The Golden State Warriors earned another blowout win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, setting records in the process.

As the team announced Sunday night, the Warriors set an NBA Finals record with 18 made three-pointers in the 132-113 win. The squad finished 18-of-43 beyond the arc, good for 41.9 percent for the game.

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant each made four three-pointers in the win, contributing to their dominant overall performances. However, the seven combined threes from Klay Thompson and Draymond Green might be just as important going forward.

Green is a streaky shooter from the perimeter and was just 5-of-17 in his last five games but an efficient 3-of-6 in Game 2.

Meanwhile, Thompson had been relatively quiet offensively in the past few weeks, but his 4-of-7 showing matched his most made threes this postseason.

"I'm still learning how to be more efficient with only 13 looks a game, which is cool cause I've got two MVPs on my team," the guard said after the game, per NBA on TNT.

The Warriors are always a dangerous team from the outside, ranking third in the regular season with a 38.3 shooting percentage. However, this group can be almost unstoppable with Thompson and Green knocking down shots at this rate.
