Curry, Durant lead Warriors to 2-0 lead

It was James who matched Durant's steals total but even in posting a triple-double (29 points, 14 assists, 11 rebounds) in Game 2 was, on the whole, a level below. After the game James said that despite losing by 19 points, his team played better that in the first meeting. No one else has more than two.

A healthy Curry followed up a 28-point Game 1 with his first postseason triple-double on Sunday with 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.

So even though ABC is now on track to put up the biggest NBA Finals deliveries since MJ's last hurrah, everything depends on Cleveland putting together another rally for the ages - one that would be even more impressive.

So throwing that game out, the rule against the Warriors in the Finals, for three years now, has been very simple: LeBron doesn't score at least 30, the Cavs don't win.

"Having awareness, can't relax, can't fall asleep", Cavs coach Ty Lue said of Cleveland's defense. The losers were the 1969 Lakers (Boston won in seven games), the 1977 Sixers (Portland in six), the 2006 Mavericks (Miami in six) ... and the 2016 Warriors (Cavs in seven).

India has offered more aid, including helicopters, to boost the relief operations, government spokesman Rajitha Senaratne said. The meteorological department said they expected rains to subside, but the monsoon will remain active at a lower intensity.

Curry provided the coach more than a glimpse of his greatness from up close after Kerr had been watching games from the locker room while speaking to his players beforehand and at halftime. "Now we've got go back there, this is where the series changed previous year".

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) is defended by Golden State Warriors forward David West (3) during the first half in game two of the 2017 NBA Finals at Oracle Arena. But give credit to the Cavs for wanting it more past year. I think (Sunday) I was just in a good rhythm. They're big fans and didn't get to see him play.

"It's easy to say we can look at the film and make adjustments, but overall we just - as an entire unit - we need to play better", said Love.

What was so discouraging for the Cavs is that they played better in Game 2 but the result didn't really change.

"So we've got to just keep going, keep our foot on the gas and keep getting better every day".

Not that the Warriors needed another advantage to make Cleveland feel that much worse about itself, but previously struggling shooting guard Klay Thompson appears to have snapped out of that funk in Game 2. "But they're a team you cannot - you can't let them go on runs". Remember, the Cavs were down 2-0 to start, and then overcame a 3-1 deficit.

Warrior's Kevin Durant after the game. Since Irving and J.R. Smith had to worry about both Thompson and Curry on the right wing, they couldn't commit to leaving such risky assignments to help on Green if Durant passed out to him in space. "I suggested submitting it to Warner Brothers for the movie soundtrack, but KD wanted to keep it private", Goodwin said of the song. Irving has missed 27 shots in the two games, with nine assists and seven turnovers, cut off by multiple Golden State defenders.

Stephen Curry had a triple-double of his own but also committed eight turnovers.

The Warriors, on an National Basketball Association record 14-game playoff win streak, lead 2-0 in the best-of-7 championship series entering Wednesday, June 7 (Thursday, June 8 in Manila) for the 3rd game at Cleveland. Golden State hasn't lost a single game since the tournament began in mid-April, and Durant and Curry are putting on a show that would make Jordan and Pippen proud.

And yet, here we are, hoping - for competition's sake, along with a reluctance to focus full-time on pitch counts, strikeouts and National Football League training camps - that Cleveland's vets-who-haven't-played-like-vets can start to do so.
