Game 2 of the 2017 NBA Finals was no different than the opening game of the series, as the Golden State Warriors once again came out on top. Despite their great first-half effort, the Cleveland Cavaliers collapsed in the last 24 minutes of the game, allowing the Warriors to take a 2-0 lead before the series shifts to Cleveland.

LeBron James put on a great show once again, but he didn't have much help. Even though Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love combined for 46 points, no one else showed up and the Warriors were simply too much as they scored 132 points in the second game. Once again, LeBron had a great game and the Cavaliers lost.

However, the four-time MVP says he will be all right.

LeBron James had a triple-double

James had another triple-double in the NBA Finals, eighth of his career. The 32-year old forward led the Cavaliers in scoring with 29 points, and he also grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out 14 assists. James was very efficient when it comes to shooting, making 67 percent of his shots. It is interesting to note that, excluding LeBron James, there have been only six triple-doubles in NBA Finals in the last 25 years.

Despite James' incredible performance, the Cavaliers were blown out by 19 points, and it is questionable whether they can bounce back and win the series.

"Just need some food and some wine and I'll be all right," said LeBron James after the game.

Next two games of the series will be played in Cleveland and the Cavaliers will look to tie the series in front of their home crowd. They were the second-best home team in the regular season with a 31-10 record, and there is no doubt that playing on their home floor will be of tremendous help for the defending champions.

When it comes to road games, the Cavaliers had a losing record in the regular season as they were 20-21 in the opposing teams' arenas.

Can the Cavaliers tie the series?

Golden State Warriors are still undefeated this postseason as they've won 14 straight games. They have had complete control over the NBA Finals so far, but it will be interesting to see how the Cavaliers will respond at home.

There is no doubt that it will be difficult to take down the Warriors, but the Cavaliers are still defending champions and they are a much better team at home.

In their only home game against the Warriors in the regular season, the Cavaliers came out on top in a tight contest. Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals will be played on Wednesday, June 7, and it will be a must-win game for the Cavaliers.
