Tristan Thompson Walks Out of Interview Over Stephen Curry Question
- Bernice Underwood
The Warriors had it going for much of Game 2, especially offensively. But Sunday, after spending what he said felt like the three entire off days between games on the trainers' table, he barely gave an indication of the high left ankle sprain suffered early in Game 1, and scored 20 points in almost 34 minutes. 50-plus points in Game 1?
James became irate at the officials for a no-call on Curry, who ran beneath the Cavs star and didn't let him land with 3:54 remaining in the quarter as James caught Love's long pass and went out of bounds. "At the end of the day, you can control what you can control". It'd be more likely you'd get offense from him than Smith right now.
Smith was 2-of-9 from the field.
Klay Thompson is available to play in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. James is truly the greatest, no matter how good or bad his supporting cast may be. For one, the Warriors were outrebounded 53-38 in Game 1, and McGee does a good job of keeping big men off the glass. He added two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes. He had played only three minutes in the conference finals against Houston, when Golden State went with smaller lineups to match the Rockets' perimeter shooters.
The whole question was pretty silly.
That he is, and now the Warriors find themselves up 2-0 on the Cavaliers. When I'm switching on him, I'm guarding him. Trying to stop them along while two other players combine to shoot a ideal 11-for-11 from the field is near impossible.
Durant is off to a 5-for-6 start, while Shaun Livingston has provided a spark off the bench with eight points, making his first four shots. "He's gotten better gradually, but there's no way of knowing for sure at this point".
Swish, while he shot the ball plenty of times, wasn't shooting many swishes in Game 2. He finished with 12 points on 6-for-6 shooting. That wasn't the case on Sunday.
The typically efficient Durant connected on 10 of 14 shots after going just 8 for 22 - 1 of 7 on 3s - in the opener but still scoring 26 points.
