NBA Finals

Golden State Warriors open up 2-0 lead over Cavs in NBA Finals

The Golden State Warriors won Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Oakland on Sunday night, trouncing the Cleveland Cavaliers 122-103. Warriors star Stephen Curry had 33 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds, and his nine three-pointers set an NBA Finals record, topping Ray Allen's eight three-pointers for Boston in 2010. Klay Thompson scored 20 points and Kevin Durant 26. LeBron James had 29 points, 13 assists, and nine rebounds for the Cavs, and the speculation on social media before the game was even over was whether James will switch teams after the finals, and where he'd go. "The shared belief that drove the conversation?" USA Today notes: "James just can't beat these star-studded Warriors unless he finds a way to form another super team."
