Klay Thompson Expects To Play In Finals Game 2

Klay Thompson Expects To Play In Finals Game 2

It is also the kind of performance that could set Curry up for his first Finals MVP award.

With the Golden State Warriors leading 1-0 in the best of seven 2018 NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers will try to even the series in Game 2 at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California on Sunday, June 3, 2018 (6/3/18).

The two-time MVP broke Ray Allen's record for 3-pointers in an NBA Finals game, hitting nine triples on 17 attempts against Cleveland. He scored 16 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter.

No team in National Basketball Association history has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit to win any best-of-seven series.

Thompson finished with 20 points on 8-for-13 shooting from the field.

LeBron James could move up on a couple of NBA Finals individual lists in Game 2 - but also fall backward in another.

But Golden State star forward Kevin Durant suffered a knee injury that appeared serious and suddenly the Warriors wanted a forward as a precaution. Of course, if Curry ever loses his shooting stroke, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will be there to pick up the slack.

They had trailed after the first quarter of three straight games, starting with Game 6 of the Western Conference finals, and fell behind by double digits in the first half of all three of them.

In other words, LeBron can't do it all himself and the Warriors are probably going to win this series easily simply because James has little help. After posting 51 points on 19-32 shooting, along with eight rebounds and eight assists, James watched as J.R. Smith's blunder at the end of regulation may have cost the Cleveland Cavaliers a legitimate shot at a title.

"From what I saw, he's looking pretty good, pretty happy, pretty upbeat", Curry said. James is working twice as hard, playing 48 minutes in each of the previous two games. @JaredSGreenberg caught up with Steve Kerr ahead of Game 2.

"It's better. It doesn't look better, but the docs told me it's better", James said. Whatever was going through Smith's head, the miscommunication was obvious and highlights the troubles facing Cleveland going into Game 2. You can say something like, 'Meet you at the bus.' I'm gonna keep taking care of my family.
