The Warriors are now 14-0 in the postseason, but the coach warned against complacency after the Cavs surged back from 3-1 down to win last year's Finals between the two teams. That would dig an even deeper hole for the Cavaliers than the one they already find themselves in after the first two games of the Finals. This makes Cleveland 0-for-5 in NBA Finals games when Brown coached. Curry recorded his first career postseason triple-double with 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, while Durant contributed 33 points, 13 rebounds and six assists while moving two wins from his first ring.
Green had said that the effort to win 73 games might have taken focus on the title quest a year ago, but Curry said he had no regrets about how Golden State handled the situation.
The Warriors committed 20 turnovers in Game 2 but simply shook that off with an NBA Finals-record 18 3-pointers in a 132-113 romp. "Around 2012, that's when coaches stopped thinking they could go at me and get a basket or get me in foul trouble", Durant said.
At that rate, the Cavs will need nine games for a win.
"We've got to play our game and play with pace, but we can't get in a hurry".
Weve to do a better job of being on bodies and bringing the contact, Lue said, adding theyve got to play physical without playing crude. The power forward struggled at times in Cleveland's two losses at Oracle Arena, and he has been at the center of trade rumors for much of the time since he signed a five-year contract with the Cavs in the summer of 2015.
"To see him back on the bench was huge", Curry said.

SpaceX plans to return the actual rocket, called Falcon 9, back to Cape Canaveral after it detaches from the capsule ( Dragon ). Unlike the Dragon, the Cygnus is not created to survive re-entry and it will burn up when it falls back into the atmosphere.

More worrisome than the long-term guesses could be the expected tariffs on USA carbon emitters slapped on by other countries. Pittsburgh, however, isn't sticking with him - at least not on climate change.
"But heading to Cleveland we're going to have to be a lot smarter. And we're going to need to play better to win on the road". "We know how hard it is to be the best team in the league", Durant said.
Kevin Durant and Steph Curry are playing out of their minds, hitting over 43 per cent of their three-point attempts and scoring more than 25 points per game. "We love his voice", Curry said. "So we just have to be mentally prepared to withstand the runs that they make at us or the small adjustments they make and be able to counter it". The dynamic duo, Steph Curry, 29, and Kevin Durant, 28, came out on fire, and were almost impossible to control on both, offense and defense.
"That's not our game", said James. While the all-star shooting guard's defense had been a big factor in Golden State's victory - Cavaliers shooters had gone just 1-for-12 with him covering them - Thompson had shot just 3-for-16, continuing his postseason slump. "And for him the whole priority was his health, and I think he's in a good place right now".
The first two games have shown a stark difference in depth.
Kyrie Irving scored 24 points in the opener and Love had a big day in Game 2, but starters Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith have been almost invisible and the bench has offered little help. The Warriors were in the same position past year, up 2-0 with all the momentum.
"It's human nature to let your guard down, human nature, 2-0, everybody in the world 'It's over, it's over,"' Livingston said. "As much as the comparison wants to be drawn from last year to this year, this is a totally different team". Cleveland Cavaliers' J.R.
