2017 NBA Finals -- Warriors crush Cavaliers, 132​-​113​, to take ​2-0 lead (Photos)


PhilBoxing.com




OAKLAND -- ​After being blown out in Game 1 by 22 points, the Cleveland ​Cavaliers ​made significant adjustments that saw a more physical defense and a more aggressive approach on the offensive end. ​

​But after Game 2 was played out at the Oracle Arena, the Golden State Warriors still won going away, 132-113, for a comfortable 2-0 lead in these 2017 NBA Finals.

Lebron James ​made good on his promise to attack the Warriors by finishing with a triple double --- 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists --- but he alone couldn't carry Cleveland to victory as the Warriors shot a high 51.7 percent from the field, including 18 of 43 from 3-point range.

​Like they've done throughout these playoffs, the Warriors came out firing from all cylinders after the halftime break, slowly pulling away from the Cavs, who were out-scored 65-49 in the third and fourth quarters.

​Kevin Durant led the way with 33 points, 11 rebounds and 6 assists while Steph Curry recorded a triple-double with 32 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. Saddled with foul trouble, Draymond Green logged just 24 minutes and had a quiet 12 points, but Shaun Livingston and Ian Clark stepped up to the plate with 10 points apiece.

Steve Kerr and Klay Thompson ​also joined the fray.​

After being ​un​able to coach ​for ​most of the​se ​playoff​s​​,​ ​coach ​Kerr felt good enough to suit up and be back ​on​ the sidelines for Golden State.

"It's awesome, I'm so excited." Mike did a phenomenal job though." Klay Thompson said on Kerr's return.

Klay Thompson ​has ​struggled ​so far ​but ​he ​broke the s​lump​ in Game 2 with 22 points on 8 of 12 shooting.

Kyrie Irving scored 19 points and 7 assist​s​, while Kevin Love added 27 points​ and 7 boards​.

Despite Cleveland taking 11 more shots and ​creating 20 turnovers, the Warriors still won by 19​.

How can the Cavaliers beat the ​n​ew Golden State Warriors? Home cooking maybe? The proud fans possibly?

I guess we will have to wait for Wednesday 9:00 pm ET on ABC, as the NBA Finals shift to ​the Quicken Loans Arena in ​Cleveland. (JSM)
