Warriors vs. Cavaliers, Game 2

Curry hedge

The Warriors defeated the Cavaliers, 122-103 tonight in Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals to take a 2-0 series lead.

"You have to realize that, one, you don't know who they are". "The very last possession of the game, of overtime".

Cleveland pulled within 5 points 3 times in the third quarter but the Warriors carried a 90-80 lead heading into the payoff period.

J.R. Smith's unjustifiable play at the end of regulation in Thursday contest could come back to the memory of the Cavs and to haunt them. It's a mystery why Smith did what he did, but his teammates were not happy. It would be insane to give the center all the credit for the Warriors making 10 of their first 11 field goal attempts, but his presence certainly didn't hurt.

It's been a rocky road for the Cavaliers this season, going through some big changes to their roster. After some solid performances in the Eastern Conference Finals, it seemed as though the Cavs had found their groove again.

Thompson suffered a high left ankle sprain in his Game 1 collision with Cleveland's JR Smith, a source told ESPN's Ramona Shelburne, confirming a Yahoo!

James, who has played in some 1,400 National Basketball Association games, called Thursday's loss one his "toughest" ever when, after some questionable calls by referees, point guard George Hill then missed a free throw with less than five seconds left (which would have given the Cavs the lead). He also managed eight rebounds and eight assists. James and Kevin Love combined for 72 points; the rest of the Cavs combined for 42 points.

YouTube, Snapchat more popular compared to Facebook among USA teens
Although this platform helps define the social media category, younger users want a platform that is something more of a utility. When it comes to the platform they access most frequently throughout the day, Snapchat is king.

It was clear, though, that Smith had no idea what the plan was. You've got to be able to play hard, and I think that's what I bring to my team. But heading into Game 2, Thompson says the pain has increased.

Can the Cavaliers bounce back?

Twitter has been ablaze with people creating memes about the error.

Kerr elected to start JaVale McGee in Game 2, an adjustment that was foreshadowed when McGee started the second half of the opener. After holding a 19-4 edge on the offensive glass in Game 1, the Cavs were 15-7 on Sunday.

A Golden State defense that was uncharacteristically undisciplined in Game 1 made better decisions in response, particularly from the help side.

Thompson was asked if he felt "helpless" when forced to guard Steph Curry and Klay Thompson on the perimeter and didn't take kindly to that question, immediately searching for his stuff and grumbling "that's f*cked up" as he promptly walked out of the scrum.

While Love scored 21 points to go along with 13 rebounds, he converted just one of his eight three-point shot attempts. I'm going to keep taking care of my family.

"Sometimes you need a little luck". But they couldn't contain Curry and the rest of the Warriors for extended stretches.
