Curry is 30, Durant is 29, and Draymond Green and Klay are 28. Cleveland shot 50 percent in the second quarter (13-for-26) which included three 3-pointers, and the Cavaliers pushed their lead to as many as 13. Curry's backcourt partner Klay Thompson was just as chilly.
The questions serve as a reminder of McGee's role with reigning National Basketball Association champions: supporting cast member.
The sight of Kevin Durant dribbling up the left wing with under a minute to go would be enough to make any Cleveland fan have sweat-induced night terrors.
No one in Warriors history has more postseason rebounds than Chamberlain, who grabbed 922 in his time with the Philadelphia and San Francisco Warriors. For nights like Wednesday night, allowing them to overcome terrible shooting nights from their other All-Stars and increase their margin for error.
It was in that moment Durant changed the National Basketball Association landscape and this entertaining rivalry forever.
The Cavaliers don't have answers for Durant or the Warriors motion, and this series is now all but over. That's what the Warriors brought in Durant to do, for games like this when their other stars struggle - and that's exactly what he has delivered.
"I mean, it's nearly like playing the [New England] Patriots", James said. All right. There it is. "LeBron James, I guess", he said with a laugh. His ability to handle the ball, shoot the ball, make plays at his length, his size, his speed.
The Cavs began the second quarter with an 21-9 run, James scoring eight points and Love netting the final eight for Cleveland to produce their biggest lead at 50-37.
James recorded his 10th triple-double of the playoffs and it didn't matter.Читайте также: LeBron James: Cavs & Warriors Don't Want Invite To White House
Lue gave Rodney Hood a chance and the seldom-used forward came through with 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting with six rebounds.
Kevin Love added 20 points for the Cavs, who have fallen into a hole in which no team has ever emerged.
The Cavs won the rebounding battle by 10 once again.
Durant's last basket was eerily like a 3-pointer he made late in game three previous year against the Cavs that clinched a Golden State victory.
It's a notion that later made Durant laugh.
James went to the line with 4 minutes, 24 seconds to play and sank both shots, yet the lead was short-lived as Durant made another shot on the other end. In Game 2, he had 12 points and made all six of his shots. And with Golden State already halfway to the four wins needed for another National Basketball Association title, his presence will make this comeback attempt by the Cavaliers in this series only more challenging.
"We're going to keep fighting", Tristan Thompson said.
When assessing what the league might look like next year, and what kind of competition there will be, LeBron James will always be the biggest question. "He got his work in with the rest of the guys during those weeks, kept his conditioning up, and he's giving us a huge lift right now". "I think everybody gets excited for the small parts of the game, and Steph is one of those guys that just brings that joy".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
