Warriors Rout Cavs 132-113 In NBA Finals Game 2

The Golden State Warriors routed the Cleveland Cavaliers 132-113 in Oakland to take a 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals, as injured coach Steve Kerr returned to the sidelines.

 

It followed on the heals of Warriors’ 113-91 game 1 blowout on Thursday, as the Dubs with new superstar addition Kevin Durant have looked unbeatable thus far in the series.

 

KD had 33 points with 13 rebounds and 6 assists, Stephen Curry had 32 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds, while Klay Thompson added 22 points for Golden State in the crushing win.

 

But despite the offensive explosion (Durant, Curry and Thompson each sank 4 threes apiece), it was KD’s defense that was the difference.

 

Durant had a whopping 5 blocks, playing 41 minutes and picking up the slack for the team’s top defender Draymond Green who was in foul trouble,

 

None of KD’s blocks was more emphatic than his last rejection of a Kevin Love hook shot in the fourth quarter that he palmed and smothered.

 

“Kev’s defense was unreal,” Steve Kerr told reporters. “Probably the key to the whole game.”

 

“When Draymond went out, I just tried to do my best to help everybody out,” added Durant. “He’s so good at just sniffing out plays before they happen. And so I just tried to follow his lead with that. I learned so much from him throughout the season.”

 

For the Cavaliers, LeBron James had 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists, Kevin Love added 27 points, while Kyrie Irving scored 19, but it wasn’t enough against the offensive and defensive juggernaut that was the Warriors.

 

“We have to figure out how we can be better in game 3,” said James.

 

Game 3 is Wednesday in Cleveland.
