It may not have lived up to the hype of the Christmas Day match between the two teams, but Golden State Warriors blowout win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

In the season's second rematch of last year's NBA Finals, the Warriors had 35-points to spare over their opponents in a 126-91 win. It moved the Warriors' record for the season to 35-6, while the Cavaliers dropped to 29-11.

The Warriors never trailed in the match, quickly moving into a 7-0 lead, and never looked back as the Cavaliers struggled to match the intensity of the 2015 NBA Champions.

Golden State's holy trinity of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant combined for more than half of the Warriors' points, with the team leading by 39-points late in the match. 

Draymond Green also performed excellently, recording his third triple-double of the season, scoring 11-points in the win.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving combined for 37-points for the Cavaliers in a night where the NBA champions were second-best around the court.

If the two teams are to meet again this season, it will be in the NBA Finals. The two matches this season saw the sides win one each. Basketball fans will hope the two sides book a date with each other later this summer.
