Thompson (ankle) expects to play Game 2

Thompson (ankle) expects to play Game 2

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

James is already the career leader in finals 3-pointers with 83, but Stephen Curry is closing fast and only two behind him. He'd sniffed the record before, hitting seven 3-pointers in three separate Finals games.

The Warriors, who never trailed, seized a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 series, which shifts to Cleveland for Game 3 and 4 on Wednesday, June 6, and Friday, June 8.

LeBron James played well again in Game 2 on Sunday night against the Golden State Warriors.

The all-time leader in 3-pointers made in the playoffs is Ray Allen with 385.

After an overtime opener loss James called one of the worst defeats of his career, the Cavaliers couldn't play Golden State as close, with Curry and his teammates thwarting every threat. Kevin Durant was the picture of efficiency, scoring his 26 points on 10 for 14 shooting and adding nine rebounds, seven assists and two blocks.

Klay Thompson also started 2 for 2, showing no signs of trouble with his ankle that was sore after a Game 1 collision.

"He makes tough shots, that's what he does", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. James had a monster game to keep Cleveland in it through, pouring in 51 points to go with eight boards and eight assists. The Warriors may have a harder time getting easy shots in the paint should Thompson play with more focus and determination. With that being said, we still fought and clawed back at the end of the quarter, being down four, which was good for us.

Instead of pondering the title he didn't win, Calderon is expected about the one he might yet get with Cleveland. Whatever was going through Smith's head, the miscommunication was obvious and highlights the troubles facing Cleveland going into Game 2.

Las Vegas is thinking Golden State in Game 2 of the NBA Finals - and big. When told that cameras appeared to catch him saying "I thought we were ahead", to LeBron James, Smith said, "I might have said that. If I was betting, I would say Klay is playing [Sunday] just based on who he is and his attitude today, for sure".
