Warriors shoot well, Cavs stay close in Game 2

Warriors not expecting Le Bron James and Co. to lose edge Warriors shoot well, Cavs stay close in Game 2

There were miscues aplenty, most notably J.R. Smith's offensive rebound in the final seconds of regulation that he dribbled back toward half-court in a tie game rather than shooting for a chance to win it - later insisting he knew the score, though that remains a huge mystery.

Which means that if anyone can forget Game 1, it's J.R. Smith.

This was something which James emphasised when talking to the media about the incident, as he said: "We've got to move on".

Here is the replay where you can see just how ideal the pass was.

Hood may have felt pressure at Duke, but being on LeBron's team can not compare because of the stuff that goes along with being one of James's teammates.

"I hope so", Lue said with a laugh. Of course the Warriors pulled away in overtime for the win in a game they should have lost, not even counting the missed calls referees made in the closing minute that helped secure the Warriors the win. "I've always been the one guy who's the butt of the jokes, or that one guy who does something insane and everybody's got to look at or whatever the case may be".


But his most interesting stint lasted ever-so briefly between the Lakers and Atlanta when he spent two hours with the Warriors.

"I didn't realize how much you use your ankle until you hurt it", said Thompson after the game.

"The Mistake" in Thursday's game was a shocking lapse and the Cavs never recovered, losing in what James said was "one of the toughest losses" of his career. After the game Smith described his performance in one word: "terrible". We're going to bottle up all that frustration from Game 1 and carry it on to Game 2.

The boxscore shows Curry finished with 33 points, including an NBA Finals record nine 3-pointer. The team is officially listing him as questionable for Sunday's game. And in the immediate aftermath, it appeared Smith said to James on the court that he thought the Cavs were leading - something he denied afterward.

In other words, despite his role in how Game 1 unraveled for his team, Smith says he is prepared to turn the page to Sunday's Game 2 and look for a split at Oracle Arena to open up the series.

Calderon became a journeyman over the past six seasons, playing for Detroit, Dallas, New York, the Los Angeles Lakers, Atlanta and finally joining the Cavaliers as a free agent signing last July. The stuff that comes out of it, you lose a game and everyone talks about it on TV the next day. But we've got to focus on Game 2 now. We beat Houston on the road in Game 1 and the narrative was, you know, series is over.
