Curry, Durant lead Warriors to 2-0 lead with 132-113 rout

But he didn't get it off. Durant rose with those tarantula arms and ate Love's hook shot, palming the ball and starting a fastbreak the other way.

James said that despite losing by 19 points, his team played better that in the first meeting.

All James wanted to think about was getting some food and wine on the flight home.

Curry recorded his first career postseason triple-double with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, helping Golden State, which won Game 1 by 22 points, take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

"I thought with the game plan we had, we tried to execute it as close as possible", James said. And we forced them into 20 turnovers, and they still beat us pretty good. "So they won two games; now we got to go home and regroup". His personal record against James before becoming a Warrior was 4-17, including the 2012 Finals, in which James and the Miami Heat defeated the Thunder in five games - despite Durant posting individual numbers generally superior to those of James.

How do the Cavs stem the tide? Game 3 is Wednesday in Cleveland where the Cavs will look to regain the magic that helped them overcome deficits of 2-0 and 3-1 in last year's Finals.

'Ronaldo Final' will go down as one of Champions League greats
You can see the best defenders against probably the best strike force, so I think it is going to be a fantastic game. Real Madrid is the European champion again, and Cristiano Ronaldo was the star again.

The Cavs are never to be counted out and they are going home, but they are going to have to find another level if they want to make this one a series. "They're a different team". "That's all the motivation we need", Green said. "When we're going off and coming off into isolation, they're bringing a few extra bodies to crowd the lane".

James' averages: 27.0 points (50.0 percent from the field, 38.1 percent from deep), 11.7 rebounds, 7.0 assists and 1.0 block. "We could play hard every possession, but can we play smart?"

LeBron James struggled to put a positive spin on Cleveland's performance against Golden State on Sunday after they suffered another mauling in Game Two of the NBA Finals series. But given what happened last season when the trophy got wrenched from their grasp, they're not resting on their laurels.

Note: Steve Kerr, who had been sidelined by constant pain because of complications following a pair of back surgeries almost two years ago, returned to coach the Warriors after more than six weeks and plans to coach the remainder of the NBA Finals. "We know, trust me, we know".

We've crunched the numbers at the Daily News, and there's a solid chance this year will represent the worst National Basketball Association playoffs under the modern system. Now we have to go back there.

"You take one of the best teams that we had ever assembled previous year, that we saw in the regular season and in the post-season, and then in the off-season you add a high-powered offensive talent like (Durant) and a great basketball IQ like that, that's what stands out", James said. He made 6 of 9 shots when guarded by James, who otherwise imposed his will on the game. "I love being with the players and staff, so it's fun to be back up here".
