Cleveland Cavaliers Will Focus On Being More Physical In Game 2

Game 2 of the Finals will begin at 8 p.m. ET.

Now, Golden State is headed to Northeast Ohio needing just two more - yet don't count on anybody considering this series close to done.

"Just getting a chance to see how they play, the style of play, how fast they play, you can't really simulate that in practices", Lue said.

Thompson then pushed the ball ahead to Durant who with two dribbles waltzed into the lane for wide-open dunk after JR Smith decided that leaving Curry unattended for a wing three would be a bad decision.

The Warriors lead the Finals 1-0 against the Cavaliers. "I wanted to string together a few good days". Kerr's picture was shown on the videoboard as the fans stood and cheered.

Golden State already had a great team a year ago in a 73-win season, but the addition of Kevin Durant has made things downright miserable on LeBron.

It may not be the easiest welcome-back game, but the Warriors finally have their leader back at the helm.

The themes of Game 2 were established early. After dropping the first two games at Golden State, Cleveland beat the Warriors at home, helping set up the Cavs' epic comeback.

Lalchand Rajput , who has held several positions with India A previously, and Dodda Ganesh are the Indian applicants. So if Kumble denies to be the coach further, the only option left with the board is to find a replacement for him.

Former Warriors coach Al Attles was honored for his longevity and influence before Game 2 of the NBA Finals. And so are Cleveland's black jerseys.

But after a convincing 22-point win, the Golden State Warriors' prized free agent signing is convinced those same opportunities won't present themselves again during Game 2 on Sunday.

Kerr received a standing ovation from the Warriors faithful and hugged Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue as he walked out to the court before the game. But we've still got to play. "So they make it tough and they put you in some tough situations".

Thompson, who is averaging 13.8 points across 13 games in the playoffs this season, scored just six points on 3-of-16 shooting, while going 0-for-5 on 3-point attempts in Game 1.

Mike Brown has been serving as the Warriors' acting coach since Game 3 of the first round against the Portland Trail Blazers.

That was the first time Kerr found himself unable to cope with the debilitating headaches that have gripped him since a back surgery resulted in a spinal-fluid leak in the summer of 2015.

The Cleveland coach says Kerr is someone he respected even before he started coaching and is glad Golden State has its leader back.
