Cavaliers vs. Warriors, Game 2

Golden States other Splash Brother has made far more brick sounds than swishes so far this postseason but its work on the defensive end that has stood out most and been a major factor in the Warriors leading Cleveland 1-0 in the NBA Finals after three straight series sweeps to open the postseason. "But I understand the road is very challenging, especially when you get to this level". "Just having a guy that has been here, done that before, has so much confidence in everything that we do and walks the walk, allows us to be ourselves and be confident in approaching game two". "And our ability to make sure that when we're mismatched in transition, that the only thing that matters is stopping the basketball and settling down in the half court, then we match up from there". "But the second half, I think we settled in, tried to play simple and defensively just tried to contest their shots", Durant said. We've been here. The guys that were here past year understand it's the hardest thing to do is to try to close out a series and we've got two more games to go. ". It was just great to be on the sidelines again. The line is a full basket higher than Game 1". Some people don't like physicality, and that's what it is. "And as I said, the intention is to go the rest of the series". They are obviously trying to get to the ball as much as possible and I expect them to play even more physical on Sunday. You need to have a better attitude - if it were that easy, we would all do it. "That's what Golden State does". They absolutely can leave Oakland with homecourt advantage, but it will take a massive performance from the teams' stars.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson is on a media blackout as well, noting fame is nice but, "It means nothing if you come out here and lay an egg". Curry was brilliant overall, and his co-star Kevin Durant arguably more so, finishing with 33 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, three steals and five blocks in the 132-113 victory. "We will play better".

Welcome back to "3 Shots" as we keep our eyes on Game 2 of the NBA Finals at the Oracle. His status for Sunday is uncertain. "And they have a lot of guys who can shoot the basketball, have a lot of guys who are great passers, so you got to be alert at all times". They went a flawless 12-0 against their three opponents, Portland, Utah, and San Antonio.

"Playing against the Warriors, you can't just play hard". It's like a boxing match. You will be seeing that video a lot.

Under is 9-1-2 in the last 12 meetings in Golden State.

"Going over the edge isn't going to win me a championship", he said. His body language says something else.

And who goes to a game alone without buying anything or parking a auto first?

Cavaliers reserve Richard Jefferson compares it to a boxing bout, with the Cavs rising from a knockdown. "We just have to execute it and not panic".

Durant played well in his first Finals trip but didn't have the help he has now with a two-time MVP in Curry, one of the league's best two-way players in Thompson and a do-it-all demon like Green. The Warriors went 39-4 under Luke Walton.

"That's definitely a focus, not only prepare for theirs, try to meet and exceed it", Green said. "That's ultimately what showed up on the tape and what Ty continues to preach to us".
