Warriors outclass Cavaliers in the second game

The Golden State Warriors claimed a comfortable 122-103 victory over Cleveland Cavaliers. This put the Warriors in a 2 to nothing lead in the NBA Finals series. Golden State inched closer to secure their third title in four years. The best of seven series will move over to Cleveland for the third and fourth game. Undoubtedly, the star performer was Stephen Curry. He grabbed 33 points for the night which included 9 three pointers. The Warriors always looked comfortable and settled in their regular pattern while Cleveland had to work throughout the game. Kevin Durant also added his name to the sheet notching 26 points with Thompson netting 20. On the other hand, LeBron James had a pretty quiet game with just 29 points as compared to 51 in the previous match. For Cavaliers to have any chance of qualifying, LeBron will need to be at his best. The Warriors started off brilliantly netting 10 of the first 11 attempts. After that, Curry stole the show creating a new record for three pointers. The next game will be crucial for the Cavs if they want to bounce back in the title picture.

Abueva remains missing from Alaska training

Calvin Abueva missed yet another training session on Monday. The player has not been to the training since the PBA all-stars break and even the coach has no idea where he is. Coach Alex Compton has no clue about the beast and claims that he has been missing in action. Abueva was not even seen for the team’s win over Globalport for the Commissioner’s Cup game. Compton further revealed that he did not get any response from the player when contacted. The unexpected missing player will be added to the misfortunes of Alaska as their rookie Jeron Teng was stabbed during a parking lot clash. The player is still in the hospital and looks to be out. Compton is still hopeful that Abueva will be back soon as the Aces are third in the table and look to regain top position.

Stephen Curry sets a new record

As the Golden State Warriors went up two to nothing, Curry enjoyed his fair share of spotlight. The point guard was very impressive against the Cavaliers netting 33 points in Oakland. In doing so, he also set a record for the highest three pointers in NBA finals. He put in nine three pointers as Warriors step closer to attain their third title win in just four years. The previous record of eight was held by Ray Allen for the Celtics in 2010. Curry looked unstoppable while on the ball and many hope he will continue the same for the next game.
