Cleveland Cavaliers have me very, very anxious -- Terry Pluto

It is also the kind of performance that could set Curry up for his first Finals MVP award.

Stephen Curry set an NBA Finals record with nine 3-pointers as he scored 33 points in Golden State's 122-103 win Sunday. The fact that James has been able to almost double these type of outings that Jordan had (six) in his NBA career does speak highly about not only his play on the floor but nine NBA Finals appearances. This is exactly the sort of thing that you fear when you waste an opportunity to steal a road victory against the Warriors the way the Cavs did in Game 1.

When word came down from the National Basketball Association that Tristan Thompson only would receive a $25,000 (U.S.) fine for his aggressive actions at the end of Game 1 of the National Basketball Association final, the Cavaliers centre admitted he was grateful not to be suspended for Sunday night's Game 2 against the Warriors.

The all-time leader in 3-pointers made in the playoffs is Ray Allen with 385.

The Warriors rolled into the locker room with a 59-46 lead at halftime of Game 2. Golden State was led by Steph Curry's 29 points while Kevin Durant scored 26 points. They were mocking Smith for his failure to remember the right score at the end of Game 1.

The persistent Knights earned a power play and cut the Caps' lead to 3-2 late in the second on Theodore's shot through traffic. Brayden McNabb , a defenseman for the Vegas Golden Knights , smashed him against the boards with a forceful check.

Curry also passed LeBron James for the most 3-pointers made in NBA Finals history with 90. It ended up with the Golden State Warriors winning 124-114. James had a monster game to keep Cleveland in it through, pouring in 51 points to go with eight boards and eight assists. It's no secret that the linchpin has been LeBron James. The no-call generated fierce protest from James and the entire Cleveland bench, and coach Tyronn Lue, who received only a single technical foul during the regular season, was assessed one.

What a start for JaVale McGee and the Warriors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. (James) said something. I said something, and then Tristan lost his mind for a second, and that became a distraction from the fact that we were closing out an overtime game.

"They're damn good with him and they're damn good without him", James said.

Forgetting those final few seconds of Game 1 needs to be a priority for the Cavs.

"I never like to think back and say what if", Calderon said.
