BOX SCORETORONTO -- The Warriors had never gone down two games to none in an NBA playoff series under coach Steve Kerr, and they again avoided that deficit Sunday night.The Warriors beat the Toronto Raptors 109-104 in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night at Scotiabank Arena, tying the best-of-seven series at one game apiece and taking back home-court advantage.After a poor performance in Thursday's Game 1, Klay Thompson played well Sunday before injuring his left hamstring. If Boogie builds on his Game 2 performance, the champs could be in good shape.No one likes a tattletale.The Oklahoma City Thunder saw their season come to an end in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, when they were vanquished in five games by the Portland Trail Blazers.Those Blazers went on to lose to the Warriors in the Western Conference finals, who evened up the NBA Finals at one game apiece with a victory in Game 2 on Sunday night.Towards the end of that critical victory, Stephen Curry got a little excited.Well, more like a lot excited.While Curry was on the bench during the opening minutes of the fourth quarter, fellow point guard Quinn Cook drained a much-needed 3-pointer from the right wing in front of the Raptors' bench area, and Curry rushed over to congratulate him.The only problem? You don't see that every day.Which brings us back to the tattletale, and the Thunder.Oklahoma City power forward Patrick Patterson witnessed the odd occurrence on the live broadcast, and immediately took to Twitter to try to out Curry for what he perceived to be an illegal action.So Curry just ran on the court to celebrate with Cook during live play.. @NBA @OfficialNBARefsThere is an NBA rule that stipulates players aren't allowed to leave the bench area during an altercation, but clearly, that doesn't apply here.The Warriors were also the focus of Patterson's most recent tweet prior to that one, so maybe -- just maybe -- this is a case of sour grapes from a player that would rather still be playing in the postseason than sitting at home watching it.TORONTO – Klay Thompson had broken through the haze of low-percentage shooting and was having his most impactful game in several weeks when he came up lame in the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night.It’s a rare sight and profoundly unsettling for the Warriors.But there was Thompson, hobbling into the locker room with 7:59 remaining Sunday night.
