Curry posted his first career playoff triple-double with 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, while Kevin Durant recorded an impressive stat line with 33 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, five blocks and three steals.
On the other hand, LeBron James led the Cavaliers with 29 points, 11 rebounds and 14 assists to match a record with his eighth career NBA Finals triple double. Only former Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson had eight prior finals triple doubles and no one else has more than two.
The Warriors remain unscathed in the playoffs, 14-0, and take a 2-0 lead to Cleveland for Wednesday’s Game 3.
