Golden State Remains Unbeaten in Playoffs, Take Game 2 in Convincing Fashion

The Golden State Warriors are officially running away with the NBA Finals. Last night, they took game two 132-113. This marked the highest scoring game in NBA history. Just like game one, it was not so much the lack of good play from the Cavaliers, but more so the near-perfect play from the Warriors. While Golden State still has a long way to go, they are sitting exactly where they want to.

”Well, it’s been a great run but none of that matters unless we can finish the job with this series,” Kerr said. ”Trust me, we know. It was 2-0 last year, we lost.”

Kevin Durant and Steph Curry combined for 65 points on eight three pointers. The difference maker in this game for the Warriors was a breakout performance from Klay Thompson. Thompson, who has nearly disappeared throughout this year’s playoffs, finished with 22 points on four three pointers.

”It seemed like it’s personal for both of them,” Draymond Green said about Durant and Curry. ”And you are talking two of the greatest players that we got in this world locked in the way they are, that’s why we’re up 2-0.”

LeBron James finished with 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists. This marked James’s eight triple double in NBA finals history, tying Magic Johnson for the most triple doubles in finals history. Kevin Love added 27 points and seven rebounds.

There really is not much that Cleveland can do at this point besides regroup and prepare for the next game. They are playing the best they can, the Warriors are simply playing that much better. Its near impossible to beat the Warriors when all of their starters are shooting above 40 percent from the field, it’s unguardable.

”I thought for the most part with the game plan that we had we tried to execute it as close as possible,” James explained. ”Much more physical today than we were in Game 1. And we forced them to 20 turnovers and they still beat us pretty good, so we’ve got to be much better, too.”

This series now sits exactly where it was last year. The Cavaliers now have two games at home which are absolute must-wins. Game three tips of Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. on ABC.
