Record-breaking Curry puts Warriors 2-0 up

Kevin Durant Got Lucky the Warriors Won Because He Played Poorly and Gave Up the JR Smith Rebound Kevin Durant Got Lucky the Warriors Won Because He Played Poorly and Gave Up the JR Smith Rebound

Watching Smith take matters into his own hands undid all the hard work Cleveland put in throughout Game 1 of the Finals.

J.R. Smith was tormented by the Golden State crowd, which chanted "M-V-P".

"The NBA has to do what they've got to do in terms of fining", said Thompson. Yet Thompson did receive some kind words from Smith. A Golden State defense that was uncharacteristically undisciplined in Game 1 made better decisions in response, particularly from the help side.

For his second act, the Cleveland superstar went with a sportier look, wearing a hooded shirt under his suit coat, and opting for white sneakers with red socks (albeit with the one striped sock again), instead of boots with gray socks.

Despite double-digit contributions from three other starters and reasonable shooting percentages throughout most of the game, the supporting cast for the Cavaliers could not measure up to the intensity brought by the reigning world champions. Indeed, the Cavs didn't make a shot for nearly five and a half minutes in the second quarter.

That confrontation would end with Thompson shoving the ball into Green's face and players began to separate the two.

Kevin Durant found his steady stroke to score 26 points to go with nine rebounds and seven assists while also handling a load of the defensive assignment against LeBron James.

"Klay is just a physical specimen", Warriors coach Steve Kerr told the Mercury News on Friday. After Game 2 Tyronn Lue said as much, specifically with regard to Green. As that enforcer for our team and Draymond for his team, I think it is what it is.

Kevin Durant came into Sunday night having shot better than 50 percent from the floor in only one of his past six games. The high ankle sprain he suffered midway through the first quarter has swelled, bruised and stiffened considerably in the past two days.

Warriors: Thompson played in his franchise-record 100th postseason game. "To be good at those parts of the game, then you don't let the luck creep in".

Meanwhile, despite lacking Andre Iguodala, the Warriors' supporting cast was what you'd expect from such a disciplined squad. In the meantime, Kerr says Iguodala had even entered the huddle and given suggestions.

"He has gotten better gradually, but there's no way of knowing for sure at this point", Kerr said. "He's been a great mentor for the younger guys in this group the last few years". It remains to be seen how effective he can be on the court.
