Cavs look to even series against Warriors Sunday night

Cavs look to even series against Warriors Sunday night

He had three offensive boards, but the Warriors had 14 of their own.

Brown took over at the Cavs for the second time in the 2013-14 season and his deal was for more than $20million over five years, though his last year would be partially guaranteed. However, he isn't too anxious about his shooting slump.

"I'm all physicality", Thompson said. "And that's our best effort to win this championship, is just be ourselves". I am not about getting numbers, I am not about getting the gaudy stats. I wanted to string together a few good days, I did that, and feeling well enough to coach. Golden State had only four giveaways, matching a finals record low. The only exception was when Kyrie Irving hit an off-balance three-pointer while getting fouled.

Thompson insisted he didn't need to change much regarding his approach, and his teammates and coaches consistently expressed little concern, pointing to his general contributions to the team's flawless postseason. When it comes to Love, he is listed with an over/under of 17.5 points for Game 2 and an over/under of 12.5 rebounds tonight.

"I was happy with my performance on (the other) side of the ball, being locked in defensively". "You can talk, like, 15-0 or whatever he did, but the team was just falling apart at the seams, and so I just had to get back to make sure we righted the ship". And I told you. They had good looks, but they missed a lot of layups.

"This past week, for whatever reason, things got worse, my symptoms got worse, and I was not able to coach" Kerr said at the time.

Meanwhile, Cleveland, after finishing second-to-last in the National Basketball Association in defense after the all-star break, made mistakes a junior-varsity team would defensively in Game 1, allowing multiple uncontested dunks for Durant and often looking hopelessly lost at that end of the floor. Were not just going to say, ‘Oh, man, we really need to get Klay going.”.

Thompson was also all praise for Durant and credited him for their stunning 13-0 run in the post-season.

WHAT SHARPS SAY: "Quality teams off a blowout loss normally bounce back in the next game, but that was not the case a year ago. It was 2-0 past year, we lost".

So while he was tweeting Thursday about Santa Claus and Australian Rules Football, Durant was dunking on the sort of nonexistent defense typically seen at an All-Star Game. "We will have to help out, and knock some shots down from the perimeter, especially me".

Struggling with turnovers and defensive communication, the defending NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers are counting on learning from their mistakes to fight their way back in the NBA Finals.

LeBron James led the way for Cleveland with a near triple-double, scoring 28 points on 9-for-20 shooting to go along with 15 rebounds and eight assists, but also had eight turnovers. "Going into Game 2 we'll be a lot more settled in, a lot better on the defensive end". "And as I said, the intention is to go the rest of the series". "I know he didn't lose confidence in himself, at all, and knew he was helping us win, even though he wasn't shooting the ball well".

Thompson said he expects a more physical game from Cleveland on Sunday and Love said the Cavs will try to be more forceful in hopes of creating more turnovers. Really good. I'm happy for him, happy for his family.
