The Warriors, the defending champions, are two games away from their third title in four years.

Stephen Curry #30 of the Golden State Warriors reacts against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the fourth quarter in Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 3, 2018 in Oakland, California.

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. Outside of the stars - Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green - there's not much depth. "At the end of the day, if you don't give effort and you don't play hard, you're never going to give yourself a chance to win". The Warriors are 4.5-point sportsbook favorites in the latest odds for Game 3, with the over-under for total points scored set at 216.5.

"We've got an opportunity to go home and we played some really good basketball on our home floor", said James, who despite protestations - "I only got exhausted once" - seemed to tire against the never-ending, multi-pronged Warriors assault.

"He was tremendous", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr. "You know, nine 3s and seemed to hit the big shot every time we needed one".

James is said to want to remain on the east making the Sixers the the most obvious choice, however he could opt for the Rockets to play alongside best friend Chris Paul. Said no matter who wins this series neither team will go.

The fact that Curry had help, whereas LeBron James didn't, was the story of the match and might be the story of this series.

"They're a unsafe ballclub no matter what", James said.

The Warriors are trying to join Bill Russell's Celtics, the Bulls led by Michael Jordan and the Lakers" trio of title runs fueled by George Mikan in the 1950s, Magic Johnson and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in the "80s, and Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant almost 20 years ago as the only franchises in National Basketball Association history to capture three championships in four years.

There probably weren't too many people who thought Cleveland could be competitive in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Prior to the exchange, this was Curry's 3rd quarter: 0-5 FG shooting, 1 point (tech FT made). They shot 59.5 percent in the first half despite going 6 of 19 on 3s.

Whether it's on the boards, defensively, or in the post, Love must play tougher against Golden State if the Cavaliers want to shock the world.

Last year's NBA Finals MVP made his initial five field goals Sunday, driving right at James on offense and doing all he could to fluster him on defense. Following Game 1, most of the talk coming out of the visitors locker room was about how the referees overturned an offensive foul on Kevin Durant in the final minute of the fourth quarter, as well as other calls the Cavs felt should have gone their way.
