Curry caught fire during Game 2 Sunday, leading the Warriors to a 122-103 win over Cleveland, repeatedly tossing in deep 3-point shots, in bunches, every time Cleveland tried to make a push. Well, this postseason they've decreased that by three and during their last eight games (the entire Eastern Conference Finals and Finals Game 1) they've decreased it by five.

Overall, the Cavs played a very good game in the opener. and they weren't overwhelmed until the fourth quarter in Game 2.

The Cavs can't seem to stop the Warriors when it really matters.

Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 boards for the cold-shooting Cavs, who will now try to gain some momentum back home.

LeBron James took some fashion-police heat for his attire before Game 1 of the NBA Finals, rocking an expensive suit with shorts while accenting the look with boots and shin-high socks, only one of which was marked with stripes. Draymond Green played 79 (he was suspended one game in 2016), Shaun Livingston has played 77, Andre Iguodala has been in 74 and Stephen Curry made it into 68. Kevin Durant shot 10-14 from the field. For Cleveland, they look to switch superstar LeBron James on Steph Curry nearly every possession and visa versa for Golden State. Coming off a historic 51-point performance in Game 1, James played all but four minutes of the game but couldn't carry his team to victory. He has been the sole driving force offensively for the Cavaliers in the first two games that has helped keep his team in the position to challenge against Golden State's talented roster. It was a solid game.

Calderon would instead finish the season with Atlanta, which lost in the first round of the playoffs, before signing with the Cavaliers last July.


They say that time heals all wounds. "Unfortunately, I didn't. I fouled him", Smith said Saturday.

Steph Curry also expressed his optimism when asked about Thompson's condition.

Smith had a rough night, scoring five points on 2-of-9 shooting in 31 generally dismal minutes.

Game 3 is Wednesday night in Cleveland. The Warriors, after all, are turning out to be one of the best teams ever assembled in the history of the National Basketball Association.

Here is the replay where you can see just how ideal the pass was.
