In game two the Cavaliers matched the point total of the Warriors from game one. Unfortunately for them, the Warriors scored 132 points. Dassalot. Up 2-0 in the series, the Dubs look to keep it going as the series heads to Cleveland for the first of two games.
Who: Golden State Warriors vs Cleveland Cavaliers
What: NBA Finals Game three
When: 6:00pm tonight (9pm ET)
Where: Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland OH
Series total: Warriors lead 2-0
Just like game one, it was Kevin Durant leading all scorers. He put up 33 points in the contest to give him 71 over two finals games. He was also once again followed by Stephen Curry who added 32 points to give him 60 points in the series.
LeBron’s was doing work, putting up a triple double in the game with 28 points, 11 rebounds, and 14 assists. But he was once again overshadowed because Curry also had a triple double with 32 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists.
Thus far the Cavs have run into a buzzsaw in the Warriors who still have yet to lose a game this postseason. But just so we are grounded in reality, the Warriors were up 2-0 in last year’s finals heading to Cleveland. The Cavs won game three of that series and after going down 3-1 would come back to win the championship. After that experience I highly doubt the Warriors are taking anything for granted.
