Stephen Curry scored a game-high 36 points in 30 minutes as the Golden State Warriors claimed a 129-98 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in San Francisco.
The two sides contested the NBA Finals four years in a row from 2015-18, with Curry helping Golden State become champions three times, but the Warriors gradually pulled away from the road-weary Cavs, who slipped to 10-19 after playing the second night of a back-to-back.
