LeBron's brilliance not enough in Game 2 loss to Warriors

LeBron's brilliance not enough in Game 2 loss to Warriors

Alexa is ready to help you out.

On Thursday, Kevin Durant's 38 points guided the Warriors past LeBron James and the visiting Cavs by a comfortable 113-91 margin.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant shoots against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the first half of Game 2 of basketball's NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Sunday, June 4, 2017.

"It's been a great run, but none of that matters unless we can finish the job", said the Warriors' head coach, Steve Kerr.

Steph Curry also had a good night. Curry battled the effects of a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee, suffered during the first round of the playoffs and felt through the NBA Finals. First and foremost, then make sure Golden State's sharpshooters have a hand in their face.

For all the challenges presented to them this season, the Warriors are now poised to avenge their loss to the Cavaliers in last year's Finals and Durant is three wins away from his first title and some validation of his move from OKC.

Four-time NBA MVP LeBron James, in his seventh straight finals, has a remarkable run of having won at least one game on the road in 29 straight post-season series.

"If we play that game in Cleveland, we're not winning".

Just as intriguing is game 2 performance, where underdogs flip the record and have gone 16-9-1 with 12 outright upsets.




The best-of-seven series now shifts to Cleveland for two games, with Game 3 Wednesday.

"They are a high-powered offensive team", James said.

But the Warriors made only three of their 13 3-point attempts in the half.

"We can't give up 23 points off our turnovers". Fully healthy and fresh from more than a week off, Curry poured in 28 points, drilled six 3-pointers and dished 10 assists. And just for good measure, Klay Thompson chose to wake up, adding 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting. They were 18-of-43 from long distance in Game 2. Numerous blowouts throughout the playoffs have allowed the public to beat up on the books, but game 1 wasn't one of them. No other National Football League team has played in more than three Super Bowls or won more than two in that same span.

For Cleveland, it's LeBron James, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Kyrie Irving and J.R. Smith. "And as I told you guys, when I stepped aside in Portland, I don't know what happened".

However, the team always maintained that the best version of the Warriors was one with coach Kerr at the helm. Along with his usual stifling defense, Draymond Green chipped in nine points and 11 rebounds and Zaza got in on the action as well, hitting four of his five shots for eight points.

"I know they are watching film, and something for them is to keep me off the glass".

"We can't let Durant get easy baskets like that", Lue said as his team practiced at Warriors headquarters amid a media frenzy.
