Can Cleveland recover from 0-3 hole?

Orleans Pelicans at Golden State Warriors Andre Iguodala expected to play Game 3 of NBA finals

The Warriors beat the Cavs 110-102 to take a 3-0 series lead. But one of the misses was on goal.

Curry, who broke the NBA Finals record for most three-pointers in a single game in Game 2, went 0 for his first nine three point attempts.

James finished with 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, but he seemed exhausted by the end of the game, had little second half help and the Cavs became the first team in NBA history to go down 3-0 in back-to-back NBA Finals.

After the Warriors closed the first term to keep the Cavs' lead to just 1, Cleveland again came out positively in the second quarter, going up by as much as 14 on the back of a pair of Kevin Love triples.

With the Cavs down 103-100, Durant stood defiantly and nearly motionless after dropping his 33-footer - nearly from the same spot from where he hit one in Game 3 past year - and effectively ended the fourth straight finals matchup between two teams who have gotten to know each other well since 2015. They got a little of both.

Durant was asked if he felt slighted by not being mentioned among the Finals MVP candidates in the first two games.

"When you're down like this in a deficit like this, versus a team like this, there is no good feeling".

"He hit that dagger three a year ago, except maybe five feet closer".

The Raptors' oh-fer here doesn't even quite explain the level of dominance. The Warriors and Cavaliers are an even for 4-4 in the eight games they played in the National Basketball Association finals in The Land since 2015. That luck showed up in Game 3 in the person of Rodney Hood, the guard acquired by the Cavaliers in February, but who quickly tumbled out of the playing rotation as his shooting got increasingly erratic. ABC and other popular local and cable channels are included in the Hulu Live TV package, so you'll be able to quickly join in time to watch the Warriors Rockets Game 3 online. Kevin Love drilled a tone-setting three-point on the first possession, sending the crowd into fits, and J.R. Smith, who most definitely did not enjoy his trip to Oakland, hit one soon thereafter. The rims are supposed to be the same, but the results are quite different. "Top two best players in our league", said Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue. I mean, that's what he does.

"If you have a lot of athletic players in the 6-foot-7 range with long arms and lively legs, switching on every pick-and-roll works well", added Pluto. The Cavaliers opted to trap Curry from the opening tip, and the Warriors countered by working the ball into Durant at the midpost and letting him go to work one-on-one.

"That's the challenge right there", he said softly about the Warriors and their four stars: Durant, Curry, Thompson and Draymond Green. He thought Curry's lone 3-pointer in 10 tries - one that put the Warriors up by four with 2:38 remaining - carried more weight, and he might have been right.

LeBron James said after the game the reason that he wanted to come to Philadelphia was to play with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

As they've done throughout the playoffs, the Warriors surged in the third quarter, outscoring the Cavaliers 31-23 to take an 83-81 lead into the fourth quarter.
