NBA Finals ratings highest since Jordan's last title in 1998

It has been said for the entirety of the NBA Finals thus far: The Golden State Warriors are now a different team. "I think our guys feed off of it", Richard Jefferson said. Deron Williams has played 33 minutes and scored zero points through two games. "Taking out various fees, including the ones the Warriors have to pay their vendors, it's a safe assumption that the team will net half its gross total".

Unfortunately for the network, the Warriors haven't lost in the playoffs yet. But I feel the last four or five years I've definitely continued to get better and better, and smarter. And yet, after two games, that is exactly what has happened and the Cavs now find themselves down 2-0 and seemingly in danger of being swept out of the Finals.

He is averaging 26.9 points per game - less than two points behind Stephen Curry - and has defended James extremely well.

The Cavaliers' power rating isn't any worse than it was at this time previous year. Asked what they need to do differently this season, Kerr said: "Allow ourselves to settle in". "But they're a team you cannot-you can't let them go on runs".

I've seen people calling the Cavaliers soft or questioning if some of the guys on this squad, the same guys who won a ring last season, have what it takes.

The Warriors have outscored Cleveland by 41 points through two games. How do they stop the avalanche in front of them? And they make no apologies for it.

There's a part of me that relishes the surliness in James' postgame interviews after Game 2 because of what it means. They are playing for a title. This is about us playing defense, us playing the right way, us making second and third efforts, which, you know, hasn't been happening at the rate we would have liked. Or, in many cases, give them just the jolt they need to put a game out of reach for good. But that Warriors team had Harrison Barnes instead of Durant.

As we attempt to digest Durant's two-way evisceration of the Cavs, KD has flipped the script on the National Basketball Association world; the Warriors are indeed going on a ride, but Durant is the one driving.

Reports had surfaced in the time between the end of Sunday's Game 2 and availability on Tuesday that Lue was considering changes to his game plan, namely a swap of JR Smith and Iman Shumpert in the starting lineup. And I thought that gave them confidence, gave their crowd confidence. Golden State won in 2015.

Sunday night's Game 2 caused concern among National Basketball Association fans and Cavilers fans alike who were wishing for a competitive series, as it looks like a sweep in the making.

- If the Saskatchewan Roughriders are going to make the playoffs, who will they catch? If you don't win, and someone says he's the best player in the world, what do you get from that?

"I don't think there's many teams in the league who their backup is better than their starter", Green said. We were much more physical.

The Cavaliers forced 20 turnovers compared to a finals record-tying four in game one, for all the good it did them.

Game 6: Cavaliers 115, Warriors 101.

"If we're locked in on the defensive end, we'll score enough points", Green said. I know the offense gets most of the attention but our players, they work at it, collectively, individually.

"Down 0-2, going home, you have to live with those odds".
