Golden State preparing for expected adjustments by Cleveland Cavaliers for Game 2

Golden State preparing for expected adjustments by Cleveland Cavaliers for Game 2

"We have to do a better job of playing with more pace, attacking more and they do a good job of switching out on pin downs".

At the same time, the unusual extra day between two games played in the same city gives teams a chance to rest tired bodies and prepare a game plan.

Beaten a year ago by Cleveland's historic comeback, the Warriors will try to avenge that defeat and get back on top when they face the Cavaliers again, the first time two teams have met three straight times in the NBA Finals.

But after the game, Durant said, "Tonight, I thought we could be a lot better than we were tonight". "They capitalized. And we get a couple days to see what they did and see what we did wrong and how we can be better in game two". "We have to take good shots". He also added eight rebounds, eight assists and no turnovers. Overcommit to the lane, and their shooters will tee off from 3-point range. Thompson ranked 15th in the league with 9.2 rebounds a game.

"We were victims of ourselves", the forward added.

But with the roster the Cavaliers have put together over the last year, they don't look like a team capable of winning games by grinding their opponent into submission, like they had so much success doing as last year's Finals went on. "People see so much unselfishness, they see the beauty in the pass", Andre Iguodala said. "It's not just the tap-outs, the turnovers, their lack of turnovers (the Warriors had four)".

A lackluster postseason could be salvaged by a close, compelling series, which was the result of an National Basketball Association 2K17 simulation that ended with Durant leading the Warriors to a Game 7 rout.

The speedy Warriors' fast break proved more than Cleveland could handle. "I think when you're the prohibitive favorite against LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, that means you're a heck of a team, and they sure are". He's still a threat to get hot at any moment, and Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue is well aware of that. Two of their All-Stars - Draymond Green and Klay Thompson - combined to go just 6 of 28 from the field.

"Since I've been in this league, it's hard to get to the playoffs, let alone march all the way to the finals", guard Iman Shumpert said. "Can't give a great scorer like Durant easy baskets".

"We can play better".

"We can play better".

"We can't turn the ball over", Lue said.

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love says execution, not effort, is what must improve. They have the tools required, including the offense, with LeBron James on their team. "We had a ton of turnovers".

"There were certain points where they were getting hands on balls, deflections, and being first to the 50-50 balls. That's the formula for us", Curry said.

"K.D.", he said, referring to Durant.

Golden State's Stephen Curry, who had 28 points and 10 assists, sparkled in the third quarter, his two three-pointers capping a 13-0 run to start the second half that produced a 73-52 lead.

"I know we'll play better come Sunday", Lue said on Friday.

And after a team has been blown out in the playoffs, history shows that team typically tries to make a statement in Game 2 that things will be different.
