Watch NBA Finals Game 2 on WatchESPN: Warriors v Cavaliers

Jun 05, 2017, 07:14

Meanwhile, according to ESPN Stats and Information, Golden State's 13-0 record in the postseason this campaign sees it drawing level with the 1988-89 Los Angeles Lakers and 2016-17 Cleveland Cavaliers for the longest postseason win streak in National Basketball Association history.

It was Cleveland 14, Golden State 13 after just the first 4:13 of the first quarter.

Thompson then pushed the ball ahead to Durant who with two dribbles waltzed into the lane for wide-open dunk after JR Smith decided that leaving Curry unattended for a wing three would be a bad decision. The head coach stepped away from in-game duties after the Warriors beat Portland that night, citing a worsening of the health condition that has plagued him for much of the past two years.

"They were really good on both sides, being in attack mode - whether it was playing downhill [on offense] or on the defensive end pushing us out, making the catches tough for us". Kerr's picture was shown on the videoboard as the fans stood and cheered.

Now Kerr is back, facing the very team that stormed back from a 3-1 deficit in last year's Finals to steal a championship.

Steve Kerr was back on the bench for the Warriors in this one, which was great to see and gave the Warriors and emotional boost. Golden State equaled its four turnovers from Game 1 in the initial 5:12.

There are some impressive streaks that merit some mention going into Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Cleveland had worn its blue jersey on the road for its first eight games.

Despite being unable to take part in games, Kerr continued to take a hands-on approach during practice and film sessions. And so are Cleveland's black jerseys.

Cleveland will wear its black, t-shirt style jerseys for Game 2 of the 2017 NBA Finals. But we've still got to play. But just like in Game 1, the Cavs bench struggled mightily.

If Cavs are to emerge victorious, they also need to make sure that they are tight on Curry and Durant, and stop them from scoring easy baskets.

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue says it's good to have Golden State coach Steve Kerr back on the sideline for the NBA Finals. He was experiencing painful migraines and nausea that were complications of back surgery he underwent almost two years ago.

While James has delivered - he had a triple-double Sunday night in Game 2 - it hasn't been almost enough against the superstar-laden Golden State Warriors.

Tip-off is scheduled for at 8:00 p.m. ET.
