Cavs not looking to slow down pace of Finals with Warriors

Cavs not looking to slow down pace of Finals with Warriors

Game 3 against Golden State is Wednesday at 9 p.m.at Quicken Loans Arena.

But he has become even more of a superstar during this year's NBA Finals and has been a huge piece in Golden State's flawless postseason thus far.

If the Cavs don't respond at home, they'll likely soon be seeing Durant hoisting the Larry O'Brien trophy.

In Game 2, Curry shot a bold pull-up three-pointer that Love defended well.

The Cleveland Cavaliers increased their pace of play in Game 2 of the 2017 NBA Finals, but the Golden State Warriors answered with multiple scoring runs, and that led to a 132-113 victory and 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

It could be that Durant's defense will quiet the critics at last, especially if he comes out a victor after that scrutinized move from Oklahoma City last July to join the super-Warriors.

"We feel like we have a good game plan, we just need to execute for 48 minutes".

But Curry's health can not be underestimated.

"Teams have great nights in this league, and it's the National Basketball Association, so that can happen a lot", Durant said. Unable to shake the lumbering Kevin Love in 2016, Curry is back to embarrassing anyone with the gall to challenge him on the perimeter.

Green was suspended for Game 5 of the Finals, an event which was not connected to that pursuit of 73 wins.

It's the ultimate sign of respect that the Warriors would treat Irving with the same reverence as they give LeBron. "Anything they throw in the game, be ready to adjust to it. So you've got to try to focus on the next game and your job and what you can do to help your team be successful", James said. "You see a competitive level of where like it hasn't been matched". "I think that was a much tougher transition because you're talking about two guys who generally in their careers to that point had been kind of point forward types, neither one was really a three-point shooter at the time".

He said if there had been anything interesting to come out of the meeting, his foreign minister would have reported it to him. The FBI also is probing whether anyone associated with Trump's presidential campaign was involved in the Russian hacking.

It's a focus that is sharpened by bitter memories of last June, even if some of the names have changed.

They are averaging almost 119 points and winning by a record 16.9 per game in the postseason, and they've really picked it up lately.

Zaza Pachulia and David West and JaVale McGee and Matt Barnes are, along with Durant, the new veterans.

The crowd blew the roof off as the Cavs blew out the Warriors.

The only other team in MLB, NFL or NHL history to win 14 consecutive games in the playoffs was the Pittsburgh Penguins, spanning the 1992 and 1993 hockey postseasons.

Leads are history, right. [But] if we were able to do that, I don't think when I talk about a championship I'd say we were the only team to go 16-0. The Warriors were in the same position previous year, up 2-0 with all the momentum.

The numbers are similar numbers, but the vibe is different. "That's our game", said Cavs coach Tyronn Lue, who shot down speculation Iman Shumpert would start for Smith in a lineup change.

"Everyone from myself to my teammates to our coaching staff to our fans understand how important Game 3 is", said Cavs star guard Kyrie Irving. They want to play fast, for example. "We're moving the ball great, we're shooting the ball at a high clip, and our defense has been unbelievable".

"That's a year ago and I don't even know the feeling anymore", LeBron James said. We obviously had a lead and we lost it.

"If we're locked in on the defensive end, we'll score enough points", Green said.
