Ratings for 2017 NBA Finals highest since Jordan's last title in 1998

Steve Kerr was back on the sideline as coach.

Golden State won a record 73 regular-season games past year and led 2-0 only for Cleveland to make the greatest comeback in NBA Finals history and take the title.

As James said Sunday night the Cavs needed to do things "I don't want to say differently, because you work so hard to get to this point, but make a couple of changes to see if we can be a lot better defensively and offensively". When we get stops, we want to get out and run. "That's what he does". It will be an even taller task now, with the Warriors deploying Kevin Durant.

Andre Iguodala entered the game for Green.

While best known for his sensational scoring and shot-making from every corner of the court, Durant has been tough on LeBron James so far in these NBA Finals by smothering the Cavs superstar.

"That's what makes him the best player in the world", said Cavaliers assistant coach Damon Jones, long a close confidante of James. There is always a chance whenever James is on the floor, and both Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love are healthy.

Kevin Durant hit a game-high 33 points, while Stephen Curry recorded his first play-off triple-double, with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists.

"We forced them to 20 turnovers and they still beat us pretty good, so we got to be much better", James said. The pace rating of Game 1 was 105.52 for each team. Klay Thompson had 22 points for the Warriors.

Nowhere else will you find such humour and a unique personality, someone who puts friends and family above all others. On Tuesday, family and friends of Ms Zelenak were seen arriving at her family home in Brisbane, before they flew out.

"I see two guys who [are] more locked in than I've ever seen either one of them in my life", teammate Draymond Green said after Golden State's 132-113 victory over Cleveland in Game 2 on Sunday night.

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. Assuming the Warriors can keep all four players under contract and healthy, there is no reason why the Warriors shouldn't dominate the league for the next four to five years.

On that third-quarter drive, James had little help as Love got there late. "I have the physical tools, but it's also about mentally knowing what to do". "We know, trust me, we know". "We don't play slow-down basketball". Sometimes it's better than other times, but this is the time of year you really need it the most. The Warriors squandered a 3-1 lead to the Cavs a year ago to miss a repeat.

"It's nice, our fans are unbelievable and they know I've been through a tough time but it's great to be back out on the floor and feel the energy of the finals and I was pretty pleased with the way our team responded", said Kerr. "Trust me, we know".

"It's a key for us to get them off the line, because they have been killing teams the last few years in the playoffs from three", Thompson said. Meanwhile, Curry made 18 of 39 shots and has scored 60 points.

Clearly the Hall of Famer is impressed with the 245 points Golden State put up through two games, compared with 204 by Cleveland.

It didn't matter in the end. "He looked like he was in tune, like he was focused not like upset about stuff, because he can't control everything, but only what he can do", said Leonard Golson, San Francisco resident. "And we're a full group when he's out here, so that means a lot".
