Cavs not looking to slow down pace of Finals with Warriors

Pammachio Corsino | 09 Giugno, 2017, 01:07

"That's a year ago and I don't even know the feeling anymore, so just mentally, I'm strengthening my mind and getting my mind ready and focused on what tomorrow's going to bring, and so, I look forward to it". James said this morning. "I'm averaging a triple-double in the Finals, I'm pretty good".

The Cavaliers got 29 points, 11 rebounds, 14 assists, three steals and one blocked shot from James, as well as 27 and 19 points from power forward Kevin Love and point guard Kyrie Irving, respectively, but that was not enough to combat Golden State's offense.

Game 3 is set to start at 9 p.m. EDT Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. But after the game, it's no different than going to dinner, having drinks, having wine, or anything else.

In his first two games of the series, Durant has been the leading scorer in both matchups, scoring 38 in Game 1 then a cool 33 in Game 2.

Durant, though, was not on the court last season.

Kevin Durant is growing a little exhausted of questions about his ability to play defense. "We don't play slowdown basketball", Cavaliers forward LeBron James told reporters on Tuesday in Cleveland, site of the next two games.


We are, at most, halfway through the NBA Finals, and most people are ready to cut off play.

Durant's averages over the last four duels: 32.0 points (54.0 percent from the field, 41.4 percent from deep), 10.5 rebounds, 5.5 assists and 2.3 blocks.

James opened Game 2 guarding Durant, but Richard Jefferson and Iman Shumpert also took turns guarding him.

"He took over", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "So just the way he played on the defensive end, the way he played on the offensive end, he's been doing it all playoffs long, but in these Finals, he's really picked it up, and it's been huge for us". "We've got one more to go". When you have two of the NBA's top three players on your team, plus a top three shooter, plus the best defender, the insane breakdowns just don't even feel worth it. He said "They are playing exceptionally well".

NESN.com's Mike Cole and Ricky Doyle attempted to answer that question on the latest episode of "NESN Around", even digging into the widespread infatuation with comparing this year's Warriors to the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls. "I've had a few bad tastes in my mouth from what happened in the Finals, so and I've always had that feeling so it never changed for me".
