The deal links Rakuten with one of the most successful and popular National Basketball Association franchises in recent times with the Warriors well on target to secure a third championship in four years. Santana and his wife Cindy Blackman Santana spoke to guest host Tim Reynolds before they performed "The Star-Spangled Banner" at Game 2 of the series. They just have to do it twice more to win another title. James especially has shown a willingness to concede road games in order to show up in a big way at home, where he averages nearly seven more points per game.
"It's extremely hard", said Warriors guard Shaun Livingston, who joined Golden State before the first title run.
"I think this is just the start of a long journey".
"It sounds ridiculous, because we're winning a championship".
The Splash Brothers could occupy two of the top three spots in that category by the end of the game. "I think we have to be ready, all us other guys, to relieve some of that pressure". So that's where we have to try to find the motivation.
So much went right for the Cavs in the first half.
Curry draws inspiration from recalling his 26-56 rookie campaign in 2009-10.

The Cavaliers All-Star says the Warriors have "had a two-time MVP sit out playoff games and they've won". "This is fun", Kerr said.
"Obviously it's a great feeling to see both teams performing so well", Rahul Kadavakolu, director of global marketing and branding at Rakuten Inc, told Reuters. If you win a couple more, then you're talking about a dynasty.
"We're competing for something that's really important". "We have an opportunity to come out and protect home. And you have to accept what comes with that". "But we've got to do a good job of just taking away the easy ones". This is not normal. So it's going to be huge for us.
Stephen Curry is playing like an NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson have been brilliant, and Draymond Green is quietly averaging a near triple-double. "That's kind of the nature of the beast being on this stage four times in a row". "You look at 'Dre, he has an even keel for the game".
