Cavaliers let chances slip away _ again _ in NBA Finals

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

Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and JaVale McGee each had 10 points. Now, down three games to none in the championship round, his dream of winning more than one ring with the Cavaliers is all but over.

Here are two things to look for in Game 3 on Wednesday (9 p.m. ET, ABC). He was referring to Durant's clutch 3-pointer during the Warriors' 118-113 victory over the host Cavaliers in Game 3 of last year's Finals. Kevin Love swished a 3 on the first possession, J.R. Smith coolly sank one on the second, and the shots continued to rain - and slam - in.

CLEVELAND - For nine years, Kevin Durant played wonderful games against LeBron James, his growth over the years moving alongside James' own development as one of the game's greatest ever. But as Cavs coach Tyronn Lue replied in deadpan fashion before the game when asked who would be the night's key player, the answer - as it usually is - was James. Moreover, Durant also was a ideal 7-for-7 from the foul line and grabbed 13 rebounds to go with seven assists. "He would have been very good for us in the post-season", James said.

Trump's comment on Twitter sets the stage for what could be an uncomfortable confrontation over economic policy on Friday. The U.S. president's move immediately angered European leaders and other foreign trading partners.


The biggest difference in his performances at home versus the road in the playoffs is his scoring. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 33.3 percent from beyond the arc and 75.6 percent from the free throw line.

It's a notion that later made Durant laugh.

The Warriors are 6-17 ATS in their last 23 games playing on 1 days rest, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Central.

An Israeli army spokesperson told Middle East Eye that Tamimi was shot after allegedly hitting a soldier with a rock. Israel says it has a right to defend itself from violent rioters, who want to cross the border fence.


LeBron James will dunk on you, whether you like it or not. Which, needless to say, his team will need in order to win. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 31.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.1 rebounds per game. He became the sixth player in Finals history to top 50 points, and the only one to lose in the process.

James landed badly going for a rebound early in the second quarter and limped on his right ankle, but the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player kept the Cavaliers in contention to the end. Even if Iguodala doesn't return on Wednesday, the Warriors could use their next-best-thing lineup more than they have thus far.

If this series does not lead James to greener courts elsewhere, nothing will.

James arrived at 6 p.m. dressed more casually - camouflage trousers, purple hoodie, "Billionaire Boys Club" baseball cap - than on the road where he and the Cavs have been wearing suits during the postseason.
