Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and the Golden State Warriors battle LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love and the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 of the NBA Finals rematch on Sunday night. Alexa is ready to help you out.
That's the plan for the defending champions Sunday night and will be key if they want to even the best-of-seven series and look respectable after the Warriors whipped them 113-91 Thursday night.
The Cavaliers got off to a better start in Game 2 of the NBA Finals tonight, but still trail the Golden State Warriors 40-34 after one quarter. "It's the same guy I've always seen - attacking, making shots, making huge plays for our team".
Durant and Curry combined for 66 points and 18 assists, moving the Warriors three straight wins from becoming the first team to go unbeaten on the way to a title.
The mismatches Golden State created with the addition of Durant are considerable, and how Cavs coach Tyronn Lue intends to solve them is beyond me.
Cleveland appeared to have no answer for Durant, who drove by anyone who tried to jump out on him (as six first-half dunks made clear) and shot over anyone who tried to play back.
Golden State, which committed just four turnovers in Game 1, had eight in the first quarter alone but nonetheless managed to build as much as a 10-point advantage in the period.
Kevin Durant joined an already star-studded Warriors lineup from Oklahoma City at the end of last season to win National Basketball Association championships and the superstar forward showed he's prepared to get there as quickly as possible after dominating the Cavs in Game 1. And we forced them to 20 turnovers and they still beat us pretty good.

In the letter, Mrs Court speaks of her sadness due to Ms Dellacqua's child with her partner, as the child would not have a father. I would imagine a lot of the players would be pretty offended by that.
It does boost the Cavaliers' faith in being able to fight back knowing James has such a history in road playoff contests, according to Cleveland forward Kevin Love.
The sarcasm was dripping from his lips as he spoke, and understandably so if you have LeBron, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving on your team.
Like the turnover issues, the Cavaliers can realistically expect their outside shooting to improve in Game 2 and beyond.
But his defense is still as crucial as he is the rare player equally adept at controlling ball-handling point guards, chasing shooters around screens and matching up with bigger players in the post.
"I was just really focused on the floor, so anything outside of that, I don't pay any mind to it", he said.
Are people still sleeping on the Warriors as being this great defensive team because they're up there analytically with the best of them. "They will be way more physical".
"I feel like it's back where it was before the Portland series", Kerr said. "Most of the time it's going to be a touchdown going the other way".
"I know they are watching film, and something for them is to keep me off the glass".
