Warriors' Klay Thompson Questionable For Game Two, Iguodala Remains Doubtful

He shot efficiently from the field after shooting 8-of-22 and 1-of-7 from the perimeter in the Warriors' Game 1 win over Cleveland.

It's the fourth straight NBA Finals for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Add those contributions up, and the Warriors offered the kind of offensive balance (28 assists) and intensity they consider necessary for their third National Basketball Association title in the past four years. Curry eclipsed former NBA sharpshooter Ray Allen for most 3-pointers in an NBA Finals game after he made eight in Game 2 of the 2010 NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers.

James followed up his 51-point performance in Game 1 with 29 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds in a far tamer finals sequel minus the utter craziness of a drama-packed opener three days prior. Expect the 27-year-old to be more aggressive in the lane and to play tougher defense on Sunday night.

According to Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania, the Warriors All-Star is receiving "around the clock" medical treatment for a high left ankle sprain he suffered during Game 1 against the Cavaliers.

"I don't want nobody to get suspended", Green said.

Thompson limped off the court but returned to the bench in the first quarter, evoking a real Willis Reed type moment for the sellout crowd. "But as far as working harder, I think I got exhausted once". As that enforcer for our team and Draymond for his team, I think it is what it is.

With the media circus that comes with the Finals, you run into a lot more situations where players scoff at questions or get mad outright at something asked of them. I ain't gonna meet you at the bus. ". Once he releases it and he sees the basket, he usually makes it". 16 of his points came in the fourth quarter, including this ridiculous shot. They know, as well as they played, the next set of games in Cleveland will be harder.

"But you know (in) the summers, you can meet anybody anywhere", he continued. "It's something Thompson developed as a kid, he said, getting beat up in the driveway by his brothers or playing football".

James pointed with both hands after his 3 with 11:04 remaining got his team within seven, before Curry answered from deep the next two trips down the floor.

We'll see how things play out.

We've been spoiled by LeBron's ability to finish through traffic over the course of his career, but on Sunday he looked, well, human.

And Kerr appreciates it from his 6-foot-7 shooting guard, one of the league's underrated players - in the eyes of the general public.

Klay Thompson also started 2 for 2, showing no signs of trouble with his ankle that was sore after a Game 1 collision. The more I watch the replay, it pissed me off. You could count on night after night. "It's just going through a stage right now of recovering".
