Game 2 of the NBA Finals was… a lot like Game 1 of the NBA Finals, just without Rihanna.
The Warriors are just completely ridiculous. Steph Curry looks healthier than last season and is back to his best, while Kevin Durant is showing why he’s probably the best offensive player in the league.
The Cavaliers hung on for awhile. For most of the first half the Warriors were dominating but the Cavs kept it close, always countering with a three or a mini-run of their own to stay within striking distance.
In the second half the Warriors just pulled away. At one point in the third quarter LeBron went to the bench gasping for air, looking like he had just run a marathon. He’s out here putting it all on the line just to stay close to the Warriors, but it doesn’t look like anyone could beat this team right now.
But, as always, the real action was on social media. Although there was no Rihanna drama in Game 2, Basketball twitter still brought it.
We put together some of the highlights.

Last game, Tristan Thompson, J.R. Smith, Kyle Korver and Deron Williams were 1-for-14. https://t.co/edNR2ATFvf

I mean, look at that line: 33 points on 22 shots for KD, 5 blocks, 3 steals, monster rebounding. Help D was incredible all game. Masterpiece

Trying to defend a heat check Klay Thompson/Kevin Durant pick and roll is not fair.

Lakers had 10 turnovers in that game. Warriors just turned it over 20 times. https://t.co/WAaf1vd0B5

Cavs locker room has a strong reefer aroma to it tonight. Hey, it's Cali. You're down 2-0 and it's all about pain control. #NBAFinals
