Stephen Curry breaks yet another 3-point record!

Golden State's Kevin Durant attacks the basket for two of his 26 points during Sunday night's Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Although it is technically the hardest time to play NBA basketball, offense has come easy for the Warriors at Oracle over the last three Junes, save an infamous Game 5 and Game 7.

In Game 2, you realized why the Cleveland Cavaliers were so distraught after J.R. Smith's blunder and everything else they did to let the series opener slip away Thursday night. Yes, the first two games were bad for the Cavaliers but a couple of losses on the road do not end any hope of winning a title. Golden State got strong performances up and down its roster, including a record-breaking shooting display from Stephen Curry.

"Home-court advantage can be a real thing", said Kevin Love, whose 22 points and 10 rebounds were the Cavs' chief means of Game 2 support for James' 29-point, 13-assist, 9-rebound effort.

The Golden State Warriors were mesmerizing again - not just for a quarter or a couple of spurts, but for most of the game.

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. And that's what Golden State wants.


It took things like JaVale McGee going 6 for 6 and David West stepping up in a critical late-third-quarter moment to hit his first 3-pointer in seven months to help the Warriors keep the Cavs at bay Sunday, until Curry ran wild late on his way to a NBA Finals record nine 3s and turn the game into a rout.

Coach Steve Kerr remains optimistic the 2015 Finals MVP will play at some point in the series. Love has made just four of his shots from distance, he was 3-for-8 Sunday, and simply hasn't been the No. 2 threat the Cavaliers need him to be to top the Warriors. He's shown no lingering effects from his time in the league's concussion protocol from the conference finals but has yet to regain his shooting stroke, particularly from long range.

What he hasn't done this postseason is appear in a game.

"He came into the huddle the other night in Game 1 with a great suggestion that we went with, and it worked", Kerr said, via Dan Devine of Yahoo Sports. They shot 59.5 percent in the first half despite going 6 of 19 on 3s.

Haynes also tweeted: "ESPN Sources: Golden State forward Andre Iguodala has been pain free the last few days, eyeing a return soon". Listen they've had a two-time MVP sit out playoff games and they've won, all right.

The game started with Smith getting loud cheers from the Warriors fans, who booed him mercilessly in Game 1 after Smith slipped and fell into Klay Thompson's leg, sending the Warriors guard to the locker room briefly with an injury. "They're good. They're great, actually".
