LeBron James had another tremendous performance in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, but once again it was all for naught as the Golden State Warriors won easily, 122-103, to take a 2-0 lead in the series. Hey, the Cavs got them right where they want them heading into Game 3 on Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena.
LeBron James received fresh criticism after a video went viral showing the Cavaliers bench just after the devastating final seconds of regulation in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
Curry had the shot of the night with 7:54 to play, making an off-balance swish from several feet behind the three-point arc over Love as the shot clock wound down, then backpedalled in pure joy. "But he's going to make tough shots, that's what he does".
"I'm over the referee s--", he said. "That was kind of like a dagger shot".
Curry hit 11 of 26 shots in all, including nine of 17 from 3-point range.
Cleveland will need to score plenty of points in order to beat the juggernaut Warriors' in one game this series, let alone four. "Keep the crowd into it". At age 33, James is averaging 34.6 points per game in the playoffs, only eclipsed by his 35.3 PPG in the '08-'09 postseason. "That's what he does", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Luesaid.
The Warriors took just 11 midrange 2-pointers, the shot that is the scourge of modern National Basketball Association offense. "I'm in the NBA Finals, looking for a championship". The Cavs need someone other than James to be efficient offensively, and Hill did his best to produce in the scoring column and help his team in Game 2. But they couldn't contain Curry and the rest of the Warriors for extended stretches. Even if he should, James isn't going to throw his teammates under the bus. He had been taking antibiotics and using drops after being poked in the eye by Draymond Green in the first half Thursday. Fans couldn't wait to bury him in memes.
He could of course stay with the Cavs although most expect him to move on for pastures new.
It's not like the Warriors have lost games without their former Finals MVP, but they have definitely missed Igoudala. And that's what Golden State wants. They can go even smaller, and force them into the ultimate small-ball game with LeBron James as the team's center.
You just know that the Cavaliers would've been lamenting on their missed chances in Game 1 and they just didn't come out focused in Game 2 which cost them.
Shaun Livingston and JaVale McGee were fantastic for the Warriors, combining to go nine for nine from the floor with 22 points and seven rebounds. His first points - the first for Cleveland - came on a goaltend by McGee. Until that momentum was squandered in a late-game mental blunder by Cleveland's J.R. Smith.
Warriors: Thompson played in his franchise-record 100th postseason game. In the NBA's small ball era where versatile, lengthy players are more valuable than big men, the Hampton 5 allows the Warriors to play a style that reflects the current iteration of the league while giving them a talented group.
For Cleveland, they look to switch superstar LeBron James on Steph Curry nearly every possession and visa versa for Golden State. Overall, the Cavs played a very good game in the opener. and they weren't overwhelmed until the fourth quarter in Game 2.
