Fouled Out-None. Rebounds-Cleveland 41 (Love 10), Golden State 41 (Durant 9). "Knowing who has held the record for six or eight years". Learn from what cost San Antonio a title in 2013, too.

LeBron James is at it again.

His 17 attempts from three-point range were more shots than any of his teammates took in Game 2 and more shots than he has averaged during the regular season.

"They're a risky ballclub no matter what", James said.

The Cleveland Cavaliers need a victory here if they have any chance of making this a series. The Warriors All-Star has never missed a postseason game.

"It was too easy on them", Lue said.

"It's hard to think back to all of the games, but [Curry] was tremendous", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "We know they're going to load up on KD and those guys".

Three years ago, the accolade went to Andre Igoudala for his defensive work against LeBron James, despite the fact the former did not feature in the Warriors' starting line-up until Game 4. The Celtics had him and the Heat down 3-2 in the Eastern Conference finals in 2012, and couldn't finish.

Curry, 30, surpassed the previous record of eight three-pointers, as he top-scored with 33 points in Oakland.

The Warriors led 2-0 and 3-1 in 2016. Assists-Cleveland 25 (James 13), Golden State 29 (Curry 9). This is not the same Cleveland team (Kyrie Irving would really help). Sometimes, as in the Houston series, a Warriors player - in this case, Jordan Bell - will pass it back between his legs to Curry and then act as a shield.

They're saying all the right things.

The Cavaliers are down 2-0.

The Warriors broke it open with a dominant fourth quarter as Stephen Curry scored 13 points in a 21-10 run that pushed the Warriors' lead to 111-93. We're not going to focus on that.

Coming off a tough loss in Game 1, the Cavs stayed within striking distance for most of the contest until a flurry of second-half three pointers by Curry overwhelmed the visitors and sealed the win.

This series at times has been the Cavaliers versus the cavalier.

Twitter reacted to Golden State's convincing blowout win.

The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers meet Wednesday in game three of the 2018 NBA Finals at the Quicken Loans Arena.

James looked absolutely unstoppable in a 51-point performance in game one, as he was almost flawless driving to the basket and dropping bombs from three-point range, but Sunday he passed up several open looks from deep early and only had two shots nine minutes into the game.

"Give him credit where credit is due". They adjusted nicely against James after his 51-point barrage in Game 1. But nothing would ever take the love of the game away from me.

The Warriors welcome that.

What deflated the Cavs wasn't just the shots he made, but the shots he made with fingers in his face.

The formula worked Sunday. They've proven they can win on someone else's floor.

The Warriors outscored the Cavaliers 27-18 in the second quarter.

"My ankle's just sore", he said. "It's something you definitely don't want to have in the National Basketball Association championship". "Anytime that really hitting shots at such a high clip - he was 10 of 14 tonight for 26 points, and he was at plus-24 plus/minus, so they're very tough to stop when he's hitting shots".

While the Cavs might suspect this was a one-night blast from Curry, the forecast for the rest of this series actually favors him.
