Golden State Warriors: 3 keys for Game 3 vs. Cavaliers

Adjust Comment Print

The Warriors and Cavs will square off Wednesday in Game 3 of the NBA Finals at 9 p.m. ET, and if Games 1 and 2 tells us anything, there is nearly assuredly going to be more drama unfold in some form or fashion.

Curry, a 30-year-old guard, broke the old mark of eight 3-pointers in a finals game set by Ray Allen of Boston in 2010.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr says Iguodala will warm up with the intention of playing in Game 3. We're used to the dynamic of being ahead in the series and then have everything shift when you go on the road. "We have to be prepared for that".

5 - We see it now Cavaliers fans.

The Cavaliers opened their biggest lead of the series at 13 points and maintained a double-digit advantage through much of the first two quarters, built mostly through the shooting of James and Smith and the rebounding of Kevin Love, who has quietly had a tremendous series. He's scored a total of four points in this series for the Cavaliers.

But they still left the court with shaking heads, staring at a daunting 0-3 series deficit.

A report from ESPN's Chris Haynes states several Warriors were unhappy with Perkins after Game 2. James said he knows he tried to call timeout, but it all happened fast. "I don't like the way - the mood that I'm in right now, knowing whatever".

Serena Williams pulls out of French Open before Maria Sharapova match
Serena Williams has withdrawn from Roland Garros just moments before her fourth-round match against Maria Sharapova . Its extremely disappointing but I made a promise to myself that if I'm not at least 50 per cent, I shouldn't play.

Durant ripped away the Cavs' best shot to make this a competitive series Wednesday night. I've been fortunate enough to, you know, shoot at a high clip. "So I don't feel good about it".

"Just got to be better", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said tersely when asked about the defensive issues.

Hood is 25 and 6-foot-8 who can score off the dribble in catch-and-shoot situations and can switch on defence. He is also averaging the second most minutes played during the postseason with 41.7 minutes per game.

"It's definitely a tough loss and we had our chances", James said. Whenever the Warriors needed a bucket, it seemed they could get one at the rim (or just throw the ball to KD). "I think we have to be ready, all us other guys, to relieve some of that pressure".

The Cavaliers' Kevin Love practices Tuesday at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Curry looked frustrated as he tumbled to the floor and forward Green growled at officials as both he and Curry picked up three fouls in the first half - with Green adding a technical for an early scuffle with JR Smith. Additionally, Klay Thompson scored 20 points after being somewhat doubtful to play following the ankle injury he sustained in Game 1. He hasn't played since Game 3 of the Western Conference finals.

The Warriors, seeking their second consecutive championship and third in four seasons, will try to complete the sweep Friday at 6 p.m. And I wholeheartedly endorse P.J. Tucker as the Sneaker Champ Award (best shoe game). "So we know he's very capable of coming in and being productive".
