Curry, Durant lead Warriors to 2-0 lead with 132-113 rout

Posted June 06, 2017

Kerr returned to the bench to a rousing ovation, waving to the fans while back on the sideline for the first time since Game 2 of the first round against Portland on April 19 because of pain issues stemming from complications after 2015 back surgery. They were in a similar situation a year ago to the Steph Curry-led Warriors. Only former Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson had eight prior finals triple doubles.

Golden State won a league-best 67 games this season.

Together with Curry's triple double, it was only the second time in playoff history that two rivals had managed triple doubles in the same game, the other coming in 1970 by New York's Walt Frazier and Milwaukee's Lew Alcindor, who would later change his name to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Most recently, Stephen Curry rattled off a 50/45/90 season last season on his way to the first ever unanimous MVP.

"We're in the finals".

As a result, the team did not play on Sunday in a game that would send the victor to the tournament semifinals, Farivari said. A Nebraska family says they are angry over the way a soccer tournament treated their 8-year-old daughter's team.

"We ride or die with Kyrie", Love said. "Heading to Cleveland we're gonna have to be a lot smarter". Kevin Love added 27 points, and Kyrie Irving was struggling once again with 19 points but with terrible percentage from the field making only 8 shots of 23.

Durant led the Warriors with 33 points and 13 rebounds, and he hit four of his eight 3-point attempts. "He's one of the greatest to play this game", James said. "So we got to be much better too".

"We're young. We're hungry".

"(He'll say), 'We're better than that, we need to do this, we need to do that.' It's whatever needs to be said. "But it's definitely great to see him over there and have him talking in the timeouts and out there leading us". Probably, but it wasn't blatant enough for the officials to blow that play dead.

But make no mistake, beyond winning titles is a level of greatness the Warriors aspire to reach, a place among the all-time best.

Poor Ariana was moved to tears right in the middle of her ballad and needed to take a 30-second breather to collect herself. Mr Burnham appeared on stage with representatives of political parties, religions and both of the city's football clubs.

What that meant was Golden State wasnt running free all night. As the series went on, and a 3-1 lead slipped away, Curry grew more frustrated.But the Warriors are much more than just Durant, of course."We're going to have to help him out as far as knocking shots down from the perimeter", Thompson said.

"I'm trying not to get wrapped up in that because this is a Finals game, and it's just about going out and trying to win", Kerr said.

Curry and Thompson, who finished with 22 points, also connected on four 3-pointers apiece for Golden State, which shot 51.7 percent overall.

In fact, a player battling injury - Iman Shumpert - could start over Smith in Game 3 Wednesday.

Curry wore his emotions for everybody to see, willing the unblemished Warriors even when Cleveland went on a third-quarter run after that play.

"Even the last game during a timeout, they went on a little run, we missed a couple of shots, and then he's in there basically taking over the huddle", Brown said of a moment in Golden State's 113-91 Game 1 victory.
