In Game 2 of the NBA Finals, Cleveland kept it close for a little while, but Golden State’s Warriors -- again -- appear to just have too much talent for anyone in the league to deal with, especially when Klay Thompson begins shooting like Klay Thompson again.
Thompson, who has struggled for the majority of the 2017 playoffs, starting playing like a guy who once scored an NBA record 37 points in a quarter and had 60 points in a game this season. Behind Thompson (22 points) and fellow all-stars Stephen Curry (32) and Kevin Durant (33), Golden State pulled away for a 132-113 win and a 2-0 lead.
And Curry -- who finished with his first career postseason triple-double -- seemed so confident in his team that he was able to zone out a little mid-game.
Never miss a local story.
Social media reacted. And this basically summed a whole lot of it.
Oh, and this one, too.
Moving on, during the game, LeBron James, already the all-time NBA playoff scorer, hit another historic milestone in Game 2
Of course, James was on the business end of one of the biggest moments from Game 2: a one-one-one duel with Stephen Curry in the third quarter where Curry laid all manner of dribbling moves on James, and scored on a layup.
James, of course, had his moments,too, tying Magic Johnson for most triple-doubles in NBA history and impressing soccer star Neymar Jr. with a particularly impressive slam in the first half.
After she stole the show in Game 1, getting into a mini-feud with Kevin Durant, pop singer Rihanna apparently was not in Oakland for Game 2. Shame. And social media seemed to miss RiRi, too.
After the game, a Cavs fan apparently got frustrated and starting a scuffle, which trended.
