The Golden State Warriors overcame 20 turnovers and a triple-double by Cleveland's LeBron James to beat the Cavaliers 132-113 at Oracle arena on Sunday and push their Finals series lead to 2-0.

James responded sarcastically when a reporter asked him what would happen if the team didn't defend home court.

James, who last month overtook Michael Jordan to become the NBA's all-time playoff scoring leader, was coached by current Warriors acting coach Mike Brown with the Cavaliers, who appreciates the streak and the longevity James has shown in reaching eight career NBA Finals, the last seven in a row.

Music sensation Rihanna sat courtside for the Warriors' rout of the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Game 3 is Wednesday night in Cleveland. "Trust me, we know".

With Wonder Woman , Patty Jenkins was looking to make a movie that was about more than just a superhero saving the day. If you were hoping an extended edition of Wonder Woman will be released in the future, you might end up disappointed.

They have to do it quickly or Cavs-Warriors III could end up being a much shorter series than the first two editions of the Finals trilogy that the teams split. But after the game, he said he felt fine and just needed some food and wine two feel better. "I get drawn in too much of what I'm doing right now in the present and my only focus is what I can to help this team be better for game two".

James was equally spectacular with his own triple-double of 29 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds, but yet again didn't get almost enough help to keep up with Golden State's depth despite Kevin Love's 27 points and 19 from Kyrie Irving. For Golden state, it's Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Zaza Pachulia. "It was 2-0 past year, we lost". "I did that. I'm excited, and it's good to be back".

News that the pain and headaches that kept the coach away from the team for the first 43 games of last season had returned in April shocked fans in the Bay Area, where Kerr is a beloved figure.

"I'm just seeing a lot of bodies", Irving said. James had little help as Love got there late.

Midseason acquisitions Kyle Korver and Deron Williams have failed to make their anticipated impact, with Williams being held scoreless through two games while Korver followed up a zero-point opener with eight points but has been a liability defensively.
