KLAY Thompson overcame a sore ankle to start and spark the Golden State Warriors to a 122-103 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game Two of the NBA Finals on Sunday in Oakland (Monday, Manila time).
Listed as questionable for the game after hurting his left ankle in the series opener, Thompson played 34 minutes, helping the Warriors get off to a strong start and hold on for a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven battle.
Thompson scored 20 as the Warriors Big Three combined for 79.
Steph Curry delivered 33 points on 11 of 26 shooting, including 9 of 17 from beyond the arc, while Kevin Durant added 26 points, making 10 of 14 field goal attempts.
The series shifts to Cleveland for Games Two and Three.
LeBron James had 29 points and 13 assists, falling just a rebound short of a triple-double.
Kevin Love scored 13 of his 22 points in the third, when the Cavaliers got to within 10 points.
They could not get things going early in the fourth, however, allowing the Warriors to cruise to victory.
