  • NBA Finals: Stephen Curry breaks 3-pointers record in Game Two as Warriors beat Cavaliers to take 2-0 lead

With the Cavs down 103-100, Durant stood defiantly and nearly motionless after dropping his 33-footer - just a few feet from where he made one in Game 3 past year - and effectively ended the fourth straight finals matchup between two teams who have gotten to know each other well since 2015.

Durant's 43 points on 15-of-23 shooting led the way.

The Warriors are trying to join Bill Russell's Celtics, the Bulls led by Michael Jordan and the Lakers" trio of title runs fueled by George Mikan in the 1950s, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the "80s, and Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant almost 20 years ago as the only franchises in National Basketball Association history to capture three championships in four years.

In Cleveland, the rim shrunk for Warriors' sharpshooters Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

Now it would be hard to argue that a two-time league MVP and five-time All-Star is underrated.

Durant said his team is approaching this Game 3 knowing that all those plays will matter again.

Curry, despite being a two-time NBA Champion, has yet to take home the Finals MVP trophy.

The Warriors may have Andre Iguodala back for the first time in the series.

Far from it, in fact.

For the game, Curry finished with 11 points, six assists and five rebounds.

Golden State's duo of Curry and Thompson combined for 21 points on 7-of-27 shooting and 3-of-15 from beyond the arc. He also missed two threes in the period.

On Sunday, uncut TV footage showed James uncomfortably sitting on Cleveland's bench next to Smith, who inexplicably dribbled out the final seconds of regulation.

And when James did get his first bucket.

Curry? No big deal, he made his 370 threes in a mere 88 postseason games... James has 59 career playoff games where he has scored 25 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and dished 5 assists.

3 - You know you are caught up in it when you look at the monitor and realize Steph Curry is 1-for-14 from the floor, 0-for-9 from deep and the Warriors have a lead (96-95) with 3:19 to play. It's never been done, ever, in the history of the game.

With at least two games remaining in this year's Finals, Curry has a legitimate chance at breaking Allen's playoff record this season.

The Cavaliers are certainly not completely out of it yet.

Things quickly went in Golden State's favor after that, though, as the Warriors opened the third with a 17-6 run to take their first lead of the game. The shot, which he took from 33 feet with the shot clock winding down, made it 106-100 with 49.8 seconds to go, sending fans streaming to the exits and ending a second valiant effort from the underdog Cavaliers in the first three games of this series.

"No, that wasn't the same shot", James said when asked to compare Durant's 3 to last year's.
