Will Home Court Help the Cavaliers Turn the NBA Finals Around?

Will Home Court Help the Cavaliers Turn the NBA Finals Around?

The Warriors, seeking their 3rd crown in 4 seasons, could complete a sweep in the best-of-7 showdown with road wins on Wednesday, June 6, and Friday, June 8, after taking a 2-0 edge with a 122-103 home triumph Sunday, June 3.

"Tough shot taker, tough shot maker", said Warriors forward Draymond Green.

"The first one was, we played a game in NY and I scored 54 points", he recalled. "We're going to need that going out on the road". Although they did that, not stunning the National Basketball Association world and taking a 1-0 series lead Thursday may be one thing that they will always regret.

Halfway through the fourth quarter, the Cavs switched Kevin Love onto Curry, only for the latter to sink an off-balance 28-footer as the shot clock hit the buzzer, despite having briefly lost the ball as he tried to dribble himself free of Love. "You definitely notice the effect that it has on the opposing team".

"We feed off our crowd". Korver and the plays used to get him open could exhaust Klay's legs, especially with an already injured ankle.

"So at some point, when this is all said and done, I hope to kind of just sit back and really truly appreciate, from start to finish, all that went into it". "Being the elder statesman here and seeing what has all gone into being on this stage every single year - when it comes to the guys that I get to suit up with every single night, from Bob Myers down to the coaching staff to the ownership - it's just a transformation that I got to see firsthand and all the details that went into it".

Curry's ability to shake free was far from the only thing that explained Golden State's victory.

"I'm trying to call screens for [Draymond Green] while he's on LeBron [James] and he can't hear me", McGee said. "We're doing some good things, but it's not translating into Ws so we've got to figure it out". He's played in all 100 postseason games they've played since 2013, setting the franchise-record for playoff games played during this stretch. "But that shouldn't give us any comfort. We should still be uncomfortable". He went off for 16 points in the frame and did not miss from downtown. "This is the last team in the world you want to relax against". But the Cavs need to do a much better job of eliminating easy scoring opportunities from the rest of the Warriors' team to keep themselves alive any longer.

"We came out, we fought".

Curry was in the midst of a record performance, hitting nine 3-pointers en route to 33 points and a second straight big game that has him pegged as the early NBA Finals MVP favorite.

Despite the offensive fireworks, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said it was an improved defensive effort that led to the win. "It's nothing to feel happy about being up 2-0", Thompson said.

All amusing, but it's a little sad to see a guy's career come down to th- nah I'm kidding.

James said he hesitated on calling a timeout when Smith was dribbling away from the basket because he wasn't totally sure the Cavs had one and it could've led to a technical foul. Never was that more apparent than in Sunday's Game 2 rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
