Asked the difference between this year and last year, James simply said, "K.D." and added, "They are a different team". If they win the next two Finals games in Cleveland and complete a 16-0 record in the playoffs, they'll be the first team to ever go flawless through a playoff run.
Is this the key to Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors' winning ways? We've been here. The guys that were here previous year understand it's the hardest thing to do is to try to close out a series and we've got two more games to go.
The NBA Finals will continue Wednesday as the Warriors travel to Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena for their first road game of the series. He looks more like a two-time MVP than the hobbled player he was in last year's Finals. But after the first two games - a pair of dominant Golden State victories, powered by overwhelming performances by Curry and Durant - they've quickly been put to rest.
"They're going keep to coming, man", Curry said.
So while the Cavs cling to hope based on what they did before, the problem is what else do the Cavs have up their sleeves against a team now powered by Durant that has been unbeatable in the playoffs. "If you make a mistake - like I said, we had a turnover, it came from me, and then we had a miscue and the floods opened again". While James has thrived so far and had 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists to tie Magic Johnson's record with his eighth career Finals triple-double Sunday, he hasn't gotten almost enough help. Draymond Green remains an ace defender, and Klay Thompson bounced back in Game 2.
The Warriors, who welcomed back coach Steve Kerr after missing 11 games through back issues, have now won a record 14 straight play-off games. "We need to take that mentality to Cleveland".
