The Warriors established a 2-0 lead in the series with a 132-113 win in Game 2 on Sunday night. Golden State has won and covered the spread in three straight meetings with the Cavs. The Warriors are now 81-15 overall, 37-10 on the road and 50-43-3 against the spread. Cleveland is 63-34 overall, 36-11 at home and 44-49-4 against the spread.

Golden State improve to 14-0 in the playoffs with Sunday’s win. The Warriors didn’t play their best in the win, as they committed 20 turnovers. Still, it didn’t keep them from winning by 19 points. Kevin Durant had another big game, putting up 33 points with 13 rebounds, 6 assists, 5 blocks and 3 steals. Stephen Curry added 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Cleveland had just 9 turnovers in the loss but shot only 8-of-29 from 3-point land. LeBron James had a triple-double of 29 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds. Kevin Love added 27 points while Kyrie Irving had 19 points.

Bet on the NBA Finals

Cleveland had been rolling along in the playoffs until running into Golden State. The Cavs had covered in every road game in the playoffs before this series. However, the Warriors had no trouble handling them at home. Golden State has actually been better on the road at covering in the playoffs as well, as they are perfect against the spread on the road. Many expect Cleveland to bounce back tonight, but the Cavs defense just doesn’t have what it takes to hang with the Warriors. Cleveland would have to shoot exceptionally well to win and cover and I don’t see it happening.
