    KLAY Thompson found his groove as the MVP duo of Steph Curry and Kevin Durant continued to dominate, powering the Golden State Warriors to a 132-113 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game Two of the NBA Finals on Sunday in Oakland (Monday, Manila time).

    The Cavaliers managed to keep the score close but the Warriors caught fire late in the third to take a 102-86 lead to move 2-0 in the best-of-seven series.

    The series shifts to Cleveland for Game Three on Wednesday.

    Thompson bounced back from a six-point performance in the series opener to score 22 on 8 of 12 shooting, including 4 for 7 from beyond the arc.

    Curry posted a huge triple-double of 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, while Durant went 13 for 22 and wound up with 33 points and 11 boards.

    The Warriors’ 14th straight win in the postseason matches Pittsburgh Penguins’ streaks during their 1992 and 1993 runs in the Stanley Cup playoffs, the longest run in US major sports.

    LeBron James also had a triple double with 29 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds.

    Kevin Love had 27 points and seven rebounds, while Kyrie Irving came up with 19 points and seven assists.
