Warriors vs. Cavaliers, Game 3 on Wednesday night

Report Le Bron James to be cover athlete for NBA 2K19 20th Anniversary Edition

It may have felt a bit too close to call up until the final minutes, but, in the end, the Golden State Warriors continued with tradition last night and defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in OH to now lead the 2018 NBA Finals 3-0.

It might not have been a carbon copy of the 2017 shot, but it could have similar effects; Durant is now one win away from a second straight title and possibly his second straight Finals MVP.

CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Cavaliers were already in trouble after dropping the first two games of the NBA Finals in Oakland.

No team in National Basketball Association history has ever come back from 3-0 down in the playoffs and attention has already turned on James' free agency decision.

"You can't have mistakes, they're not going to beat themselves", he continued.

Late in the game, Durant called for the ball on numerous occasions, clearly looking to seal the win.

Irish boxing gym 'heartbroken' by fatal shooting
Sky Sports reported Tuesday morning that the attacker entered the gym, fired numerous shots and fled in a silver Volkswagen. Katie Taylor, 31, won gold at the 2012 Olympics before turning professional, having been trained by her father Pete.

"They have a number of guys that can bail their team out on any play, any game, any possession", Cleveland's Kevin Love said.

After the game - which the Warriors won 110-102 to take a 3-0 series lead - Durant was asked why and how he remained so calm and composed, especially while Curry and Draymond Green were going insane right next to him.

The Cavaliers took a gamble by playing Hood - who had barely played against Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals or in their first two Finals games - in place of the cold-shooting Jordan Clarkson, and Hood, for the most part, paid dividends.

Durant's night included a dramatic 32-foot pull-up 3 from the left wing with 49.8 seconds remaining that doubled the Warriors' lead from to six points and ostensibly sealed the victory.

"You definitely tip your hat", James said. "They rise to the occasion, and that's what Golden State has done the last four years". "Not many people say that about me", James told the reporter. Klay Thompson was coming off a Game 2 in which he scored 20 points. It was reminiscent of the outing last year that gave the Warriors a 118-113 win in Game 3 and sets Golden State up for a chance at a third championship in four years with Game 4 in Cleveland on Friday. After lighting up Cleveland in the first two games, Curry shot 3 for 16 from the floor, scoring only 11 points. "It's nearly like playing the Patriots". But at the same time I knew the game wasn't over. One of the items Hoffman asked Bryant was the team the future Hall of Famer thinks would best fit James in the future. Some of them are the first in their families to go to college.
