The #Golden State Warriors will face The #Cleveland Cavaliers in #Game 2 of the NBA Finals tonight at Oracle Arena. The game will tip-off at 8 p.m. Eastern time on ABC. The Warriors lead the series one game to none and could go up by two if they win tonight. The Cavaliers look to even up the series after getting blown out by 22 in the first game.

If the Cavs can tie up the series, they will be in a good position to take control of the series in Cleveland. If the Warriors do end up winning tonight, then the Cavaliers will be in trouble. If Cleveland goes down 0-2, the series might be over.

The Warriors will look to beat the Cavaliers in Game 2 before heading to Cleveland for games three and four. If the Warriors take Game 2, then the series might be over. Kevin Durant and Steph Curry are a dynamic combo that not even the Cavs can stop. The Warriors would be in a position to sweep the series and become the 2017 NBA Finals Champions.

The Cavaliers will have two games at home to hopefully tie the series, but based on how Game 1 went, it could be a tall task. The series is not over and could change tonight, but if the Warriors win it could be all she wrote for Cleveland. It would be hard to see this version of the Warriors give up a lead like last year. The Warriors will not blow a series lead because they are better than last year and know what is at stake.

If the Cavaliers win Game 2

The Cleveland Cavaliers look to even the series at a game apiece tonight.

Cleveland has to play a perfect game to have a chance to win. LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love have to be better than they were in the first meeting. They need to have good production from their bench players to win. If they can pull out of Oakland with the series tied, then it would make things very interesting.

The Cavaliers are known to play better at home, which could shift the series into a very epic one. The Cavs would have home court advantage and be able to go up 3-1 on the Warriors. That would bold well for LeBron and company. The series may not be safe, however, on account of what happened last year.

It is safe to say that Cleveland needs this win more than Golden State. Even though Cleveland was able to come back from a 3-1 deficit last year, it may be impossible this year. The Cavaliers did not have to worry about Kevin Durant like they do this year. Game 2 will surely dictate how the rest of the series goes.
