The series now shifts to San Antonio for Game 3 on Saturday.
James scored at will in the first half and the Cavs built a 26-point lead.
The Golden State Warriors' rare unbeaten start this postseason doesn't necessarily mean they're on their way to a title.
Finally, Golden State heads to San Antonio up two games to none. At both ends of the floor he was intense and he played to win. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said, "We didn't come to play". "At the end, all we did was what we were supposed to do, we took care of home court".
Any enmity toward Golden State center and public enemy No. 1 Zaza Pachulia for causing the badly sprained left ankle that sidelined Leonard or extra spark to compensate for their missing MVP candidate was not evident.
Andre Iguodala sat out with a knee injury.
He said the help must come often and faster. "We miss him out there, but he'll get healthy and in the meantime it's up to the rest of us to stay ready".
After five straight Spurs points, Patrick McCaw and Curry converted back-to-back 3-pointers, and McCaw's jumper at the 2:35 mark put Golden State over the century mark and in front, 101-70.Читайте также: UK interior minister says health system has recovered from cyber attack
Popovich was taking a stand, he was performing some playoff theater, he was trying to prod his players into something special in Game 2... and what he got was a bunch of Spurs who probably realized that Popovich was so angry because Leonard is so valuable.
"Tonight, it's not what I expected. As a group, they just let themselves down", Popovich said. That's the way I process it. However, I don't give them much of a chance if Leonard is unable to suit up for Game 3. "I'm disappointed. You have to believe". On Tuesday in Game 2, it was Golden State's turn to race out to a big cushion, but this time, the team in front would remain there for the duration of the contest.
All evening San Antonio struggled to get into offensive sets and seemed confused as to where the offense would be generated.
Brown told reporters he was pulled over after ignoring a request to stop at a red light as the Spurs coach rolled towards the Oakland Arena.
The Cavaliers started the second quarter on a 6-1 run, and their 36-20 lead forced the Celtics into their second timeout of the game. "There's nothing else to do". In San Antonio, expect the Spurs to come out with fire in an attempt to swing the momentum of the series.
Kerr attended his second game this series but again watched behind the scenes as he recovers from a May 5 procedure to fix a spinal-fluid leak.
NOTES: The Warriors have won the last nine playoff series in which they took a 2-0 lead. He didn't make his first basket of the game until the 4:55 mark of the second quarter, at which the Spurs trailed by 24.
"I want to see if they match the defensive intensity of Boston", added Webber.
"He's better than when I got in the league, a lot better", Brad Stevens said. "I kind of got lost in the flow of just standing around".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
