Cavs ignore last year's comeback after another 0-2 hole

Warriors coach Kerr returns for Game 2

Warriors coach Kerr returns for Game 2

Golden State Warriors went one step closer to clinching the 2017 National Basketball Association crown after they beat defending champs Cleveland Cavaliers 132-113 in the second game of the finals played on Sunday at Oakland, California.

"I'm feeling better", Kerr told reporters after the Warriors eased to a 2-0 series lead against the defending champion Cavaliers in a repeat of the last two NBA Finals.

Asked if he relished the rare chance to go one on one with James, Curry said, "You don't get into one-on-one matchups, especially on this stage because you get distracted from how you're supposed to be playing".

Meanwhile, the Golden State Warriors will be looking to take a commanding 3-0 series lead after flexing their muscle in Game 2.

But we are so certain we know how this is going to down this morning, just like we were absolutely certain past year. I get in a a lot of extra work in between games and on off days. Kevin Durant finished with 33 points, 13 rebounds and six assists. This time around he's 3-for-3 and playing with no fear, matching James' triple-double with his own 32-point, 11-assist, 10-rebound effort.

"They play well at home", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

Golden State's final tally of 132 points was the most scored in a Finals game since the 1987 Lakers poured in 141 points in a Game 2 win over the Celtics.

After the game, Green said Kerr's return was a positive for the team but added that he coached them so well through 82 regular season games that they could implement his plans without his physical presence. "So I think we will be ready to go".

The Cavs began to turn things around last year after being outscored by 48 points in the first two losses in Oakland - seven more than this year. After two games, this one has been about only the Golden State Warriors.

"They're going keep to coming, man", Curry said.

Golden State improved to 14-0 this postseason and is trying to become the first group to go unbeaten all the way to a title.

"I'm not going to take a step back", Kevin Durant said. This time, the Cavs played markedly better and the Warriors committed 20 turnovers, and still won by 19.

The Warriors will be happy with him stuffing the stat sheet as long as they can pull off wins on the road, since players like James are hard to stop altogether, a team can only hope to contain him. Durant knocked a three-pointer late in the fourth quarter to put the Warriors up by 21 and then he stared down a spectator in Rihanna's area.

"Right now, it means nothing, but it will mean something", said James.

Ten years ago, Barnes was a part of the "We Believe" Golden State Warriors who stunned the No. 1 seed Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.

"I don't know about this, but Rihanna just walked in front of me", Van Gundy said as his fellow commentators started laughing.

NOTES: Warriors coach Steve Kerr hadn't been on the bench since Game 2 of the Warriors' first-round sweep over the Portland Trail Blazers. It was James' 8th Finals triple-double, tying Magic Johnson (8) for the most all time.

Kyrie Irving scored 24 points in the opener and Love had a big day in Game 2, but starters Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith have been almost invisible and the bench has offered little help. Instead, Golden State remains a ideal 14-0 on the postseason and improved to +16.9 point differential, which will set an all-time record if maintained.
