Warriors beat Cavs to close in on second straight title

Will Stephen Curry Be Named NBA Finals MVP after Making History? Kevin Durant takes over NBA Finals as Warriors open commanding 3-0 series lead over Cavs

Another chance was wasted, and the season is now just about over.

Cleveland: Defending champion Golden State, powered by 43 points from Kevin Durant, moved to the brink of a third National Basketball Association title in four seasons Wednesday by defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-102.

"It's definitely a tough loss and we had our chances", James said.

"We have another opportunity on Friday to win on our home floor, to extend the series. That last play is over, it's behind us and now we've got to move on".

James has now registered at least 25 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists in each of his pst 10 Finals games.

Rodney Hood saw his first real minutes in the series and scored 15 of Cleveland's 23 bench points, going 7-for-11 from the field.

Needing to produce not just a great game, but an all-time great game, every single night is a standard not even James can fairly live up to.

James also passed Michael Jordan for the most 30-point games in playoff history with his 110th of his illustrious career.

"Maybe it's just a tradition that needs to stop if everybody is going to be disinvited", Green said. Kevin Love wreaked havoc in the first half, both rebounding and shooting the ball. But third quarters have kind of been our Achilles heel all year. "But I think I agree with LeBron". They might even win that one, as they did in Game 4 here previous year.

They were asking for trouble.

"We have a game on Sunday to make up for it and do the best we can to get back on the right track". "We just couldn't stop him". Because on this night, for the second time in his career, LeBron James couldn't have been better on May 31.

"That was wonderful what he did out there", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. At times they did make us pay. That's what this team does.

Curry squatted low to admire his shot as it went in at one point and galloped back in joy after he hit two deep threes late in the first half. Teams that have fallen behind 3-0 in the playoffs are 0-131.

"That margin for error is so little, so thin against them, I think in some cases you have to be flawless", Love said.

After winning the 2017 Championship, Warriors players indicated that they would not go to the White House, but before they would meet to formally decide, President Trump cancelled his invite.

Smith raised some eyebrows Wednesday when he mentioned the Boston Celtics as a possible suitor for LeBron James this summer.

Warriors forward Andre Iguodala, the 2015 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, returned to Golden State's lineup after being sidelined by a left leg bone bruise.

A bounce here, a couple stops there, the Cavs could be leading in these finals and the conversation would be different.

LeBron James had another fantastic game on Sunday with 29 pts, 9 rebs, and 13 assits.

When approached with this information, Curry told ESPN: "I'm not going to get into it. You know if you relax, they make you pay, and making you pay could cost you a game", James said.

"That's pretty much who I've been my whole life", said Smith, who bonded with a therapy dog earlier this season during a rough stretch.
