Game two of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers took place in Oakland on Sunday night as the Dubs put on a dominant display to take a 2-0 series lead. 

The Finals are always a huge event that attracts the biggest names from all walks of life. The United States presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders was in attendance during game one, as was ten-time Grammy Award-winning artist John Legend. 

The second installment of the series attracted a superstar name for the world of football as Brazilian player Neymar came to watch the Warriors - and two of his fellow countrymen - run out winners by an incredible 33 points.

With the Copa America taking place in the United States of America, the Barcelona forward took time out from his schedule to watch a shooting masterclass from the Bay Area franchise. 

Brazil played out a 0-0 draw with Ecuador in their opening game at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and will travel to Orlando for their second fixture, a matchup with minnows Haiti. 

The 24-year-old becomes the latest footballer to be in attendance at a basketball game and his presence was loved by the fans inside the Oracle Arena. 

He and his entourage were taken to the dressing rooms where they met fellow Brazilians Anderson Varejao and Leandro Barbosa, before talking to Stephen Curry, exchanging shirts with the point guard before posing for some photos. 

He also handed out Barcelona jerseys to every member of the Warriors' roster, including Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. Other celebrities in attendance included Mila Kunis and her husband Ashton Kutcher. 


The Warriors certainly put on a show for the crowd. The Splash Brothers were relatively quiet once again as they combined for just 35 points, however, they did not waste an opening as they shot 13-24 from the field. 

It was Green that proved to be the game-winner, coming up big with 28 points, five rebounds, and seven assists to leave the Cleveland Cavaliers deflated heading back to Ohio. 

The Eastern Conference champions are staring down the barrel after two games that emphasised the challenge ahead if they want to end their wait for a ring. 

Only a win will do in game three. In front of their home fans, you'd expect Cleveland to raise their game but anything less will see them facing the real possibility of a Finals sweep. 

The book is far from closed on these NBA Finals, but the Cavs' confidence from an easy ride in the Eastern Conference has been sucked away by two games in the Bay. 

They went 7-0 at the Q Arena on their way to the big dance. It is time for the crowd to play their part once again.
