Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) grabs a rebound against Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (30) during the first half of Game 1 of basketball's NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Thursday, June 1, 2017. They wore the black shirts while winning Game 7 of the NBA Finals past year, and will try the look again Sunday against Golden State.

It's Comeback Night at Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Defense is where it has to begin for Cleveland because let's be real, it will not outscore Golden State if the game comes down to a shootout.

Kerr, the NBA's reigning coach of the year, has guided the Warriors to the Finals three consecutive seasons. "But one thing about us, it's all about us". Kerr returned Green to the lineup by the midpoint of the second quarter, and with Cleveland steadily cutting into what was a double-digit Golden State lead.

Highlighting some of the most iconic members of each team, it pits Lebron James, Kyrie Irving and other Cavs against Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and the Warriors.

"Just getting a chance to see how they play, the style of play, how fast they play, you can't really simulate that in practices", Lue said.

Kerr coached Game 2 against the Blazers in the first round but began suffering symptoms from back surgery that included debilitating headaches and nausea, forcing him to miss more than a month of Golden State's playoff run. By his logic, the Cleveland Cavaliers loss that game to the Cleveland Cavaliers and no one else.

The Warriors left the arena believing the margin of victory could have been greater. Kyle Korver and Deron Williams both played like it was their first ever Finals game, with poor decision making and a combined 0-5 shooting. "I'm feeling better. I'm feeling more like I did at the end of the regular season".

(If needed) - Monday, June 12: Cleveland at Golden State, 9 p.m. "You can talk 15-0 or whatever [Mike Brown] was, but I think the team is falling apart at the seams".

"I feel like (my health is) back where it is was before the Portland series, and as I told you guys when I stepped aside in Portland, I don't know what happened", Kerr said. "I just had to get back to right the ship". "Most of the time it's going to be a touchdown going the other way".
