Will Stephen Curry Be Named NBA Finals MVP after Making History?

Do Le Bron Rules exist

Probably the only thing that Stephen Curry doesn't have on the resume is an NBA Finals MVP.

JaVale McGee has played in over 550 games for five different teams during his National Basketball Association career, but the veteran big man has never had more fun than he did in the Golden State Warriors' Game 2 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday. Klay Thompson, who had been questionable to play with a high ankle sprain, scored 20 points and Kevin Durant flew under the radar with 26 points on 10-of-14 shooting.

James followed up his 51-point performance in Game 1 with 29 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds as Golden State focused their defense on getting the ball out of his hands as often - and as quickly - as possible.

For Cleveland to have a fighting chance in Games 3 and 4, they must go back to what has worked for them, playing Kyle Korver.

The 30-year-old maestro scored 16 points in the fourth quarter, answering a LeBron James 3-pointer with back-to-back 3s for a 96-83 lead.

"I don't think we're close to our ceiling, which is good for us", said Warriors forward Draymond Green. ". Once he releases it and he sees the basket, he usually makes it".

She also became the first two-time victor in 2018 as the first 13 events of the season were won by different players. Her confidence shaken, she had another bogey on 12 and the tournament was suddenly much closer than anyone expected.

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said they tried at times to switch a bigger man onto Curry, just to make sure their was a long arm in his face. As a team, the Cavaliers shot a miserable 41 percent from the field and nine of 27 from the three-point line which is a shame because they were only trailing by seven points early in the fourth quarter before Curry sparked the Warriors on a decisive 15-6 run to put the game out of reach. "You know, you can go down the list and kind of say that about everyone". That's nearly six more than he averaged the entire 2017 Finals. I try all sorts of shots at some point or another, but at that point, it's just feel and letting it go, and thankfully it went in. That year, the Cavaliers came back, winning Game 3 and eventually overcoming a 3-1 deficit to take the championship. The Warriors All-Star has never missed a postseason game.

The crowd's gesture was a thinly veiled swipe at his decision in Game 1 to run out the clock and rob his team of a last-ditch effort to win the game before ultimately falling short in overtime.

22/10 - Kevin Love may have had 22 points and 10 rebounds while also totaling one assist, two steals, and one block, but there were times where he could have been much more dominant as well.

Curry opened the game missing four of his first five 3-point attempts in the first quarter as Golden State had a 32-28 lead. "They know how hard it's going to be in Cleveland". Golden State will either be stuck with one of their big guys guarding the perimeter or they'll be forced into giving more minutes to their weak perimeter bench since Iguodala is still recovering from an injury.

How could three of the NBA's best players, all of whom were in the top-nine in scoring a season prior, play for the same team in a league with salary cap restrictions meant to prevent compiling these sorts of powerhouse teams?
