Warriors dominate Cavs to take 2-0 lead in NBA Finals

Warriors dominate Cavs to take 2-0 lead in NBA Finals

After posting just four turnovers in Game 1, the Warriors committed 20 such mistakes, due in large part to the Cavs' tenacity. The Warriors hold a 2-0 lead in the Finals. "And we forced them to 20 turnovers", James said, starting out sounding hopeful before the downer entered his voice.

The Warriors' coach, who has battled awful back issues over the last two years, was shut down early in the postseason, letting Mike Brown take over the head-coaching duties in games. "And they still beat us pretty good". "When you've got great teammates like I do, who allow me to play with my emotions and allow me to be emotional when I'm talking to them - to use my emotions to the better for us, it's easy".

Warriors general manager Bob Myers sat with Green as they helplessly watched Cleveland win Game 5 on their way to the championship, and thinks the 27-year-old is now "confining his intensity in a more narrow lane".

Golden State had won a record 73 regular-season games a year ago and led 2-0 only for Cleveland to make the greatest comeback in NBA Finals history and swipe the title.

Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr announced about an hour before Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night that he not only was returning to the bench for the game, but also, he hoped, for the rest of the best-of-seven series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. "As a shooter, you have to".

No player in league history has posted across-the-board numbers that were equal to, much less better than, those in a Finals game.

All this while facing a team of nearly equal brilliance led by James, who had that look of menace and "I've got this" on his face most of the night and finished with 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists - tying Magic Johnson's record of eight National Basketball Association final triple-doubles.

But even though he is the best on the planet, he is one guy.

The Cavs trailed by just three points at the half, and after a Kevin Love 3-pointer early in the third quarter, it was still just a five-point game.

"They're going keep to coming, man", Curry said. "There is no comparison even though we're down 0-2 going back home". "He missed some chippies - ones he's so accustomed to making".

Pekka Rinne makes save of the year candidate in Game 4
Nashville's Calle Jarnkrok was the first to get the puck past Matt Murray , scoring 5:09 into the first period . Crosby had another breakaway almost midway through the period, and Rinne stopped him not once, but twice.


Here's the thing: Curry was 1-for-7 in last year's series when the bigger, stronger James was isolated on him. He attended the pregame news conference Sunday and said he had not yet told his players that he would be back coaching, though said they knew in recent days that he was improving.

"Both of them, to me, it seemed like it's personal for both of them".

17 - Percentage from three for the non-Big 3 (James, Irving, Love) members of the Cavs during the competitive portion of the game.

The Warriors have done a great job limiting Kyrie Irving, who is shooting 40% from the field in the Finals, and they have made it clear they don't want the Irving-James combo beating them. "Klay guards so many people out there and he has such a responsibility with Kyrie (Irving) and switching on LeBron, and I thought he was fantastic".

The Cavs began to turn things around last year after being outscored by 48 points in the first two losses in Oakland - seven more than this year.

But he didn't get it off. Durant rose with those tarantula arms and ate Love's hook shot, palming the ball and starting a fastbreak the other way.
