Cavaliers let chances slip away again in NBA Finals

Cavaliers let chances slip away again in NBA Finals

Every time LeBron James loses an NBA Finals game, there is something that someone could have done better to push the team over the edge.

Golden State held a 3-1 lead in the 2016 Finals before the Cavs rallied to win three straight and dethrone the Dubs.

Only 20 teams have ever recovered from an 0-2 deficit in the playoffs, but James was responsible for three of those comebacks.

Kevin Durant with the cold-blooded step into it 3-pointer in the final seconds of the second quarter kept the Warriors within striking distance, 58-52, heading into the locker room.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant scored 43 points on 15-of-23 shooting.

The Warriors defeated the Cavaliers, 110-102 tonight in Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals to take a 3-0 series lead. J.R. Smith and Kevin Love were big contributors to the early lead with 7 points each. Stephen Curry, after a record-setting 3-point performance in Game 2, was completely out of rhythm, unable to shake free.

Nadal continues French Open march
The 36-year-old Williams set up that showdown by making only three unforced errors in the opening set against Goerges, 12 in all. Sloane Stephens advanced too, but the 10th-seeded American had a much more hard time beating Italy's Camila Giorgi 4-6 6-1 8-6.

Nadal loses first French Open set for three years
Nadal , who turns 32 on Sunday, continued his bid for an 11th French Open title and 17th major by brushing aside Gasquet. In the other men's quarter-final, Juan Martin del Potro and Marin Cilic were locked at 5-5 in a first-set tiebreaker.

And despite facing all the challenging elements of a hostile road environment, the Warriors won 110-102 in game three of the National Basketball Association finals to move within one victory of their second straight championship. He's such a high-IQ type of guy that he'll most likely find himself in the right place at the right time and help our rotation get back to what we're consistently used to.

For the third time in the past four Finals, James and his teammates enter Game 3 against the Warriors in a win-or-make-summer-vacation-plans situation.

"Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world but him can hit them", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant. "Nonetheless, we know that he was struggling from the field, however we're not going away from him, we're going to continue to give him the ball and he's going to shoot however many shots he wants".

Brown, along with San Francisco 49ers defensive end Arik Armstead actually took in Game 2 of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena, and while the result of the game wasn't the one No. 81 was looking for, he was impressed by the energy of the stadium. The Warriors inserted McGee into the starting lineup and reaped the rewards before Curry put on the finishing touches with a flurry in the fourth quarter. An awkward layup followed by his first and only 3 of the game to shift the momentum to the Warriors side - and one they rode to the finish line. "We watched tape. We watched film and see the things that we can get better at, very minor things". "I don't know how many minutes he'll be able to play, but he's been feeling pretty good the last two days".

That opened the door for Jordan Bell to play 12 minutes where he scored 10 points and pulled down six rebounds.

Curry and Thompson combined for just 21 points on 7-of-27 shooting from the field.
