Cavs ready for war, not for Curry daggers


PhilBoxing.com




THE Cleveland Cavaliers, as they had vowed, tried to wage full-scale battle in Game Two of the NBA Finals.

LeBron James, with his original might, was playing close to super again. He was on top of the Cavs? repeated uprising.
LeBron led several furious assaults and created suspenseful moments.

In at least three instances in the third period of Game Two, the early Golden State lead was chipped down to only five points.

**

There were thrilling chances to move closer and catch up.

But each time Cleveland would try to wholly ramp up, they would be pushed back.

They would fizzle out, stunned and scattered like victims of a daytime ambuscade.

**

?You could see pain and frustration in their faces,? observed Draymond Greene, the lead Golden State defensive workhorse, of the hapless Cavaliers.

?It sucks to lose,? cried LeBron. ?You give it your all, and you come out on the losing end.?

Warrior team coach Steve Kerr could only swoon, calling his top gunman Stephen Curry tremendous and fantastic.

?Nine threes, and he seemed to hit the big one each time we needed one,? Kerr added.

**

Curry, 30, clearly surpassed himself in setting a new record of nine triples in a finals game.

He was shooting and scoring with sure and quiet integrity.
In the end, it would come as a surprise that he was only 9-for-17 in setting his record.

Curry loomed supreme and luminous all night long, his great unerring shots landing like live daggers on the back of opponents.

**

Curry would not be carried away. He was the first to say there would be no repeat of his one-man masterpiece once the humbled Cavaliers get to go home and regroup.

?The big fight has just started,? said Coach Kerr.

Will Golden State be ready for daggers, in case mighty LeBron decides to spring his own ambuscade?
