Golden State Warriors: 3 keys for Game 3 vs. Cavaliers

Watch Cavaliers vs Warriors Online NBA Playoffs Live Free Streaming on ABC

The series head to Cleveland for Game 3, which is set to tip off on Wednesday night. When you have few options and your back is against a wall, creativity is one of your few weapons.

They'll be looking forward to returning home for game three on Thursday. "At the end of the day, you can control what you can control". "Unfortunately in this case the referee had a closed look at the point of contact".

"Home-court advantage can be a real thing", said Kevin Love, whose 22 points and 10 rebounds were the Cavs' chief means of Game 2 support for James' 29-point, 13-assist, 9-rebound effort.

LeBron James considers his familiar NBA Finals opponent among the best teams ever. He did all he could do, but there just wasn't anything else that the King could have done in order to lead his team to a win and even the series at 1-1.

Cavaliers: James' first-half line: 15 points, eight assists, seven rebounds, two steals. "Just got to continue to pray to the basketball gods, do what you can to challenge shots and don't let him get the easy ones". Golden State will hope to get Andre Iguodala back for that game, and if they do, the Cavaliers will have a serious uphill battle on their hands.

According to Thompson, Step and LeBron were close during Curry's days at Davidson to his early years in the league.

Remember, the young Celtics were one game away this year from being in the Finals and they were without Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving. "We should still be uncomfortable". He scored 16 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter. Offensively, his shooting, which creates a major distraction and forces attention to shift off King James, is essential to helping the Cavs run a fluid offense.

That was just the start for Curry. They need to tighten up their defensive rotations and communicate a lot better, or the Warriors' buzzsaw will roll as usual. "I don't think so", Lue said.

11-for-11 - Trying to stop four future Hall of Famers at one time is tough. That's exactly what McGee and Shaun Livingston were able to do in Game 2.

McGee finished with 12 points on flawless 6-of-6 shooting (all at the rim). Kevin Durant scored 26 and Klay Thompson, gimpy ankle and all, scored 20. It's as simple as that.

Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers needed to hit the ground running after their demoralizing Game 1 loss but that just didn't happen. Because the Cavs then had to worry about the roll man, Curry had the time and space to feast.

Curry left the game with less than four minutes to go in the game and the Warriors comfortably ahead. Korver must knock down shots, especially from beyond the arc, if the Cavs want to do that. "He has gotten better gradually, but there's no way of knowing for sure at this point". But they made seven of them.

So far, numerous Warriors players have shined (yes, even JaVale McGee).
