OAKLAND, Calif. — The Cleveland Cavaliers flipped the script in the NBA Finals from an automatic championship coronation for the Golden State Warriors to a contentious brawl-like series that might to the distance.
In the process, the Cavs handcuffed recently crowned NBA MVP Steph Curry, particularly pesky defender Matthew Dellevadova, and harassed him into a historically poor shooting night during the Cavs’ 95-93 overtime thriller victory in Oracle Arena.
Curry missed 18 shots, going 5-23 for the night, and missed an NBA Finals record 13 three-point shots, going 2-15. And to punctuate his miserable outing, he fired up an airball with an opportunity to tie the game and send it into the second overtime.
Social media had a blast firing up Curry. And, unlike Curry, their shots hit their mark. Take a look at the funniest memes of Steph Curry’s horrific performance in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, which is now tied at 1-game apiece heading to Cleveland.
