NBA Finals: Green's 28 points helps Warriors take 2-0 series edge

And before tip-off a nice moment, as they honored the late great Muhammad Ali, who passed away at the age of 74 on Friday.

LeBron James would have a hard time on this night - getting swatted by Andrew Bogut. LBJ would be held scoreless in the opening q. first time in his finals career that's happened.

despite that he would get involved in other ways -- as he finds Tristan Thompson for the alley-oop as the visitors lead by two after 12 minutes.

The King would get involved in the second, taking the pass from Mathew Dellavadova and going hard to the rack. He had 19, as his team is up 6.

But the Warriors would start to push the pace -- as Draymond Green is able to dial long-distance. He had a game-high at 28, as the hosts build a seven point lead.

The Cavs suffer a setback next time down the court. This three is off the mark by G-State, but Kevin Love goes down underneath his own hoop. He was inadvertantly elbowed in the head by Harrison Barnes. He would leave the game, and is placed under the NBA's concussion protocol.

Right before the half -- the champs are able to stretch the lead to double digits as Steph Curry hits from distance.

And then his running mate - Klay Thompson is able to score in transition - Dubs lead going into recess. Thompson finished with 18.

Second half and more hot shooting from the hosts - as the MVP comes off the screen for the triple.

Do-it-all Dray would then hit the jumper - as th the lead swells to 17.

And when Thompson gets the hoop and harm - it is over. 110-77 the final as Golden State take a 2- nothing lead in the series. Combined with their 104-89 romp in the opener, the Warriors produced the largest two-game combined victory margin to open an NBA Finals.
