Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors 2017

08 Juin, 2017, 18:38 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Sports is riddled with superstitions so you can't blame the Golden State Warriors if they are trying something a little bit different as the clock counts down to Wednesday's tip-off of Game 3 of the NBA Finals. "But you know it's definitely possible".

In real time, Cleveland's two losses in Oakland looked lopsided, but Irving said the tape revealed some positives.

LeBron James, however, insists that Cleveland would resist changing their style of play on offence because they "don't play slowdown basketball".

We're not seeing the same Durant with this energetic Golden State team. Maybe he gets some in Game 3. "So we just got to stay locked in like we have been", USA Today quoted Green as saying.

Now that Durant is just two games away from securing his first National Basketball Association championship, with two consecutive blowouts of the Cleveland Cavs, the chorus of boos against the lanky superstar has grown deafening around the country. Meanwhile, Curry put up 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists on his way to a triple-double. And, the first quarter in which the Warriors outscored the Cavs 40-34 and the teams combined for 130 possessions, was the fastest James' career - regular or postseason - spanning 5,100 quarters. "So I think that's a luxury that we have with KD here, and when I went out with foul trouble, obviously, to say he has to pick up the slack is kind of a ridiculous term, because he's a great player, an MVP, one of the best players in the world". I don't remember what the final score was, but it wasn't close.

One nice thing about proposition bets is that they allow you to bet on specific players and performances depending on how you think the game will play out.

Lebron James and company are back in the same boat they were in a year ago.

Lue used Iman Shumpert extensively in Game 2 and might have to again, just for his defensive intensity. Golden State has won 29 of its last 30, including the ongoing record-setting, flawless run through the playoffs. Eleven Cavaliers are shooting 35 percent or better from 3-point range in the playoffs, but James, Love and Kyrie Irving are the only Cavs who've made more than one open or wide-open 3 in the Finals.

But other officials in his administration sought to downplay that message and emphasize the need for regional cooperation. Gause notes that compared to its neighbors, Qatar "is less stringent about regulating the movement of private monies".

"I have the same confidence level I've had since I started playing this game", Smith said. "Nah, I feel great".

"We know the crowd's going to be into it and you know, there's going to be a big ovation for us taking the floor and we're going to use that to our advantage", Kevin Love said. "She told me every time I touch it, shoot it".

Durant's scoring has taken pressure off Stephen Curry and allowed the Warriors to withstand Cleveland runs so well that they haven't trailed after the first quarter in either game.

The Cavaliers will play for their post-season hopes on Saturday (AEST), when they face the Warriors in game four of the finals.

"Yeah, it's something I am accustomed to", James said. They just need make them.

The Warriors, who won 113-91 and 132-113 at home over the Cavaliers, swept Portland, Utah and San Antonio to reach the finals. They split the two games at home before reeling off three straight wins to become the fourth team to win the title after losing the first two games. And I'm confident that we can play that way, and we did it a year ago.

That's what we want.
