Boooooy looka hear! Game 2 of the NBA Finals waged on last night as the Cleveland Cavaliers looked to bounce back from their drubbing from last week against the Golden State Warriors and it appeared the Cavs flipped the script! Well, what do you mean CeeJay! I’m glad you asked! In Game 1, the Cavs had 20 turnovers and LeBron James had 8 of those and in Game 2, the Warriors had 20 turnovers themselves and Steph Curry also had 8 of those TO’s and the Cavs made things interesting in the 1st half as they kept pace with Warriors relentless offense and trailed by only one possession 67 – 64 going into halftime. But as I mentioned in my last show, when the Warriors scored at least 35 points in the 1st quarter, they are 22 – 0 this season and they scored 40! But after halftime, it was the Warriors who flipped the script and brought the clamps in on defense and pulled the Lambo out of the garage raced out to a 35 – 24 3rd period lead. One of the defining moments of the game came midway through the 3rd as Curry took James on a dosey doe as James had Curry corralled in a corner, Alliteration, I Love It! But Curry put on a dribbling clinic and had James saying which way did he go, which way did he go, which way did he go as Curry faked him out with a three and drove to basket for a right handed layup and the crowd went bonkers and so did I! The Cavs would did not come close to sniffing in shortening the lead and with less than five minutes left in the contest, Cavs Coach Tyronn Lue threw in the towel as the Warriors tamed, taunted and tormented, Alliteration, I Love It, the Cavs 132 – 113 as Kevin Durant was sizzling again with 33 points on 22 shots, 13 rebounds for a double-double and added 6 assists, 3 steals and 5 blocks and his running mate Curry posted his 1st postseason triple-double with 32 points, 11 dimes and 10 boards. The X-Factor in Klay Thompson finally woke up from his offensive slump and notched 22 points. As far as the Cavs, James was his usual self and notched a triple-double with 29 points, 14 dimes and 11 rebounds as he joined Magic Johnson as the only players in NBA history with 8 Finals triple-doubles and with Curry’s triple-double, it was the first time in NBA Finals history in which two players had triple-doubles in the same game. The Cavs will look to re-group again as they travel home to The Land for Game 3 on Wednesday.

Steve Kerr back on the sidelines 
For your Quick News & Notes, Steve Kerr, Golden State Warriors head coach, who had not coached since April 19, returned to the sideline for Game 2 and finally, former Los Angeles Lakers player and former New York Knicks coach, Derek Fisher was arrested for suspicion of DUI yesterday after flipping his car on U. S. 101 in Sherman Oaks. His passenger and girlfriend, Gloria Govan, who was married to Matt Barnes, were not injured.
