Warriors take 2-0 lead over Cavaliers in NBA finals

Golden State Warriors took a 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals with a dominant 132-113 victory over Cleveland Cavaliers.

Kevin Durant hit a game-high 33 points, while Stephen Curry recorded his first play-off triple-double, with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists.

LeBron James made a record-equalling eighth play-off triple-double.

The Warriors, who welcomed back coach Steve Kerr after missing 11 games through back issues, have now won a record 14 straight play-off games.

The visitors trailed by just three points at half-time at Oracle Arena, before the Warriors outscored the Cavaliers 35-24 in a decisive third quarter.

Golden State beat Cleveland in the 2015 finals but were 2-0 and then 3-1 up last year, only to let their lead slip as the Cavaliers won their first NBA title.
