Golden State sharpshooter Stephen Curry delivered a performance for the ages Sunday with an NBA Finals record nine 3-pointers powering the defending champion Warriors over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

And it was Curry who shot them to move closer to another title, as the Splash Brother drilled nine three-pointers - an NBA Finals record - on his way to a game-high 33 points.

The Cleveland Cavaliers return home to Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday (9 p.m. ET) for Game 3 of the NBA Finals in a proverbial must-win situation against the Golden State Warriors.

Golden State won Game 1 in overtime, 124-114, and leads the best-of-seven series 2-0.

Cavaliers' forward Kevin Love provided a spark with 22 points but it was not enough to pressure the Warriors, who shot 57 per cent from the field and 41 per cent from behind the arc. The Warriors are 4.5-point sportsbook favorites in the latest odds for Game 3, with the over-under for total points scored set at 216.5. "So, pretty special night, and hopefully some more special things happen and we get two more wins".

Personally, I would like him to stay. " We didn't do enough to ask them real questions", Villa manager Steve Bruce said. He added: "After we missed out on promotion last season, a lot of people wrote us off".

"He was tremendous", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

James became irate at the officials for a no-call on Curry, who ran beneath the Cavs star and didn't let him land with 3:54 remaining in the quarter as James caught Love's long pass and went out of bounds. "JaVale hasn't played much the whole playoff run and coach starts him tonight, he plays fantastic". Whether it was Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, or even JaVale McGee, Golden State was feeling it Sunday night and there wasn't much the Cavs could do. "So I have to figure it out as it goes". James is truly the greatest, no matter how good or bad his supporting cast may be. But through three quarters, the Warriors made 20 of 24 shots from the lane. As James came down with the ball, the two Warriors players seemed to stumble over one another, with Curry falling to the ground and undercutting James in the process. After a slow third quarter in which he missed all five shots, Curry saved the best part of his 3-point show for the fourth quarter, scoring 16 points after making all five of his 3-pointers.

"So at some point, when this is all said and done, I hope to kind of just sit back and really truly appreciate, from start to finish, all that went into it. We're in the NBA Finals competing for a championship". What we are witnessing is that even the best of the best need help.

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.
