Stephen Curry was on fire from behind the arc Sunday night as the Golden State Warriors took on the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. During the fourth quarter, he set a new NBA Finals record when he drained his ninth three-pointer of the contest.

Curry attempted 17 to get his nine, and he had 33 total points on 11-of-26 shooting from the field.

His made three gave the Warriors a 114-93 lead in this one, prompting head coach Steve Kerr to empty the bench. Golden State, at the conclusion of this game, will hold a 2-0 lead over the Cavaliers in this NBA Finals series, which is now headed to Cleveland for Game 3.
