- Stephen Curry stars for Golden State with 33-point game
- Reigning champions have 2-0 series lead after 122-103 victory
The Golden State Warriors were back to their usual selves in Game 2 of the NBA finals, dominating the Cleveland Cavaliers on both sides of the court to win 122-103 and take a 2-0 series lead. Stephen Curry led Golden State with 33 points, scoring an NBA finals-record nine three-pointers.
Cleveland’s JR Smith went into Sunday night with a lot to prove – and make up for – after his blunder in Game 1 prevented the Cavs from winning in the final seconds of the series opener. He was met with ironic cheers from Golden State fans when he came onto the court, and the crowd chanted “MVP” as he went to the free-throw line. The pressure got to him: he ended the night with just five points and one rebound. After the game Smith described his performance in one word: “terrible”.
