Dynasty's doorstep: Warriors take 3-0 lead in Finals

LeBron's former GM David Griffin thinks Sixers have 'a leg up'

Another chance was wasted, and the season is now just about over. He had just two points in the first half of Game 3 and was 0-for-5 on three-point attempts when the Warriors went to the locker room at half-time trailing 58-52.

The Golden State Warriors have sent the Cleveland Cavaliers to the brink of elimination in the NBA Finals as they took a 3-0 lead with a 110-102 win in Game 3. "We have an opportunity to come home and protect home, as Golden State has done. When you have great basketball players but also that can also think the game and be very cerebral about the game, that's what adds the level of stress, because you know that you can never, ever relax", James said.

James played every second on Sunday before Cavaliers Coach Tyronn Lue raised the white flag with 4:09 remaining, finishing with 29 points, nine rebounds and 13 assists while shooting 10-for-20 from the floor.

Curry had the shot of the night with 7m 54s to play, making an off-balance swish from several feet behind the three-point arc over Love as the shot clock wound down, then backpedalling in pure joy. Golden State's Kevin Durant said.

"Incredible, even by his standards", Love said.

The teams were locked in a tight battle for most of the second half and the outcome was up in the air until a Durant three-pointer from well beyond the arc put the Warriors ahead by six and all but sealed the game with 50 seconds to play. But third quarters have kind of been our Achilles heel all year.

Game 1 of this series will be remembered by how Cleveland let it get away; the botched rebound by Smith to be forever played as one of those quintessential wish-you-had-it-back moments.

It means they face a must-win game at home this evening in Game 3 and got off to a flying start in the first quarter.

They were asking for trouble. Coach Steve Kerr said the 34-year-old has improved. It's my job to make sure we're as focused, laser-focused as possible, do my job, and continue to instill confidence into my teammates until the last horn sounds. That's what this team does. This series is proving - just as their slugfests against the Indiana Pacers and Celtics in the Eastern Conference playoffs did - that the Cavaliers need more around him.

How do the Cavaliers reckon with the fact that they are down 3-0 against a team that can martial so many ways of beating you, a team that is clearly superior to theirs? Golden State signed Durant as a free agent in the summer of 2016 after their team that went a record 73-9 in the regular season lost to Cleveland in Game 7 of the Finals, becoming the first team in league history to blow a 3-1 Finals lead.

As his teammate Love put it: "That margin for error is so thin and so little against them that in some cases, you nearly have to be ideal".

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.
