Kendrick Perkins warns Stephen Curry, Warriors after Game 2 incident


Curry attempted a shot in front of the Cleveland Cavaliers' bench just before the quarter ended. In addition to posting the round scores, a photo surfaced on Snapchat of Curry on the golf course the day before Game 3 against the Cavaliers.

Warriors guard Stephen Curry fired a 3-pointer from the corner with time winding down in the third quarter of Game 2 on Sunday. Or is it simply the NBA Finals atmosphere seeping through the players' psyche?

During the summer of 2016, Kevin Durant elected to join the Golden State Warriors and in the process changed the complexion of the National Basketball Association landscape.

Curry has been the Warriors best player, leading them in points and assists in both Games 1 and 2. The Warriors are a far better team, and they are almost unbeatable when Curry and Durant play as well off each other as they did in Game 2.

They have to make shots when they're open!

The ornate Edwardian building near Hyde Park opened as a hotel in 1902 and recently underwent extensive renovations. Around 120 firefighters and police officers were called to the scene, and the surrounding roads have been closed.

"He went off after that [altercation]", Draymond Green told ESPN.

Cleveland could try to run Curry off the 3-point line (something the Rockets did well) and into a crowded lane - in essence, run Curry into a wall of humanity.

"It took to the second question of my first media availability, so I'm pretty sure that narrative's going to take life, as it has since 2015", Curry said.

James, meanwhile, was less influential and he was restricted to 29 points. The Warriors and Cavs split Game 3 and 4 in Cleveland before the Warriors won the series in Game 5. If the Warriors can continue to blow up the third quarter, they will probably, most likely, blowup this series. A good barometer of how well Golden State's attack was working?

We'll find out which route the Cavs go in Game 3 soon enough, but whether this series goes four games or seven, the Curry conundrum looks like it's going to be these NBA Finals' defining factor.
