Stephen Curry's Incredible 3-Point Shooting Leads Warriors to Game 2 Win

Adjust Comment Print

The Cavaliers have a lot of questions to answer after dropping Game 2 of the NBA Finals 122-103 as the Warriors took control of the series as it heads to Cleveland.

"Home-court advantage can be a real thing", said Kevin Love, whose 22 points and 10 rebounds were the Cavs' chief means of Game 2 support for James' 29-point, 13-assist, 9-rebound effort.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson, playing despite a left ankle injury in the opener, says Golden State has a strong focus knowing the Cavaliers rallied from 2-0 down to beat Boston in the Eastern Conference finals.

"To be on top of that 3-point list is pretty special", Curry said. "But at the end of the day, it's all about trying to get a win and doing whatever you can to make that happen". The Warriors are 4.5-point sportsbook favorites in the latest odds for Game 3, with the over-under for total points scored set at 216.5.

"I got to the bench, first thing that came to my mind I was like, OK, I was calling a timeout", he said.

"He was tremendous", Warriors coach Steve Kerr was quoted as saying by ESPN. LeBron was once "like a mentor" to Curry, but as Steph's game improved, coinciding with the Warriors' rise, he "challenged LeBron's status". "I don't think so", Lue said. 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.

Asked if the Cavs felt defenseless guarding Curry, Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson barked: "No. F-. No".

"I'm always a person the fans like to talk to and heckle", Smith said. They terrified the Warriors for much of the first game behind LeBron James's 51 points, turning their misses into second shots with 19 offensive rebounds, compared to the Warriors' four.

While Curry may be one of the most popular players in the National Basketball Association, his quick rise in the league has reportedly rubbed some of his peers the wrong way, most notably LeBron James. "But we know this is just getting started".

Four teams - count 'em, four - have rallied from 0-2 Finals deficits to win the championship trophy. "They know how hard it's going to be in Cleveland". "Some of those easy layups and dunks, we need to communicate better, watch film and figure out how we can get everyone on the same page".

According to the report, Thompson said the root of this disdain for Curry came from his leapfrogging so many players so quickly in the NBA's elite and receiving adoration for it. Regardless, the Cavs need to be better at embracing the man-to-man challenge and, as part of it, fighting through Golden State's assortment of *illegal* screens.
