Cavs not looking to slow down pace of Finals with Warriors

After the warp-speed Golden State Warriors overran the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first two games of the NBA Finals, with Durant averaging 35.5 points in the wins, one of the trending topics has been whether James is being worn down in trying guard the 7-footer. It was the second time in the postseason they committed at least 20 turnovers, and yet they scored at least 120 points in both games. They blew us out.

"We literally have never once mentioned 16-0". We can't take bad shots.

Playing in his seventh straight Finals, James is averaging 28.5 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists but it hasn't been enough for the Cavs, who lost Games 1 and 2 by a combined 41 points.

After a record 73 regular-season wins went without a title to cap the effort, the Warrios want to slam the door on another epic comeback.

The Warriors actually had a higher victory margin through two games in the 2016 Finals, but they didn't have Kevin Durant or a fully healthy Stephen Curry then.

"That's a year ago and I don't even know the feeling anymore", LeBron James said.

"We just need our supporting group to be themselves as much as possible", Irving said. The biggest thing for us is we usually haven't gotten off to a great start in this building.

Open, has been runner-up six times. "It wasn't really something that we discussed, because it really wasn't much of a decision". The 46-year-old is running out of chances to complete the career grand slam, making the decision more hard .

"Drive and closeouts is one of their weaknesses, so we've got to do a better job of shooting the three, but if it's not open, driving and closeouts, and then, making the extra pass and finishing at the rim".

Mike Fratello, a former Cavaliers coach, said he would try to slow Golden State down by having the Cavaliers be more judicious with their possessions.

They do now and are playing much better basketball than this time previous year.

"You win two games at home, you haven't really done anything yet", Kerr said. "The best we probably played throughout the year", center Zaza Pachulia said.

The Warriors committed 20 turnovers in Game 2 but simply shook that off with an NBA Finals-record 18 3-pointers in a 132-113 romp. No team in National Basketball Association playoff history has rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win a series.

They are averaging almost 119 points and winning by a record 16.9 per game in the postseason, and they've really picked it up lately. "It's going to be very telling in the series, a huge game for both teams, and we feel like we play great here or we go home".

They embraced the chase a year ago but said Tuesday that they're not thinking at all about 16-0. "We've got to come out ready to fight because they're going to throw everything at us". "It's definitely not something we're focused on". "We got to come out and set the tone early". Otherwise, they would be allowing Golden State to have even more confidence. With this team, you can't relax at all.
