NBA Finals 2018: LeBron James sets another record

07 June, 2018, 11:26 | Author: Tommie Newton
  • J.R. Smith has made only five of his 19 shots in the first two games of the NBA Finals against Klay Thompson and the Warriors

And with 49 seconds left, Durant delivered points 41, 42 and 43 on a death stare 3-pointer from 5 feet behind the line to seal the game and give Golden State an 110-102 win and what appears to be an insurmountable 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals.

"He's an assassin", said LeBron James, whose triple-double (33 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds) wasn't enough.

The Warriors did it despite one of the most brutal shooting performances of Steph Curry's career, as he shot just 3-of-16 from the field overall and was 1-of-10 from downtown after his historic outing in Game 2.

"We definitely have to win tonight", said Brown.

"They play well at home, we understand that", Lue said of Golden State.

Golden State is just too good and too deep for the Cavs, who are too often exposed as a one-man team powered by James.

And now they're poised for another, leading 2-0 with game three Wednesday in Cleveland.

But before he orders his moving van, James will try to beat the Warriors in Game 3 at Quicken Loans Arena on Wednesday night. They finished the Cavaliers off in five games in 2017.

Kevin Durant torched the Cavaliers with a playoff-career high 43 points as the Warriors overcame a 13-point, first-half deficit to close in on their third National Basketball Association title in four seasons.

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. "I think being able to play off of each other definitely helps". They play free, without much angst when things don't go well, adding to what James called "the level of stress" for opponents. The Warriors are not invulnerable, but the point still stands that those vulnerabilities come across as being of their own choosing, something that flies in the face of everything we have ever known about professional sport.

Three 3-pointers by Curry sparked a 19-8 Warriors second-quarter run as Golden State took a 59-46 halftime edge. JaVale McGee scored on a series of lay-ups, Curry started to find his shot and Durant kept pouring in bucket after bucket.
