Durant and Curry combined for 66 points and 18 assists, moving the Warriors three straight wins from becoming the first team to go unbeaten on the way to a title.

Second, the Warriors continued to run more and more pick-and-rolls with Curry and Durant, or Klay Thompson or Durant, putting as much pressure as possible on the Cavs' atrocious defense.

"It's more or less a heart thing, a prideful thing".

Kerr had his hands full with the game, which featured physical play, eight sloppy turnovers by Curry and early foul calls on passionate forward Draymond Green, whose protestations could have triggered at least one technical.

Oakland: Kevin Durant scored 33 points and grabbed 13 rebounds while Stephen Curry added 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists on Sunday as the Golden State Warriors ripped Cleveland 132-113 in a historic second game of the NBA Finals. "They made a lot of adjustments", Kerr said of the Cavs.

The Cavs watched film and vowed to get back to basics and the solid fundamentals that carried them this far, especially on the defensive end.

"I could play much better", he said.

Golden State, which whipped Cleveland 113-91 in Game 1 on Thursday, is holding steady as a 9-point favorite after opening at 8½. "Most of the time it's going to be a touchdown going the other way". But after the game, he said he felt fine and just needed some food and wine two feel better.

The Cavs put up a better fight in Game 2 and come close to the original seven-point spread (it's gone up since Game 1). "We play that same game in Cleveland, there's no way we win".

Durant was utterly dominant 11 months after leaving Oklahoma City last July to join the Warriors, while Curry found a groove once he removed the black sleeve from his shooting arm protecting his tender right elbow.

"We've got to make it much tougher on him", Lue said of Durant.

But even though he is the best on the planet, he is one guy. He needs to do a better job of taking care of the basketball and getting his teammates involved. We could play hard every possession, but can we play smart? "We've got a great opportunity in front of us and we've got to seize it". After two games, Durant is averaging 35.5 points, 11 rebounds, 7 assists, and 2.5 blocks. Golden State closed the quarter on a 16-6 run and never looked back. "We had a tonne of turnovers. But it's definitely great to see him over there and have him talking in the timeouts and out there leading us".

Cavaliers reserve Richard Jefferson compares it to a boxing bout, with the Cavs rising from a knockdown. "Now to say that you're going to get that many open lanes, you can't forecast that". "Going to be punch, counterpunch".

"The points that I gave up off turnovers - in their building - will electrify the crowd and their team and [are] the things that we have to eliminate", Curry said.
