  • 2018 NBA Finals – Game One

J.R. Smith #5 and LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers discuss the play against the Golden State Warriors during the first half in Game 2 of the 2017 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 4, 2017 in Oakland, California.

Stephen Curry has forged another 3-point record to his name.

Curry finished with 33 points on 9-of-17 from 3-point range.

The Game 1 may have been the best opportunity for the Cavs to find a fragment in the Warriors' armor, and there's no doubt that the latter will come out motivated to produce a better performance in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Curry followed soon after with his 7th 3-pointer of the game, a desperation heave with the shot clock expiring, to give the Warriors a 103-89 advantage and the rout was on. Curry's now done it four times, and Allen's done it twice in his career.

George Hill came back from missing a key free throw in Game 1 to score 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting. Those players - Kyle Korver, Jeff Green, and Larry Nance - collectively shot 2-of-11 with 10 rebounds and three assists. In Game 2, he hummed with a 10-for-14 night from the field for 26 points, along with nine rebounds and, impressively, seven assists.

Through two games of the 2018 Finals, Curry is making a pretty serious case that he should check off that box.

"He makes tough shots, that's what he does", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

It's kind of their M/O and Bethesda Game Studios has had a ton of time to work undercover on this since Fallout 4 released. In the background you can hear the song " Take Me Home, Country Roads ", by John Denver which was released in 1971.

His reaction in the final seconds of an overtime loss to Golden State demonstrated the frustration Thompson and all the Cavaliers felt about a game they were close to winning in regulation. Steph Curry paced Golden State with 29 points, nine assists and six rebounds. James is working twice as hard, playing 48 minutes in each of the previous two games.

We'll see what the Cavs have left.

Coach Steve Kerr remains optimistic the 2015 Finals MVP will play at some point in the series.

Smith didn't seem to let the mistake affect his confidence heading into Game 2.

After first saying he knew the game was tied, Smith backtracked saying, "I can't say I was sure of anything at that point".

"It's better. It doesn't look better, but the docs told me it's better", James said.

Forgetting those final few seconds of Game 1 needs to be a priority for the Cavs.
