Dynasty's doorstep: Warriors take 3-0 lead in Finals
07 June, 2018, 11:48 | Author: Hannah Francis
The Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James attempts to resurrect his team from 0-2 down in game three of the National Basketball Association finals. Yes, his Finals record would look ugly at 3-6 but if you dig deep into that you see that most of the time his team was the underdog so the odds were stacked against him.
The Warriors won despite a 3-of-16 shooting performance from Stephen Curry. Did the Dubs simply do what they were supposed to while holding serve, or did they survive the Cavs' most powerful punch and erase all hope of this becoming a competitive series? "Two guys that I think are a head above everybody else that's ever played the game. I mean different feel", said Durant who shot 15-of-23 and scored 24 points before halftime to keep the Cavs within striking distance. He said Tuesday that he doesn't know if he'll stay there for Game 3 in Cleveland tonight.
Kevin Durant powered his way to 43 points for Golden State.
Besides Iguodala himself, no one is looking forward to his return more than Kerr, who has frequently voiced his admiration for the 2015 finals MVP. Klay Thompson played in his NBA-high 390th game over the last four seasons.
It is unclear whether Iguodala can join Golden State's active roster in time for Game 3 at Cleveland on Wednesday.
For the third straight time in that unprecedented run of championship showdowns, the Warriors prevailed in Games 1 and 2 on their home floor, Oracle Arena. James has 59 career playoff games where he has scored 25 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, and dished 5 assists.
So, pray tell, how exactly do the Cavaliers try to limit a team that has one of the most-potent offenses in recent league history?
Cavaliers superstar LeBron James netted 29 points with 13 assists and nine rebounds while Kevin Love added 22 points and 10 rebounds, but Cleveland came no closer than five points in the second half.
He suffered a bone bruise in game three of the Western Conference finals when he collided with the Houston Rockets' James Harden on a drive midway through the fourth quarter.
The Cavaliers opened their biggest lead of the series at 13 points and maintained a double-digit advantage through much of the first two quarters, built mostly through the shooting of James and Smith and the rebounding of Kevin Love, who has quietly had a tremendous series.
If the Cavs get even one win, James' numbers will give voters something to think about. But it first happened a few years ago when he ripped away the Cavs' chances at multiple titles during the LeBron 2.0 era. Then we forced two other juggernauts in Klay and Steph into some very tough shots, and both guys didn't have the greatest games.
"Every opportunity we get to play more minutes together, we start to figure out a better chemistry", Curry said.
He finished with 15 points on 7-for-11 shooting in 26 minutes.
Some chose to stay in the area, which now has no power, cell reception, landlines or county water, officials said. County Managing Director Wil Okabe says his vacation home in Kapoho Beach Lots is also threatened.

Villa looked set to turn the screw when Odoi was given a second yellow after a rash challenge on Grealish during a feisty period. But he added: "We must adapt ourselves". "If we bottled it and tried to play a different way we would have lost the game".
