Curry, a 30-year-old guard, broke the old mark of 8 3-pointers in a Finals game set by Ray Allen of Boston in 2010.

Curry scored a game-high 33 points in a 122-103 win over the Cleveland Cavalaiers in Game 2 on Sunday, and broke a Finals record in the process.

In seven-and-a-half seasons with the Raptors, Calderon became a standout for the Canadian club, setting an National Basketball Association record by sinking 98.1 per cent of his free throws in the 2008-09 season, when he averaged an National Basketball Association career-best 12.8 points a game.

All the chatter is that underdog Cleveland could be completely deflated from the way it flopped in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

After losing Game 1 in dramatic fashion, the Cavaliers looked gassed from the start on Sunday and couldn't keep up with Golden State's speed.

George Hill came back from missing a key free throw in Game 1 to score 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting. Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant are going to shoot well, too. Listen they've had a two-time MVP sit out playoff games and they've won, all right.

"The game's over. There's nothing we can do about it", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. He had 26 points, 7 assists, and 9 rebounds. James is working twice as hard, playing 48 minutes in each of the previous two games. Just 2 for 10 at halftime, he made all four shots, including three 3-pointers, and is up to 20 points. The Cavs lost 124-114.




Curry also passed LeBron James for the most 3-pointers made in NBA Finals history with 90.

"They're damn good with him and they're damn good without him", James said.

But in Game 2, Cleveland remained competitive, getting some solid outside shooting from Kevin Love and making a game of it heading into the fourth quarter.

Forgetting those final few seconds of Game 1 needs to be a priority for the Cavs.

What a start for JaVale McGee and the Warriors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Kerr says Thompson "was doing better this morning when he checked in with the training staff, so I'm hopeful he will play".

Warriors coach Steve Kerr offered only moderate praise for his team's defense on LeBron, saying that "we at least made him somewhat uncomfortable at times".
