  • Klay Thompson expects to play in Game 2 of NBA Finals with sore ankle

In Game 2 of the NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors guard edged Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James for the second most 3-pointers in the history of the playoffs.

Game 1 of the NBA Finals was an epic back and forth classic that ended with controversy after Tristan Thompson was ejected for apparently throwing an elbow at Stephen Curry as he drove to the basket. In the fourth quarter alone, he hit five 3. Can Cleveland recreate its strong effort from last game and this time come away with a win despite being a double-digit underdog tonight in Game 2?

Curry and Allen are the only players in National Basketball Association history that have made at least seven 3-pointers in a game multiple times. He says he appreciates greatness in all forms - the Warriors, LeBron James, as well as the careers of Tiger Woods and Serena Williams.

Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 boards for the cold-shooting Cavs, who will now try to gain some momentum back home.

Steph Curry catches fire from deep, going 9-for-17 from deep in Game 2.

Kevin Durant added 26 points, Klay Thompson had 20 and JaVale McGee added 12 to spark the Warriors.

Nemmani won the title during the finals, consisting of 16 spellers, the largest group ever included in the final broadcast round. That's a record number of spellers for the prime-time finals, and it could mean a late-night finish to a longer-than-usual week.

The Cavaliers coach, Tyronn Lue, paid tribute to his players for keeping the game close until the fourth-quarter but admitted the Warriors were the better team. That rang true again on Sunday when Green finished with six points, two rebounds, and one assists on 28.5 percent shooting. As Thompson made his way toward the Oracle Arena tunnel late in overtime with the Cavs' security staff, he could be seen telling Green to meet him outside.

They had trailed after the first quarter of three straight games, starting with Game 6 of the Western Conference finals, and fell behind by double digits in the first half of all three of them. They must focus on unraveling the Warriors in Game 2 by working together.

He also had nine rebounds and seven assists "and set a good tone for us with his defense", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

Instead of pondering the title he didn't win, Calderon is expected about the one he might yet get with Cleveland.

I could be wrong, but I think these two games are going to be emotionally draining for the Cavs - and especially, LeBron James.
