As has been the case the past several years, the Golden State Warriors are the favorites, at +125.

A similar situation occurred in the summer of 2016, when sportsbooks saw big bets (including one $20,000 wager) show up on Golden State before news broke that Kevin Durant had made a decision to leave Oklahoma City and join the Warriors. The Warriors are 0-4 ATS in their last four games played on two days of rest. All they have to do is take them.

- The Golden State Warriors cruised to a victory on Sunday night beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 122 to 103.

Cleveland's JR Smith went into Sunday night with a lot to prove - and make up for - after his blunder in Game 1 prevented the Cavs from winning in the final seconds of the series opener. Sign up for Mark Medina's private text messaging service.

He finished by shooting 11-of-26 from the floor, 9-of-17 from 3-point range, with 7 rebounds and 8 assists.

Curry made nine 3-point shots, an NBA Finals record. But in the final period, with the Cavaliers still hanging around, Curry displayed his shooting genius, making all five of his three-point attempts and dazzling the crowd with his knack for making contested shots and swishing missiles that others would consider desperation heaves. "We've got to move on, move forward".

Cleveland is off to a good start in what is usually Golden State's quarter.

6 - Kevin Love's been extremely aggressive offensively through the first two games of this series, taking 38 shots combined (16 3-pointers).

Game 3 is in Cleveland on Wednesday.

"This is his fourth Finals and he just looks comfortable out there", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

The all-time leader in 3-pointers made in the playoffs is Ray Allen with 385.

"He's making himself look insane, but that's what he does", Thompson said. After the game Smith described his performance in one word: "terrible". So you can say (that) somebody (should) meet you at the bus, (but) I'm not (going). I ain't gonna meet you at the bus.

There isn't much that Stephen Curry hasn't accomplished throughout his National Basketball Association career. At times, the Warriors trapped James, forcing the ball from his hands. Thompson joked, "it's a good movie". Of course, the fourth quarter didn't go too well.

After James made a 3-pointer to cut the Warriors' lead to 90-83 with 11:04 left, Curry made consecutive 3-pointers to widen the gap to 96-83 with 10:12 remaining. Smith then dribbled toward midcourt as if he was running out the clock and thinking Cleveland had the lead. "It was like dagger after dagger". On the next possession it's Kevin Durant, a 7-footer with the wingspan of a 747 and a renewed defensive focus. He also became the sixth player to ever make 300 3s in the postseason, joining Curry as the Warriors to reach the feat.

After all, Green said he initially "thought there was no chance he was playing".

"Andre is not going to play and Klay, I would call him probable". But Thompson improved overnight Saturday into Sunday.

Despite appearances, Thompson said Green's trash talk doesn't bother him. You never know what happened. "But he's one of the toughest, if not the toughest guy for sure". "But we know this is just getting started".
