Cavaliers let chances slip away again in NBA Finals

Steph Curry

In Kevin Durant's two years with the Golden State Warriors, there may not be a better example of the lift he has provided the team than Game 3 of the NBA Finals. On Wednesday, history repeated itself.

Kevin Durant was nearly unstoppable in Game 3 - going 15-of-23 from the floor, including 6-of-9 from beyond the arc and a ideal 7-of-7 from the line, adding 13 boards, seven assists and a steal in the victory. And while LeBron tipped his cap to KD, disgruntled Cavs fans waited to heckle the reigning NBA Finals MVP outside of the team hotel in Cleveland. Entering this series, some questioned whether Durant and Stephen Curry could strike the right balance. ABC and other popular local and cable channels are included in the Hulu Live TV package, so you'll be able to quickly join in time to watch the Warriors Rockets Game 3 online.

They put on a spirited display and stayed in the contest until the closing minutes but another late dagger three by Durant put the game to bed for the Warriors. The Cavaliers kept him to 11 points on 3-of-16 shooting, leaving Durant to pick up the slack.

For the first time in the NBA Finals, the Warriors had their Hamptons Five (nee "death lineup") at their disposal, as Andre Iguodala returned to action for the first time since the Western Conference finals. "But you definitely tip your hat". You know what I'm saying? They're in luxury tax hell, and the last opportunity to use the Kyrie trade proceeds to either draft an immediate impact player or trade for one fell by the wayside when the lottery gave them the eighth pick.

"And I thought Durant hurt us with his one-on-one, getting to the free-throw line a little bit".

But with the outcome in the balance, Curry drained two crucial attempts in the closing three minutes - a stumbling layup and an enormous unguarded 3-pointer - as well as a dish to a cutting Draymond Green to polish off the Cavs with 25 seconds left. His teammates did the celebrating for him.

Volcano eruption in Central America kills 25 injures hundreds
About 1.7 million people have been affected by the eruption and more than 3,000 evacuated, the Guatemalan government tweeted. Searing flows of ash mixed with water and debris gushed down the volcano's flanks, blocking roads and burning homes.

"For me, tonight will be tough", James said. "I don't buy this whole thing that he's playing with a bunch of garbage". But that was a huge shot.

James will see a historic playoff run end without his fourth ring as he'll suffer another defeat to the Dubs.

But on social media, much of the chatter early in the evening was about LeBron James' first-quarter dunk.

LeBron James led the home side with 33 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists.

"That was unbelievable what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Three. Point switching. We didn't come together on [defensive] switching.
