Cleveland Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson pushed his way through a group of reporters as he walked out of an interview after his team's 122-103 loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals on Sunday, June 3.

It's been a rough beginning to the start of the series for the Cavs, as many have said Game 1 was stolen from them. "Pretty special night. And hopefully some more special things happen when we get two more wins". Game 2 was all about Stephen Curry.

Green was important during Cleveland's series against the Toronto Raptors, and vital to their Game 7 win over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. This was the night as Curry's 3-point shot fell from everywhere. Iguodala has missed the Warriors' last six games with a knee injury.

"It's hard to think back to all the games, but he was tremendous - nine threes and seemed to hit a big shot every time we needed one", coach Steve Kerr said.

The only way he can get back into the good books with the Cavs fans is to step up in the next two games at Quicken Loans Arena and play a big role in helping them get back in the series.

Kevin Love had 22 points and 10 boards for the cold-shooting Cavs, who will now try to gain some momentum back home. Afterward, he pointed to the heavens with his right hand and followed by putting both hands in the air in amazement.

Interrupting, Curry said: "You should have asked me". "I thought I had a layup at first, and I fumbled the ball and tried to see where the defense was". Curry dribbled the ball around the perimeter to free himself and momentarily lost the ball, but gathered it going away from the basket and launched a high-degree-of-difficulty, off-balance 28-footer over Love's fingertips that found nothing but the bottom of the net to beat the buzzer. "But as far as working harder, I think I got exhausted once". Some of the shots he missed, he's going to make those at home. But they couldn't contain Curry and the rest of the Warriors for extended stretches. "It was a cool moment for sure". They shot 59.5 percent in the first half despite going 6 of 19 on 3s. "That's what he does".

The two-time MVP made 11 of 26 shots and was 9 for 17 from deep. That gave Golden State a 72-61 lead to jump-start the offense after halftime.

The lights-out shooting helped spur the Warriors to a 2-0 edge in the best-of-seven series, which now heads to Cleveland for Game 3 on Wednesday.

There will be a time in these National Basketball Association finals when the shots fall for the Cleveland Cavaliers, their players remember the score and big calls go their way.
