Cavaliers let chances slip away _ again _ in NBA Finals

LeBron James

EPAJames scored a record 51 points in Game 1 of the NBA Finals

Golden State, trying to win the Larry O'Brien Trophy for the third time in four years, leads the best-of-seven series, 3-0. We're all grown men. He is shooting 44.9 percent from the field and an impressive 50.0 percent from the three-point line. In his first appearance, he lost to the Spurs in the middle of their dynasty with Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili in their primes. They play free, without much angst when things don't go well, adding to what James called "the level of stress" for opponents.

"Andre helps us in every regard", Kerr said after the Warriors' shootaround practice Wednesday.

"Some Warriors believe it was a unsafe play by Perkins.the fear was Curry could have sprained an ankle or suffered a knee injury", Haynes writes.

"In the Finals, this is the only building I know what that experience is like", Curry said.

She said it would be some time before precise losses were confirmed. "I wish I could just find out if I have a house". Some chose to stay in the area, which now has no power, cell reception, landlines or county water, officials said.

While the Warriors heated up, Curry stayed frigid.

CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Cavaliers were already in trouble after dropping the first two games of the NBA Finals in Oakland. For nights like Wednesday night, allowing them to overcome disgusting shooting nights from their other All-Stars and increase their margin for error. Steph was 3-for-16, 1-for-10, but as usual he hit a big one.

"Two seasons together, I think we've figured out a good balance", Durant said Tuesday, June 5. "Yeah, it's pretty nice, a pretty nice luxury as a coach, that's for sure". But they certainly have missed him. But he's not going anywhere, even mentally, until this series is over.

And Durant worked them with cruel efficiency.

We will be stronger together and we want to achieve something special. "We enjoy training together". You have got to have belief in the group all the time and believe you can reach the heights.

And if Stephen Curry makes one 3-pointer in Game 3, he will become the first player in National Basketball Association history with a 3-pointer in 43 consecutive playoff road games. "So we try to find areas where we can attack and take advantage of matchups and give ourselves the best chance to score". "It's best when we're communicating with each other about what we see on the floor consistently". Furthermore, his nine 3-pointers set a Finals records for most triples in a game, surpassing the previous record of eight set in 2010 by Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics.

" I just felt like especially the way he was missing shots tonight, he was struggling to shoot the ball, and the confidence that he had to pull that one up, and just the momentum of the game just kind of turned in our favor at that point... We both can be aggressive no matter if I'm getting the shot or he's getting the shot or anybody else on the team is getting the shot".

I do love the premise, by the way.

That's when Durant rose up once more. After what the Cavaliers have experienced this season, a 2-0 deficit in the Finals against a star-studded Warriors squad on the cusp of being stamped as a modern-day dynasty seems manageable. He hasn't played since Game 3 of the Western Conference finals.
