While this was successful, it is hard to get too excited about James' production or Cleveland's effort as a whole.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry set a NBA Finals single-game record for most 3-pointers in a 122-103 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 of the best-of-seven series. The Cleveland Cavaliers star followed up his 51-point performance in the Game 1 with a near triple-double of 29 points, 13 assists, and nine rebounds. Had his Cavaliers teammates converted more of their large selection of their open looks, James might have had more. He was lofting 3-pointers from every bridge from the Golden Gate in San Francisco to the Lorain Avenue in Cleveland. He scored 16 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter. "It's something you definitely don't want to have in the National Basketball Association championship". The first two baskets came from McGee, who was inserted into the starting lineup as Golden State's center. And the Cavs were confused. They shot 59.5 percent in the first half despite going 6 of 19 on 3s.
The Cavs defense seemed utterly confused when it came to covering him. "To be good at those parts of the game, then you don't let the luck creep in".
But they are still down, 0-2.
Cleveland deployed its preferred offensive strategy of having LeBron challenge Curry and various Warriors' big men in pick-and-roll situations. When told that cameras appeared to catch him saying "I thought we were ahead", to LeBron James, Smith said, "I might have said that. He was remorseful. I've got to do all I can to be right for tomorrow".
In other words, LeBron can't do it all himself and the Warriors are probably going to win this series easily simply because James has little help.
James has to wonder, what will be enough?
This was the 102nd consecutive game this season for James.

James, whose left eye was bloodshot on Sunday after being poked by Draymond Green in Game 1, spent much of the night as a facilitator, hurting the Warriors with pinpoint passes from the high post. Kevin Durant contributed 26 points, nine boards and six assists. It was a solid game.
But that wasn't enough, either.
