Curry breaks record, Warriors blast Cavs

Curry breaks record, Warriors blast Cavs

Guthrie is making his finals debut as a referee Sunday night for Game 2 of the Cleveland-Golden State series.

J.R. Smith's unjustifiable play at the end of regulation in Thursday contest could come back to the memory of the Cavs and to haunt them. Smith's decision to dribble the ball outside of the three-point line rather than attempt a layup and try to draw a foul made no sense.

Steve Kerr announced earlier this evening that he's hopeful Thompson will be able to play Game 2 tonight. It ended up with the Golden State Warriors winning 124-114.

"I think J.R.is one of the most resilient guys I've ever been around", James said Saturday. He seemed confused, believing that Cleveland had the lead.

No. 4 Cleveland Cavaliers vs.

Either way now, the blunder is in the past, and there's nothing which the Cavaliers can do to change it. Part of the problem, he admits, is that it's a "gift and a curse" having LeBron James for a teammate, something that Rodney Hood is beginning to understand.

Despite his ankle injury, Klay Thompson intends to play in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday.

James is already the career leader in finals 3-pointers with 83, but Stephen Curry is closing fast and only two behind him.

ABC gets to reap the rewards of the NBA Finals , which tip off Thursday with the Cavaliers and either the Warriors or Rockets . Still down four points with almost seven minutes left in the game, Tatum made a decision to take things into his own hands.

LeBron James had his second-straight big game in a losing effort, scoring 29 points, and just missing a triple-double with 9 rebounds and 13 assists.

It was clear, though, that Smith had no idea what the plan was.

Immediately after the game, Smith said he was waiting for someone to call a timeout and that he didn't shoot because of the estimable presence of Kevin Durant. The Cavaliers did not get what should have been a quality look and Smith appeared to tell LeBron James he thought Cleveland was ahead instead of tied.

Everyone with access to the internet has found Smith's blunder amusing. Several memes were then created with the image of James' distressed reaction to describe a number of other exasperating situations that Netizens face in daily life. But Game 2 was not quite as exciting, as the Warriors registered a 19-point victory to take a 2-0 lead.

Warriors: Thompson played in his franchise-record 100th postseason game. So he's definitely going to start again.

"Sometimes you need a little luck". The Golden State Warriors aren't the dominant team they were last season.

Second quarter, 8:14, 39-33 Warriors: George Hill has been one of the lone bright spots for the Cavs in the game. They had the Warriors beaten at Oracle Arena, where the Warriors have lost just one playoff game since Kevin Durant joined the team.
