The Cleveland Cavaliers are hoping for a bounce back game against the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the 2017 NBA Finals on ABC Sports TV. "Much more physical today than we were in Game 1".

This time, Curry committed eight turnovers as Cleveland committed to putting more pressure on the ball to keep Durant from driving and dunking untouched as he did so many times in Game 1. Golden State G Klay Thompson played in his 78th career playoff game, breaking a tie with SG Jeff Mullins for the most in Warriors franchise history.

Kevin Durant scored 33 points and Steph Curry added 32 - including a 14-for-14 effort at the foul line - to power Golden State to a 132-113 rout of Cleveland in Game 2 tonight at Oracle Arena. James has won a road game in 29 straight postseason series, so his Cavs must force a Game 5 back in Oakland to keep it going.

Curry is up to 22 points for the Warriors, with seven already in the third quarter.

The Finals shift to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4 on Wednesday and Friday.

Oh, and James has 18 points to lead all scorers, on 8-for-12 shooting from the field. He also was leading in assists with 10 after two periods.

For Cleveland, it's LeBron James, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Kyrie Irving and J.R. Smith.

"I wouldn't be in this if I was thinking just one game".

Before the game, the National Basketball Coaches Association presented its annual Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement Award to co-winners Al Attles, who led the Warriors to their first West Coast championship in 1975, and Hubie Brown, a Hall of Fame honoree in 2005. "No, I'm in it for the rest of the way", Kerr said.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue also welcomed back Kerr.

Kerr last coached in Game 2 of Golden State's first-round victory against the Portland Trail Blazers before incessant pain, a remnant of surgery almost two years ago, caused him to sit out.

"He made all types of runners and floaters and all different types of shots".

Kerr returned to the bench to a rousing ovation, waving to the fans while back on the sideline for the first time since Game 2 of the first round against Portland on April 19 because of pain issues stemming from complications after 2015 back surgery.

Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star Kyrie Irving is pretty much universally hailed for having the best handles in the entire National Basketball Association. He attended the pregame news conference and said he had not yet told his players that he would be back coaching.
