Golden State's high-powered offence was too much for the Cleveland Cavaliers as the Warriors claimed a 122-103 victory in Game 2 of the National Basketball Association Finals on Sunday (June 3) to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. As great of a player James is, it's tough for the Cavs to beat a Golden State team and its collection of All-Stars and dependable second-stringers with James as the only consistent performer.
James looked absolutely unstoppable in a 51-point performance in game one, as he was almost flawless driving to the basket and dropping bombs from three-point range, but Sunday he passed up several open looks from deep early and only had two shots nine minutes into the game. "Yeah, I mean, it sucks to lose, that's for sure, but it definitely won't stop me from preparing to be better the next day". That's what Golden State wants.
On the Cavs side afterwards, it was more, "We can do it" stuff.
Tristan Thompson walked out of an interview after being asked a question he did not appreciate. How about in the aftermath of his costly Game 1 blunder that won't be forgotten anytime soon?

According to Chris Haynes of ESPN, Iguodala did a full workout and sprinted on Saturday, and while he didn't play in Game 2, he is pain-free and anticipates returning before the series is over.
But they still had a chance to win it after Smith grabbed the rebound off the miss. Per the excellent Sports Media Watch website, it was the third-least watched of the 19 Cavs-Warriors Finals games, ahead of Games 3 and 4 in 2016.
Since Game 6 of the Houston series, Curry has shot 5-of-9 on give-and-go 3-point tries. Following Game 1, most of the talk coming out of the visitors locker room was about how the referees overturned an offensive foul on Kevin Durant in the final minute of the fourth quarter, as well as other calls the Cavs felt should have gone their way. In 17 minutes, the sharpshooter was a ideal (imperfect?) 0-for-3 from the floor (0-for-1 from deep) while notching just one point. Korver must knock down shots, especially from beyond the arc, if the Cavs want to do that. I think the only dynasty is the Spurs. "They've got a Finals MVP that comes off their bench", James said in reference to Iguodala.
