2016 NBA Finals: Green, Curry help Warriors register second consecutive win

Details from the second NBA Final.

Draymond Green was the star for the hosts

The Golden State Warriors took a 2-0 lead in the 2016 NBA Finals, after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-77 in the second game at the Oracle Arena on Sunday night.

Draymond Green was the star of the night for the defending champs, netting 28 points and he was ably supported by MVP Stephen Curry with 18 points and Klay Thompson, who contributed 17 points.

LeBron James was the star for the Cavs with 18 points, but desperately lacked support from the rest of the teammates as his side succumbed to a second consecutive defeat.

The talisman admitted that they were beaten by a better side on the day and at no point, were he or his side in the game.

"They just beat us.We didn't win anything. No points of the game did we beat them in anything,” James said.

Curry, who almost single-handedly got the reigning champs into the final two stage of the competition, refused to take anything for granted at this stage, despite fully knowing that he and his team were a mere two wins away from clinching a second successive title.

“There's no point in celebrating or jumping up and down saying, `Look at us.' We're two games away from winning a championship, but we still have to go out and get the job done.

“It's a trap to think that we've figured things out, that we have the perfect formula to beat Cleveland and they have no chance in the series. That's not how we're supposed to think,” he added.
