Game 2 of the NBA Finals has come to an end with a score of 87-87, meaning that the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors will go into overtime. The Warriors took the lead in the game after league MVP Stephen Curry lead the team with 26 points, only before the Cavs, mainly LeBron James, brought back the points. The Cavaliers were holding strong up until the fourth quarter when the Warriors started gaining on them. It did not take long for the Warriors to catch up and end the game in a tie, just as they did in Game 1.
Game 1 of the NBA Finals ended just the same way with a tie of 100-100. The Warriors were able to bring it back, without taking up very much time. Coming in for the win in Game 1, the Warrriors pulled out eight extra points, leaving the game at a final score of 108 Warriors to 100 Cavaliers. Many are now asking the question: Will history repeat itself?
It seems as though the second game of the NBA Finals is going just like the first one did. The difference, however, is that the Cavaliers do not have Kyrie Irving in this game. Irving left after an injury to his knee-cap, which he is supposedly currently having surgery on. The Cavaliers worked extra hard to win Game 2 with Irving, and still without Kevin Love. As the Cavaliers are down from injuries to their players, it seemed as though they did not stand a chance. Now they must work even harder if they want to bring a win out of Game 2. As the Cavs and Warriors are going into overtime, it is just a matter of moments until the world knows if the Cavs can bring it back from a loss in Game 1, or end Game 2 in just the same way.
Update: Cavaliers win in overtime with a final score of 92-91.
