LeBron James compares Warriors to Patriots after Game 3 of NBA Finals

LeBron James compares Warriors to Patriots after Game 3 of NBA Finals

Curry had appeared to be vying with LeBron James, who earned a triple-double in Game 3 to follow up a staggering 51-point game in the previous match-up, to be crowned MVP but Durant has now moved ahead of both of the pair believes former Boston Celtics ace Pierce.

Durant, however, had 24 points in the opening two quarters, including a deep 3 on Golden State's final possession of the half, and the Cavaliers took a 58-52 lead into the intermission.

The Cavs led 14-4 with 7:57 left in the first quarter, a complete flip from Game 2 when the Warriors jumped to a 15-6 lead with 8:12 left in the first quarter.

And for good measure, we asked him about the Golden State Warriors, too.

Ariya edges Kim in play-off to win US Women’s Open
Jutanugarn had gone into her final round at 12-under 204 with her South Korean rival sitting in third place, six shots adrift. Kim was on the green in two, while Jutanugarn pulled her second shot into a bunker, and both walked away with a par.

Calling Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals important for the Cleveland Cavaliers would be an understatement. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world but him could have made those shots".

"That was awesome what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

Golden State guarded James better in Game 2-though he still scored 29 points on 50 percent shooting and had 13 assists-and they could be even better equipped to slow down James in Game 3.

"The one he made tonight was 4 or 5 feet behind the one he made a year ago", Cavaliers forward LeBron James said.

"The margin of error is very low", James said following Cleveland's 110-102 loss. "Bitch ass." Perkins, who was teammates with Durant during their days with the OKC Thunder, has not suited up at all during the NBA Finals.

The Caps avoided any hotheaded retaliation and concentrated on a gritty effort that was enough to even the series. Shea Theodore replied but the Caps held on for a first Stanley Cup game win before hosting games three and four.

The four-time NBA Most Valuable Player pump faked Golden State forward JaVale McGee and tossed the ball off the backboard from the free throw line.

He was amused earlier in this series by a question that suggested the defining moment of his career was the 3-pointer in Game 3 last season.

Durant stood motionless after dropping his 33-footer, which gave the Warriors a 106-100 lead and effectively ended the fourth straight finals matchup between the rivals. The Warriors have a 123.6 offensive rating in two Finals games, shooting 38.9 percent from three-point range. "Every opportunity we get to play more minutes together, we start to figure out a better chemistry". 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 me, tonight will be tough", James said. So I just get back to work tomorrow and figure out a better game plan.

"We have a lot of talent as well".
