Curry sinks NBA Finals record 9 3-pointers in Warriors romp

Chef Curry splashed a Finals record nine three-pointers, while finishing with 33 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds.

"Multiple Golden State Warriors players" told ESPN after the game that they were upset that Perkins refused to move his legs and feet as Steph inadvertently backed into him following a wild shot at the end of the third quarter.

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.

But while the Cleveland Cavaliers struggled to contain the Warriors in a lot of ways on Sunday night - Golden State scored 50 points in the paint on 71 per cent shooting - it was the performance from Curry that underlined the embarrassment of riches that the Warriors have.

Curry's circus shot of a 3-pointer brought a roar to Oracle Arena that even hot play from fellow All-Star teammates Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson couldn't duplicate.

"To be on top of that three-point list is pretty special", Curry said.

"I never woke up and was like, 'All right, let's go get nine threes and get the record.' It was more so about playing the game the right way, having good intentions out there on the court and good things happen". "You know, nine 3s and seemed to hit the big shot every time we needed one". The Warriors inserted McGee into the starting lineup and reaped the rewards before Curry put on the finishing touches with a flurry in the fourth quarter. "I don't think I'm the problem that they want, though, might want to pick another battle".

Once the Cavs defense broke down, they had to repurpose their energy toward stopping McGee and Bell from getting open dunks, and that came at the expense of defending Curry. That note revolves around the usage of Kyle Korver in the 2018 NBA Finals.

Probably the only thing that Stephen Curry doesn't have on the resume is an NBA Finals MVP. "So I have to figure it out as it goes".

"They're a risky ballclub no matter what", James said. James had 10 points, while Curry led Warriors with seven points in the frame. But through three quarters, the Warriors made 20 of 24 shots from the lane.

National Basketball Association officials said via Twitter, "We missed this one - it should have been a foul".

And while Game 3 tips off in Cleveland tomorrow night, James still gets questions about his Game 1 reactions. But if Golden State is going to get Stephen Curry in full? "We know that come Wednesday, we're going to have to be better", Love said.

The water did not work for James, as he infamously got severe cramps late in the fourth quarter and had to sit out the final four minutes of the game.
