LeBron didn't want 'C-Webb' incident at Game 1 end

Adjust Comment Print

The third quarter of Sunday's NBA Finals Game 2 ended with Golden State Warriors guard stepping into the Cleveland Cavaliers bench after heaving a corner 3-pointer in an attempt to beat the buzzer.

James followed up his 51-point performance in Game 1 with 29 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds in a far tamer finals sequel - and a much more lopsided one - minus the utter craziness of a drama-packed opener three days prior. The last - and only - time in their current four-year run that they trailed by two games in any series was when the Thunder had them, 3-1, in the 2016 Western finals.

Before Game 1 the oddsmakers had Golden State -1000 to win the series but now that number has swelled to -2150 with the Warriors owning a 2-0 lead in the series headed into Cleveland.

Kevin Durant added 26 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Warriors, while Klay Thompson chipped in with 20 points in spite of his injured ankle.

"We had some slip-ups and things we can correct going into Game 3", Curry said.

"I always say that if we focus on that, good things happen individually all across the board".

"He was tremendous", Warriors coach Steve Kerr was quoted as saying by ESPN. You know he's gonna hit some shots.

James pointed with both hands after his 3 with 11:04 remaining got his team within seven, before Curry answered from deep the next two trips down the floor.

Durant hit two free throws to tie the game. "It's never been done, ever, in the history of the game", Lue said of the reversal. Golden State's Stephen Curry scored 29 points as Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson scored 26 and 24 points respectively.

Hundreds of rescue workers, including firefighters, police and soldiers worked to recover bodies from the still-smoking lava. Twenty people had to be treated in hospital for burns including at least six children, the health ministry said.

Said James: "I asked our coaching staff if we had a timeout (in the huddle)".

The Cavs once again failed to take advantage of good looks from 3-point range that are apt to come with all the attention Golden State pays to James. Yes, that was a better Cavs team - they had Kyrie Irving - and Durant had yet to join Golden State, but numerous same players remain on both teams.

What first seemed like a bad sight was actually more lighthearted and somewhat comical as the kid was actually emotional because his family was hating on Stephen Curry for being so damn good at playing basketball. Golden State has been a center-by-committee team this season, and that means inconsistency in the rotation for McGee and others.

James, who is facing the Warriors in the finals, told reporters that the victor of the series would not be going to the White House.

That was just the start for Curry.

"Every shot that he takes, he has the business of making them", he told reporters, as per USA Sports Today.

This year, they are playing the Cleveland Cavaliers led by LeBron James for the title, and they are off to a good start. The Cavs played a ideal quarter against a Warriors team that usually dominates third quarters, and had all the momentum going into the fourth. The five-time NBA All-Star has made half of the 28 3-pointers he's shot in the series, including 6 of 8 in the fourth quarter and overtime.

According to critics, rather than displaying his frustration, James should have done more to encourage his teammates heading into overtime - a notion the 4-time MVP disagreed with when presented with it on Wednesday. "We're in the NBA Finals competing for a championship".
