Warriors take Game 3 as Durant flips script on LeBron

This is the four consecutive NBA Finals match-up between the Warriors and the Cavaliers, and Golden State is up 3-0 in the series, needing just more win to clinch their third title since 2015.

This was not exactly the same shot from Kevin Durant.

LeBron James scored 33 points and Kevin Love 20 for the Cavs, who have fallen into a hole in which no team has ever emerged.

Tonight begins a pivotal Game 3 in the 2018 NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers as the Cavs try to turn their fortunes around.

"That was unbelievable what he did out there", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

"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". In NBA playoff history, teams down 3-0 are 0-131.

James set an early tone barely two minutes into the contest with an wonderful dunk with an assist from the backboard. You make mistakes. They make you pay.

According to Nielsen, last night's Game 3 peaked with a 15.4 rating right near the end in the 11:15-11:30 PM ET slot.

He said Asia can only prosper under the rule of law, and stressed the importance of a rule-based worldwide order. The U.S., he said, remains committed to ensuring free and open transit in the region.

After some contentious calls in the first two games, the official Twitter account of the National Basketball Association referees tweeted during game three to confirm James' pass to himself off the backboard was legal.

Just 4 minutes and 16 seconds into the quarter, the Warriors had turned a six-point hole into a five-point lead thanks to a 17-6.

Cleveland did what it had been saying it would do for two days - come out better on home court - and the Cavs led for the entire first half, thanks in part to awful shooting from the Warriors.

James said the challenge for all executives and some "players" is to build a team with the talent and smarts to compete with the Warriors. That allowed the Cavaliers to have 12 more shots than the Warriors, including eight more makes. Agreeing to such terms allowed the team to retain forward Andre Iguodala and backup point guard Shaun Livingston. "He's one of the smartest players in the league".

From the moment Kevin Durant signed with Golden State two summers ago, the debate over who is the Warriors' alpha dog has raged: Stephen Curry or Durant?

"There's going to be nights like this for all of them".

For the Warriors, Curry and Thompson had only a combined 21 points on a combined 7-of-27 shooting and a 3-of-15 mark from three-point range. "The room for error is slim to none".

"And I thought Durant hurt us with his one-on-one, getting to the free-throw line a little bit".
