time the Warriors lost with Kevin Durant healthy was February 13 in Denver, prior to the All-Star break. I'm averaging a triple double in the Finals.

"I thought fatigue was an issue because the game was so hard-fought", Kerr said.

Zaza Pachulia's biggest moment to date in these playoffs came when he was roundly accused of purposefully sticking his foot under an airborne Kawhi Leonard.

But through two games of the Finals, Pachulia has quietly been a tremendous force for the Warriors negating Tristan Thompson for the most part throughout the first two games.

"We talked about it since The Finals last year that the last season was a very unique year, for a lot of different reasons, and we learned a lot", Curry said.

Durant's team mates were singing his praises after the game and said there was no doubt in their minds whose hands the ball should be in with the game's result hanging in the balance.
