Golden State Warriors' Steve Kerr returns to coach Game 2

"We've got a great opportunity in front of us and we've got to seize it."The Warriors, who welcomed back coach Steve Kerr after he missed 11 games with health issues following 2015 back surgery, grabbed a 2-0 edge in the best-of-seven series, which shifts to Cleveland for games three and four on Wednesday and Friday". We've been here. The guys that were here previous year understand it's the hardest thing to do is to try to close out a series and we've got two more games to go. Along with 32 points, he added 10 rebounds and 11 assists. But perhaps the best play of the game so far goes to Stephen Curry, who put LeBron James in a blender en route to scoring in the third quarter. He said before the game: "The intention is to coach tonight and the rest of the series".

The Cavaliers were in the same position last season, dropping the first two games of the series in Golden State.

Golden State Warriors center JaVale McGee (1) dunks against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the first half of Game 2 of basketball's NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Sunday, June 4, 2017. He looks more like a two-time MVP than the hobbled player he was in last year's Finals.

James' points came on 12-for-18 shooting for the Cavaliers, who shot 45 percent from the field but just 27.6 percent (8-for-29) from 3-point range. All four Warriors All-Stars were clicking simultaneously and the results were devastating, with Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue pulling the plug while facing a 21-point deficit with nearly four minutes remaining. Coming to a tough environment, we knew it was going to be tough, but they won the first two games. And you got to expect them to play, obviously, better at home. They went to a smaller lineup that contributed to Golden State committing 20 turnovers a game after tying a Finals record with four.

"Going over the edge isn't going to win me a championship", he explained.

It appears that the Cavaliers are frustrated because they just couldn't match the Warriors in these two encounters, and to be honest at some point of this game the home team had a little bit of protection by the officials.

"That's what they do", James said. But late in the second quarter, he seemed to find himself. "That's what Golden State does".

And by the way, J.R. Smith has got to start making some plays. We saw what happened previous year. "Implore them to win it for me because it's not important for them to win it for themselves".
