LeBron James
LeBron James and Steph Curry will again be the centre of attention when Golden State take on the Cavaliers in Game 2 of the 2016 NBA finalsGetty

Golden State Warriors drew first blood in the repeat of the 2015 NBA Finals and will return to the Oracle Arena for game two with a 1-0 lead. It was billed to be the battle between Steph Curry and LeBron James, but it was anything that. The former had a very quiet game with just 11 points, while the latter was more involved and was just one assist short of recording a triple double.

The Warriors were the dominant team throughout the game. Except for the third, the 2015 champions scored more points than the Cavs in all quarters. However, the story of the day was the Warriors bench, who outshone the first-team with Shaun Livingston, the star of the show. They obliterated the Cavs reserves and in the latter stages of the fourth quarter they were outscoring them 43-5.

LeBron James and co will have to step up their game when they return for the Game 2, as a 2-0 lead for the Warriors will be damaging for their confidence when they return to the Quicken Loans Arena for Games 3 & 4.

The 2016 NBA Finals is set to be broadcast all across the globe. IBTimes UK has compiled a list of TV and online platforms where you can catch the match live.
