Warriors' Iguodala expected to play in Game 3

  • LeBron James and Kevin Durant

"(Kevin Durant) roam freely".

He did it to be on the big stage, to get an opportunity to take and make the biggest shots and to stare down James and the NBA's elite.

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala will be a game-time decision for game three of the NBA Finals but has a "good chance" of playing, according to head coach Steve Kerr. Nothing worked. But with Durant doing whatever he wanted, Curry was able to bide his time and settle for spacing the floor for Durant.

After a poor shooting night in Game 1, Kevin Durant bounced back in emphatic fashion with 26 points on 10-of-14 shooting, while also posting nine rebounds and seven assists. Curry said that the Warriors are prepared to face the rowdy crowd at Quicken Loans Arena.

"I don't really think about us being up 2-0 because a series can turn so fast", Durant said.

KD wasn't the Cavaliers' only problem. I know that K.D. had a - had one of his games that will go on his highlight reel and one that was incredible even by his standards. Francona, a Cavs season-ticket holder and avid hoops fan, has been excitedly counting down the days before the game. They whipped the Warriors on the boards (47-37). Many of those uncontested. "We watched tape. We watched film and see the things that we can get better at, very minor things".

"Just got to be better", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said tersely when asked about the defensive issues.

Officials warned the public to stay away from the plume because it can irritate skin and eyes and make it hard to breathe. Kilauea , standing at 4,091 ft (1,247 metres) tall, has now been erupting for 34 days in a row, the longest since 1955.

If the Cavaliers can't beat the Warriors on a night their shooters are this off... it's a bad sign. Right now, the majority appears to believe that James is on his way out of Cleveland, and he will obviously have a lot of suitors. Every other active player combined have three.

LeBron was brilliant early in the game, being aggressive and attacking downhill, getting into the lane and not settling for threes.

Durant said the similarity with last year's shot - a moment that helped define his first championship - didn't occur to him. But with just under three minutes left, the Warriors started to take control. He's still making plays and the Warriors clearly need him to finish what they've started in this series without him.

James was fouled while scoring after Cleveland didn't attempt a free throw in the first half, when it led by as many as 13 points.

Hood had a rough go against the Warriors in the playoffs previous year, making just 1 of 15 3s for the Jazz. He kept the Warriors close with his shooting (well, that and the off-ball movement that continues to lead to lay-up after lay-up for the Warriors).

Durant scored 24 points, the only Warriors player in double figures in a foul-plagued, poor-shooting first half for Stephen Curry.

Durant also is confident the battle-tested Warriors will be ready to play the next two games in a less-than-welcoming venue. After what the Cavaliers have experienced this season, a 2-0 deficit in the Finals against a star-studded Warriors squad on the cusp of being stamped as a modern-day dynasty seems manageable.
