Green hands Warriors 2-0 lead

Draymond Green stole the spotlight as the Golden State Warriors crushed the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-77 in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday.

Green scored 28 points on 11 of 20 shooting, while also grabbing seven rebounds and dishing out five assists.

Green’s resurgence in form will give the Warriors a huge boost as the 26-year-old struggled to have an impact during his side’s Eastern Conference Finals clash with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

In fact, the power forward was fined $25,000 after he clocked Thunder center Steven Adams twice in the groin. It was this incident that seemed to affect Green’s performance during the series.

With Green looking more like himself, the Warriors now find themselves just two games away from retaining their NBA title.

Green was well supported by point guard Stephen Curry, who dropped 18 points on seven of 11 shooting and pulled down nine rebounds.

LeBron James was once again the Cavaliers’ best player as he finished with 19 points, eight rebounds and nine assists.
