Warriors come out strong to beat Cavaliers in Game 2

Warriors come out strong to beat Cavaliers in Game 2

Curry, a 30-year-old guard, broke the old mark of 8 3-pointers in a Finals game set by Ray Allen of Boston in 2010.

"Them suspending somebody else don't make me feel good", said Green, whose Game 5 suspension in the 2016 Finals against Cleveland played such a big part in Golden State's collapse after they led the series 3-1.

Curry scored 16 points in the 4th quarter, including a 4-point play from a corner 3-pointer and the record breaker from the left side with 3:30 remaining.

The series shifts to Cleveland for Games Two and Three.

The Golden State Warriors won Game 2 of the NBA Finals, 122-103, to take a 2-0 lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers. At times, the Warriors trapped James, forcing the ball from his hands. He's shooting well. You can't say, 'Oh, he should be back because he shot a 94.' You can't say that. Those players - Kyle Korver, Jeff Green, and Larry Nance - collectively shot 2-of-11 with 10 rebounds and three assists.

But Golden State star forward Kevin Durant suffered a knee injury that appeared serious and suddenly the Warriors wanted a forward as a precaution. They were mocking Smith for his failure to remember the right score at the end of Game 1.

The Russian Foreign Ministry claimed that "bloody crimes and total impunity have become routine for the Kyiv regime". In the fall, Babchenko moved to Kiev, where he worked as a host for the Crimean Tatar TV station, ATR.

The Cavaliers coach, Tyronn Lue, paid tribute to his players for keeping the game close until the fourth-quarter but admitted the Warriors were the better team. Meanwhile Durant, who was named finals MVP last season, scored 26 points with seven assists and nine rebounds. It was J.R. Smith's now infamous blunder that cost the Cavs a chance to win at the end of regulation.

Perhaps because of all that, it was pretty stunning when James himself wore yet another edition of his suit shorts outfit from Game 1. Applying a smart strategy is how the Houston Rockets succeeded in the first half of Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals.

The NBA Finals can be tense, but Steve Kerr is doing what he can to keep it loose.

Cleveland was one play away from winning a stunner straight up in Game 1.

"Klay will warm up and we'll see", Kerr said.

"It's better. It doesn't look better, but the docs told me it's better", James said.
