Steve Kerr: Andre Iguodala likely 'questionable' for Game 3 of The Finals

The Golden State Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 122-103 on Sunday evening to take a commanding two-game lead in the NBA Finals series.

And it was Curry who shot them to move closer to another title, as the Splash Brother drilled nine three-pointers - an NBA Finals record - on his way to a game-high 33 points.

Curry had missed a 3-pointer at the end of the quarter and was trying to make his way back to the Warriors' bench.

Yet despite their success against the Celtics and the fact the Cavs held their ground for the most part to open up this series, the last thing James wants his team to do is ease up.

Ray Allen was the previous record holder with eight.

Despite the offensive fireworks, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said it was an improved defensive effort that led to the win. "Yeah, he was fantastic". "Tough shot taker, tough shot maker". "That's what he does", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. ". Once he releases it and he sees the basket, he usually makes it".

Kevin Durant added 26 points for the Warriors, who were also boosted by the return of Klay Thompson from injury. "I don't know if I had enough time because I was kind of a little bit still in shock of what was going on at that point in time", James said.

"We're happy with the way we played".

Gaza crisis: Nigeria condemns killing of 58 Palestinian protesters
Gaza protesters have hurled flaming tires, firebombs and stones toward Israeli troops, and tried to attack the border fence. Israel regards all of the city, including the eastern sector it annexed after the 1967 conflict, as its capital.

However, that sting got worse when a uncut video emerged of James' reaction during the timeout just moments after the game went to overtime.

About 30 seconds later, Warriors forward Kevin Durant had the ball on the right wing, after the Cavs had already done a Love-Smith switch, with Smith again on McGee.

"It was like dagger after dagger". "You played great defence, and he pulled up and hit a three in your face".

So here's a question for the entire Eastern Conference: Can you really not beat this team? J.R. Smith dribbled out a clock with the game tied.

Although Curry seemed to not miss a shot in the second half, Hill did at least decently well on both ends of the floor for much of the game.

"I'm always a person the fans like to heckle". And they told me, yes. "It's been a long time since we've had a dynasty", Barkley said. "He's got to keep taking his shots". So I don't feel good about it. Apparently it's not appropriate to be heartbroken over losing an NBA Finals game in the most ridiculous of ways. "We could have let go of the rope down 13".

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. We did a good job. Shaun Livingston is fine as a backup, but he probably shouldn't get extended run alongside the big scorers, and he's not an outside shooter.
