LeBron, Curry, Durant say National Basketball Association champ won't go to White House

James followed up his 51-point performance in Game 1 with 29 points 13 assists and nine rebounds in a far tamer finals sequel- and much more lopsided- minus the utter craziness of a drama-packed opener three days LeBron, Curry, Durant say National Basketball Association champ won't go to White House

After a couple of days to let the greatness of the 2018 NBA Finals' game opener, the reigning champion Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are back on the court for the much-awaited Game 2 on Sunday night at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California.

James pointed with both hands after his three with 11m 04s remaining got his team within seven, before Curry answered from deep the next two trips down the floor. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world but him could have made those shots".

Bouncing back has been a trademark for LeBron James, the Cleveland superstar who has helped the Cavs go 8-1 at home in these playoffs and 5-1 after losses until the finals.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry walks past fans after Game 2.

The Warriors have yet to comment on the controversy or James' comments, but after skipping the ceremony last year it's assumed that James is right and they'd skip it again this year as well. I'm talking about this series featuring the Warriors and the Cavaliers. "And if we can do that, guys can look in the mirror and live with themselves".

More drama will certainly come in Game 3, which will be played Wednesday in Cleveland.

"There is just a sense that we're all on the same team and nobody cares about whose team it is and all that stuff", Warriors Coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday. "We know it. We'll see if we can do it".

We'll get into the "why" and "how" later, but first, the "what".

Despite the strength in depth in the Warriors' team, Durant's performance - with 43 points and 13 rebounds - had James acknowledging the former Oklahoma City Thunder star as the difference between the two sides for the second year running. We'll get into that, and more, in our Game 2 takeaways. "I'm not surprised. It's typical of him". "I'm sure whoever wins this series won't be going", Durant said. We're used to the dynamic of being ahead in a series and then having everything shift when you go on the road. Curry, sitting in the corner on Smith, came over to "tag" Thompson - that is, brush up against him to slow his roll - and ended up jumping the passing lane, getting the steal.

Curry, a former two-time league Most Valuable Player, said he and his teammates would likely repeat the stance they took a year ago should they successfully defend their National Basketball Association title. "But, for the most part, throughout 48 minutes, you just can't have a bunch of those, especially not against this team".
