Cavs' J.R. Smith struggles in Game 2 after Game 1 blunder

Thompson has 297 playoff triples entering Sunday, which would be his 100th career playoff game.

There are plenty of interesting ramifications from LeBron James' pending free agency. James had a monster game to keep Cleveland in it through, pouring in 51 points to go with eight boards and eight assists.

Steph Curry was on fire in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night, and there really is nothing you can do when that happens. That's two full weeks away from the action for the 2015 Finals MVP, who earned his hardware in large part because of the work he did defending LeBron in that series.

"Kevin is probably going to have 26 points, whether he plays well or not", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

They could not get things going early in the fourth, however, allowing the Warriors to cruise to victory.

Fans in Oakland showed their appreciation for the hero of Game 1 (from their perspective) by chanting "M.V.P" when he went to the line for the first time in Game 2.

"The game's over. There's nothing we can do about it", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

The Warriors listed Thompson as questionable for Sunday's second game with a bruise in his left leg, though Thompson offered more specifics Saturday after practice. In the fourth quarter alone, he hit five 3. And just as you wondered whether Cleveland could recover from the way it lost the first game, you now must ponder the possibility that Golden State, two victories from another championship, has rediscovered its superteam form just in time to tuck this demanding season in bed. Aggression doesn't always translate to success.

Tipoff for Game 2 is set for 8 p.m. E.T.

Either way, repeated changes to the USA strategy on China may only bog down talks with Beijing moving forward, Reinsch said. The dispute was initiated in March over Beijing's "discriminatory technology licensing requirements", the White House said.

Callahan is working his 20th finals game.

Curry led the Warriors with 33 points. He's going to make these G.O.A.T. debates very hard as the points continue to pile up.

While Golden State possess multiple scoring options on offense, Cleveland continued to struggle with finding a support network for LeBron James and Kevin Love in the game opener.

In addition to his game-high point total, Curry also added eight assists and seven rebounds.

"I mean, I try all sorts of shots at some point or another, but at that point, it's just feel and letting it go". Or do they want to make a convincing argument that they deserve to be put high on the list of the greatest National Basketball Association teams - or perhaps the greatest teams, period - ever created?

3 - The Warriors' magic number this postseason is 25, as in assists.

"If it gets a little fiery, that's fine", Curry said before later shaking off the whole thing as, "Much ado about nothing". That should make for an easy talking point during film study for Kerr and his staff. Move the ball and the results will come. After holding a 19-4 edge on the offensive glass in Game 1, the Cavs were 15-7 on Sunday.

Cleveland is off to a good start in what is usually Golden State's quarter. It was a crushing blow for the Cavs and they eventually ran out of steam in overtime, with the Warriors winning 124-114.
