Kevin Durant ruled out for Game 3

Kevin Durant ruled out for Game 3

Curry admits that in the 2016 NBA Finals, with 53 seconds left on the Game 7 game clock, he started to rush rather than staying patient, making the next right decision and trusting his teammates.

Led by Raptors superstar Kawhi Leonard (34 points, 14 rebounds), the home team was able to cut the lead to two points, before 2015 NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala hit a dagger 3 to put the defending champs up five with 5.9 seconds to go. Chris Haynes of Yahoo!

It's unclear if McIlroy will take in Game 5 on Monday when the series returns to Scotiabank Arena. "But I really want to be out there".

Here is how the data looks after two games: Game 1 drew 13.3 million viewers (on ABC), the lowest viewership number for an NBA Finals Game 1 since 2009. No player in National Basketball Association history has ever averaged 35 points per game on 50/40/90 shooting. He also set an NBA Finals record for most free throws made without a miss in a playoff game by shooting 16-for-16 from the line in Game 2. Thompson is questionable for Game 3, while Looney is out indefinitely.

Without Thompson on the floor, Toronto was able to focus exclusively on slowing down Curry.

- Third quarter energy: After leading throughout the first half in Game 2, things took a sharp turn in the third quarter for the Raptors as the Warriors opened the quarter with an 18-0 run. But it was his defence as part of an improved collective effort by Golden State that flipped a 118-109 loss in Game 1 into a series-tying win. It's always tough to back against the Warriors who will be playing their last games at the Oracle Arena, but I'm taking the Raptors with the points with the hope that Siakam doesn't have another horrid shooting night. "Those first three minutes of the third quarter, we wish we would have had back".

"We still got a lot of shots".
