The Warriors took a 2-0 series lead in the NBA Finals after defeating the Cavaliers 122-103 in Game 2 on Sunday night.
Golden State never trailed in the contest, and ran away with the game in the fourth quarter behind one of the best shooting performances in NBA Finals history.
Stephen Curry was phenomenal, scoring 16 of his game-high 33 points in the fourth quarter.
He also knocked down nine three-pointers, setting the NBA record for most three-pointers in a Finals game.
Kevin Durant had a strong all-around game, accounting for 26 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, while Klay Thompson added 20 points and three three-pointers in a gutsy effort.
CURRY STEALS THE SHOW:
When his career is all said and done, he might own every three-point record in the books.
On Sunday night in Game 2, Curry added another one to his resume, breaking Ray Allen’s record for most made threes in a Finals game.
He didn’t get off to a great start in either half, but he closed both of them with a vengeance.
In the first and third quarters of Sunday’s game, Curry made just one of the eight combined three-pointers he attempted.
In the second and fourth quarters, he shot 8-of-9 from beyond the arc. Several of his threes were of the insane variety, but none more so than his step-back 28-footer to beat the shot clock with just under eight minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
After taking the first two games of the series at home, the Warriors will try to recreate the events of one year ago when they travel to Cleveland to take on the Cavs in Game 3 on Wednesday night.
