LeBron James praises Kevin Durant while throwing shade at the Trail Blazers

Open thread: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA finals

Well, while LeBron James and his hometown team are now down 2-0 to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, Brown believes there's still hope for the Cavs. In addition to James' typical dominance as both scorer and facilitator, Kevin Love turned in one of his finest Finals efforts during the Cavs' four-year run, pacing Cleveland before halftime. Thanks to a couple late-game mental lapses, the Warriors narrowly escaped with a 124-114 overtime win.

Defending champion Golden State, powered by 43 points from Kevin Durant, moved to the brink of a third National Basketball Association title in four seasons on Wednesday by defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-102.

From the outset of Game 3, these indeed looked like different Cavaliers. The Cavaliers are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Friday games, 4-2 ATS in their last 6 vs. "It was more than just what he did for the team".

Iguodala took home the award in the Warriors' 2015 triumph, while Durant took home the honours last season for his spectacular series.

"I told him it reminded me a little bit of Tim Duncan and his time with the Spurs", Warriors coach Steve Kerr told Bay Area News Group.

What to most appears hostile, to them was apparently cordial behavior.

Yes, they should have won Game 1. "Someone else will score". They play free, without much angst when things don't go well, adding to what James called "the level of stress" for opponents. That's rare in the National Basketball Association because we're all professionals.

On Wednesday, that joy was tested. Game 3 is Wednesday in Cleveland (9 p.m. ET, ABC). Huge flames shot from the scoreboard.

Recent developments surrounding the South China Sea
President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he was not satisfied with talks aimed at averting a trade war with China. RIMPAC is held every two years and involves more than 20 countries, including Japan, India, and the UK.

By one measure, it was far and away the most impressive game of Durant's career as he made four shots from 30 feet out or farther. The effort to spread the ball around was concerted as James logged nine first-half assists. Kevin Love had 20 points and 13 rebounds and J.R. Smith finished with 13 points, finally making some shots.

Durant, however, had 24 points in the opening two quarters, including a deep 3 on Golden State's final possession of the half, and the Cavaliers took a 58-52 lead into the intermission. Teammates Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson have been playing well, too, and are in striking distance. For the team, another title would solidify them as one of the greatest teams in National Basketball Association history, and for superstars like Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry, another ring will boost their already stellar all-time resumes and push them closer to the top of the mountain. And the Warriors are ecstatic that Irving, now with the Boston Celtics via an offseason trade, won't be suiting up in this year's Game 4.

While Curry was struggling to find his shooting stroke, Durant was having one of his patented offensive outbursts.

But the highlight came with 1:37 remaining when Iguodala made a driving dunk to give the Warriors a three-point lead, 103-100.

Durant scored 43 points in Game 3, leading the Warriors to a 110-102 victory in Cleveland.

They built a lead as big as 13.

"That's what they do".
