The Christian athlete made a record nine 3-pointers and scored 33 points to lead Golden State to a 122-103 win over Cleveland for 2-0 series lead.

The differentiation in play between Golden State's and Cleveland's role players was not just the story of Game 2, but it's what sets them apart fundamentally in roster construction and organizational strategy.

LeBron James played well again in Game 2 on Sunday night against the Golden State Warriors. "We really get up to play at home. we know that come Wednesday we have to be better".

"It's going to be a tough task", Golden State forward Draymond Green said. Yes, that was a better Cavs team - they had Kyrie Irving - and Durant had yet to join Golden State, but numerous same players remain on both teams.

Curry made nine 3-point shots, an NBA Finals record.

2-for-9 - Some thought that the situation at the end of regulation during Game 1 may wake JR Smith up a little and that he may do very well in Game 2.


"As a fan of the National Basketball Association, you could go down the list of the teams that won multiple years and just dominated the league for stretches of time", Curry said.

Kevin Durant found his steady stroke to score 26 points to go with nine rebounds and seven assists while also handling a load of the defensive assignment against James. "For them to have a sustained level of excellence like they've had, I don't take that for granted and I think anyone who's played or observed this game knows how hard that is for one, let alone to be able to get here four times and have an opportunity to win three speaks for itself".

The pull-up 3-pointer has been full weaponized but Curry's proclivity for walking into them early in the shot clock is one of the things that still separates him from the rest of the league.

James pointed with both hands after his 3 with 11:04 remaining got his team within seven, before Curry answered from deep the next two trips down the floor.

"It's tough - really tough - to guard Steph anywhere out there on the floor because he's just so good at finding himself open", Love said after the game, in which Curry shot a ideal 5-of-5 from 3-point range in the final period.

One thing the Cavs did tire of was talk about the officiating. I think the only dynasty is the Spurs. His dominance has been missed in the Smith and Curry storylines but it will probably play bigger now that the series moves to Cleveland. Winning Game 7 at Oracle in 2016 might have given them the wrong kind of message about homecourt advantage.
