They also improved to 14-0 in the playoffs - the longest postseason winning streak in National Basketball Association history - as they bid to become the first team to go undefeated in the postseason. Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) reacts during the first half of Game 2 of basketball's NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors in Oakland, Calif., Sunday, June 4, 2017.

"That's a pretty scary proposition for us and I thought Kevin's defense was unreal and was probably the key to the whole game, along with the perimeter defence of Klay [Thompson] and Andre [Iguodala], trying to do their best with Kyrie [Irving] and LeBron".

"Much more physical today than we were in game one".

LeBron James has been brilliant in the first two games of the NBA Finals, which still have been lopsided losses for his Cleveland Cavaliers.

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.

Curry provided the coach more than a glimpse of his greatness from up close after Kerr had been watching games from the locker room while speaking to players beforehand and at halftime.

"Game 3 has been rough for us historically, and especially in this building", Curry said. I just want to win.

Steve Kerr is returning to the sidelines and is feeling so well that he plans to coach the Golden State Warriors for the remainder of the NBA Finals. As the series went on, and a 3-1 lead slipped away, Curry grew more frustrated.

"We want 15-0", Kerr said.

But after being so close past year and falling short, the Warriors know how hard the next two will be. "I know that's kind of late on my career, but it's really when I started to focus on the importance of getting a stop and rebounding and taking care of the ball". When Curry and Kerr have free-throw contests at practice, Curry's makes don't count if they brush the iron. He had games of 18 and 20 points (his season high is 22) and averaged 10 rebounds in the playoffs.

Stephen Curry hit his first triple-double.

It didn't matter in the end. We love his presence.

"There's an eight on the stat sheet that I need to correct when we go to Cleveland, because the points that I gave up off turnovers in their building will electrify the crowd and their team". Cleveland shot 3 of 20 on 3s in the first half and 8 for 29 total. The Warriors won Game 1, 113-91, and Game 2, 132-113, in Oracle Arena in Oakland. The simplest explanation is also the most germane: The Warriors are playing with two league MVPs; the Cavs are playing with one. His relationship with the players far supersedes any other member of the local media.

According to Engadget, each game of the NBA Finals between Cleveland and Golden State can be watched in VR.

Ian Clark and Thompson made 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to help the Warriors build the lead to 12 in the third minute of the second period.

If Irving shakes free of Thompson, there's a real chance that Durant and his 7-foot-5 wingspan will be waiting, if not Draymond Green or a sneaky pick attempt from Curry, who's cheating off a cold-shooting J.R. Smith. Rebounds - C 41 (James 11), GS 53 (Durant 13).
