ORACLE ARENA, OAKLAND, CA — This is a continuation of the halftime recap of the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Golden State Warriors.

Kevin Love did not return, hampered with back soreness.

…then after a bad pass by Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant found Stephen Curry on the right wing for a splash, prompting Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue to call timeout as Golden State took an 84-49 lead with 10:48 remaining:

…but the Warriors couldn’t capitalize as Curry missed a jumper, then Iman Shumpert hit a triple.

A few possessions after that, Klay hit a trey from the right wing on a catch-and-pivot, but Kyle Korver answered with three of his own and Draymond Green picked up his fourth personal foul.

Later, James got a bucket, Irving spun and faded on Curry for two more, and after Durant missed a high-degree-of-difficulty pull-up over LeBron late in the shotclock, Irving made a “hesi” move on Steph, drove down the right side, and got the layup plus an and-one.

After Ian Clark came in a stripped the ball for a steal, he found Curry on the left wing but Steph changed his pivot feet while trying to drive on James for yet another turnover.

Kyrie drilled a three, and the Cavs made things a little more respectable, trailing 94-71.

Closing out the quarter, Green drew a foul on a drive with 49.7 seconds to play, Curry missed a drive, but the Cavs lost the ball on the break, and Steph missed from the deep left wing at the buzzer, Golden State taking a 96-71 lead into the final frame.
