- The Golden State Warriors cruised to a victory on Sunday night beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 122 to 103.

Curry hit five 3s in the fourth quarter as the Warriors turned it into a romp after the Cavaliers were within seven points early in the period.

Judging by his performances in Games 1 and 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers, he is well on his way to capturing his first-ever individual Finals award.

The all-time leader in 3-pointers made in the playoffs is Ray Allen with 385. At times, the Warriors trapped James, forcing the ball from his hands. James produced 15 first-half points on 5-of-11 shooting with 7 rebounds and 8 assists.

Steph Curry catches fire from deep, going 9-for-17 from deep in Game 2.

Game 2 wasn't Curry's most efficient outing (33 points on 11-for-26 shooting from the field) as he targeted Kevin Love as a mismatch.

"He makes tough shots, that's what he does", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. That rang true again on Sunday when Green finished with six points, two rebounds, and one assists on 28.5 percent shooting.

James has 1,298 points in the finals and needs 20 to move ahead of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (1,317) into second place behind Jerry West. Indeed, the Cavs didn't make a shot for nearly five and a half minutes in the second quarter.

He also had nine rebounds and seven assists "and set a good tone for us with his defense", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

James has done so all postseason with an edge, intensity and ability to all-out carry the Cavs - will them to win after win, if you wish.

Not only did the Cavaliers lose series opener, but it lost all of the thrust heading into second game, where the Dubs could completely take advantage of their home-court. Smith may not have realized the game was still tied, and now says that he's not even quite sure anymore what transpired in those few, dramatic moments.
