Warriors putting on a show vs. Cavaliers

Kevin Durant again impressed as the Golden State Warriors moved 2-0 ahead in the National Basketball Association final series against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

They jumped from an NBA Finals record four turnovers in their Game 1 victory over the Cavaliers to a whopping 20 in their Game 2 victory.

Yeah, all too frequently, the Cavs have spent the first two Finals games chasing Warriors, usually getting to them right after they score.

You can analyze all aspects of the game and it might be just as simple of Durant providing so much for the Warriors on both ends of the floor.

James huffed and puffed for the Cavaliers, but he was unable to prevent consecutive defeats in Oakland in front of Barcelona star Neymar, Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton and New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

The most memorable highlight of the Golden State Warriors' Game 2 win may have been Stephen Curry working LeBron James all over the court before tossing in a layup midway through the third quarter.

"He's a reason why we're able to be who we are", Warriors teammate Shaun Livingston said. Not falling asleep. The loose balls, the 50-50 balls, we've got to get to those and when you don't get to them, they make you pay.

"That's what everyone wants to see, some of the best players in the world go against each other", Klay Thompson said. They forced us to turn the ball over more, which we can't do. "Trust me, we know. And we're going to need to play better to win on the road". What about Curry, averaging 32 points and dropping a triple-double in Game 2?

"Just seeing a lot of bodies", Irving said.

"[This] was a game based on talent, we had a lot of guys who played exceptionally well individually and we played with great energy". So while we can parse the particulars, and marvel at Golden State's splendor, it's two home wins by the favored team. In the 113-91 loss in Game 1, Thompson and Smith combined to make one basket and the Cavs got 25 percent shooting outside of James and Irving.

"His defense was unbelievable, and we needed it especially with Draymond out", Kerr said of Durant.

"Both players are music junkies, and in between workouts they made a decision to kill some time [during a strike] by writing their own lyrics and heading to the booth", ESPN reports.

"We just play smart, aggressive and with joy".

"I don't really care about history too much. If you make a mistake - like I said, we had a turnover, it came from me, and then we had a miscue and the floods opened again".

And in order for them to make a similar comeback after overcoming deficits of 2-0 and 3-1 against the Warriors a year ago, the Cavaliers will need production from Thompson, starting with Game 3 at The Q Wednesday night. We just have to sustain effort over the entire game. According to ESPN, the Cleveland Cavaliers veteran and Golden State Warriors baller once recorded a rap record together, and sources are coming forward to detail how the two made the track.
