NBA Finals 2017 Cavs at Warriors Game 2

It makes sense for the Cavaliers to push the ball when they create turnovers or off Warriors misses, but if nothing is there they need to pull out and slow it down.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson said he doesn't care his scoring has dropped so dramatically. However, he isn't too anxious about his shooting slump.

"I'm all physicality", Thompson said.

"I have to be better", said the 6-foot-10 Thompson who played 22 scoreless minutes and grabbed four rebounds in Game 1. "But when Kevin Durant has the ball, you don't want to leave him and get to shooters".

Kerr has been out since Game 2 of the Warriors' first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers. First and foremost, then make sure Golden State's sharpshooters have a hand in their face.

As the Cavaliers" "Energizer Bunny', Thompson is relied upon to consistently bring effort defensively and on the glass, and his hustle plays were a major reason for Cleveland storming back from a 3-1 deficit in the Finals past year. But he passed the ball to Curry - who hit a three-pointer. To accomplish this historical goal against the explosive Cleveland Cavaliers is probably more a fantasy than a likely outcome. To a man they said they needed to play with more pace. I'm not a ball handler. "So when you're playing against a unsafe team like we are playing in the Warriors, and they have great pieces, just got to stay disciplined, understand that every possession is all out, and we'll be fine".

The Warriors are a better team than a year ago, and not just because of adding Kevin Durant. We know we're capable of playing a lot better. And his defence is the reason why we we're one of the best defensive teams in the league as well.

"Game One was the feel-out for us, and they definitely took advantage of all our miscues. They're going to make adjustments", Brown said.

As this highly anticipated rematch tipped off at last, the biggest difference from a year ago was clear.

"So, 13-0 and they constantly break records every year", Lue said.

Rihanna clearly stole the show in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, so much that we're still talking about her two days later. "We will have to help out, and knock some shots down from the perimeter, especially me". "I thought he got out in transition, got four or five dunks early and it just kind of opened everything up for him". They were going on a run and he picks up a foul and gets to the line.

But Thompson knows all too well that they can not rest on the laurels of Game 1.

"When you play good defence and Tristan is getting offensive rebounds, that demoralises your defence..."

"We're playing a great team, we're playing the champs".

"If we have that same defensive effort collectively, we'll be really tough to beat". I had two charges - that's aggression, I can take those. Could've probably won by 30, I guess.
