Durant leads Warriors to 110-102 win vs Cavs

A Cavaliers fan flies his favorite team's colors proudly from his apartment balcony in San Francisco before Game 3 of the NBA Finals. For James, this is not uncharted territory being the underdog. He was 2-2 in four trips to the NBA Finals with Miami.

The Golden State Warriors expect Andre Iguodala to play in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night. James Harden is their MVP and LeBron is the "People's Champ". He is also averaging the second most minutes played during the postseason with 41.7 minutes per game.

And, as we know, no team is flawless - especially not these Cavs. More thinking we haven't played that great and we're up one.

Wednesday night's Game 3 of the NBA Finals will be the 100th playoff game of Green's tenure with Golden State. It was the same a year ago at this time and the Cavaliers were on the verge of winning another Game 3 but blew a six-point lead over the final 3:09 and lost, 118-113.

Cleveland Cavaliers players draped themselves all over Durant.

National Basketball Association officials made another interesting call well before the Cavaliers and Warriors hit the floor.

Though the Warriors enjoyed a third-quarter surge in which they reversed a six-point halftime deficit, the Cavaliers managed to withstand the run, as the teams alternated leads in the fourth quarter.

The Cavs won the rebounding battle by 10 once again.

Brown, along with San Francisco 49ers defensive end Arik Armstead actually took in Game 2 of the NBA Finals at Oracle Arena, and while the result of the game wasn't the one No. 81 was looking for, he was impressed by the energy of the stadium. Durant's first half was sick (24 points on 7-for-10 shooting, 3-for-4 from distance, eight rebounds and two assists).

James posted a triple-double with 33 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists while Kevin Love had a double-double with 20 points and 13 boards in the loss. Right now, that seems very improbable.

LeBron James may be at the door. However, a super team stands in his way from getting that elusive fourth championship.

"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. The over is 2-0 so far in this series. It shouldn't affect it at all.

For LeBron James, losing is no longer an option. His numbers do not lie either.

Leading in postseason threes is future Hall of Famer Ray Allen, who nailed 385 three-pointers throughout his playoff career. The Cavs, who climbed from a 2-0 hole to beat Boston in the conference finals, have major roster holes and unfixable flaws. "Two guys that I think are a head above everybody else that's ever played the game".

James simply can't do it all for this team.

While Kerr looked forward, James was forced to take another glance back at Game 1.
