NBA Finals Game 2: Warriors vs Cavaliers Player Ratings

#Kevin Durant Steph Curry

Steph Curry found his shooting touch in Game 2, lighting up the Cleveland Cavaliers for 33 points in the Warriors' 122-103 Game 2 win .

Curry poured in NINE three-pointers, breaking Ray Allen's record for the most threes made in an NBA Finals game.

LeBron James did his best for Cleveland with a near triple-double of 29 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds, but his team now stare down a 2-0 deficit as the series heads back to Cleveland for Game 3 Wednesday.

See all the Game 2 player ratings below.

10 - Steph Curry

Curry was fantastic in Game 2, shooting 11-for-23 from the field for his 33 points, adding seven rebounds and eight assists on the night.

There's not much you can do when Curry's hitting shots like this.

9 - LeBron James

Again, LeBron James empited the tank playing 43 minutes in Game 2. Nothing could match his effort from Game 1, but LeBron piled on a near triple-double of 23 points, 13 assists and 9 rebounds.

On the way, he added another accolade to his resume, passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the second all-time on the NBA Finals scoring list .

8 - Kevin Durant

Durant makes 26/9/7 look easy and didn't force anything on offence. His buckets came in the flow of the Warriors' offence and it showed as they racked up 28 assists on their 47 made field goals. His offence was great, but it was on the defensive end where he starred, chasing down LeBron at every chance and protecting the rim.

8 - Klay Thompson

Klay came into Game 2 struggling with an ankle injury, but you wouldn't have known it. Thompson quietly chipped in 20 points on the night, including some timely threes whenever the Cavaliers looked like they were making a run.

8 - Kevin Love

This is the type of production the Cavs need from Kevin love to compete with the Warriors. Love stretched the floor in Game 2, knocking down three triples and he made his presence felt in the paint, ripping down 10 rebounds, including four on the offensive end, to go with his 22 points.

He needs to continue to make the Warriors work in the post when he gets the ball there. Too many times he failed to use his physicality to draw contact.

8 - JaVale McGee

McGee was inserted into the starting lineup and caused havoc inside from the jump. He chipped in 12 points in 17 minutes on 6-of--6 shooting, with dunk after dunk.

7 - George Hill

Hill was aggressive in Game 2 and looked for his shot early and often. He needs to continue to look to score from the perimeter as the series goes on. He finished with 15 points and three triples.

7 - Draymond Green

With Curry, Durant and Thompson firing the offence, Draymond turned facilitator, dishing out seven assists. He set the tone early for the Warriors defence as they contested well in the paint, a much-improved effort from Game 1.

7 - Shaun Livingston

Livingston hasn't missed a shot in the Finals yet!

The Warriors reserve point guard is playing his role to perfection as the steadying hand off the bench. He finished with 10 points in his 15 minutes in Game 2.

6 - Tristan Thompson

Thompson did a good job running the floor and being active inside, but he needs to be more of a factor on the glass. He had just five rebounds in Game 2 and with McGee becoming a factor inside, TT must make his presence felt.

4 - J.R. Smith

Many were expecting a bounce back from J.R. but he was hesitant on offence and was largely a non-factor for the Cavs. He shot 2-of-9 for the Cavs for his five points.
