Stephen Curry Open thread: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA finals

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 wonderful what he did out there tonight", said Warriors coach Steve Kerr of Durant. Smith? He had three points in the second half. "This has been our game plan the whole series, and we failed to do that in the fourth quarter".

The 2017 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player nailed a 3-pointer with 45.3 seconds remaining in last year's Game 3 to give the Warriors the lead at 114-113. "Kevin Durant was my answer", James said.

It's the closest thing to optimism Cleveland fans will find heading into what feels like a must-win Game 3 for James and the Cavaliers.

"I don't understand how, in order to talk about how great LeBron is we need to s-- on everybody else", Bryant said.

Turning Point - There were eight ties and 11 lead-changes in the second half of Game 3, but the contest might actually have been decided before the Red Panda Acrobat ever rolled her unicycle out for halftime.

"Tomorrow we'll come in and watch film, so it will replay in my mind throughout the day".

They built a lead as big as 13. If the Warriors sweep the Cavs, it will be the first time an National Basketball Association team has gone winless in the Finals since a young James and the Cavaliers fell to the 2007 National Basketball Association champion San Antonio Spurs. "We were ultra-aggressive in that first half, myself included". Kevin Love, J.R. Smith and George Hill-Cleveland's No.2 through No.4 scorers-are all averaging a combined 40.0 points, 17.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. The Warriors guard felt Perkins, who did not move from his seat, should have made an attempt to get out of the way following Curry's wild 3-point attempt prior to the buzzer.

"That's not setting a good precedent for me if I'm like, 'Man, I'm taking 10, '" NBC Sports reports him saying. Hood, meanwhile, made the most of his release from the bench, scoring 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the field to go with six rebounds in 26 minutes. But the Warriors allowed the Cavs to play within that margin of error for Games 1 and 3, and Cleveland could not exploit it. "I don't want to downplay anything, but I don't want to act like this is the end of the road". Game 4 is Friday night. While the Cavaliers are now a long shot to win the Finals, expect James and company to show pride and fight for respect on Friday night.
