Warriors reportedly irked at Perkins for Curry run

After all, he is 3-5 in the Finals but is making his eighth straight Finals appearance. Kevin Durant bolted from Oklahoma City to join the cast last season.

They did not. And it was because Durant wasn't just his best self on Wednesday night.

Curry, despite being a two-time NBA Champion, has yet to take home the Finals MVP trophy. Yet, the officials had their work cut out for them on a few calls.

Afterward, the defending champs could be heard loudly celebrating inside their locker room, perhaps a warmup for a bigger party to come. "It's obviously harder to get here than performing when you get to this stage, because you can play off adrenaline and knowing the end is near helps", said Warriors guard Klay Thompson. But I think having guys that get so excited about a good play, a good block or a good rotation or a good shot or dagger shot. He thought Curry's lone 3-pointer in 10 tries - one that put the Warriors up by four with 2:38 remaining - carried more weight, and he might have been right. Oh yeah, there would be one big blunder of blunders. On Twitter, creative captions flew like three-pointers. They want the other Cavs to have to beat them.

J.R is once again J.R.

. While with the New York Knicks in 2014, he got the offensive rebound with less than 24 seconds left in a tie game. Instead, he did what shooters do and shot. "We're just going to focus on what we can do to win Game 3". The problem was there was a live play going on and a wide-open dunk was the result. "First year, it was 1-1", Kerr said.

Curry and his fellow Splash Bro, Klay Thompson, are now tied for the most three-pointers made in a single postseason at 98, a record that will likely stand for a very long time (unless one of the two breaks it themselves).

Cleveland got another excellent game from Kevin Love who scored 20 points to go along with 13 rebounds and three assists. All he had to do was do what he does best....shoot the ball.

The Warriors are listed as heavy betting favorites and it's easy to see why after taking a look at how handily they beat up on Cleveland in the first two games of the series. A pathetic outing from the reserves with some players doing worse than others.

The Cavaliers wasted another strong game from LeBron James, who racked up his 10th NBA Finals triple-double - 33 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds.

"Just for him, just as a person, to be healthy and be able to play in The Finals now that we're here, I think that would mean a lot to him and give us an emotional boost as well".

Game 3 has to be everything for the Warriors as well.

It is no secret that beating Golden State is a rather tall task. On this night, Steph would be Steph and hit from anywhere and everywhere setting a Finals record with nine three-pointers.

After watching the ball swish through the net, a deadpan Durant casually walked to the Warriors' bench while Curry was in his face yelling ecstatically and Draymond Green behind him cursing with joy. The Warriors have checked those boxes long enough to make this impressive run, which will nearly surely include another ring over the next week.

Game 4 is Friday night in Cleveland.

In round 2 in their Eastern Conference Semifinal series against the Toronto Raptors, the Cavaliers swept them, defeating them 4-0. The problem here is that the Warriors are not the Celtics. The NBA also said Green was guilty of a lane violation on a missed free throw by George Hill. Not tonight Cleveland, not tonight.
