Warriors forward Iguodala has 'good chance' to play Finals game three

Warriors forward Iguodala has 'good chance' to play Finals game three

While Warriors power forward Draymond Green battled foul trouble (and his fifth technical of the postseason), the fiery leader made a dunk that gave the Warriors a 108-102 cushion with 25 seconds left.

Curry and his fellow Splash Bro, Klay Thompson, are now tied for the most three-pointers made in a single postseason at 98, a record that will likely stand for a very long time (unless one of the two breaks it themselves).

That's why he went to the Hamptons a few summers ago and why the Warriors sent their stars to recruit him. "They're going to make runs".

The Cleveland Cavaliers are hosting an NBA Finals game for the fourth straight year on Wednesday evening.

The sight of Kevin Durant dribbling up the left wing with under a minute to go would be enough to make any Cleveland fan have sweat-induced night terrors.

That's exactly what he did in Game 3. "I mean different feel", said Durant who shot 15-of-23 and scored 24 points before halftime to keep the Cavs within striking distance. Durant has played some inefficient basketball over the last two playoff series. All right. There it is.

"Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world but him can hit them", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant. "He's an assassin. That was one of those assassin plays right there". "So there it is".

Iguodala had averaged 11.4 points in his 18 previous Finals games - including a 20-point showing for Golden State in last year's title clincher against Cleveland. He added 10 rebounds and 11 assists for a triple-double, his fourth of the playoffs. "We were ultra-aggressive in that first half, myself included". Didn't matter. Rodney Hood answered Lue's challenge, showing a revived aggressiveness en route to a 15-point performance.

Thompson was't much better, posting 10 points, four rebounds and two assists. More of the same.

James is averaging an awesome 40.0 points, 10.5 assists, and 8.5 rebounds on 55.8 percent shooting from the field and 45.4 percent shooting from long range. From the sideline, announcer Mike Breen made the call: "Kevin Durant, waaay outside ..." The Cavs took a dozen more shots and had 12 more rebounds than the Warriors. In the postgame presser, Smith said it hurt more because the team lost at home.

"You encourage each other along the way, and we appreciate what we bring out of each other". He's a guy that scored 40 in a quarter before. "So when you're able to either force a miscue on them, you have to be able to capitalize and you have to be so in tuned and razor sharp and focused every single possession".

"Even though we held Steph to one three tonight, the one he made was huge, huge". They were 9 for 36.

You knew this wouldn't end well for Cleveland, and it didn't, Durant making sure of it. Since joining the Warriors, he had connected on only two 3s from 30-plus feet and had never done it a couple of times in game throughout his career. If Curry and Thompson both have off nights, they still have the second-best player in the game. No team has ever come back from down 3-0 in the NBA Finals. If they couldn't win on this night, it's hard to find any hope.

If the Cavaliers can't beat the Warriors on a night their shooters are this off... it's a bad sign.
