Warriors Put Game In Overdrive And Blowout Cavs
Different night, same story for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they fall to the Golden State Warriors 132-113 in blowout fashion once again in the NBA Finals. The Warriors, who had their head coach return in game 2, remain undefeated in the NBA playoffs as they improve to 14-0. Lebron James was the star for the Cavs as he had a triple double but he couldn't get enough help to steal a game in Oracle Arena.
The game tonight was similar to game 1 in that at halftime it was a close game with the Cavs only trailing by 3 but the Warriors kicked into overdrive in the 3rd quarter to seal another home court win. The Cavs didn't score for almost 3 minutes as the Warriors pushed the lead to 14 points at the end of the 3rd quarter.
Lebron James finished with 29 points 11 rebounds, and 14 assists. While he got a little help from Kevin Love who scored 27 and Kyrie Irving who finished with 19 points, it wasn't enough. Steph Curry finished with a triple double of his own scoring 32 points with 10 rebounds and 11 assists and Kevin Durant followed up his 38 point performance in game 1 with 33 points in game 2 and he also had 13 rebounds and 6 assists.
The series now moves to Cleveland for games 3 and 4 and if the Cavaliers want to make it look somewhat respectable in the series they will have to win game 3 on their home court. Game 3 will be on Wednesday at 8 PM CT and game 4 will be on Friday at 8 PM CT.
