ABC's NBA Finals Up Slightly In Viewership

But, ahem, they've done that part before. "Like I said, we're anxious about the series right now, so we're just trying to stay in the moment".

The Warriors are crushing them by a combined 41 points through two games, with the series set to shift to Cleveland for Game 3 at 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Those viewers have been treated to pure dominance through two games.

Duh. But Durant's significance in this series might not be for the reason you think. "Now, it's time for us to go home and win Game 3". James coughed up eight turnovers, while Love shot poorly in Game 1 and Irving the same on Sunday. "And it was probably the key to the whole game".

Thompson's fellow splash bro Stephen Curry quietly picked up the first triple-double of his playoff career, logging 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.

Two games into the NBA Finals, the biggest names on the marquee are living up to the billing, though Warriors superstar Kevin Durant is making an impressive case for being equal to, and maybe above, Cavaliers superstar LeBron James.

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 to keep up with the Warriors' depth.

An overlooked aspect of Curry's game is his movement away from the ball. It happened again Sunday.

Curry provided Kerr more than a glimpse of his greatness from up close after the coach had been watching games from the locker-room while speaking to his players beforehand and at halftime.

"Defensively, (Irving) has to do a lot more", Lue said.

"If you make a mistake".

This year, it's 4.0 points and 4.0 rebounds.

Golden State improved to 14-0 this post-season and is trying to become the first group to go unbeaten all the way to a title.

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.

Zaza Pachulia (27) fights for the ball against Thompson in the first quarter of Game 2.

Warrior's Draymond Green (L) and Kevin Durant. He kicked LeBron James in the groin to earn a suspension for Game 5.

"It's easy to say we can look at the film and make adjustments, but overall we just - as an entire unit - we need to play better", said Love. "I'm not worrying about the officials and all that". "And if going home to Cleveland and playing in front of our crowd isn't enough for you, then you might as well go home".

Second of all, arena profit and Warriors jersey sales are amongst the best in the league for the Warriors and should provide some financial relief for the significant losses from luxury tax and player salary. Iguodala needed 24 shots to score as many points over that time frame, and Green's Game 7 eruption coincided with the struggles of Curry and Thompson.

The 51-year-old was on the bench for the first two games of the Warriors' opening-round series against Portland, but turned over the reins to assistant Mike Brown for the remainder of the Trail Blazers series, as well as the four-game sweeps over the Utah Jazz in the Western Conference semifinals and San Antonio Spurs in the Western finals.
