LeBron alley-oops slam dunk off backboard in NBA Finals

Curry tries to score a layup in the first half as Kevin Love and Le Bron James look

Green is second with 387, while James is third at 381. The talk is usually about how bad the role players played and how James saved the day. No signs of stress anywhere.

Durant's last basket was eerily like a 3-pointer he made late in game three previous year against the Cavs that clinched a Golden State victory.

"I'm not surprised. It's typical of him", James, the Cleveland star, said Tuesday of Trump's decision to cancel. "I don't like the mood that I'm in right now". "When you're down like this, a deficit like this against a team like this, there's no good feeling".

The Cavaliers may be in a dark place.

With one more win, the Warriors can get the sweep, their second straight title and third championship in four years. But Golden State got 33 points and a Finals record nine 3-pointers from Stephen Curry, 26 points from Kevin Durant and 20 from Klay Thompson.

Rodney Hood saw his first real minutes in the series and scored 15 of Cleveland's 23 bench points, going 7-for-11 from the field. "We're going to keep fighting", Tristan Thompson said. "The guys are engaged and locked in". We know it's going to be loud.

It's easy to understand Lue's confidence.

The Cavs trailed 2-0 against the Warriors before going on to win the championship series in 2016, but James insists they need to stay on the edge.

James can shift the entire landscape of the league depending on where he goes. "We've got an opportunity to go home, and we've played some really good basketball on our home floor". It's a very tall task.

NCAA loses executive vice president Oliver Luck to Vince McMahon’s XFL
He said that the XFL will allow him to reimagine how football is played on the field and delivered to fans. The father of Colts quarterback Andrew Luck is no stranger to the sport or startup football leagues.


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. They've learned the hard way.

Durant scored 24 in the first half, when the Warriors attempted 13 free throws to zero for the Cavs, a disparity that induced further wrath on the officials from Cleveland fans still stinging from the now infamous reversed call in Game 1.

The four-time MVP pulled off the exact same dunk in last year's Finals against the Warriors.

Before the game, on NBA TV, Charles Barkley, whose prognostication skills aren't exactly razor sharp, predicted a big night for Cleveland.

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

Of course, only a handful of teams have a legitimate shot at landing the best player in the world. "It's a great position to be in". But I think he's getting closer, and I'm hopeful that he can play.

"It's an important conversation, but you can't control what other people try to do, or try to control the narrative or things like that", Curry said. Only Paul Pierce envisioned a Warriors' victory, saying that "Andre Iguodala will be the x-factor".

"It's definitely a tough loss and we had our chances", James said during the Game 3 postgame press conference. "If not tomorrow, then in Game 4".

From the outset of Game 3, these indeed looked like different Cavaliers.
