Ten lingering thoughts: Game 2 of NBA Finals

  • Klay Thompson expects to play in Game 2 of NBA Finals with sore ankle

Former Celtics star Ray Allen set the previous record in 2010, when he made eight 3-pointers against the Lakers in Game 2 of that series.

Curry was 5-for-5 on 3s in the fourth quarter, and each time he knocked one down, it inched the Warriors closer and closer to a blowout against the stubborn Cavaliers.

Golden State ended its run of slow starts by taking a 32-28 lead after the first quarter of Game 2 in the NBA Finals Sunday night.

A similar situation occurred in the summer of 2016, when sportsbooks saw big bets (including one $20,000 wager) show up on Golden State before news broke that Kevin Durant had made a decision to leave Oklahoma City and join the Warriors. The final 3 of the night for Curry sealed the runaway win, giving the Warriors a 21-point lead. But that's no easy task against the vaunted Warriors defense.in your 102nd game of the season.

Even if we take LeBron at his word, that he wasn't exhausted, it was because he was conserving energy on both ends of the floor throughout the game.

We'll see how things play out.

"I can't meet him outside of here because I'll still get fined, but I can meet him in the streets any day".

Draymond Green didn't sugarcoat it: Golden State got a little lucky to win Game 1 on a night James scored 51 points and the defending champions caught some big breaks. "They'd draw a lot of action and probably would have the third-best odds in the West behind Houston and Golden State if LeBron went there".

Kerr had also said Thompson was doing better Sunday morning when he checked in with the training staff.

When he thought of how he would pay for it, Duplantis said he recalled something he said God had told him back in 1978. Louisiana-based televangelist Jesse Duplantis raised eyebrows Tuesday when he said God told him he needs a new jet.

Klay Thompson, meanwhile, is "probable" to play.

Green was important during Cleveland's series against the Toronto Raptors, and vital to their Game 7 win over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals.

"It is a Finals game, and I'm going to do everything I possibly can to play", he said.

Through two games of the 2018 Finals, Curry is making a pretty serious case that he should check off that box.

He's missing his sixth straight postseason contest with a bone bruise in his left knee.

Kerr remains optimistic the 2015 NBA Finals MVP will play at some point in the series. "I didn't realize how much you use your ankle until you hurt it".

You marvel at the shooting, but the Warriors won because they complemented it with a defensive performance that limited the Cavaliers to 34.8 percent shooting in the first half and 41.1 percent for the game.

Any short-term concerns about Klay Thompson, who came into the game nursing a high sprain of his left ankle suffered on Thursday night, were largely extinguished early. They're good. They're great, actually. Got to let it go.

"He has gotten better gradually, but there's no way of knowing for sure at this point", Kerr said.
