Warriors have chance to clinch NBA title at home

Noah Ferguson | 13 June, 2017, 11:02

Add to that the fact that the Cavaliers know they face an uphill battle to come back and beat Golden State, and I think the odds have swung heavily in favor of the team from the Bay.

But coach Steve Kerr, who only returned to the team in time for game two of the finals after a period of medical leave to deal with complications arising from back surgery, joked afterwards: "We have very little talent actually, it's mostly coaching!"

Much of the work on that will fall to Cavs guard Kyrie Irving.

With Klay Thompson also falling short with only 13 points to his posted 19.5, that meant three of the six players with totals all around town - Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love being the others - went under. They were eight-point favorites despite having to play without suspended forward Draymond Green. A key player the past two years because of his relentless rebounding and hard-nosed play, Thompson had been mostly invisible the first three games with just 11 rebounds. We did a good job of that. "We're going to earn it". With the Oracle crowd going insane tonight, the home team's running game will return and that is the key in beating Cleveland's older and slower defense.

After getting his own back this time around, Durant said: "He averaged a triple-double - you just can't stop the guy - but we got him".

Irving scored 40 points in the Game 5 win at Golden State a year ago, hit the tiebreaking 3-pointer in the final minute of Game 7 and scored 40 more on Friday, raising his average in those elimination games to 32.5 points per game. Let's make sure you're playing and I get to watch. "If they make tough threes over us when can nearly live with those instead of the stare down, rhythm - you can make a sandwich before someone can out there and you knock it down".

Bringing defensive help against Curry leaves someone else open for a pass and scoring opportunity, Durant warned. We shared the ball, we moved the ball and defensively we were physical.

"We'll just come and play our game, continue to build on what we've been doing since Day 1 of training camp", said Warriors star Kevin Durant, attempting to brush all distractions aside. Then, in the third quarter, Green was called for another technical, which would have forced him to be ejected from the game. Pretty much all their guys are in their 20s. No one will question their heart or effort if they play hard and lose. If you have $133,000 sitting around in the bank account and can freely spend it on some Warriors tickets, who among us can judge?

The Warriors want to celebrate in front of their home crowd.

"It would be a great night to get it done", Curry said.

"We have to be more on edge".
