Golden State Warriors' Steve Kerr returns to coach Game 2

06 June 2017

Durant and Curry had 15 points apiece for the Warriors in the half. Golden State already leads the series 1-0. Steph made a great move, got by him. "That's what he does".

The reporter said Green had avoided going over line in terms of his emotions.

"You act like I'm just this troubled guy who can't control myself", the All-Star forward said, per Ben Golliver of Sports Illustrated.

Golden State improved to 14-0 this postseason and is trying to become the first group to go unbeaten all the way to a title.

LeBron James finished with a triple-double of his own, scoring 29 points, to go with his 11 rebounds, and 11 assists.

And Durant was coming off a Game 1 in which he totaled 38 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in a 113-91 Warriors victory.

The Warriors were never going to match their four turnovers from Game 1, which set a franchise postseason record and tied the fewest for an NBA Finals game.

"We won the first two games a year ago, and the series changed in Cleveland", said Kerr.

"Game 1 we didn't turn the ball over, but we didn't particularly shoot as well as we could. And we forced them to 20 turnovers and they still beat us pretty good, so we've got to be much better, too".

But it seems that the biggest addition in this game for the Warriors was waking up of Klay Thompson, who had 22 points shooting 8 of 12 from the field. Wednesday sees the next action in the best-of-seven contest.

Kerr returned to the bench to a rousing ovation, waving to the fans while back on the sideline for the first time since Game 2 of the first round against Portland on April 19 because of pain issues stemming from complications after 2015 back surgery.

The series are moving to OH, and the next game will be played this Wednesday.

On that third-quarter drive, James had little help as Love got there late.

"I'm just seeing a lot of bodies", Irving said. "I was just kind of like a chicken with my head cut off, just running circles".

But LeBron put the Cavs on his back - reminiscent of last year's Finals - and it was his 18 points and 10 rebounds that had Cleveland down just three, 67-64, at the half.

Kerr is back coaching the Golden State Warriors after more than six weeks, feeling well enough that he plans to coach the remainder of the NBA Finals.

So don't miss Game 3, you will regret it. "The answer was no", Kerr said. "Trust me, we know". We saw what happened a year ago.

It didn't matter in the end. "There is a lot of work for us left to do".

Cavaliers: Tristan Thompson scored his first points of the series on a driving dunk midway through the first quarter.

The Cavs reached some of the goals they had for this game.
