Dynasty's doorstep: Durant, Warriors take 3-0 lead in Finals

07 June 2018

LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers drives against Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 3, 2018 in Oakland, California.

In fact, James is the first player in NBA Finals history to have notched at least 80 points and 20 assists through the first two contests.

Smith said he "might have" told LeBron James that he thought the Cavaliers were winning when he made the costly mistake.

Golden State has won on Cleveland's court, including Game 3 past year, or closing them out to win a title in 2015's Game 6.

The Cleveland Cavaliers host the Golden State Warriors in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday night.

Garcia confident she'll win a Grand Slam title
She will face either 2016 champion Garbine Muguruza or Lesia Tsurenko of Ukraine for a semi-final place. "I love playing Maria". Williams said she was gutted to miss out on facing her rival. "But as soon as I started playing, I thought "no, too soon".

The Warriors have yet to comment on the controversy or James' comments, but after skipping the ceremony last year it's assumed that James is right and they'd skip it again this year as well. The mystery is gone, and Golden State - which hasn't lost four consecutive games in the same season since 2013, back when Mark Jackson was coaching the Warriors instead of calling their games on ABC and ESPN - needs only to avoid an apocalyptic collapse to win their third title in four years. "But I think more importantly, as Americans, and especially people in Philadelphia, we shouldn't let that news take away from what that unbelievable team did to sacrifice throughout each and every Sunday". Through the first two games of the Finals, the Cavaliers have shot 19-of-64 from three (29.7 percent).

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said Golden State is guaranteed nothing if it doesn't continue to make shots and defend. "We get it at this point".

Last season's playoff results: Warriors defeated Cavaliers in five games to win the 2017 NBA Finals. The Cavs outscored the Warriors 21-10 in second-chance points in Game 1, then outscored the Warriors 19-9 in second-chance points in Game 2. "I'm not suprised. Typical of him".

"We all feel that we can still win this series, and that we can play a lot better", said Cavaliers guard George Hill. "Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up!" Curry, sitting in the corner on Smith, came over to "tag" Thompson - that is, brush up against him to slow his roll - and ended up jumping the passing lane, getting the steal. "We know that come Wednesday we're going to have to be better", Love said. They play best when they are doubted. James elaborated on the challenge the Warriors present since adding Durant.
