Warriors have 40 points in the paints and 30 points off three pointers. Basically the most efficient scoring you can get, as this photo from Nate Duncan's computer screen shows :)

The Cavs have ruled out Kevin Love for the rest of tonight's game due to lower back SORENESS ...

Chris Haynes ESPN Staff Writer 

Cleveland Cavaliers watched Golden State Warriors score 41 points in that second quarter. They're 8-0 this when scoring 40 or more in a quarter.

Chris Haynes ESPN Staff Writer 

Things have gotten out of control real quick. At the break, Golden State Warriors lead Cleveland Cavaliers 78-49.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas has now scored at least 20 points in 25 straight games, the longest streak in the NBA this season. It's the longest streak since Kevin McHale had a 30-gamer spanning the 1985-86 and 1986-87 seasons. (Via Elias Sports Bureau).

The Warriors lead the Cavaliers, 78-49. The Warriors bench is 11-of-13 from the field. The Cavaliers starters are 12-of-33.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Cavaliers trail by 29. This is tied for the largest halftime deficit of LeBron James' career. He also faced one against the Trail Blazers in 2015.

The Warriors just scored 78 points in the first half. That is a lot.

Steph Curry hits deep buzzer beater 3, dances on the ground. Warriors lead Cavs 78-49 at the half

Ramona Shelburne ESPN Senior Writer 

Interesting to see how the Warriors are defending LeBron tonight. It's been a mix of Klay, KD and Draymond. Cavs keep trying to get Zaza to switch onto him, but with those 3 on the court at the same time, it's hard.

Ramona Shelburne ESPN Senior Writer 

Warriors are killing the Cavs out on the fast break. That last steal & assist was already Steph's 9th assist and the Dubs 26th fast break point.

2 Warriors stops lead to buckets on the other end. Steph Curry rips LeBron James, followed by Klay Thompson blocking Kyrie Irving. Warriors beating the Cavs 65-46

Ramona Shelburne ESPN Senior Writer 

The Warriors crowd is booing every time LeBron touches the ball after the last incident with DG. But honestly, he's doing the smart thing by extending this tiff with Draymond.

Ramona Shelburne ESPN Senior Writer 

Draymond gets the Flagrant 1, and a seat on the bench. From my view, it should have been a loose ball foul and nothing more, but reputation and history matter here.

And Draymond Green gets a Flagrant 1 for his collision with LeBron James
