Another game of the 2015 NBA Finals, another bunch of gut-busting and side-splitting memes for the taking!

After Friday's 108-100 overtime loss, the Cleveland Cavaliers bounced back and prevented another endgame collapse to snatch Game 2 away from the Golden State Warriors, 95-93, in overtime.

While it was another day in the office for LeBron James—another ridiculous stat-line of 39 points 16 rebounds, and 11 dimes for the King's fifth NBA Finals triple-double—the running theme of the game was how unheralded Cavalier Matthew Dellavedova turned out to be Steph Curry's kryptonite.


But before we forget, the Cavs, which already has Anderson Varejao (torn Achilles) and Kevin Love (dislocated shoulder) on the shelf, lost another key man before Game 2 in Kyrie Irving, who will be out for the rest of the series due to a fractured kneecap.

Irving's injury paved the way for Delly's insertion into the starting lineup, which meant a matchup with the Warriors' main man, Chef Curry, who dropped a cool 26 points and eight dimes in Game 1.

The 24-year-old Aussie is known for his defensive tenacity—sometimes a bit too tenacious for his own good—but he was about to face the league's "most unguardable player."

Mismatch? The outcome was probably not what you expected:

Delly didn't only stop the shakin'-and-bakin' MVP, but also made key plays down the stretch. He secured an important offensive rebound and converted two important freebies in the extra period.


It wasn't all Delly however as the usually sweet-shooting Curry just couldn't buy a bucket throughout the game, finishing 5-for-23 from the floor and setting a bummer of a record for most threes missed in an NBA Finals game with 13 (2-15 overall).

Even his daughter Riley, whose off-court charisma serves as his dad's lucky charm, "ribbed" him about his shooting:

As expected, the LeBron-Curry comparisons had a place in the Web feed.

However, the highlight of the day was this Shaqtin'-A-Fool-worthy play from Marreese Speights which basically describes how Game 2 went for the Warriors:

The Warriors may have once again kept it close until the final moments but in the end there was just too much of this beast, who fittingly let out this emotional roar at the end of the game:
