The Cleveland Cavaliers, led by their fearless champion LeBron James, gave it everything they had on Sunday night during Game 2 of the NBA Finals. But in the end, Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors were just too strong at home.
Curry went off, scoring 33 points and setting a new NBA record for most three-pointers in an NBA Finals game. For his part, James was just one rebound shy of a triple-double, going for 29 points, nine rebounds and 13 assists.
The Cavs went on a run during the third quarter to pull to within five points, but then Curry and Co. stomped on the accelerator, winning by the blowout score of 122-103. Now the series is headed to Cleveland, where the Cavaliers are in win-or-die mode for Game 3.

If the #Cavs don't win Game 3, this series doesn't make it back to Oakland.

How come the media & the league doesn’t say anything about LeBron walking on the court at the end of blowouts while the clock is still running? #NBAFinals not the first time (and yes he’s not the only one but he does it more than others)
