Tristan Thompson didn't appreciate a question about Stephen Curry. As a team, the Warriors shot a healthy 57 percent from the field and 15 of 36 from the three-point line as they led by 13 points at halftime before running away with the game in the fourth quarter where Curry took over.
And the Cavs will be on home turf for the next two games.
"At the end of the day, you control what you can control". In case you needed a reminder, just look back at what happened in June 2016.
CLEVELAND - A video that went viral on social media Monday showed previously unseen footage of the Cleveland Cavaliers bench at the end of regulation from Game 1 and LeBron James' emotional letdown upon learning from coach Ty Lue that the team had an unused timeout that could've been used when JR Smith lost track of the score.
Can the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets do the impossible?
We're a confident group. "I think we both blocked that whole year out of our memory", the two-time MVP quipped. Warriors: Golden State's 33-point third quarter was its first 30-point period since the third in Game 4 .
Next time Kendrick should just move his legs.
"It sucks to lose, that's for sure, but it definitely won't stop me from preparing to be better", James said. Even top-notch performances by the Cavs might not be enough to climb out of the hole and win the series.
Curry is averaging 31 points, 8.5 assists and 6.5 rebounds per game through two Finals contests.
Certain shots - particularly this almost 30-foot circus shot to beat the shot clock early in the fourth - will understandably garner the majority of the attention, as it provided Golden State enormous momentum as Cleveland was attempting to make one final push.
Row over finance minister prolongs Italy standoff
Savona had called the euro a "German cage" and has said Italy needs a plan to leave the single currency "if necessary". He said, though, that an election at the end of July would be "disruptive" for Italian seasonal workers in particular.
But Curry got a few easy ones and the game snowballed out of control.
Tuesday is the four-year anniversary of one of the most notable moments in San Antonio Spurs and LeBron James history. "But we know this is just getting started". "They're good. They're great, actually". And J.R. seemed to mouth, "I thought we were ahead". He provides a defensive dynamic that no other player on their roster can really give them. That was evident from the opening seconds of Game 2. The big man was a flawless 6-for-6 with 12 points in 18 minutes while the backup point guard was a ideal 5-for-5 for 10 points in 15 minutes. Plus, we're just over 24 hours out from tip-off of Game 3. It's as simple as that. "It's the most fun I've ever had in basketball", McGee said after Game 2. "He's got to keep taking his shots".
Lue, similarly, did not care to elaborate on his complaint that earned him a rare technical foul after James turned the ball over following a long outlet pass with 3:54 remaining in the third quarter when both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson appeared to make contact with his body.
Curry had a game-high 33 points in Sunday's win at Oracle Arena. Korver must knock down shots, especially from beyond the arc, if the Cavs want to do that. What we are witnessing is that even the best of the best need help. He does not need much of it.
Warriors back in NBA Finals again after test from Rockets
Unlike the Warriors' championship in 2015 or the Cavaliers' title in 2016, one team was very obviously better than the other. Despite the grueling series with the Rockets that went seven games, Warriors fans shouldn't worry about player's focus.
Surprise starter JaVale McGee ignited the home crowd by hammering down some alley-oops to give the Warriors an early lead.
