There was no shortage of fireworks early in Game 2 of a star-studded NBA Finals.
Golden State Warriors center JaVale McGee and Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James, specifically, had plays in the first quarter that deserve a closer look.
McGee received a beautiful alley-oop pass from teammate Kevin Durant and slammed it down hard over Cavaliers forward Kevin Love.
Love appeared to be in total disbelief at McGee’s impressive finish at the rim.
Later in the opening quarter, “King James” went out of his way to make a statement with a steal off of a failed behind-the-back pass, finishing it himself with an absolute monster of a dunk.
While it’s a toss-up as to who had the better dunk, there’s no denying who was the better team Sunday night. The Warriors handily took down the Cavs 132-113 to take a 2-0 series lead.
