Curry, Durant lead Warriors to 2-0 lead with 132-113 rout

"That's all the motivation we need", Green said. "We've got a great opportunity in front of us and we've got to seize it".

"I'm feeling better", Kerr told reporters after the Warriors eased to a 2-0 series lead against the defending champion Cavaliers in a repeat of the last two NBA Finals. So the ideal playoff mark wasn't overly lauded. "We had a lot of guys who played exceptionally well individually", Kerr said.

"We know this is far from over".

It was James who matched Durant's steals total but even in posting a triple-double (29 points, 14 assists, 11 rebounds) in Game 2 was, on the whole, a level below. After he committed eight turnovers in Game 1, James vowed to be better in Game 2, and he was, recording his eighth career triple-double in the NBA Finals, tying Magic Johnson for the most all time. Autograph seekers didn't get what they were looking for as the players walked right on by-but many said they were still happy to get a glimpse. "But it will mean something".

"Offensively, that's what the world sees but what I see is defensively, he's changing the game". "I did that. I'm excited, and it's good to be back".

It was only the second time in playoff history that rivals managed triple doubles in the same game, the other in 1970 by New York's Walt Frazier and Milwaukee's Lew Alcindor, later known as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

"I still have this bunker mentality when it comes to playing ball", he said. Kevin Love hit 12 of 23 shots and two 3-pointers, finishing with 27 points and seven rebounds and Kyrie Irving added 19.

In Game 2 the Cavs made the Warriors earn their points.

For comparison, Lakers coach Luke Walton was 39-4 as interim coach for Golden State when Kerr was forced to miss time last season as well.

He, too, shrugged off individual glory. Then there's the matchup featuring two of the best guards in the league with Curry and Irving. "But we're plain and simple going to have to play better".

"We're just trying to just stay in the moment".

But it's a very different Golden State team with the addition of All-Star Kevin Durant. head coach Tyronn Lue said Durant forces tough situations on defense. Thompson sank into a prolonged shooting slump that didn't end until Sunday evening, and it was no big deal. They're big fans and didn't get to see him play.

He guided the Warriors to a 132-113 win, Golden State's NBA-record 14th consecutive postseason win.

"We made runs - we cut it to four at one point and then they went on quick 9-0 run or 12-0 run". He is also the first player since Wilt Chamberlain in 1967 to average a triple-double over the first two Finals games.

"I thought for the most part with the game plan that we had we tried to execute it as close as possible".

Game 3 is set for Wednesday night in Cleveland, and needless to say it's a must-win game for the Cavs.
