Warriors vs. Cavaliers, Game 2

Yet, Thompson stepped on the court and played as if nothing happened. They were going to be there on the lineup card every night. All they have to do is take them.

The Cavaliers trail 1-0 to the Warriors in the 2018 NBA Finals.

In seven-and-a-half seasons with the Raptors, Calderon became a standout for the Canadian club, setting an National Basketball Association record by sinking 98.1 per cent of his free throws in the 2008-09 season, when he averaged an National Basketball Association career-best 12.8 points a game.

In 38 minutes, Curry finished with 33 points on 11-of-26 shooting while hitting nine of 17 3-pointers. After posting 51 points on 19-32 shooting, along with eight rebounds and eight assists, James watched as J.R. Smith's blunder at the end of regulation may have cost the Cleveland Cavaliers a legitimate shot at a title.

When asked if it was Curry's best Finals performance, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said: "Yeah, it's hard to think back to all of the games".

It is also about Thompson's toughness.

Cleveland needs much more from its supporting cast.

The all-time leader in 3-pointers made in the playoffs is Ray Allen with 385. "The ankle feels great". Yet Thompson did receive some kind words from Smith.

"I thought we at least made him somewhat uncomfortable at times", Kerr said after the game.

"It's something that you use a lot", Thompson said. "I'm not going to meet you at the bus". The Cavs couldn't get off a shot and lost in overtime. The final 3 of the night for Curry sealed the runaway win, giving the Warriors a 21-point lead. Thompson joked, "it's a good movie". But the veteran reserve forward nailed a huge one from the left corner to push the Warriors' lead to 90-79 with 4.6 seconds left in the third quarter.

"To be on top of that 3-point list is pretty special", Curry said. He's shooting well. You can't say, 'Oh, he should be back because he shot a 94.' You can't say that. "It was like dagger after dagger". It's only natural for him to get tired, to defer to his teammates with the desperate hope that this time they might actually do their jobs.

Yes, Durant isn't the team's singular focus like he might be elsewhere. The Warriors also definitely noticed Thompson's toughness.

In the third quarter, Klay Thompson ran into Curry and both tumbled into James.

"It was a bunch of nothing", Curry told USA TODAY Sports after Game 1 about the sequence.

James fell in the first half, then Green toppled over him like a 230-pound domino, and smacked James in the head with a flailing arm as he skidded past. They know LeBron James is never out of a series. "But he's one of the toughest, if not the toughest guy for sure". "But since we only need four wins to hoist that trophy, the pain tolerance will go up", Thompson said.

Curry had a slow start from the perimeter, making just one of his first five attempts in the first quarter.
