In Game 1 of the NBA Finals, the Warriors needed a little help from JR Smith and overtime to get the win. Game 2 was a different story with Steph Curry breaking the single-game record for the most three-pointers.
Curry finished with 33 points on 11-of-26 shooting while hitting 9 of 17 3-pointers and leading the Dubs to a 122-103 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“He was tremendous,” said Warriors coach Steve Kerr. “You know, nine threes, and seemed to hit the big shot every time we needed one. But yeah, he was fantastic.”

Curry beat a record previously set by former Celtics player Ray Allen who made eight 3-pointers against the Lakers in Game 2 of the 2010 Finals between Boston and Los Angeles. “It’s a pretty cool deal to accomplish knowing who’s held the record.”
“Every shot that he takes, he has the business of making them,” LeBron James said. “That’s what he does. So we shouldn’t be surprised or deflated at it. Take the ball out, move it forward and try to execute on the other end.”
Game 3 will be in Cleveland on Wednesday Night.
