Warriors expect Andre Iguodala to play in Game 3 of finals

08 June 2018

Curry remembers "a lot of yelling, unnecessarily".

"Don't get me wrong, every time I make a shot in the National Basketball Association, I get excited", he said. "I just know it's going to happen".

There really shouldn't be any argument as to who is the best player for Golden State. The Warriors could be champions again as early as Friday night, and this crown - after experiencing plenty of turbulence this season - would most definitely be one to savor.

"That was incredible what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant. "It seemed like every time we needed a bucket he got it for us".

The embattled Cavs crumbled in Game 3, letting Durant drop 43 points, 13 rebounds and 7 assists on their home floor, including a long dagger triple from the same spot that also buried them a year ago. That continued in the second quarter.

Iguodala is averaging 7.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in this postseason. That came when his teammates were an uncharacteristic 1-of-11 from beyond the arc. Curry set a new Finals standard with nine 3-pointers on his way to 33 points. The Warriors trailed 58-52 at halftime, but without Durant putting on an offensive clinic, the Cavs certainly would have been up by double-digits. "But our guys sense the finish line, and they turned it on right from the beginning of the playoffs defensively". "Not about tomorrow. I feel great about our opportunity".

In addition, at over four weeks , this eruption has lasted longer than the 1955 and 1924 eruptions, the USGS said . Police on Monday said a man sped through a checkpoint near an intersection where lava was approaching.

Led by Durant, the Warriors did what they do in the third quarter, outscoring the Cavs 31-23 to take an 83-81 lead heading into the fourth.

The Warriors became the first team in history to take a 3-0 lead in back-to-back Finals.

Nothing's going in Cleveland's way, so far, in the 2018 NBA Finals. He called for a screen from Andre Iguodala to get JR Smith to switch on him, but as soon as Iguodala came with the pick, Durant raised up with four seconds on the shot clock and drilled a deep 33-foot dagger 3-pointer over the outstretched hands of Smith. The last sweep in the Finals was San Antonio over Cleveland in 2007 in James' debut trip to the championship round.

"Steph is struggling, Klay is struggling, if you've got to have a "Mr October" then he's "Mr June" now because this guy has been the best player in June the last two years".

Durant also hit a go-ahead three-pointer in the finals previous year against Cleveland with 45 seconds remaining.

Kevin Durant, who top scored with 43 points, sealed the win with a three-pointer with 49.8 seconds remaining.
