Curry's triple-double leads Warriors to Game 2 rout

The Cleveland Cavaliers put up a fight, again, through two quarters, and again, fell apart in the third due to an overwhelming effort from the Golden State Warriors in a 132-113 loss in Sunday's Game 2.

A healthy Curry followed up a 28-point Game 1 with his first postseason triple-double on Sunday with 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. Only former Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson had eight prior finals triple doubles. By game time nothing had changed and Mike Brown coached the first of 11 consecutive playoff wins prior to Sunday night's Game 2 of the National Basketball Association finals.

"When you've got somebody doing you like that, it's just like a burning fire in their eye and you know you don't stand a chance", Green said.

The NBA Finals head to Cleveland for Game 3 Wednesday night.

The Warriors have done quite fine without their coach, who hadn't been on the sidelines since April 19 due to complications from back surgery that also caused him to miss games last season.

James, who said the addition of Kevin Durant to the Warriors line-up this season made them a "different team", declined to reveal why he did not attend a formal news conference after the game. "He's been such a big piece of our success the last three years, obviously", James said. Kevin Love added 27 points, and Kyrie Irving was struggling once again with 19 points but with bad percentage from the field making only 8 shots of 23. They split the two games at home before reeling off three straight wins to become the fourth team to win the title after losing the first two games.

As previous year, the Cavaliers trail 2-0 heading into two games at the Quicken Loans Arena.

"I'm going to pull out the "Win one for the Gipper" speech", Kerr joked. Golden State G Klay Thompson played in his 78th career playoff game, breaking a tie with SG Jeff Mullins for the most in Warriors franchise history.

Not even LeBron James, at his ultimate best, could deny Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors when they're absolutely clicking.

"When Draymond went out, I just tried to do my best to help everybody out", Durant said.

Having Kerr there sure did - the Warriors felt whole again. We love his voice. Cleveland shot 3 of 20 on 3s in the first half and 8 for 29 total. The Warriors led by as many as 12 points, but LeBron James has been his usual outstanding self in the first two quarters. But one has to wonder - if the Warriors go on to sweep the seemingly out-matched Cavs in these Finals, just how fulfilling will it be for Durant?
