The NBA Finals Game 2 was in no way short of brilliant moves and spectacular shots as the Golden State Warriors took a 2-0 lead against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Leading up to the Sunday night tip-off, talks of how the Cavaliers would adjust in order to take home a win on the road were abuzz. Many believed that LeBron James and his crew would have to play more physical in order to come close to winning the game. And while it seemed like the Eastern Conference Champions did so much better last night, Kevin Durant and Steph Curry remained unstoppable.

J.R. Smith almost injured Durant

Leading up to last night's 132-113 win, Cavaliers guard J.R.

Smith told reporters that while his team has to work on being physical, dirty play isn't their game. The former Sixth Man of the Year even alluded to Warriors' Draymond Green and his knack for seemingly kicking his opponents in the groin. Answering a question about reverting to the last two finals' strategy of playing physical, he clarified that "dirtying up" will not be part of this game.

"Dirtying up the game? I don't know about that. They got one guy who keeps kicking people in the nuts," J.R. Smith told the media. "We don't dirty up the game. We just play physical."

However, during the game 2 face-off, many pointed to Smith's dangerous closeout on Kevin Durant.

Fans were quick to call him out for the cheap trick that could have ended the Finals run for the Warriors All-Star.

During the third quarter, Durant took a three-point shot which Smith contested. J.R., however, slid his foot under KD on the closeout which, luckily, the Warriors forward did not fall on.

The cheap play was similar to that of Zaza Pachulia's defensive stop against Kawhi Leonard which ended the post-season for the former NBA Finals MVP and let to the Spurs losing in dramatic fashion to GSW.

The dangerous closeout backfired, however, as Durant sank the deep three and Smith was slapped with a foul for a successful four-point play.
