Stephen Curry might have double-dribbled when he beat LeBron James

A sea of yellow floods the Oracle Arena during Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers Sunday.

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".

In addition to the Indianapolis performance, the band added shows in Detroit, Buffalo, Minneapolis, Kansas City, St. The first leg wraps in Cleveland next month, and the tour heads to Europe for a dozen dates beginning July 8.

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.

Two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry added 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in his first finals triple-double. "We know how hard it is to be the best team in the league", Durant said.

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".

The day before the historic gig, the singer attended a local hospital and met some of her fans who were injured in the attack . The event raised more than $9 million for the British Red Cross and was broadcasted around the world.

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.

They countered with better play from their two scoring stars and wore down the Warriors in the next five games. As head coach of the Cavaliers, Brown led Cleveland to the 2007 NBA Finals . "That's what Golden State does".

But the Cavs' margin of error is slim, and they need a near-perfect game to beat Golden State. "They make you pay".
