Warriors rally past Cavs, go up 3-0 in NBA Finals

08 Juin, 2017, 18:46 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Out of the four big stars in this series, Irving's absence is notable if for no other reason than his visibility throughout the playoffs.

Detractors will say of course Durant is having a great finals performance, he plays on a great team.

- One victory left for the Golden State Warriors to claim another title. "And we're not going to change just cause we're playing Golden State". Curry recorded his first career postseason triple-double with 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, while Durant contributed 33 points, 13 rebounds, six assists and five blocks and is suddenly on the cusp of his first ring.

A Kevin Love three in the third quarter gave the Cavs their first lead of the series beyond the first 12 minutes.

It took a few critical injuries, and National Basketball Association intervention (suspension of Draymond Green), for the Cavs to pull this out a year ago.

"We just need our supporting group to be themselves as much as possible", Irving said. "Kyrie knows what he's capable of in this building, in the league, at our building".

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) talks to Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr during the first half of Game 3 of basketball's NBA Finals in Cleveland, Wednesday, June 7, 2017.

Why won't Cleveland slow the game down? More disconcerting to the Cavs might be the fact that Durant and Curry - who is averaging 30 points per game in these Finals - seem to have found their groove. Was I underrating him. The game will come to you.

Kerr joked Sunday night that the Warriors have a foolproof defensive plan awaiting James in Cleveland. He wasn't going to lose that game and the look in his eyes as he put down the three showed the side of a man that's ready to win his first NBA Championship.

LeBron has admitted before to smoking weed in high school and his wife, Savannah Brinson, appeared to be smoking a joint during the World Series past year. They make their foes play small at a time when no one plays small as well as they do. Cleveland ranked just 16th in pace during the regular season, and were only as high as seventh during the playoffs.

That same player, however, has been nowhere to be found in the finals.

"[Thompson] scored the same amount of points as me and Shaq". Golden State has won 29 of its last 30, including the ongoing record-setting, ideal run through the playoffs.

After a huge shot cut the lead to two points, Durant then had his defining moment. It's reasonable to ask if the Cavs are asking too much of him. "Even when you're playing well, you got to play A plus plus to beat them". On the road, those numbers went down to 44.8 percent, 5.0 assists and 2.9 turnovers.

According to Nielsen ratings, through two games on ABC this is the most watched NBA Finals since 1998. Dwyane Wade put up just 15.2 points per game in that series, and it might've been the impetus for James signing with Cleveland that summer.

While best known for his sensational scoring and shot-making from every corner of the court, Durant has been tough on LeBron James so far in these NBA Finals by smothering the Cavs superstar. Kyle Korver is shooting less than 17% from deep, J.R. Smith is shooting about the same on total field-goal attempts, and Tristan Thompson has been out rebounded by Stephen Curry.

But if Irving doesn't play like a superstar, the Cavs have no chance.
