Cavs at Warriors
7:00 pm CDT
The Cavs and Warriors resume the NBA Finals tonight in Oakland, with the Warriors looking to sweep their first two games at home. Game one was an overtime thriller that the Warriors ultimately won thanks to turning up their defense in the extra period, and getting big shots from Steph Curry and Harrison Barnes.
Even more pressure will be on the shoulders of LeBron James tonight because Kyrie Irving was lost for the series after fracturing his kneecap in game one, leaving the Cavs even shorter on scoring options. James went for 40 in game one but it wasn't enough, as they failed to get significant contributions off the bench. The Warriors on the other hand got tremendous efforts from Andre Iguodala and others off the bench.
The loss of Irving could spell the end of whatever chances the Cavs might have had in this series, especially when they were unable to pull out game one when they had the chance. You never know when LeBron James is involved, however, and the complexion of the series could change with one win on the road.
