Jordan Bell and Javale McGee reenact Steph Curry-Kendrick Perkins beef

Kendrick Perkins hasn't played one second of the NBA Finals for the Cleveland Cavaliers, but he wants the Golden State Warriors - and especially Stephen Curry - to "pick another battle" after a Game 2 incident. Not only were his nine 3-pointers a Finals record, but also a career playoff-high for Curry.

Cleveland could try to run Curry off the 3-point line (something the Rockets did well) and into a crowded lane - in essence, run Curry into a wall of humanity. The Warriors and Cavs split Game 3 and 4 in Cleveland before the Warriors won the series in Game 5. The Cleveland scene should be pretty raucous for the country to see.

By joining the 73-win Warriors, Durant made Golden State almost unbeatable and created a large talent deficit between the Dubs and the rest of the league. It's too late in the year for players to be yelling at each other after makes because they weren't sure whether to hedge or switch. Enter, Lebron James. The "King" has been masterful against the Warriors yet again.

But with the Warriors clearly belonging to Stephen Curry, it might be only a matter of time before the Slim Reaper restores the balance of power and dons a new uniform.

The Cavs have to make shots.

Curry is often knocked for not being a prototypical, drive-and-kick point guard, but in this series, he has been one.

Too slow with feet and hand checking. He hadn't blown up. You know, you can go down the list and kind of say that about everyone. By going at Steph, he literally woke up a sleeping giant and caused his team to get blown out. A verbal altercation ensued between the two before the formers teammates LeBron James and Tristan Thompson separated them.

We'll find out which route the Cavs go in Game 3 soon enough, but whether this series goes four games or seven, the Curry conundrum looks like it's going to be these NBA Finals' defining factor. I'm sticking with it.
