The fact that Curry had help, whereas LeBron James didn't, was the story of the match and might be the story of this series.
When asked if it was Curry's best Finals performance, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said: "Yeah, it's hard to think back to all of the games".
The series heads to Cleveland with Game 3 scheduled for Wednesday. "We're going to need that going out on the road".
They'll be looking forward to returning home for game three on Thursday.
Since losing their first game of the 2018 playoffs at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, the Cavaliers have won eight games in a row on their home court.
"We feel like we feed off of our crowd". That should naturally leave space for players with smaller roles to step up, but with the way the roster is constructed and the continual failure to get just about anything out of their bench, the reality of Who the Warriors Are vs. Who the Cavaliers Are is here, and it's clear.More news: Korean Official Plan Summit as Lavrov Meets Kim
And the Cavs will be on home turf for the next two games.
The Cavaliers were the most recent victims of an NBA Finals sweep, being blanked by San Antonio in 2007 in the first finals trip for LeBron James, now playing in an 8th consecutive finals and 9tj overall.
"I'm over the referee s--", he said. They play best when they are doubted. With that said, we have to do a better job of communicating.
"About seven seconds on the clock he just kept going backward, I don't know why, but he just threw it up and I didn't think it had any chance of going in", teammate Klay Thompson said. In the latter, you are reminded that the process is irrelevant. They have seen this strategy for years now, and it has been executed by teams with much more versatility and defensive discipline than the Cavaliers. His dominance has been missed in the Smith and Curry storylines but it will probably play bigger now that the series moves to Cleveland. He deserves all of it, especially after game one. "We should still be uncomfortable with the series as we were in Game 1 and as we were [in Game 2]". Per the excellent Sports Media Watch website, it was the third-least watched of the 19 Cavs-Warriors Finals games, ahead of Games 3 and 4 in 2016.
Curry caught fire during Game 2 Sunday, leading the Warriors to a 122-103 win over Cleveland, repeatedly tossing in deep 3-point shots, in bunches, every time Cleveland tried to make a push.
While his shot - the primary weapon that earned him a $57 million contract following Cleveland's championship season - has been inconsistent for a bulk of this postseason, the Cavs don't have many other options to replace him.
"It was too easy on them", Lue said. "And he's just got to continue taking his shots".
