Warriors Take 2-0 NBA Finals Lead With 132-113 Win Over Cavs

The Golden State Warriors are still undefeated in the NBA Playoffs. Thanks to a 132-113 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2, the Warriors now lead the series 2-0. The Warriors were up only three at the half, but much like Game 1, ran away with it in the second half. 

Kevin Durant once again was amazing on both ends of the court strong. He racked up 33 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, five blocks, three steals and a ton of highlight-reel plays. 

Stephen Curry got to the line an NBA Finals-record 10 times in the first quarter, hitting all 10. He had a triple-double in a great effort, posting 32 points, 11 assists and 10 boards. 

Klay Thompson snapped out of his scoring slump and had one of his best games all playoffs. He racked up 22 points and seven rebounds in a sharp effort.  

LeBron James has shouldered the load again for the Cavs, tying Magic Johnson for most triple-doubles in NBA Finals history. He racked up 29 points on 12 of 18 shooting, with 14 assists, 11 rebounds and three steals, although he did slow down in the second half after a frantic first half. 

Kevin Love started the game hot, hitting his first four shots. He finished with 27 points and seven rebounds. Despite battling foul trouble, Draymond Green racked up 12 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Warriors. 

Kyrie Irving was off for a good chunk of the game, finishing with 19 points on just 8 of 23 shooting. He did hit a buzzer-beating shot to end the half, however, and showed some nifty handles. 

As a bonus for the Warriors , they got head coach Steve Kerr back. He's missed most of the playoffs as he deals with complications from a back injury. 

Game 3 is Wednesday in Cleveland. Tip-off is set for 9 p.m. E.T.
