8:07 – We’re live at the Oracle Arena for Game 2 of the NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors will look to take a 2-0 lead, the Cleveland Cavaliers will try to even things up at 1-1, and Andre Iguodala will do whatever it takes to keep this from happening again.
1Q 5:54 – Cavs are up 10-8. Andrew Bogut has given the Warriors some great minutes early on, finishing a huge alley-oop and blocking two shots.
NO SOUP FOR YOU!
1Q 2:57 – Golden State’s up 17-13. Cleveland has really struggled to knock down shots, hitting only 6-20 from the floor. Maybe that’s because Bogut is erasing shots left and right. He blocked 4 shots in the first 8 minutes.
End of 1Q – The Cavs are up 21-19. James hasn’t scored yet and is 0-5 from the floor. But he does have 5 assists, 3 rebounds, and 3 steals. Thompson lead Cleveland with 8 points, and Green lead Golden State with 6 points.
Poor Iggy. Dude’s groin can’t catch a break this series.
2Q 10:38 – Cleveland’s up 26-22, and LeBron scored his first bucket of the night.
2Q 9:36 – The Cavs are up 28-27. LeBron had a huge dunk after a nice feed from Delly.
2Q 5:09 – Golden State’s up 41-30. This GIF pretty much sums up how the last 6 minutes have gone for the Cavs.
Kevin Love is still down on the court after taking a Harrison Barnes elbow to the head. Let’s hope it’s not serious.
2Q 3:38 – The Warriors are up 42-35, and Draymond Green has been on fire. He’s scored 18 points on 7-10 shooting from the floor.
Halftime – The Warriors will take a 52-44 lead to the half. The Cavs were down by 15 late in the 2nd quarter, but they were able to finish strong to keep this game from getting out of hand.
Green leads all scorers with 18 points. Curry has 12 points, but he also has 3 fouls, which is definitely something to keep an eye on. Thompson scored 8 points on 3-9 shooting from the floo.
James has been carrying the load for the Cavs. He had 14 points, 6 rebounds, 7 assists, and 4 steals in the first half. Irving and Love have combined for only 9 points on 4-14 shooting from the floor.
Cleveland had a terrible shooting half, making only 35.6% from the floor. They have done a nice job in the turnover battle, though. They’ve turned it over only 5 times while forcing 9 turnovers.
3Q 10:05 – GSW are up 55-46. Sloppy start to the 2nd half, as both teams turned it over twice.
3Q 5:58 – Golden State’s up 67-53, and it is not looking good for the Cavs. Love went to the locker room with an injury, Curry went to the bench with his 4th foul, and Klay hit a 3 from the parking lot.
End of 3Q – The Warriors are up 82-62 and this one is over, folks. Green is playing out of his mind, as he has 28 points on 11-20 shooting from the floor.
James now has 8 turnovers after a rough quarter, but at least he had another huge dunk.
Definitely adding this move to my dance repertoire.
Such a pure stroke.
It’s all Warriors.
4Q 2:10 – Golden State’s up 100-75. What a disappointing night of basketball.
Lue is starring in a real life horror movie.
It’s good to be the king.
Final – The Warriors won Game 2 110-77. Talk about a bloodbath. Green lead all scorers with 28 points on 11-20 shooting from the floor. Curry chipped in 18 and Thompson had 17.
James lead the Cavs with 19 points and their second leading scorer was Richard Jefferson with 12. Having Jefferson’s ancient ass as your second leading scorer is not exactly a recipe for success.
Cleveland made a putrid 35.4% of their shots from the floor. If they can’t figure things out on offense, they are going to get swept and that’s fine by me. Bring on the free Taco Bell.
