The game will tip off at 8 p.m. ET and will broadcast nationally on ABC, as well as be available for live stream on WatchESPN. Central (8 p.m. Eastern). He also missed Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night. Though they did drop one against the Celtics, overall, Cleveland was superb in rounds two and three.

The Golden State Warriors found themselves in a close Game 2 midway through the third quarter against the Cleveland Cavaliers. That's where winning this series is going to start and it needs to in Game 2, but with terrible structure and seemingly no inside presence to stop a high-flying Durant, that's going to be easier said than done.

"You act like I'm just this troubled guy who's been in a bunch of trouble and can't control myself", Green said.

And rightfully so for the two-time MVP, as his Warriors found themselves up 12 points at home against a team that simply can't get anything going against them. While it starts with James not making as many turnovers, he is going to need support doing that.

Despite rumours of his return swirling around Warriors practice on Saturday, Kerr's status remained a mystery until just hours before Game Two. They ended up going down to the tune of 113-91, but the stat sheet told the real story of the 22-point loss. But there was also a dirty little secret the Warriors were keeping: They could play much better too.

'I'm not it's for us to debate, ' Curry said. "With him being probably one of the best scorers in the National Basketball Association, you can't give guys like that easy opportunities at the basket". He had eight turnovers and was a major part of their defensive struggles.

Unless that changes quickly, Cavs-Warriors III could end up being a much shorter series than the first two editions of the Finals trilogy that the teams split.

"It doesn't matter", Kerr said.

Not that they're discussing it. However, the small Golden State lineup has opened up opportunities for him on the glass and that could lead to some scoring chances as well if Cleveland decides to focus on getting him the ball more tonight.

That's all well and good, and will give those with a bent towards statistical analysis something to do, but it is the moments that should be remembered: those exhilarating snippets of basketball brilliance that are showing just how deep and talented and versatile the Warriors are.

The win extended their unbeaten streak in the season's playoffs to 14 games.

Right now all that matters is Game 3 on Wednesday.

At times, this game looked more like a 3-point contest than an NBA Finals game.

James and Love combined to make 24 of 41 shots, while the rest of the team shot just 36 percent with only Irving even reaching double-figures. "And we're a full group when he's out here, so that means a lot".

"They make it tough and they put you in some tough situations", Lue said. "I had two charges, that's aggression". "But it's something I did take notice after the game". Those are like pick sixes.

"That's like throwing the ball to (NFL hall of famer) Deion Sanders". But Cleveland will likely be forced to overcome a 2-0 series deficit for the second time in as many years.
