Suspense in the NBA Finals increases after Game 2

Durant doesn’t play and Thompson is injured, but the Warriors still win

Despite the absence of Golden State Warrior Kevin Durant, out with a calf injury, and the loss of Klay Thompson with an injured left hamstring Sunday night, the Warriors won Game 2 109-104 against the Toronto Raptors. The series is now tied 1-1. The Undefeated’s senior NBA writer Marc J. Spears and senior writer Jerry Bembry invited Chris Herring of FiveThirtyEight to discuss why this is the most exciting NBA Finals in a while after only the first two games.
