Warriors go up 2-0, improve to 14-0 in postseason play.
The outcome of Game 2 of the NBA Finals was a lot like Game 1, the Golden State Warriors cruised to a 19 point victory over the Cavs, improving to an NBA-record 14-0 in the post season and moving within two wins of taking back the Larry O'Brien trophy.
Once again, Kevin Durant was dominant, leading all scorers with 33 points and a game-high 13 rebounds. Additionally, Steph Curry recorded his first NBA Finals triple-double, recording 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.
The highlight of the night came on a play midway through the third quarter where Steph Curry put LeBron in a blender with a dizzying dribbling display on his way to the rim. Unfortunately, it later became clear that he double-dribbled, but that doesn't change the outcome of the game and in the moment it had #NBATwitter going bananas.
Game 3 will be in Cleveland on Wednesday. Check out all of the best reactions from last night's Game 2 below.

Steph didn’t break LeBron’s ankles, he just wore the treads off his shoes— J.A. Adande (@jadande) June 5, 2017
