LeBron James had another tremendous performance in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, but once again it was all for naught as the Golden State Warriors won easily, 122-103, to take a 2-0 lead in the series. But it was Stephen Curry who stole the show with an NBA Finals record nine three-pointers made. Klay Thompson added 20 points playing on a tender left leg to put the defending champions two victories from a repeat title they have talked about since the season began last fall.
Before Game 1 the oddsmakers had Golden State -1000 to win the series but now that number has swelled to -2150 with the Warriors owning a 2-0 lead in the series headed into Cleveland.
The Cavaliers' LeBron James, who scored 51 points in their overtime defeat in game one, was restricted to 29 points on Sunday night.
"Regardless of how the season went, that's a pretty cool deal to accomplish", Curry told reporters.
"I always say that if we focus on that, good things happen individually all across the board".
Despite the offensive fireworks, Warriors coach Steve Kerrsaid it was an improved defensive effort that led to the win.
The Cavaliers have had no answers for the Warriors in the first two games. "We saw Houston do a good job doing that [in the Western Conference Finals] so we piggybacked that".
Asked what was going through his head at that moment, James said he had attempted to call a timeout, admittedly unaware whether or not the Cavs had one amid the chaos.
"I was very proud of our guys, the way we competed in that third quarter because we could have let go of the rope down 13", he said. That was in 2015, when Curry helped the Warriors bring home their first National Basketball Association title since 1975 after defeating the Cavs in six games.
Game 3 is scheduled for Wednesday in Cleveland.
That was just the start for Curry.
"Every shot that he takes that goes in, he has the business of making them", James said.
Halfway through the fourth quarter, the Cavs switched Kevin Love onto Curry, only for the latter to sink an off-balance 28-footer as the shot clock hit the buzzer, despite having briefly lost the ball as he tried to dribble himself free of Love.
Certain shots - particularly this almost 30-foot circus shot to beat the shot clock early in the fourth - will understandably garner the majority of the attention, as it provided Golden State enormous momentum as Cleveland was attempting to make one final push.
2-for-7 - Although he isn't counted on as much as Korver at least in terms of the scoring column, when Jeff Green is the sixth man, like he has been throughout much of the postseason, he must shoot better than just 2-for-7 with six points.
The files, mostly from phones and electronic storage devices, were seized April 9 in raids on Cohen's Manhattan home and office. Ryan protested that the barrage was improper, saying Avenatti was on television at least 170 times , mostly to badmouth Cohen.

Perhaps the most important loss to Markle will be her democratic rights, as the Royals - by convention - do not vote. Meghan was one of the original cast members of the show when it first aired in June 2011.
