Cavaliers lead Warriors by 3 in Game 3 of NBA Finals

As Curry and Thompson struggled with their three-point shooting early, Durant was unstoppable, using his long arms to shoot over the Cavs' defenders, nearly single-handedly keeping Golden State in the game at half-time when they trailed just 58-52. For James, this is not uncharted territory being the underdog. He is leading the postseason with 34.6 points per game, which is the second highest of his playoff career. He is also averaging the second most minutes played during the postseason with 41.7 minutes per game.

It feels as though this series is already over.

LeBron James is on.

James is averaging an wonderful 40.0 points, 10.5 assists, and 8.5 rebounds on 55.8 percent shooting from the field and 45.4 percent shooting from long range.

"Just for him, just as a person, to be healthy and be able to play in The Finals now that we're here, I think that would mean a lot to him and give us an emotional boost as well".

The Golden State Warriors are too much for him and for his Cavaliers.

Overall, a site which counts hashtags reported it was used more than 1,500 times by the time the game ended.

Curry's single 3-pointer in Game 3 made him the first player in National Basketball Association history with a 3-pointer in 43 consecutive playoff road games. The Cavs would probably want to move Tristan Thompson as well, but Powell would be best as an energy guy off the bench.

The Cavaliers and Warriors are meeting for the fourth consecutive NBA Finals, with Golden State having won titles in 2015 and 2017 while Cleveland captured the 2016 crown, rallying from a 3-1 deficit in the greatest comeback in finals history.

For the first time in the NBA Finals, the Warriors had their Hamptons Five (nee "death lineup") at their disposal, as Andre Iguodala returned to action for the first time since the Western Conference finals. An awkward layup followed by his first and only 3 of the game to shift the momentum to the Warriors side - and one they rode to the finish line. Durant is giving the Warriors 26 points and nine boards so far in the Finals. They lost the rebounding battle 47-37, but dished out 27 assists and just 10 turnovers compared to Cleveland's 20 assists and 13 turnovers. There have been games where K.D. has had to take over.

A bunch of other players ran over to get involved including LeBron James, but nothing serious really materialized beyond the standard jawing. He witnessed first hand the greatness of Jordan, but even he can't hold back from complimenting James and saying that he is playing like the greatest player to ever play.

When assessing what the league might look like next year, and what kind of competition there will be, LeBron James will always be the biggest question. James was shown asking Lue if the team had any timeouts and then reacting as if he had been punched in the stomach when he learned the Cavs could have stopped the clock.
