Golden State Warriors among best teams I've seen, says LeBron James

They wore the black shirts while winning Game 7 of the NBA Finals previous year, and will try the look again Sunday against Golden State. "Thirty-eight, eight, eight, zero turnovers?"

"Whether it's Mike or me, we're doing the same stuff". We're going to seek him out, get him the ball, and guys got to defend him. "I just try to stay locked in.... trying to do my best to be there for my teammates and to play up to my standards as an individual as well", he said.

However, Durant won't have it as easy in Game 2. "I couldn't really care less", James said. "And we forced them to 20 turnovers, and they still beat us pretty good, so we got to be much better, too".

Cavaliers forward Kevin Love says greater effort will be coming in game two. When it comes to Love, he is listed with an over/under of 17.5 points for Game 2 and an over/under of 12.5 rebounds tonight. He traveled with the team while dealing with his back problems.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Here's something you never thought you would hear: After scoring a postseason-low 91 points in a Game 1 loss in the NBA Finals, the Cleveland Cavaliers coaching staff found itself cajoling JR Smith to shoot more, not less.

Their record? 8-1 in those games so Cleveland needs to keep everything at their pace, and not gift a 2-0 lead to the home side.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue has set his players a task - stop Durant from driving through the paint and dunking at will with nobody even around him.

But it was Durant who left an indelible imprint on the game, establishing his presence inside early but also managing to make a few from beyond the arc. Really good. I'm happy for him, happy for his family. "But Golden State can play better". "If I score six points a game and it gets us four wins and an National Basketball Association championship, I can do that every year". You look at the matchup with Durant and LeBron, LeBron's probably the only one on Cleveland who can guard Durant.

Reserves Deron Williams and Kyle Korver who were picked up mid-season specifically for this moment, failed to trouble the scoreboard and will need to do more offensively if Cleveland is going to challenge the Warriors. We know how hard it is to be the best team in the league.

Cavaliers are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. The Warriors went 39-4 under Luke Walton. Once Golden State got rolling, it was a raucous celebration inside of the arena.
