Golden State Up 2-0 In NBA Finals
Lebron James is now on par with Magic Johnson for the most triple-doubles in the history of the NBA Finals. He now has 8 all-time. However, King James couldn’t will his team to victory all by himself and now the Cavs find themselves in a 0-2 deficit heading back home for Game 3.
The Warriors were lead by Kevin Durant once again, slowly inching his way to an NBA Finals MVP award. His game-high 33 combined with Stephen Curry’s first career NBA Finals triple-double (32 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds) propelled the Warriors to an NBA record 14th straight play-off game victory.
In the second game in a row, things looked close heading into halftime, but it was a decisive third quarter which saw Golden State pull away again. Just before tip-off, head coach Steve Kerr made the announcement that we has back on the bench. Assistant coach Mike Brown has done an admirable job in his absence, having gone on to win every game since Kerr stepped aside due to back surgery complications from 2015.
Last year the Cavs game out swinging in Game 3, so the Warriors better be prepared for what’s coming. Game 3 takes place in Cleveland on Thursday.
