The official Twitter account of NBA officials acknowledged a missed foul call that should have gone against the Golden State Warriors during Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Golden State has been the league's best third-quarter team this season, and the Warriors once again flexed their second-half muscle as they used a 15-3 run to get out to a five-point lead.

Even Curry's high-volume, low-efficiency game alone would sink most teams. They prevailed in game 2 and are now up 2-0 in the series. He will also make considerably less than Durant, who is not a homegrown player. "I remember I was sitting in the third quarter and start of the fourth where I couldn't hear anybody on our side of the ball talking". And their domination doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon, so if they keep winning Golden State will have its place in history.

Curry has displayed awe-inspiring brilliance just about every time he has stepped on the court for a playoff game.

It became tricky this season when each of them was injured for a span, most recently Curry at the start of the playoffs.

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.

He already had a reputation as the type of player who would resort to those types of tactics, and something like this coming from him admittedly isn't surprising. Hill was unable to get a shot off in time and the game went to overtime.

Tristan Thompson has to try and tip in a few on the offensive boards. And it nearly perfectly mirrored what he did a year ago. For a player on the floor to rebound, this is unacceptable.

James is averaging an fantastic 40.0 points, 10.5 assists, and 8.5 rebounds on 55.8 percent shooting from the field and 45.4 percent shooting from long range.

The Warriors also got solid minutes from their big men, with JaVale McGee and Jordan Bell both combining for 20 points on 9-of-12 shooting. They want the other Cavs to have to beat them. JR Smith wound up with the ball but charged toward halfcourt.

The King went for 51 points, eight rebounds and eight assists in the opener, and it wasn't enough. Hood was averaging 16.8 points when he was acquired by Cleveland at the deadline, a scoring average only LeBron is clearing for the Cavs this postseason.

Stephen Curry made nine 3-pointers in Golden State's Game 2 win, and the Warriors, who live by a "Strength In Numbers" slogan, could get back forward Andre Iguodala for Game 3. Cleveland would make a push and Curry would answer. He had just two points in the first half of Game 3 and was 0-for-5 on 3-point attempts when the Warriors went to the locker room at halftime trailing 58-52. There's not much the Cavaliers can do when Curry is on fire like he was on Sunday. The Cavaliers closed the series at their home court by defeating them, but the Pacers played really well throughout the series.

Yet Williams has argued the case for James - a three-time Finals MVP victor including in 2016 against Golden State - to beat Curry, who is in search of his first post-season individual crown.

However, as the Cavs attempted to correctly navigate the switch, Durant pulled up from 33-feet to seal the game and effectively seal Finals for the Warriors.
