Warriors cruise past Cavs in Kerr's return

06 Juin, 2017, 10:11 | Author: Come Portier

The Warriors won the first two games of the series handily against the Cleveland Cavaliers, like they did a year ago.

"You take one of the best teams that we had ever assembled past year, that we saw in the regular season and in the post-season, and then in the off-season you add a high-powered offensive talent like (Durant) and a great basketball IQ like that, that's what stands out", James said.

Love gave the Cavs a needed second offensive threat with 27 points but against a team filled with a pair of former MVPs in Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, two other 2017 All-Stars in Draymond Green and Klay Thompson and several role players who have made key contributions, it wasn't been almost enough.

"It's been a great run, but none of that matters unless we can finish the job with this series", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr, who returned to the bench after an 11-game absence to deal with back pain. But it's not the differences in the levels of each team we're focusing on right now, it's Steph Curry taking a nap during the 4th quarter.

They'll have two days to regroup before Game 3 in Cleveland and try to clean up some of their mistakes on both ends of the floor, but unless Irving gets back to his old self, the uphill battle will only be more steep.

"It's awesome", Klay Thompson said.

Kevin Love had 27 points and Irving 19 on 8-for-23 shooting for Cleveland, which committed just nine turnovers one game after having given away 20 in the opener.

"I'm not going to take a step back", Durant answered.

The Warriors had just four turnovers in Game 1 - a figure James alone doubled - but that increased to 20 on Monday, with Kerr making it clear he will not accept a repeat performance when the series continues at Quicken Loans Arena on Thursday. "They're obviously trying to make a few other guys make some plays".

Victory for Golden State was the team's 14th consecutive win in the playoffs, equaling the longest post-season win streak in the league's history. So the big man settled for a 10-foot hook shot, a low-percentage look if he even got it off.

LeBron James had 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists in defeat, the eighth postseason triple-double of his career, equaling Magic Johnson's all-time record. "It was 2-0 previous year and we lost". "So they won two games, now we got to go home and regroup".

After the game, Green said Kerr's return was a positive for the team but added that he coached them so well through 82 regular season games that they could implement his plans without his physical presence.

The key one came late in the third quarter after Cleveland cut the deficit to four points. That's what Golden State does.

'THIS IS FAR FROM OVER' Curry was excited for his statistical feat on a night of fast-paced playmaking and spectacular moves, but disappointed in his eight turnovers, twice what the team had in game one.

"If you make a mistake".

"His defense was wonderful, and we needed it especially with Draymond out", Kerr said of Durant.
