Stephen Curry made an NBA Finals-record nine 3-pointers and scored 33 points to lead Golden State to a 122-103 victory and a 2-0 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Curry hit five 3s in the fourth quarter as the Warriors turned it into a romp after the Cavaliers were within seven points early in the period. He added eight assists and seven rebounds.

Curry passed Ray Allen, who made eight 3s in a 2010 game, and also moved ahead of LeBron James into the career lead with 90 3-pointers in the NBA Finals.

James finished with 29 points, 13 assists and nine rebounds in a losing effort. Kevin Durant added 26 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Warriors, who never trailed in Sunday night's game.

Teams that win the first two games of an NBA Finals series have gone on to win the championship 88 percent of the time. Game 3 will take place in Cleveland on Wednesday beginning at 6 p.m. Arizona time on ABC15.
