Cavs wallop Warriors to reduce deficit

The Cleveland Cavaliers put the brakes on Golden State’s march to another NBA title Wednesday as they crushed the Warriors 120-90 to make it 2-1 in the best of seven series.

The Cavaliers had been dominated in the first two games at the Oracle Arena, but upon stepping foot on home soil, they turned the tables on the reigning NBA champions.

LeBron James starred for the Cavaliers as he scored 32 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and fell four assists short of registering a triple-double.

James was well supported by Kyrie Irving as the point guard dropped 30 points on 12 of 25 shooting to go with eight assists.

Warriors superstar Stephen Curry got off to a slow start and was unable to find his range early on, but recovered to finish the game with 19 points. Despite his efforts, his side were blown out of the water by a Cavaliers side with new-found confidence.
