Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors tips off on Sunday in Oracle Arena.
All of the games in the series are important but this one may be quite pivotal as either the Warriors can come away with a nice, comfortable 2-0 lead or the Cavs can build some momentum and confidence heading to Cleveland.
The Cavs in general though, will have to be play much better than they did in Game 1, a game the Warriors emphatically won by 15 points.
Golden State was able to defeat Cleveland without Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson having high scoring games yet lead by Shaun Livingston, the Warriors got great production off their bench and are now up 1-0 in the series.
It was not a great start to the Finals for Cleveland as LeBron James played well statistically but needs to be better overall and the Cavs struggled to make shots at the rim. If Cleveland doesn’t respond in Game 2, the Warriors could be back-to-back champions relatively soon.
