The Golden State Warriors pummeled the Cleveland Cavaliers 132-113 on Sunday to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the NBA Finals.

While last year’s Warriors team was an incredible one that set the NBA record for regular-season wins with 73, they of course came up short in the NBA Finals to the Cavs. And we’re quickly seeing the difference that offseason acquisition Kevin Durant makes vs LeBron James and the Cavs this time around.

Durant was spectacular once again, with 33 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, five blocks, and three steals.

Durant’s two-way game was especially on full display during this ridiculous sequence in the fourth quarter:

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr (more on him later) said after the game that Durant’s defense was “unreal” and “probably the key to the whole game.”

LeBron added after the game that the Warriors “are a different team” with Durant:

But the Warriors are much more than just Durant, of course. Like, there’s a guy named Steph Curry! And all he did was have a triple-double:

This game was also Steve Kerr’s first game coaching the Warriors since Game 3 of the first round, as he’s been dealing with an ailing back. Kerr got a massive ovation from the fans at Oracle Arena:

Game 3 is set for Wednesday night in Cleveland, and needless to say it’s a must-win game for the Cavs.
