Warriors’ NBA Finals Winning Streak Continues, Ratings Still Steady With 2017

Cavaliers' superstar Lebron James continued his brilliant playoff run with a 33-point triple double, but the Cavs were still unable to defend their home court.

"That was wonderful what he did out there tonight", Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters.

Think about this: The 2016-17 Cavs had one of the most prolific attacks in league history - a club that made 13 3-pointers per game, shot 38.4% from deep and had two of the league's most devastating one-on-one players. Teams that have fallen behind 3-0 in the playoffs are 0-131.

The Cavs had a near-perfect start and built a 16-4 lead during a wild stretch that saw James whip the home crowd into a frenzy when he threw an alley-opp pass to himself off the backboard.

Iguodala's return figures to be another big boost for the Warriors, who lead the Cavaliers 2-0 in this series and now get the 2015 NBA Finals MVP back into their rotation.

While it was a quiet night from Curry and Klay Thompson, who finished with 10 points, the Cavaliers simply had no answer to Durant. The Warriors don't appear to be headed for a similar fate, though, as they're just one victory away from winning their second straight National Basketball Association title and their third in four seasons - all against the Cavs.

After some contentious calls in the first two games, the official Twitter account of the National Basketball Association referees tweeted during game three to confirm James' pass to himself off the backboard was legal.

Hood shot 7-for-11 and scored 15 points off the bench in his 25 minutes, which included significant playing time in a one-possession game in the fourth quarter.

But it wasn't enough in a game where the Cavaliers just have to try to outscore the Warriors because they can't get stops.

Smith, the three-time National Basketball Association champ will meet with the Golden State Warriors this summer.

During Game Three Wednesday night they finally got one.

As for Iguodala's extended rest, he actually said he wasn't too upset that he had to miss the final four games of the Conference Finals and the first two games of The Finals. More importantly, Curry has helped Golden State take a 2-0 series lead, and its extremely unlikely voters would honor a losing player.

By the time the first half ended with Cleveland up by six, the Warriors had chipped away at big Cavaliers leads twice, thanks mostly to Durant, who had 24 points in the half.

"No, that wasn't the same shot", James said when asked to compare Durant's 3 to last year's.

It came on a night when no other Warriors player got it going offensively. And that allowed Kevin Durant to conserve some energy en route to a stunning game-high 43 points on 65.2 percent shooting.

LeBron James and the Cavaliers just happened to be on the wrong end of it.

As Curry and Thompson struggled with their three-point shooting early, Durant was unstoppable, using his long arms to shoot over the Cavs' defenders, nearly single-handedly keeping Golden State in the game at half-time when they trailed just 58-52.
