“Man, we almost had them,” said Cavaliers fans everywhere. In what fans hoped would be a chance for the Cavaliers to tie up this years finals 1-1 at the end of game two, they did everything but what was expected and that was to win.
It was a well known fact that the chances of the Warriors actually losing at home were slim to none considering the fact that they have a record of 32-9 at home. But the Cavaliers proved to put up a good fight, well at first.
Within minutes of the first quarter, the Cavaliers came in with force and took the first lead of the game. But even with a lead they couldn’t get comfortable and think that would be the end of it. The warriors were never too far behind and were definitely putting up a good fight. Center, Andrew Bogut, was a force to be reckoned with when approaching the basket, with four massive blocks in the first quarter. But even with great blocks, the Cavaliers were definitely playing hard ball completing nine turnovers. Even with a 21-19 at the end of the quarter, Lebron James accounted for zero points.
With the start of the second quarter, Draymond Green came into play. Leading the team with six points, Green came with back to back three pointers giving the Warriors a 37-30 lead with 7:28 left in the quarter. Green wrapped up the first half with a total of 18 points as they led over the Cavaliers going into halftime 52-44.
The opportunity for a comeback was more than available. But if you want it you got to take it. And maybe the Cavaliers wanted it but actions on the court proved otherwise. Although they tried to keep the score deficit low, they were never to comeback and once again take the lead. Within the last minute of the third quarter Klay Thompson made a 26-foot three pointer sealing the Warrior’s lead of 82-62. A horrible 20 point deficit going into the final 12 minutes.
And with the little last bit of hope, it was certainly taken away as splash brother, Steph Curry, hit a game sealer three point within the first minute of the last quarter. And just with the powers of the players off the bench, the Golden State Warriors were once again able to remain victorious in the 110-77 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Will it take a road trip back to the city of Cleveland in order for the Cavaliers to actually put up a good fight and win a game? We can only see with game three.
