Record-breaking Curry leads Warriors to 2-0 lead

  • Stephen Curry makes NBA Finals-record nine 3-pointers as Warriors roll past Cleveland

Learn from how one got away in 2016. Learn from what cost San Antonio a title in 2013, too.

LeBron James may be at the door. And three years ago, when the Warriors won their first title, Curry was their leading scorer, at 26 points per game, but he was somewhat a victim of his own standards.

The Warriors are now up, 2-0, on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. They somehow had to be better in Game 2 than they were in Game 1. For LeBron James, he even called it one of the most hard losses of his career and said he lost sleep over it.

It's not like we haven't seen this before, just not this time of year. If they go down 3-0, series over. He connected on his eighth, and then his record-breaking ninth 3-pointer a couple minutes later, but by then the game was already over. "It was too easy for them".

And then Warriors Coach Steve Kerr dropped the mic.

Afterward, the defending champs could be heard loudly celebrating inside their locker room, perhaps a warmup for a bigger party to come. The Celtics had him and the Heat down 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals in 2012, and couldn't finish.

This past week, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors faced off in Game 1 and Game 2 of 2018 NBA Finals. This is not the same Golden State team (Kevin Durant helps).

OAKLAND -The Cleveland Cavaliers have been a different team at home this year in the playoffs. But the Warriors would be foolish to not remember that series, not to remember the ultimate cautionary tale. Steph, Kevin, Klay, our scorers, they take the majority of the load, right?

"When you're down like this, in a deficit like this versus a team like this, there's no good feeling", James said following practice Tuesday. Now we've got to come back and do the same thing'. "So just being locked in on the defensive side of the ball from the jump ball, it will pay dividends for us going into Cleveland".

That's the news from a latest report by Bloomberg who have revealed this new phablet will get its big reveal in August. Samsung Galaxy A6 features a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED display with the resolution of 720 x 1480, an aspect ratio of 18:9.

This series at times has been the Cavaliers versus the cavalier.

James, a three-time NBA champion who has been to the NBA Finals nine times (with eight consecutive trips since 2010-2011), has now scored 1,327 total points in his Finals career.

"End of the game, we all knew we had a timeout left", Lue said. Golden State never trailed. They adjusted nicely against James after his 51-point barrage in Game 1.

Game 3 - which will be played Wednesday in Cleveland - is the series' pivotal game.

"I mean, it sucks to lose", James said.

The Warriors welcome that.

And while the Cavaliers insisted that they weren't rattled by those Curry bombs - James said they know it's his business to make shots, so they can't be deflated when he does - Green said he knows that isn't true.

The formula worked on Sunday. "I just took the shot". He's shot worse than 50 percent from the field just once in the last 12 games. McGee made one shot from about 6 feet; his other eight attempts from the floor have basically been dunks.

Doing the same against this Golden State team, however, will be a much taller task, but that's not to say the Cavs won't be able to hold serve on their homecourt.
