Kerr said the Warriors would not take their series advantage for granted, especially since they blew a 3-1 lead to the Cavaliers in the 2016 Finals.

Despite double-digit contributions from three other starters and reasonable shooting percentages throughout most of the game, the supporting cast for the Cavaliers could not measure up to the intensity brought by the reigning world champions. Ironically, it wasn't until the final quarter that Golden State pulled ahead, extending its lead as high as 23 to end any chances the Cavs had at a comeback. But it was Stephen Curry who stole the show with an NBA Finals record nine three-pointers made. "We'll just have to see".

Interrupting, Curry said: "You should have asked me".

If the quantity of Curry's three-pointers weakened Cleveland, the sheer quality of those shots broke the Cavs' resistance as the two-time National Basketball Association champion appeared to be scoring at will, no matter who Cleveland chose to pair him with.

Certain shots - particularly this almost 30-foot circus shot to beat the shot clock early in the fourth - will understandably garner the majority of the attention, as it provided Golden State enormous momentum as Cleveland was attempting to make one final push. That rang true again on Sunday when Green finished with six points, two rebounds, and one assists on 28.5 percent shooting. How about in the aftermath of his costly Game 1 blunder that won't be forgotten anytime soon?

Through two games of the 2018 Finals, Curry is making a pretty serious case that he should check off that box.

Last Friday, in the wake of his team's heartbreaking Game 1 loss, coach Tyronn Lue said that the Cavs "have the blueprint" to be successful in the series, a statement he continually made in the conference finals against the Boston Celtics, too.

Three years ago, the accolade went to Andre Igoudala for his defensive work against LeBron James, despite the fact the former did not feature in the Warriors' starting line-up until Game 4.

Curry's ability to shake free was far from the only thing that explained Golden State's victory. It's easy to forget just how good a prospect he was earlier in his career - he was the LA Clippers' point guard of the future before a horrific knee injury altered the trajectory of his career. "They know how hard it's going to be in Cleveland".

If you weren't watching, you missed one of the most infamous moments in NBA Finals history.
