NBA Finals, game 2: Cavaliers @ Warriors

Game 1 of the NBA Finals brought the house down in Oracle Arena on Thursday. It was a back and forth affair that almost ended in dramatic fashion, with Iman Shumpert's potentially game-winning put back jumper grazing over the rim. Instead, the game went to overtime, where the Cavaliers couldn't find the bottom of the hoop, being outscored by the Warriors 10-2 in the extra period, with their only points coming on a gimme layup with only seconds remaining. Tonight, they look to even the score. Unfortunately, they will have to do so without their point guard, as Kyrie Irving suffered a fractured knee cap in game one and will be out for the remainder of the series. LeBron will have even more work to do, but if anyone can do it...
