Tristan Thompson Storms Out of Interview After Being Asked This Question
- Drew Tucker
After Game 2, that chatter ceased. The 27-year-old center has failed to limit Curry's production on the offensive end, especially when he shoots the ball from the three-point range. He's averaging 31.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 8.5 assists per game. George Hill has pitched in with 12 points, but Kevin Love is 2 for 10. They shot 59.5 percent in the first half despite going 6 of 19 on 3s.
Do the Cleveland Cavaliers have a real answer for Stephen Curry? That's exactly what McGee and Shaun Livingston were able to do in Game 2.
The Warriors are playing from ahead for a change. The Warriors shot 65 percent from the field. And there's only one team that could've feasibly stopped them - the Houston Rockets, who just lost to them in seven during the Western Conference Finals. The Golden State point guard had four ankle injuries this season, and his early years were marked by some serious ones. That's what Golden State wants.
It's been a rough beginning to the start of the series for the Cavs, as many have said Game 1 was stolen from them.
Golden State romped to a 110-77 victory in 2016 and won 132-113 past year.
LeBron James is appearing in his 237th postseason game, tying Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for fourth place on the career list. That's an NBA Finals record. Did someone expect James to say he appreciates the tough battles with the Warriors while his team is losing? 50-plus points in Game 1? In a post-game interview, a reporter asked Thompson about being "helpless" in defending the two-time MVP, which doesn't sound good for the Cavaliers' big man.
But we've heard all those things before - until the Warriors show that they're "locked in from the jump on the defensive side", as Green said Sunday, it's empty rhetoric.
He proved that he was human at times Sunday night and still was just one rebound away from a triple-double.

"I'm optimistic Andre will play at some point in the series", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on Sunday.
Iguodala is the best defender the Warriors have when it comes to holding LeBron James in check.
The Warriors got a key Game 2 spark from JaVale McGee. They're good. They're great, actually. "But as far as working harder, I think I got exhausted once".
"When I'm switching on him, I'm guarding him", Thompson said before leaving, via USA Today Sports. But will this finally be the year the National Basketball Association recognizes Curry as the Finals MVP?
We'll probably know in two, three games tops. Klay Thompson (55) needs two 3-pointers to pass Robert Horry into third place.
Golden State opened the series as 10/1 favorites to win the series.
