Down in a series for the first time in the 2016 NBA Playoffs, the Cleveland Cavaliers had no answer for the physicality and effort, and proved to be no match for the reigning champion Golden State Warriors, and suffered a 110-77 loss in Game 2 of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, Sunday night.
The Cavaliers converted only 28 of their 79 looks from the floor and five of their 23 three-point tries, lost the battle of the boards, 46 to 34, and committed 18 turnovers that resulted in 26 points for the Warriors on the way to their seventh straight win over Cleveland dating back to last year’s NBA Finals.
As a team, the Warriors knocked down 44 of their 81 shots, including 15 three-pointers. Although the Warriors committed 20 turnovers, they made up for the Cavaliers’ extra possessions by blocking nine of Cleveland’s shots.
