Tired Cavaliers could have little left for home game
Warriors can move to brink of series sweep in NBA Finals
BT Sport 1, 2am Wednesday night
Golden State can move to the brink of a series sweep in the NBA finals as the teams meet in Cleveland for the first time.
The Cavaliers put a tremendous effort into their two road games, blowing a chance to win Game One at the end of regulation and losing 124-114 after overtime.
And Game Two was also more competitive than the final score of 122-103 to Golden State sounds. But Cavaliers talisman LeBron James has put in superhuman performances in the first two games without it being enough and it's hard to know what will be left in the tank as the series moves to the Quicken Loans Arena for the next two games.
James has been bothered by an eye injury sustained in the first match - he still scored 51 points - and justifiably exasperated at a number of calls by the officials. But he desperately needs his teammates to step up their games at home, where they went 29-12 in the regular season.
Warriors star Steph Curry set an NBA Finals record with nine three-pointers in Game Two. Golden State won Game Three in Cleveland last year to move 3-0 ahead. It could be the same story again.
Golden State -4.5
