Golden State Warriors Looking Ahead to Busy Off-Season


For the second straight year, the Cavaliers returned to Quicken Loans Arena in an 0-2 hole against the Warriors in the NBA Finals.

While the contributions of both LeBron James and Kevin Love are equally vital to the success of the Cavaliers, Irving's performances in the games ahead will likely dictate if another comeback like the one past year is in the cards.

But two things still offer some hope for the Cavaliers. Players know that they can bait refs into making bad calls and the refs need to open their damn eyes and make calls based on their training, not their anxiety.

Even though Korver finally got some shots to drop in Game 2, he knows he needs to play even better in Game 3.

Klay shook off his postseason-long funk and finished with 22 points in the Dubs' 132-113 victory. But the Cavs have made clear that if they're going down, they're going down their way. He also delivered in performance, averaging over six points per game.

"It's going to be tough to guard (Durant) one-on-one anyway, so having LeBron off the ball where he's able to get some steals and roam a little bit and play free safety, it was good for us", Lue said.

"We came back and won Game 4 in a great effort and had them right where we wanted them, but I think Game 3 gave them that confidence, and obviously everything changed in Game 5". My bet is that they probably don't want to repeat that trend, or even give themselves a chance of doing so. "There is a lot of work for us left to do".

When debating best team ever, today's world of perspiring arts sometimes gets caught up in the moment. "We understand who we are and we stay the course". Smith has scored just three points in two games on 1-of-6 shooting. "The force that they are going bring and we have stand up to that".

The Warriors' 132-113 victory on Sunday drew an average of 20.1 million viewers, up 13 percent from Game 2 past year and the most for a Game 2 since Chicago and Utah met in 1998.

"Our team overall, I just think that we all have to play better, and we will", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. "You never want to be down 2-0 in a series against anybody". Harrison Barnes, the player Durant replaced in the Warriors' lineup, scored 65 for the whole series. "Just keep asserting yourself", James said.

They've also elevated to a plus-1000 (risking $1 to win $10) underdog in the series to Golden State's price of minus-2000 (risking $20 to win $1).

"We can learn that how thin the line is from success and failure", Curry said. While James has thrived so far and had 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists to tie Magic Johnson's record with his eighth career Finals triple-double Sunday, he hasn't gotten almost enough help. And Kevin Love added 27 points in 30 minutes.

Led by two-times reigning MVP Stephen Curry and four-times scoring champion Kevin Durant, the Warriors have an embarrassment of riches and find ways to score regardless of the pace of any particular game.

Durant and Green have set the tone all season on the defensive end, establishing an intensity and toughness - and the rest of the Warriors had no choice but to do more during Durant's 19-game absence this spring with a knee injury.
