But that wasn't enough.
"And we have done a great job of getting everyone involved and making sure that everyone feels comfortable, but now we need everything and everybody".
"We're just trying to just stay in the moment". How do we know this?
Kevin Love just had his best season in Cleveland, and it seems like he's finally fit in with his new team after three seasons. "We have to figure out a way to get him going early".
If the Cavs play at all like they did in the series' first two games, they'll suffer the same fate as the Warriors' first three playoff opponents. Golden State, a Finals dubbed "The Three-Match" has been a mismatch.
Those viewers have been treated to pure dominance through two games.
The Warriors remained ideal in the 2017 post-season by sweeping the first two games of the NBA Finals at home and enter game three Wednesday at Cleveland on a record 14-0 playoff win streak - two wins shy of the first undefeated run to a championship.
One of the options Lue has heading into Wednesday's Game 3 is to bench struggling starting guard J.R. Smith for Iman Shumpert, who played well defensively in Game 2 but wore himself out guarding Durant and needed IV fluids afterward.
James is going to continue to put up impressive numbers, even as the Cavs have trouble slowing down the Warriors. "The game is too fresh".
Kevin Love shot well from the field in Game 2, and Irving could bounce back as he returns home. "I'm good. I just need some fluid and some wine and I'll be all right". "We have won a lot of games playing the way we play, so we're not going to change". Much more physical today than we were in Game 1. That's when the Warriors truly took off. James had 10 first-half assists, the most in any playoff half of his career, while Curry had 15 points as Golden State took a 40-34 lead in the highest-scoring NBA Finals first quarter in 50 years and the second-highest ever.
Now for the obligatory mention that the Cavaliers were also down 2-0 in last year's finals and were hearing numerous same things about how they had no shot of coming back.
The Warriors are now 14-0 in the postseason, but the coach warned against complacency after the Cavs surged back from 3-1 down to win last year's Finals between the two sides.
They have been just that so far in the playoffs, welcoming head coach Steve Kerr back to the bench after he missed 11 games due to complications from multiple back surgeries by pushing their post-season record to 14-0, the best there has ever been this deep into the playoffs, a ideal 16-0 run just two games away. I can get my guys ready, get myself ready.
"It was just great to be on the sidelines again. And so it's really nice to be back".
Kerr initially hurt his back during the 2015 National Basketball Association championship series. Any worries about that, however, were quickly washed away once the game began.
The defending National Basketball Association champion Cavaliers also play at a fast pace but that approach has resulted in a pair of lopsided losses that have the Warriors two wins from the first flawless 16-0 postseason in National Basketball Association history.
