Warriors Spank Cleveland in Game 2 of the NBA Finals

by June 06, 2016

The Golden State Warriors took a commanding 2-0 series lead Sunday night in the NBA Finals, crushing the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-77 in Game 2.

Draymond Green led the way with 28 points, and once again, the Splash Brothers were kept relatively quiet in an easy victory.

The Cavs left Oakland feeling dazed and confused, but insist that they’re not feeling discouraged just yet.

Per the AP:

Green had 28 points with five 3-pointers, seven rebounds and five assists, while MVP Stephen Curry scored 18 points despite foul trouble, and Golden State thoroughly overwhelmed Cleveland 110-77 in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night. […] “There’s no point in celebrating or jumping up and down saying, ‘Look at us.’ We’re two games away from winning a championship, but we still have to go out and get the job done,” Curry said. “It’s a trap to think that we’ve figured things out, that we have the perfect formula to beat Cleveland and they have no chance in the series. That’s not how we’re supposed to think.”


The 33-point win was the Warriors’ most lopsided ever in a finals game ā€” and they have won the first two by a combined 48 points. […] “They just beat us,” LeBron James said. “We didn’t win anything. No points of the game did we beat them in anything.”


Once the Splash Brothers found their shooting touch, Cleveland couldn’t keep up. Klay Thompson got hot after halftime to finish with 17 points as Golden State became the first team to go ahead 2-0 in the finals since the Lakers in 2009 against Orlando. […] Now, the series shifts to Cleveland, and James and the Cavs must show up for Game 3 on Wednesday in front of their title-starved fans down 2-0 to the defending champs and with forward Kevin Love dealing with a head injury.
