Golden State win Game 2
The Golden State Warriors are once again up 2-0 in the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, as the hosts from Oakland, California defeated the visitors 122-103 on Sunday evening at Oracle Arena.
Leading the way for the Warriors, 10/17 to win the series 4-0, was Stephen Curry, as the 30-year-old point guard from Akron, Ohio had a game-high 33 points while pulling down seven rebounds and passing out eight assists for the contest. Curry set an NBA Finals record with nine three pointers, passing Ray Allen for the record.
Golden State received a huge early burst from JaVale McGee, as the seven footer received a rare start and added 12 points and two rebounds. The series now heads back to Cleveland for Game 3 of the series, with the Warriors looking to put the stranglehold on the Finals.
The Cavaliers have only lost one game in the post-season at the Quicken Loans Arena and that was the first contest of the against the Indiana Pacers. LeBron James had a strong game, but it wasn't enough for the Cavaliers. The 33-year-old small forward from Akron, Ohio finished the contest with a team-high 29 points while grabbing nine rebounds and dishing out 13 assists for a double-double for the game.
Golden State were without Andre Iguodala for another game, but the veteran is close to returning to the court in this series. The Warriors have historically struggled in game 3's in the past four years and the defending NBA champions will be hoping to do something about that on Wednesday.
