Cavaliers let chances slip away - again - in NBA Finals

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Golden State is guaranteed nothing if it doesn't continue to make shots and defend.

LeBron James may be at the door.

Iguodala's return figures to be another big boost for the Warriors, who lead the Cavaliers 2-0 in this series and now get the 2015 NBA Finals MVP back into their rotation.

It might be time to order some champagne from Napa Valley.

With the Cavs down 103-100, Durant stood defiantly and nearly motionless after dropping his 33-footer - just a few feet from where he made one in Game 3 previous year - and effectively ended the fourth straight finals matchup between two teams who have gotten to know each other well since 2015.

"I thought we played a good first half", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. "I don't think I'm the problem that they want, though, might want to pick another battle".

Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments past year and Trump's subsequent revoking of the Warriors' invitation.

Goodbye, Warriors-Cavs. It was quite a fight while it lasted. In Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night in Cleveland, Durant made his case - and it was a convincing one.

Despite his horror night, Curry shook off his shooting slump when the Warriors needed it, hitting a layup and a wide open three to turn a 97-96 deficit into a 101-97 lead with 2:38 remaining. After the Cavs beat the Celtics in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals SBNation wrote about how James felt towards his team.

Moments later, Durant delivered his dagger to silence Cleveland's crowd.

"We've just got to embrace whatever happens and look forward to a insane environment with a team that's desperate", Durant said. They shot just 9 for 27 from long range and are at 35 per cent for the series, a number that will need to improve if Cleveland wants to reverse the tide of the finals. "It started with the first game of the IN series".

And, just as it did in Game 3 a year ago, it moved Durant and the Warriors to the precipice of a championship. Furthermore, the four made shots from 30 feet out by Durant were more than any team has made in a playoff game in the past 20 postseasons.

On the day when the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be there to commemorate winning the Super Bowl - a visit that was canceled by President Donald Trump and had the White House accusing players who weren't planning on attending of abandoning their fans - Curry and James were among those speaking out at the NBA Finals in support of the Eagles.

Warriors star Kevin Durant is ready for craziness.

James arrived at 6 p.m. dressed more casually - camouflage trousers, purple hoodie, "Billionaire Boys Club" baseball cap - than on the road where he and the Cavs have been wearing suits during the post-season.

James also supported NFL players who choose to kneel during the pre-game playing of the USA national anthem, an issue Trump has stirred for nine months.

The Warriors had other plans.

James had just forged a a 33-point, 11-assist, 10-rebound triple-double, his fourth this postseason and the 23rd of his playoff career. Thompson played in his NBA-high 390th game over the last four seasons. Thompson's last attempt from James came in the third quarter.

He showed signs in the first quarter of being able to come back to the party but it still doesn't look like he's recovered from his Game 1 mistake.
