Game 2 of the 2019 NBA Finals on Sunday was a lot like the first match-up between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors, at least when it comes to the ratings. To paraphrase Martha Stewart, that’s not a good thing in what is shaping up to be the lowest-rated series in a decade.
On the court, however, things were on fire — especially for the Warriors in the second half. Although the current champions again played without the injured Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson had to exit the court due to a very painful landing, the Warriors rallied from their Game 1 defeat last week. With their defense now solid against the Canadian team and a third-quarter push that included an 18-0 run, the two-time defending champion Bay Area crew showed everyone exactly why they have all that hardware at home with a 109-104 victory in Toronto.
