Cavs' J.R. Smith struggles in Game 2 after Game 1 blunder

Stephen Curry finished by shooting 11-of-26 from the floor 9-of-17 from 3-point range with seven rebounds and eight assists as the Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland 122-103

Durant scored 43 points, draining a long 3-pointer in the final minute to cap his magnificent performance, and the Warriors beat James and the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-102 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night to move within a victory of a sweep, their second straight title and third championship in four years. "We're doing some good things, but it's not translating into Ws so we've got to figure it out".

Game 3 of the NBA Finals tips off at 11:00am Thursday (AUS time).

Everything is more relaxed and familiar at home for James and his teammates, who were counting on a return to their own noisy building, where they play better and shoot better, to get them back into the series. "But that shouldn't give us any comfort", James said.

"We want to continue to be uncomfortable", James said. "Just because we're going home doesn't mean we can relax", LeBron said.

"It sucks to lose, that's for sure, but it definitely won't stop me from preparing to be better", James said. As a team, the Warriors shot a healthy 57 percent from the field and 15 of 36 from the three-point line as they led by 13 points at halftime before running away with the game in the fourth quarter where Curry took over. This year's Warriors and Cavaliers, two teams known more for their high-powered offenses than their tough defenses, are no exception.

Chemotherapy is not needed in 70% of cases of breast cancer
Women with breast cancer are at risk of having their disease spread to the lymph nodes, and from there elsewhere in the body. Women can have the tendency to turn towards chemo, even if the results have a relatively small benefit, Albain says.

"I never woke up and was like, 'All right, let's go get nine threes and get the record.' It was more so about playing the game the right way, having good intentions out there on the court and good things happen". Lue gave Smith the hard assignments during the postseason, believing it made Smith more focused on one specific challenge and provided him a chance for redemption after ranking as one of the league's worst statistically on the defensive end. "But the energy and effort and physicality and all that from the jump was pretty dialed in and it gave us a lot of momentum and confidence".

It's quite understandable that he's upset about the Cavaliers' 2-0 deficit, but it's also interesting that he's still confident heading into the rest of the series. With the series shifting to Cleveland, I expect the Cavaliers' role players to step up at home where they've been great in these playoffs but I just don't see it being enough.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue stressed the need for a body-banging style from his squad. They know it, too. "I don't think so", Lue said. They ran around a little too freely.

Smith made just 2 of 9 shots and didn't make a single basket after the first quarter as the Cavaliers fell into an 0-2 series hole after a 122-103 defeat. Last year, his tweet calling Trump a "bum", when he defended Steph Curry and the Warriors' decision not to visit the White House, was the most retweeted post by an athlete of 2017.
