Warriors' Steve Kerr back on sideline, will coach Game 2

But after a convincing 22-point win, the Golden State Warriors' prized free agent signing is convinced those same opportunities won't present themselves again during Game 2 on Sunday. Durant had 33 points, 13 rebounds, and played fantastic defense on LeBron James for much of the night. The difference was just three third-quarter turnovers for the Warriors, which is why they led 102-88 after three quarters.

Steph Curry pitched in with 28 points and 10 assists and center Zaza Pachulia returned after missing the final two games of the Western Conference Finals, scoring eight points while snagging six boards. Between Durant, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson, they have three of the best scorers in the game today. The Cavaliers trio of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love were good in Game 1, but they need other players like Tristan Thompson, JR Smith and Deron Williams to contribute more. Kerr had his initial procedures in 2015 after guiding the organization's first championship in 40 years as a rookie coach. The Warriors lead the Cavaliers one game to none in the best-of-seven series.

Thompson ignited it with a three-pointer followed by another jumper. Golden State equaled its four turnovers from Game 1 in the initial 5:12.

Assistant coach Mike Brown has been coaching the team in his absence.

"There's an old saying, 'You don't miss the water 'til the well runs dry, '" the 80-year-old Attles said after receiving the Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement Award.

The move may be one of those that comes back to haunt the Warriors in the end if the Cavaliers manage to come back in the series, but for now, it looks like Curry is calm, cool and collected.

Cleveland will wear its black, t-shirt style jerseys for Game 2 of the 2017 NBA Finals.

"They won two games", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said, "now we've got to go home and regroup". But we've still got to play. Maybe he's right though-if the Warriors win that series, maybe they don't go out and sign Kevin Durant, and the future of the National Basketball Association is monumentally different. Kerr has been out since the Game 3 of the Warriors' first-round series vs. the Trail Blazers. He was experiencing painful migraines and nausea that were complications of back surgery he underwent almost two years ago.

Tip-off is scheduled for at 8:00 p.m. ET.
