Cavs ignore last year's comeback after another 0-2 hole

Now what can the Cavaliers do to avoid being steamrolled by the Warriors?

The 2017 NBA Finals on ABC - the Golden State Warriors lead the Cleveland Cavaliers 2-0 - is the most-watched since 1998, through two games, according to Fast Nationals from Nielsen.

James: Alright, so, that answers your question.

James was equally spectacular with his own triple-double of 29 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds, but yet again didn't get almost enough help, despite Kevin Love's 27 points and 19 from Kyrie Irving.

As I've said before, it's no knock on Kerr to point out how smoothly the whole operation ran in his 11-game absence, because he's the one who built the structure that made it possible. J.R. Smith has, as a matter of fact, averaged more fouls (2.5 per game) than points (1.5 per game). And when you got great teammates like I do, who allow me to play with my emotions and allow me to be emotional when I'm talking to them, to use my emotions to the better for us, it's easy.

The Cavaliers put together a much better effort in Game 2 of their title trilogy against the Warriors.

Warriors: The Warriors had their first 40-point quarter in the Finals since scoring 41 in the first quarter of Game 6 in 1967 against the 76ers. "You can't take a peek somewhere and lose your man".

How do the Cavs stem the tide?

The series now moves to Cleveland for games 3 and 4 and if the Cavaliers want to make it look somewhat respectable in the series they will have to win game 3 on their home court.

Stephen Curry recorded his first career postseason triple-double with 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. "You guys asked me, 'What was the difference?' And I told you". "But they're a team you cannot - you can't let them go on runs".

They overcame 20 turnovers and a triple-double by four-time NBA MVP LeBron James to win 132-113 in game two at home on Sunday. The Cavs' best shot at getting all three in a slump might just be calling on the powers of Cleveland sports legend Jobu. How do we know this? They just have too much offensive weaponry to corral, and increasing the number of possessions is only going to give that superior weaponry an opportunity to show through. But given what happened last season when the trophy got wrenched from their grasp, they're not resting on their laurels.

"Running around with Steph and chasing Klay and chasing Steph and constantly having to be on alert, it takes a lot out of you offensively", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said of Irving. "We know, trust me, we know". He did not immediately miss any time and went on to lead the Warriors to their first National Basketball Association title in 40 years.

"I don't really care about history too much". Now we have to go back there. Any sentimental boost in any seven-game championship series is obviously of massive value, but in Kerr's case the game-time decision was especially meaningful given concerns he might never be able to coach again.

So are the Cavaliers, but it's more hard for them because they must come up with answers that so far have eluded them. Sunday's Game 2 broadcast peaked with a 14.7 rating from 10-10:15 p.m. ET, according to Nielsen.
