Cavaliers let chances slip away _ again _ in NBA Finals

Love helped the Cavaliers push the lead to 13 points with four minutes remaining in the first half, but Durant once again willed his team back.

Trailing 3-0 to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals for the second straight year, LeBron James said Golden State's team construction makes it possible for two-time MVP Stephen Curry to have a bad shooting night like he did Wednesday and still come away with a result like their 110-102 Game 3 win.

According to Nielsen, last night's Game 3 peaked with a 15.4 rating right near the end in the 11:15-11:30 PM ET slot.

Game 4 is set for Friday at Quicken Loans Arena. "The room for error, you just can't have it". With Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green leading the Warriors, LeBron and his cast of average teammates are overmatched in almost every category. In that Game 3 win at The Q, the Warriors withstood poor shooting games by their All-Star backcourt - leaning on Kevin Durant, who poured in 43 points to push the Wine & Gold to the edge.

James essentially said you have to play the ideal game to beat the Warriors because they don't beat themselves.

"Andre helps us in every regard, " Golden State coach Steve Kerr said before the game. "There's not really much pressure on them".

Yes, they should have won Game 1. "Someone else will score". This would be their sixth title, tying them for third all time, and would of course be their third championship in four years, all against the Cavs. But what happens if the league's most dominant player walks away?

It's a notion that later made Durant laugh.

The Cavaliers had been 8-1 at home in the playoffs with eight wins in a row since losing their first-round opener to Indiana. "Just to put a dagger in them like that, it was a huge shot".

Inevitable, Golden State will win this series, but Cleveland will at least command some respect if they can win Game 4. James was a facilitator early on, chipping in six points, five assists and two rebounds in the first frame. Salary-cap relief could finally come in 2020, but that would essentially be the start of the rebuild - the point at which the Cavs can rid themselves of some of those deals, and build around players they've drafted while making free-agent signings.

The debate over whether a fourth installment of Golden State vs Cleveland would be a positive for the National Basketball Association began before the Finals even started and has now prompted people to ask whether the Warriors' stranglehold over the league could be doing more harm than good. "It was attractive", said Warriors forward JaVale McGee. In his breakout performance, he also added eight assists and grabbed seven of Golden State's 41 rebounds.

In Game 2, Curry was involved in a season-high 40 ball screens and everything good the Warriors did went through him, especially torching Kevin Love.

As he always does regardless of whether they're going in, Curry has kept firing 3-pointers.

With a 12.7 in metered market results, last night's exhilarating Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals dipped just 5% to be pretty steady from the comparable match-up of past year.

"That's what they do".
