Cavaliers wearing black jerseys for Game 2: 2017 NBA Finals

05 June 2017

Smiling, cracking jokes and looking more comfortable than he has in recent weeks, Kerr declared himself ready to be back on the bench for Game 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"I think it would be deflating for anybody if someone was getting tomahawk dunks like that", Klay Thompson said.

And though the Cavs were plus nine in rebounds, they did give up 14 offensive boards to the Dubs which lead to 18 second-chance points.

Durant matched his postseason career high with 38 points in Game 1 to go with eight rebounds and eight assists, becoming the first player to post a 38-8-8 or better since Kobe Bryant went 40-8-8 in the 2009 Finals against Orlando. Draymond Green had 12 points, six rebounds and six assists playing all game in foul trouble and Shaun Livingston scored 10 off the bench. "Implore them to win it for me because it's not important for them to win it for themselves". They are obviously trying to get to the ball as much as possible and I expect them to play even more physical on Sunday. He attended the pregame news conference and said he had not yet told his players that he would be back coaching.

Thompson ignited it with a three-pointer followed by another jumper. "On one hand, Mike has to coach the team as he sees though it's his team".

Unless that changes quickly, Cavs-Warriors III could end up being a much shorter series than the first two editions of the Finals trilogy that the teams split.

The US State Department said it is "concerned by the violent incidents involving protestors and Turkish security personnel". This is not the first time that Erdogan's entourage has been embroiled in a physical fight with protesters on US soil.

Attles received the Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement Award on Sunday night.

Slowing down the Warriors killer transition offense is a must and requires communication amongst the Cavs as they hustle back down the floor. Game 3 is Wednesday in Cleveland where the Cavs will look to regain the magic that helped them overcome deficits of 2-0 and 3-1 in last year's Finals.

"The intention is to coach tonight and the rest of the series", said Kerr, who last coached in Game 2 of the Warriors' first-round playoff series against Portland.

"When we get stops, we have to get out. It doesn't make a difference what jersey you wear". Kerr has been out since the Game 3 of the Warriors' first-round series vs. the Trail Blazers.

Kerr has been sidelined since the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs after experiencing complications from back surgery.
