OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Draymond Green scored 28 points, Stephen Curry added 18 and the Golden State Warriors ran away in the second half to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-77 in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night.
Klay Thompson added 17 for the Warriors, who led by eight at the half before turning it into a blowout. The Warriors lead the series 2-0. Of the previous 31 teams to lead the title series 2-0, 28 went on to win the title.
Cleveland lost Kevin Love in the third quarter to a concussion, putting his status for Game 3 on Wednesday in Cleveland in serious doubt. LeBron James had a team-best 19 points for the Cavaliers, who have now lost seven consecutive games to the Warriors.
It’s the first time James has ever lost seven straight to the same opponent.
