Klay Thompson and the Warriors soar past the Cavaliers on Sunday (Monday, Manila time) to take a 2-0 lead in the National Basketball Association finals.

Curry is up to 22 points for the Warriors, with seven already in the third quarter.

He even joined Magic Johnson and Jerry West as the only players to reach 300 career assists in the finals.

The Warriors are shooting 55 percent so far. Twelve of Golden State's wins were by double-digits.

This one is looking much different.

James has 18 points, 10 assists and six rebounds already. And just for good measure, Klay Thompson chose to wake up, adding 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting. If it's not Steph Curry hitting a 3-pointer from 30 feet, he's putting LeBron James on skates and flipping in a layup off the glass.

Draymond Green is back, after three first-quarter fouls.

Another standing ovation for Steve Kerr. Guard Stephen Curry had a triple-double of his own but also committed eight of the Warriors' 20 turnovers. That's two more than the Warriors had as a team in Game 1.

"He's been around, the last couple weeks especially, giving us input and giving us what he's got", Curry said of Kerr. His ability to get to the line repeatedly enabled the Warriors to erupt for 40 points in the opening frame.

LeBron James has 10 points and five assists to lead Cleveland. Indeed, they were just three points down going into halftime.

LeBron James is attacking. Here are some takeaways from Game 2.

It was Cleveland 14, Golden State 13 after just the first 4:13 of the first quarter. "He's one of the greatest all time", Brown said.

Kevin Love started 4 for 4 for the Cavs, but was briefly shaken up and seemed to be favoring his left side. He even made a shot while falling to the ground. "If we play that game in Cleveland, we're not winning".

There are no changes to the starting lineups from Game 1 for either team, which is not a surprise.

The Commerce Department said spending on private construction also fell by 0.7% to an annual rate of USD943.3 billion in May. A key factories report released overnight revealed activity ticked up in May after two consecutive months of slowing.

LeBron James scored 10 and Kevin Love added nine in the first quarter for the Cavaliers.

Leading the Warriors' effort - again - was Kevin Durant, with33 points.

The big nights from the former MVPs made coach Steve Kerr a victor in his return to the bench after a more than six-week absence following complications from back surgery. Kerr's picture was shown on the videoboard as the fans stood and cheered. The Warriors squandered a 3-1 lead to the Cavs a year ago to miss a repeat. "It was 2-0 past year, we lost".

There are some impressive streaks that merit some mention going into Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Golden State equaled its four turnovers from Game 1 in the initial 5:12. The Pittsburgh Penguins won 14 in a row during their 1992 and 1993 runs in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

This is the 41st playoff series for James. "Just having a guy that has been here, done that before, has so much confidence in everything that we do and walks the walk, allows us to be ourselves and be confident in approaching game two". Only Tim Duncan (63) and Robert Horry (61) have more.

The Warriors pulled away again, outscoring the Cavaliers 35-24 in the third quarter to take a 102-88 lead into the fourth quarter in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

This could provide an emotional boost for the Warriors players heading into Game 2.

"There's an old saying, 'You don't miss the water 'til the well runs dry, '" the 80-year-old Attles said after receiving the Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement Award.

It's Comeback Night at Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

"They won two games", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said, "now we've got to go home and regroup". "We have enough guys who can score on this team that if one guy can't get it going, we can go other places".

More help from his teammates would go a long way too.

Kerr announced before Game 2 on Sunday that he is returning to the sideline the first time since the first round of the playoffs against Portland.

"I thought for the most part with the game plan that we had we tried to execute it as close as possible", James said.
