In the night where the Golden State Warriors should have been celebrating for the success of their best player who received his MVP trophy, the Grizzlies had other things in mind. Led by the now masked Mike Conley, Memphis suffocated the Warriors' offense from the get go to the buzzer, en route a 97-90 win in Game 2 on Tuesday night.
But as basketball fans, most people would be thinking league MVP Steph Curry would be able to step into the plate and make some big shots. He scored 19 points and added six assists. But he also missed a bunch, hitting only 7 of 19 from the field, and 2-out-of 11 from deep.
Meanwhile, the performance of Curry's teammate Klay Thompson was worse. He made just a single three-point shot the entire game, finishing with 13 points, and committing five turnovers. more >>
Just when everyone thought the Bulls had the Cavs all figured out, LeBron James takes charge dropping 33 points in Game 2 of their best-of-seven series to lead Cleveland to a 106-91 victory.
"Our back was against the wall," James said in an interview after the game. "We couldn't go down 2-0."
In spite James' leadership all throughout the game, he was not alone in carrying the load as Cleveland led early in the game and never looked back. Kyrie Irving had 21 points, while Iman Shumpert added 15. Reserve guard Matthew Dellavedova almost had a double-double with nine points and nine assists. more >>
