Kevin Durant blocks LeBron James up front

Curry shot just 3 for 16 but he made a layup with the Warriors down one and followed with his only 3-pointer of the game for a four-point lead with a little more than 2 ½ minutes remaining. For James, this is not uncharted territory being the underdog.

In his playoff career spanning the last six postseasons, Curry has shot a strong 41.0 percent from downtown. There's no, like, OK, you're down 2-0 and you feel better than when you're down 2-0 before.

LeBron James is on.

"I had to watch as a receptionist did the "Steph-shimmy" while walking past my office after Game 1", said the Cavs flag bearer, who could offer no comeback.

"We all know what he's capable of and how he helps this team", Warriors forward Draymond Green said.

James is averaging 40.0 points, 10.5 assists and 8.5 rebounds per game in the Finals. Now James is a pretty forgiving person and maybe he will allow JR to stick around and give him another chance, but if LeBron wants to stay in Cleveland and really give the team a shot, he may have to part with some friends and move to players that really help the cause.

Durant's performance summed up why he's made the Warriors so dominant. Hill was unable to get a shot off in time and the game went to overtime. The NBPA announced their fourth annual Players' Voice Awards at 10:46 p.m. ET, during the third quarter of Game 3 of The Finals ... a fantastic game, by the way.


All five Warriors starters scored in double digits, but aside from Durant, none surpassed 11 points. So that's the luxury of having guys like that that you can always - any given moment, they can kind of go off for a game.

The shot was reminiscent of the one he sank in Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals, although this time he drilled it from farther, 33 feet to be exact. Cleveland rallied from deficits of 2-0 and 3-1 in 2016 to claim the first title for a major professional sports franchise in Cleveland since the 1964 Browns.

Golden State had no intentions of messing around in game two. Iguodala makes an impact at both ends, but where he is most effective is at slowing down LeBron James. There have been games where K.D. has had to take over.

"They hit big shots", Cleveland coach Ty Lue said of the Warriors as he sat in a press conference after the game. Kerr played with Jordan on three National Basketball Association championship teams.

And when James did get his first bucket. 15 years from now people are going to look back on this debate and realize that they were not appreciating the greatness that they are witnessing from Lebron James because they were to anxious about debating if he was the GOAT or not. Winning this championship specifically would put James over the top in this debate by being able to take down a super team.
