Golden State will have four chances to wrap up its championship starting with Game 4 on Friday night. He then again lost to the Spurs eight years later against the same 3 Spurs players and many of their talented roles players like Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, and Patty Mills. He made 7-of-11 field goal attempts.
The Cavaliers opened their biggest lead of the series at 13 points and maintained a double-digit advantage through much of the first two quarters, built mostly through the shooting of James and Smith and the rebounding of Kevin Love, who has quietly had a tremendous series.
In third place is Curry's Finals opponent LeBron James, who has made 369 three-pointers in the playoffs, trailing Curry by just one. But the Warriors' motto is "strength in numbers", and Livingston and McGee are personifying that. "It's nothing really magical about what I do or how I've been playing. But we've got to come out and got to play 48 minutes". But a lot of those are dunks. He is also a very good scorer in his own right so from a player standpoint James should be considered the better all-around player than Jordan. We've taken several punches from them and we're up one. Everything else has been at the rim.
Game 2 showed an edge that has been seen, as Kerr hinted at in Orlando, in brief flashes throughout the postseason. They finished the Cavaliers off in five games in 2017.
"I had to watch as a receptionist did the "Steph-shimmy" while walking past my office after Game 1", said the Cavs flag bearer, who could offer no comeback. "It's a lovely thing to be a part of it and to be a contributor in it".
Brown, along with San Francisco 49ers defensive end Arik Armstead actually took in Game 2 of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena, and while the result of the game wasn't the one No. 81 was looking for, he was impressed by the energy of the stadium.
Game 1 of this series will be remembered by how Cleveland let it get away; the botched rebound by Smith to be forever played as one of those quintessential wish-you-had-it-back moments. It's maddening to chase Thompson around and have him get shots off using his super-quick release, even when he's fairly well covered. Being down two games tends to bring out the desperation in folks.
Tony Zarrella, Mark Schwab and Romona Robinson will have everything you need to know about the game.
"There is just a sense that we're all on the same team and nobody cares about whose team it is and all that stuff. [Kevin Durant] play one-on-one, because he's going to get his", Brown explained. So the guys did a good job on those two guys.
"I mean, I just love that support from my teammates, and I think we all just support each other in a real childlike approach to the game".
