Golden State Warriors: Three stars after Game 2 victory over Cavaliers

Golden State Warriors: Three stars after Game 2 victory over Cavaliers

In Game 2 on Sunday, the Golden State Warriors became the second team since the three-point line was added to shoot 50 percent from the field, 40 percent on three-pointers, and 90 percent at the free throw line during an NBA Finals game.

Although the NBA Finals has not been very competitive so far, TV networks are still interested in the league's two most high-profile teams - now playing in the big event for a record three years in a row.

Golden State's effort wasn't quite as pristine.

The Warriors won despite committing 20 turnovers, a stat that caught Kerr's eye.

Also starring Dhanush and Megha Akash in the lead the movie is currectly scheduled to hit the screens on October 11, 2017. The film features Kajal Aggarwal , Catherine Tresa and Navadeep in lead roles and Anup Rubens is the music composer.

A great transition team with solid "D" and lethal finishers like James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love.

It's no secret how the Warriors lost a 3-1 lead last June.

By the fourth quarter, Curry laid down and appeared to take a richly deserved garbage-time nap. That strategy worked to perfection.

High octane, enormous energy, huge shots and unbelievable talent on both sides of the floor, yet the Warriors have dominated the scoreboard and have made it look relatively easy in taking a 2-0 series lead on Cleveland after a 132-113 victory Sunday night. Defense travels. Shots often do not.

The Warriors' four-headed monster has been able to obliterate any notion the Cavs had of defending this team, bringing a whole other dimension with a former MVP and bona fide scorer in Durant. He did not immediately miss any time and went on to lead the Warriors to their first National Basketball Association title in 40 years. Livingston was a ideal 3-of-3.

But it's certainly bold to say they're already one of the best duos ever, even if Van Gundy's comment was meant more to highlight their collective skill than their résumé to date. "Playing smart. Trying to make them work for everything that they get".

That was especially the case for a brief stretch in the second quarter, when Steve Kerr rolled out a lineup of Curry, Livingston, Iguodala, Durant and Green. He can drive to the basket, dunk on you.

The offense picked up thanks to 27 points from Kevin Love and the Cavs scored 22 more points than in the opener in a faster-paced game, but that also helped the Warriors improve their shooting from 43 percent to 52 percent as Cleveland had a weaker defensive on the floor.

Make or miss, shots like that are ones Cleveland is happy to give to Golden State.
