Durant, Curry spark Warriors win against Cavaliers

This time, Curry committed eight turnovers as Cleveland committed to putting more pressure on the ball to keep Durant from driving and dunking untouched as he did so many times in Game 1. They have what two, three losses the whole playoffs?

He relinquished his role during the first round of the playoffs in late April due to complications resulting from back surgery two years ago.

Warriors: The Warriors had their first 40-point quarter in the Finals since scoring 41 in the first quarter of Game 6 in 1967 against the 76ers.

Kevin Durant hit a game-high 33 points, while Stephen Curry recorded his first play-off triple-double, with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. He balled. Other than Kevin Love, who finished with 27 points, nobody else joined him.

Overall, six Warriors notched double-figures on Sunday night - including Klay Thompson, who followed up his 3-for-16 night in Game 1 with a 22-point effort in Game 2, going 8-of-12 from the field, including 4-of-7 from long-range.

"They play well at home", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

However, the spectator fight after Game 2 took the cake for strangest fan interaction in the first two games. Trust me, we know, it was 2-0 past year and we lost.

Now, Golden State is headed to Northeast Ohio needing just two more - yet don't count on anybody considering this series close to done. The two were laughing as the conversation came to a close and as they began to pose for the picture, it seemed Jay-Z ordered the photographer to "take a picture while we're joking [or laughing, according to Hart's Instagram]". We have a lot of games left. We know how hard it is to be the best team in the league.

What was so discouraging for the Cavs is that they played better in Game 2 but the result didn't really change.

Looking ahead to Games 3 and 4, what can the Cavs do that's going to stop a Golden State squad that still hasn't played their A game and still has cruised to victories in the Finals?

"[This] was a game based on talent, we had a lot of guys who played exceptionally well individually and we played with great energy". "But they're a team you cannot - you can't let them go on runs".

"We made runs - we cut it to four at one point and then they went on quick 9-0 run or 12-0 run". That means the series may hinge on James's vast basketball intellect.

Golden State improved to 14-0 this postseason to keep alive a chance of becoming the first group to go unbeaten all the way to a title.

STANDOUT PERFORMER: Though Durant anchored the offense and had a mammoth game overall, Thompson's reemergence as a scorer also proved a difference-maker for Warriors.

Love gave the Cavs a needed second offensive threat with 27 points in Game 2; but against a team filled with a pair of former MVPs in Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, two other 2017 All-Stars in Draymond Green and Klay Thompson and several role players who have made key contributions, it wasn't been almost enough. If only he could get a little help from his friends.
