Warriors not happy with Kendrick Perkins' 'dangerous' bench incident with Stephen Curry

Yet the performance - with the sprint-and-shoot element of Curry's game coming alive - highlights something meaningful about the Warriors.

The Warriors have imposed themselves upon the Cavs early and see that as crucial for more success.

"Every shot that he takes, he has the business of making them", he told reporters, as per USA Sports Today.

Certain shots - particularly this almost 30-foot circus shot to beat the shot clock early in the fourth - will understandably garner the majority of the attention, as it provided Golden State enormous momentum as Cleveland was attempting to make one final push.

If the Cavaliers hope to compete in these Finals, they need LeBron James to be at his absolute best, but he was not in game two.

But it appears Iguodala - or Iggy as everyone likes to call him - could make a return as soon as the next game of the series, per Chris Haynes of ESPN. It may be about to get a lot closer.

Unfortunately for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Smith was a nonfactor Sunday night after his late-game mistake in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Cleveland surprised many by forcing Game 1 to go to overtime.




In the case of the last four finals, it's been either the Golden State Warriors, or the Cleveland Cavaliers.

One play, in particular, seems to perfectly sum up the Finals, especially LeBron's lack of help, and the Cavs' little chance of pulling off an upset. But there was also something revealing in his words, something that cuts to the heart of Cleveland's ability to get this far in the playoffs, despite facing elimination against Milwaukee and Boston.

While bullying is never good, they are family, and they are fighting over a sport so deeply rooted in our psyche that feeling for your respective teams is actually a good sign. "We've played some really good basketball on our home floor".

LeBron James led the team with 29 points, nine rebounds and 13 assists, Kevin Love added 22 points with 10 rebounds while George Hill chipped in with 15 points. Cleveland's 26-of-51 shooting in the paint wasn't bad. Hood is a (long) long shot, especially against the Warriors, but it is hard to imagine him worse than Smith.

And yet here he is in the NBA Finals after vanquishing three opponents in the postseason only to meet his nemesis for the fourth time in as many seasons. The thought of what happened then lingers. He finished with eight assists and seven rebounds.

And on Sunday night, Love was made to feel like he was on an island again and again and again - maybe a dozen times in all. If Golden State gets that from any members of the non-Big Four, the Warriors just aren't going to lose.

Usually the Cavs are in such situations.
