The Golden State Warriors destroyed the Cleveland Cavaliers in game 2 of the NBA finals 2018 GSW vs Cavaliers on the back of a stunning show by their ace Steph Surry. Scoring a record nine three-pointers in the finals, Curry scored a massive 33 points to run riot on the night as a GSW side inspired by him beat LeBron James’s Cleveland 122-103. After having won the first game in over time, a second consecutive win for the defending champions saw them go into a 2-0 lead as they go into a three match away run at the Cavaliers home.
The Cavaliers looked intent to seal another win right from the first minute as they played an aggressive game, leaving no stone unturned. Their approach to the match was justified as they dominated all four quarters of the game, leading in all of them to comfortably win on the day by 19 points.
In the NBA Finals 2018 GSW vs Cavaliers, the first defeat seems to have really gotten to the Cavaliers as they looked gassed in the second game. With the home crowd sarcastically giving a standing ovation to JR Smith along with chants of MVP for him, the Cleveland side clearly looked perturbed by the hostile environment they were greeted to. This only added to their woes, as a lethargic and clearly inferior Cavalier team was unable to muster up any kind of meaningful challenge at any point in the match. Cleveland had more steals and more rebounds, with fewer turnovers as they dominated the entire proceedings. The trio of Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Steph Curry once again rallied around to take GSW to a 2-0 lead. The statistic that they shot only 42% to the Warriors’ 57% is a clear indication of the poor quality of game the Cavaliers offered on the night.
With the series now shifting to the Cavaliers home turf, they need to get back to the drawing board immediately if they are to avoid a 4-0 drubbing. As things go for now we could very well see a repeat of the 2017 finals which saw GSW sweep the floor under Cavaliers feet by 4-1.
