Following their Game 2 win, the Warriors have a 59% chance of winning the series, according to ESPN's Basketball Power Index. They'll have a chance to take their first lead in the series on Wednesday in Oakland (9 p.m. ET on ABC/WatchESPN). Until then, relive all the best moments from Game 2.
Game over? Not exactly ...
The Raptors took a five-point halftime lead and entered Sunday's game 56-5 after leading at the half this season, including the playoffs. That was the best such record and the most such wins in the NBA in 2018-19.
However, prior to Sunday, the Warriors had won three previous games this postseason after trailing at the half. During the regular season, Golden State was 11-19 after being down at halftime.
Golden State erased any doubt about whether it could come back by opening the second half with an 18-0 run before the Raptors finally got on the board nearly six minutes into the third quarter.
Including the last bucket of the first half, the Warriors scored 20 consecutive points, the longest run by any team in the NBA Finals since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976-77, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Klay Thompson leaves early
Klay Thompson is hurt. He is limping to the bench in a lot of pain.— Nick Friedell (@NickFriedell) June 3, 2019

Klay Thompson has left hamstring tightness and will not return tonight— Ramona Shelburne (@ramonashelburne) June 3, 2019
Steve Kerr on Klay Thompson: "Klay said he'd be fine, but he could be half-dead and he'd say he's fine. He pulled his hamstring and he thinks it's minor - we'll see."— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) June 3, 2019
KD and Klay were hyped waiting to celebrate with their guys in the tunnel 🙌 pic.twitter.com/xtpCvVEHvj— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) June 3, 2019
Iguodala leaves too ... but comes back
Iguodala was down on the floor and appeared to be holding his head for a few moments. He slowly made his way back to the bench and is being checked out by the Warriors training staff.— Nick Friedell (@NickFriedell) June 3, 2019
Iguodala returned to start the second half and made a 3-pointer with 5.9 seconds left to ice the game for the Warriors. Prior to that make, Andre Iguodala was shooting 34% on uncontested 3-pointers this postseason.
Iguodala's shot had a 24% chance of going in, according to ESPN Analytics' Make Probability.
Stephen Curry's slow start
Stephen Curry went to the locker room after the first quarter of Game 2. The two-time MVP returned to action but missed his first six shots before making his last four to finish the first half. Curry and Klay Thompson combined to shoot 11-for-20 from the field in the first half. The rest of the Warriors were just 5-for-20, and they trailed by five heading into the break.

Klay comes to play early
Klay Thompson scored the first nine points of the game for the Warriors and 12 of their first 13 -- three more points than he scored in the first half of Game 1. Thompson picked up two quick fouls before taking a seat late in the first quarter.
I wouldn't recommend spending much time worrying about foul trouble for Klay Thompson, who averaged 2.1 fouls per 36 minutes this season.— Kevin Pelton (@kpelton) June 3, 2019
Klay has already scored as many pts in the 1st quarter tonight as he did in the 1st half of Game 1.— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) June 3, 2019
He has all 9 of the Warriors' points 🔥 pic.twitter.com/0DBKKrbJou
Warriors ready to Boogie
The Warriors made the first tactical adjustment in the series, putting DeMarcus Cousins back in the starting lineup. Cousins was Golden State's starter to begin the postseason before he injured his quad in Game 2 of the first round against the LA Clippers. The Warriors had been outscored by 20 points in 33 minutes with Cousins on the court this postseason, but Cousins was plus-12 in 28 minutes in Game 3.
A free agent audition in front of millions. To say this performance is critical for what happens this summer, would be an understatement. https://t.co/EPHYviC8ei— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) June 2, 2019
