LeBron, Cavs need to figure things out

LeBron, Cavs need to figure things out

The Warriors simply managed to play with superb sharpness and delightful dexterity to again put the lights out on the Cavaliers at the Oracle on Monday. Curry listened and had a spectacular night to lead Golden State to a 2-0 NBA Finals advantage with Sunday's 132-113 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

David West came to set a screen on LeBron, and James wisely elected to fight over the screen instead of going underneath it and allowing Durant an easy look from deep.

All James wanted to think about was getting some food and wine on the flight home. Curry had a triple-double, with 32 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists, including this no-looker to Shaun Livingston. "I thought for the most part with the game plan that we had we tried to execute it as close as possible", James admitted. Durant leads all players with 71 points the first two games - six more than the player he replaced in the lineup, Harrison Barnes, scored in seven games a year ago. "And we forced them to 20 turnovers, and they still beat us pretty good, so we got to be much better, too".

He was even seen huffing and puffing as he went to the bench at one point in the third quarter. "We're going to go home, watch the film, see ways we can be better, see if we can be a lot better defensively and offensively".

How do the Cavs stem the tide?

After giving up 38 points to Durant in Game 1, the Cavaliers had to pay more attention to stopping him when he had the ball, which meant they had to cheat off Thompson and Curry a little bit. It's not hyperbole that has folks comparing them to the best teams in National Basketball Association history and wondering what sort of dynasty this team could form moving forward with this talented, unselfish core able to be secured in place for years to come.

"I'm not going to take a step back", Kevin Durant said.

"There's an old saying, 'You don't miss the water 'til the well runs dry, '" the 80-year-old Attles said after receiving the Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement Award.

LeBron James is not dwelling in the pain of the past anymore and says the team will focus on how they could do better in game 3 of the NBA Finals against rivals Golden State Warriors.

"Well, it's been a great run but none of that matters unless we can finish the job with this series", Kerr said.

Wait, they can get better?

The drama began even before Sunday's game, when Kerr - who had not coached the Warriors' previous 11 games after the lingering symptoms from a botched back surgery nearly two years ago worsened two games into Golden State's first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers - strode into the interview room and declared he was coming back to the sideline in Game 2. But given what happened last season when the trophy got wrenched from their grasp, they're not resting on their laurels.

Reporter: Well, yeah, I know, that's what I'm saying. "This is the same thing that happened past year", the source pointed out.

As much as a sweep represents the unthinkable for ABC, the Warriors look like they may be the most dominant team since the 1965-'66 Celtics, the 1987-'88 Lakers or those Jordan-era Bulls. Coach Kerr was back in his usua court-side seat as acting head coach Mike Brown went back to his assistant role. It wound up being a devastating weapon for the Warriors, who once again blew a seemingly competitive game open in the second half and left everyone watching wondering when, or if, Cleveland will find a way to counteract what Golden State is doing. Maybe LeBron, Irving playing his A-game and the Cleveland crowd would be enough for them to manage three wins. Game 2 drew an average minute audience of 435,800 viewers, 1,774,600 unique viewers and 71,030,300 total minutes streamed - all records for an NBA Finals Game 2.

"I still have this bunker mentality when it comes to playing ball", he said. Our fans are looking forward to it.

We should give Curry his due.
