Warriors top Cavaliers to move one win from perfection

Warriors top Cavaliers to move one win from perfection

However, what has to change is production from Cleveland's role players.

"We got an unselfish team who just wants to win", Thompson said. What did you think they were going to do, go away? No. "I just tried to stay disciplined in my shot, hold my follow through, and it went in". However, Golden State would take a 39-32 lead into the second quarter on the road.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were so much better than in the previous two games.

Johnson, who recently spoke with CNBC as the NBA Finals between the Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors takes place, says that James has a quality that transcends other basketball stars out there: He's a true team player.

"He's a reason why we're able to be who we are", Warriors teammate Shaun Livingston said. "I gave everything that I had, so at times throughout the game I was exhausted, but that's just because I was just playing as hard as I could".

You can hardly second guess him given the effort he got from his team.

"I don't attribute us losing this game because we got exhausted". The 2013 Heat can play the small ball effectively and they have a sure shot of beating the 2017 Warriors.

That's true, but look at the box score and how the minutes were distributed. Did he realize that he shouldn't give the Warriors any more ammo than they already have? The problem with that, however, is that the rest of their team.well, let's just say 36 points is less than Cleveland put up in the first quarter alone.




The cold facts don't capture the way Durant silenced a sellout crowd that was tantalized by the possibility of the Cavaliers pulling to within a game of tying the series.

Cavaliers: James (1,175) passed Sam Jones (1,143), Bill Russell (1,151) and Elgin Baylor (1,161) to move into fourth place on the Finals scoring list. Then he scored 30 points as Cleveland won big at home in Game Three.

Yet it's hard to argue with how Cleveland managed the game. And, the first quarter in which the Warriors outscored the Cavs 40-34 and the teams combined for 130 possessions, was the fastest James' career - regular or postseason - spanning 5,100 quarters.

It pretty much ended Cleveland's hopes of winning back-to-back titles.

In the seven years since a Joe Lacob-led group purchased Golden State for a then-league-record $450 million, its valuation has steadily climbed.

It was the pivotal moment in the Warriors' 118-113 victory that gave them a 3-0 lead in the series. Not this time. Irving erupted for 16 points in the period and the Cavs forged a 94-89 lead by period's end. Down the stretch, he made plays for us. They went scoreless for almost three-and-a-half minutes, and they won that game anyway. Not to mention, last year's victory was such an emotional win for the city of Cleveland, as well as LeBron, that if the Cavs were successful this year again that it would have been the unexpected rather than the required.

The 7-footer finished 10 of 18 from the field with eight rebounds and four assists. I've been out of that department, I told you guys, for a long time now.

Later in the first half, Reid was back with yet another astute tweet as James' supporting cast continued to appear M.I.A. "Definitely not allowing me to play in some comfortable positions that I'm used to".
