J.R. Smith #5 and LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers discuss the play against the Golden State Warriors during the first half in Game 2 of the 2017 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 4, 2017 in Oakland, California.

There probably weren't too many people who thought Cleveland could be competitive in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. As Kerr was getting up to leave the podium, he told the media they were "much better today".

The Cavs can't seem to stop the Warriors when it really matters. Kevin Love chipped in 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds to build on a strong performance.

Before Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue insisted his team is "in a good place right now".

LeBron James shot a postseason career-high 51 points but became the first player in history to score 50-plus points in the Finals and be on a losing team. Billups and Pierce went with Kevin Durant if the Warriors prevail, while Rose supported Curry.

Kerr apparently felt good enough to throw some shade at LeBron James during his postgame press conference. During Game 1, he was poked in the face, and left with a bright red mark on his eye. It will be the fourth straight finals that Santana, a 10-time Grammy victor and three-time Latin Grammy victor, has played the anthem before the second game on the Warriors' home floor. Klay Thompson added 20 points playing on a tender left leg to put the defending champions two victories from a repeat title they have talked about since the season began last fall. He's shooting well. You can't say, 'Oh, he should be back because he shot a 94.' You can't say that.

In Game 2 Sunday he reminded everyone why.

Maybe the home crowd can help. They gave Smith an ovation during player introductions, then serenaded him at the foul line in the first quarter with chants of M-V-P.

Klay Thompson also started 2 for 2, showing no signs of trouble with his ankle that was sore after a Game 1 collision. They have won their next eight playoff games at Quicken Loans Arena.

The Cavs host the Warriors in Game 3 on Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET.

No team in National Basketball Association history has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit to win any best-of-seven series.

Here is the replay where you can see just how flawless the pass was.
