Warriors beat Cavaliers again in NBA Finals

Draymond Green showed off, showing off the bulk of his biceps, after making big plays on both ends of the floor. Sure enough, these Warriors seem too strong for their opponents.
Green scored 28 points, Stephen Curry added 18 and Golden State beat the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second straight time, this time 110-77, to extend their lead in the NBA Finals to 2-0.
For months there has been talk about the possibility of Golden State winning two consecutive NBA titles. That feat is now two wins away from coming to fruition.
“There’s no point in celebrating or jumping up and down to say ‘look at us,'” Curry said. “We are two games away from winning a title, but we still have to do the work. It would be a trap to think that we have solved everything and that we have the formula to defeat Cleveland, which no longer has a chance in the series. We shouldn’t think like that.” But it seems so.
The Warriors’ 33-point lead was their biggest lead in a Finals game in history. They have won the first two duels by a combined difference of 48 points.
“They just beat us,” James said tersely. “We don’t win anything. In no aspect of the game have we been able to overcome them tonight.
Klay Thompson had 17 points for the Warriors, who led by eight points at halftime before steamrolling LeBron and company.
Of the previous 31 teams that have held a 2-0 lead in the final, 28 went on to win.
Cleveland lost Kevin Love in the third quarter with a concussion, putting his participation in Wednesday’s Game 3 at the Cavs in doubt.
James led his team with 19 points, but the Cavaliers return home with a rock and a hard place after suffering seven straight losses to the Warriors.
It is the first time James has lost seven in a row against the same opponent.
