Livingston, McGee giving Warriors big lift in finals vs Cavs

Warriors guard Stephen Curry

What that edge means depends on one's perspective.

"We want to see each other succeed". He is questionable for Game 3 of the Finals.

Golden State was up three and Durant was being guarded by Rodney Hood 35 feet from the basket. "They've got a Finals MVP that comes off their bench", James said in reference to Iguodala. Otherwise take the Warriors to cover the spread.

We'll examine all of that below. James spoke at length about what makes Iguodala so good before the series began. Airbnb says Cleveland "is home to hundreds of seasoned Airbnb hosts", though it anticipates a number of first-time hosts will attempt to capitalize on Round 4 of Cavs-Warriors.

He can only hope the friendly confines of Quicken Loans Arena will be the safe haven it's been for the Cavs throughout this postseason. But I think having guys that get so excited about a good play, a good block or a good rotation or a good shot or dagger shot.

Love was terrific in the first half with 15 points and 10 rebounds, but Durant kept Golden State in it with 24 first-half points of his own as he drained a long three over Larry Nance to end the half, as the Cavs went into half time with a six-point lead.

Sure, it sounds like an athlete cliché - It was all about the team - but there was a lot of truth in what Durant said. "I think everybody gets excited for the small parts of the game, and Steph is one of those guys that just brings that joy".

There are other reasons to expect these complementary pieces to shoot better, too. He missed all four shots and is now 8 of 29 dating to Game 1 of last year's Finals.

The city and county also get a cut of the added revenues.

To win any NBA Finals game, on the road, when LeBron James has a triple-double, when they trailed most of the night, when the deficit was as many as 13 early, when Curry and Thompson shot a combined 7 for 27. only a Superteam can pull that off.

Of course, there's nothing childlike about the Warriors' production.

Stephen Curry is now the odds-on favorite to capture series MVP honors at minus-300, per OddsShark.

James is averaging an unbelievable 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.

Durant then buried a 3-pointer from 33 feet out with 49.8 seconds remaining to essentially ice the game.

Iguodala hasn't played since Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

And it was great because the victory put the Warriors up 3-0 and on the cusp of their second straight title. While Curry said immediately after the game the incident was "much ado about nothing", and teammate Klay Thompson said it was a "great movie", forward Draymond Green said it was more than that. Perkins last played April 11 against the New York Knicks - his only appearance in a game this season - and has zero minutes played in 20 playoff games against Indiana, Toronto, Boston and Golden State.

But James aside, the memes were pretty depressing if you're a Cavs fan. He did everything he can to steal one in Oakland, and chances are he'll get more help in Cleveland. "Winning two in four years is not a dynasty".

It took things like JaVale McGee going 6 for 6 and David West stepping up in a critical late-third-quarter moment to hit his first 3-pointer in seven months to help the Warriors keep the Cavs at bay Sunday, until Curry ran wild late on his way to a NBA Finals record nine 3s and turn the game into a rout.
