The drama began even before Sunday's game, when Kerr - who had not coached the Warriors' previous 11 games after the lingering symptoms from a botched back surgery nearly two years ago worsened two games into Golden State's first-round series against the Portland Trail Blazers - strode into the interview room and declared he was coming back to the sideline in Game 2. The team's 14 straight playoff wins is the longest streak in National Basketball Association history.
"Oh, we have got a plan in Cleveland", he said, tongue-in-cheek. "It definitely is a must win".
Draymond Green has developed a reputation for being a dirty player, and it sounds like the Golden State Warriors star is exhausted of it. "Playing with a lot of energy, playing smart, trying to make them work for everything that they get", said Curry.
The Warriors won the series opener 113-91 and clinched the second game 132-113 to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Finals, leaving the Cavs with no room for error as the series shifts to Cleveland. The biggest, and most obvious difference, between the Warriors of last year and this year is that the Warriors have taken it up a Kevin Durant-sized notch. "We've just got to figure out how we can be better in Game Three".
Citing Losses, Fare Quits Austin as Uber, Lyft Resume Service
Herrera sued Uber last month to compel the company to comply with a subpoena for drivers' names and addresses. Uber and Lyft have 15 days to comply or face charges of contempt and other court-imposed penalties.
After the game James said that despite losing by 19 points, his team played better than in the first meeting. I'm not one of those guys who's like bitter that something bad happens to me.
"He's been around, the last couple weeks especially, giving us input and giving us what he's got", Curry said of Kerr.
The Warriors are now 14-0 in the postseason, but the coach warned against complacency after the Cavs surged back from 3-1 down to win last year's Finals between the two sides. "He's been such a big piece of our success the last three years, obviously", James said. "It's fresh in our minds". They have the best net playoff point differential of all time, having outscored their opponents by 237. The Warriors' stars don't have to play intense fourth-quarter minutes because their games are never close.
Tristan Thompson has been a particular target for the Warriors. "We know that. We have to give them something to cheer for". "We're hoping it's going to be a different story at home".
What Trump's Air Traffic Control Decision Really Means
The airlines say that the latest generation of airliners is ready for an updated system, even if the FAA isn't. The plan to privatise air traffic control was included in Mr Trump's budget proposal.
The game turned when Curry sank a 3-pointer and two free throws, then dribbled impressively around James for a layup to cap a 10-3 run that put the Warriors ahead 83-73 early in the third.
"I would imagine Kyrie's going to come out and have a great game", Love said.
Brown's willingness to accept an assistant's job despite 563 career regular-season wins and 47 in the playoffs underscores his humility.
So maybe we start with just one highlight? "We understand how unsafe they are", he said.
Despite rumors of his return swirling around Warriors practice on Saturday, Kerr's status remained a mystery until just hours before Game 2.
