The big storyline heading into tonight’s match-up is how the Warriors will bounce back after this weekend’s close loss. Stephen Curry struggled for most of Sunday’s game, shooting 5-23 from the field for a total of 19 points. He ultimately made some clutch plays towards the end of the game, including a layup that would send the proceedings into overtime, but nothing close to resembling the MVP-like performances we have come to expect from him. Curry’s Splash Brother, Klay Thompson, did his best to shoulder the load in game 2 – putting up 34 points on 14-28 shooting. Unfortunately it just wasn’t enough.
The Cavaliers, meanwhile, showed tremendous heart on Sunday night – pulling off an upset victory on the Warriors’ home turf after an absolutely heartbreaking game 1 defeat. LeBron James had 39 points on 11-35 shooting, as well as 16 rebounds and 11 assists. J.R. Smith had 13 points off the bench, but his offensive production was negated – as usual – by some of his extremely dumb fouls at the end of the game.
It will be interesting to see how both teams respond to Game 3 on Tuesday.
