Golden State bench outscoring its Cleveland equivalent by 10 points. Which just happens to be the difference between the two teams at the moment. That lead extended by a Klay Thompson bucket and he is fouled in the process, but he misses from the line and can't make it a 3 point play.

2 straight defensive blocks by Iguodala and Golden State have leaped into a 14 point lead. However Klay Thompson is in a spot of foul trouble for the Warriors as he commits another on Irving, who can only hit one of the free throws.

Iguodala has the crowd on their feet again with a two handed slam to show he isn't just a beast at the defensive end of the court. Curry misses a wide open three point shot and Irving shows him how its done by knocking one down for the Cavs.

Cavs have a bit of a run going. Lovely play by Irving to keep the ball alive and he flicks the ball inside to Kevin Love who drops in a three pointer. Steve Kerr calls a time out as Cleveland trim the Warriors lead

GOLDEN STATE 49 CLEVELAND 41 with 1:46 to go in Q2

Draymond Green hits the three point shot for Golden State to halt the Cavaliers momentum. Curry runs the clock down but misses a three point attempt as time runs out. Cleveland have the chance to go up the other end but they can't get anything and we have reached half-time.

HALF TIME GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS 52 CLEVELAND CAVALIERS 43

Time for the regulation half time caffeine injection. Back for the second half soon.

Just 10 points from Thompson and Curry in the 1st half and the Warriors still lead. Cleveland should be worried that those two are going to get going in the 2nd half.

Here we go then with the 3rd Quarter and Cleveland have the ball and they turn it over. A scrappy start as neither side can get their groove on. Curry makes a nice move to set up an easy lay up, which he misses!!
