Warriors' Steve Kerr returns to the bench to coach Game 2

He said before the game: "The intention is to coach tonight and the rest of the series". He hadn't reached double figures in points or rebounds this year in the first two games combined. They had eight in the first quarter and Curry finished the first half with six.

Curry had a triple-double with 32 points (on 17 shots), 11 assists and 10 rebounds. He looks more like a two-time MVP than the hobbled player he was in last year's Finals.

After being in a frigid 37-percent shooting funk for most of the postseason, Thompson warmed up with 22 points on 8-of-12 from the field.

That's what I was wondering after watching the Cleveland Cavaliers lose, 132-113, to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday night. Andre Iguodala, Durant and Thompson all had turnovers in the first two minutes and there was a brief hint of a threat the Cavs could get back in it. Coming to a tough environment, we knew it was going to be tough, but they won the first two games.

Steph also relieved the epic play. Kevin Love had 27 points and Kyrie Irving 19. They split the two games at home before reeling off three straight wins to become the fourth team to win the title after losing the first two games.

To start second Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue once again went to a lineup with Kyrie Irving on the floor but no LeBron or Love, and without LeBron they were a quick -9. We had a lot of guys who played exceptionally well individually, and we played with great energy. And you got to expect them to play, obviously, better at home. The Cavaliers went on to win the series in seven games.

What was so discouraging for the Cavs is that they played better in Game 2 but the result didn't really change. Going into halftime, the Cavs were down by five and kept things close in the second half.

Curry was upset by his eight turnovers as Cleveland vowed to put more pressure on the ball and keep Durant from driving and dunking untouched as he did so many times in Game 1.

"You act like I'm just this troubled guy who can't control myself", the All-Star forward said, per Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated.

At the end of the third quarter, Golden State was leading 102-88.

Love gave the Cavs a needed second offensive threat with 27 points but against a team filled with a pair of former MVPs in Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, two other 2017 All-Stars in Draymond Green and Klay Thompson and several role players who have made key contributions, it wasn't been almost enough.

"That's what they do", James said.
