Curry shows way in NBA Finals MVP race

  • Curry shows way in NBA Finals MVP race

At home, the Cavaliers shoot 37 percent from three (31 percent on the road) and they outscore opponents by 8 points per 100 (they get outscored by nearly that much on the road).

That frustrating Game 3 performance epitomized Curry's topsy-turvy season.

The rounds of 71 are three strokes lower than the 74-74 that Curry posted in that Web.com tour event in August.

While Stephen Curry seemed to be inspired after an altercation with Kendrick Perkins, some of his Warriors teammates are upset about the Game 2 incident. Game 4 is set for Friday night.

"I'm not going to get into it", he said. We really get up to play at home.

With numbers like that, it's obvious why the Cavs don't want to make that switch, but Cleveland's defensive strategy has only exacerbated Cleveland's lack of defensive discipline and allowed the Warriors to do some simple things to score in half-court sets. That's because the Warriors are as good as we know they are - and they're probably not even going full speed yet.

"We want to continue to be uncomfortable", said James.

Stephen Curry scored 33 points and made a Finals record nine 3-pointers as well as having seven rebounds, eight assists and one steal in Game 2 against the Cavaliers on Sunday.

Game 3 of the NBA Finals will tip off on Wednesday, June 6, 9 p.m. E.T.at Cleveland.

Warriors fans showed appreciation for J.R. Smith's lack of awareness in Game 1 by cheering "MVP" chants as he shot free throws. In fact, Haynes reported that multiple members of the Warriors were "disturbed" by Perkins decision not to move out of the way of Curry and some believed "it was a unsafe play" on the part of Perkins.

The Cavs have to make shots. "I would say that about every one of our guys".

"This team has been down 2-0 in the last series and came back to win it", Klay Thompson said. But the Warriors still have a 2-0 series lead as the series shifts to Cleveland.
