Steph Curry Sets NBA Finals Record with Nine 3s in Game 2
- Dana Schwartz
"I'm optimistic Andre will play at some point in the series", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on Sunday. And, of course, 73 was off the charts in '16 - and didn't protect Golden State that year after all.
Adding Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to their crew - which featured president Danny Ainge, head coach Brad Stevens, and a group of players now playing elsewhere thanks to the Celtics" massive roster shake-up since then - the Celtics were hoping the pitch from "The G.O.A.T' would help convince Durant that Boston was the place to truly cement his National Basketball Association legacy.
James followed up his 51-point performance in Game 1 with 29 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds in a far tamer finals sequel - and a much more lopsided one - minus the utter craziness of a drama-packed opener three days prior.
Curry, all of 6 feet 3 inches and 190 pounds, turned quickly and barked in the face of the 6-10 Perkins. Then, JR Smith's now viral blunder - where he caught the offensive rebound and dribbled out behind the arc with a last second pass back to Hill who missed a three - upset Cavs fans everywhere.
Wednesday and Friday are those more important games.
That he is, and now the Warriors find themselves up 2-0 on the Cavaliers.
The Cavaliers were one Durant three-pointer in the final minute away from possibly making the series in 2017 2-1.

Swish, while he shot the ball plenty of times, wasn't shooting many swishes in Game 2.
But the defending champs only pushed to 58 victories this season, a number that the Cavaliers could have reached if not for all their regular-season hiccups.
The Cavs switched everything on the pick and roll and the Warriors took advantage of the matchups. And they happen to be 8-1 at Quicken Loans Arena in these playoffs.
"Absolutely not. It sucks to lose", James said.
The Cavs will be going back home for Games 3 and 4, trying to put these past two games behind them - but they will need to make the most of their opportunities if they hope to make this a series. This is the last team in the world you want to relax against.
"At the end of the day, if you don't give effort and you don't play hard, you're never going to give yourself a chance to win", he said.
Anything James can draw from three consecutive years of falling behind 0-2?
