Cavaliers face now-or-never home stand in NBA Finals

Cavaliers face now-or-never home stand in NBA Finals

Yes, that was a better Cavs team - they had Kyrie Irving - and Durant had yet to join Golden State, but numerous same players remain on both teams.

The Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers duke it out in a pivotal Game 3 of the NBA Finals at the Quicken Loans Arena on Thursday night.

With the series shifting to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4, LeBron insists that Golden State hasn't sapped the joy from him. In 17 minutes, the sharpshooter was a flawless (imperfect?) 0-for-3 from the floor (0-for-1 from deep) while notching just one point. It's easy to forget just how good a prospect he was earlier in his career - he was the LA Clippers' point guard of the future before a horrific knee injury altered the trajectory of his career. "Just being in front of our crowd will be huge for us".

"It's going to be a tough task", Golden State forward Draymond Green said. "We can't keep taking positives from losses. We're doing some good things, but it's not translating into Ws so we've got to figure it out".

Every time these teams have met in The Finals, Cleveland has had to start on the road. I've made just as many J.R. meme's. They need their role players not just to fill in, but to push past their expectations in some kind of consistent manner. "We should still be uncomfortable". "I don't think you go away from that because we're really only talking about one play". 'Because the outside world is pitting us together, why do you and I have to now have this disdain between us?

Kerr remains optimistic the 2015 NBA Finals MVP will play at some point in the series.

15/3/2 - When you have to guard Steph Curry pretty much the whole time you're on the court, it's hard to conserve some energy for offense. "They have only lost one game so they are very confident there".

Curry left the game with less than four minutes to go in the game and the Warriors comfortably ahead.

Curry broke an NBA Finals record by making nine three-point shots before he and his teammates won Sunday's game 122 -103.

"It's tough - really tough - to guard Steph anywhere out there on the floor because he's just so good at finding himself open", Love said after the game, in which Curry shot a flawless 5-of-5 from 3-point range in the final period. The Cavs are 0-2.

While his shot - the primary weapon that earned him a $57 million contract following Cleveland's championship season - has been inconsistent for a bulk of this postseason, the Cavs don't have many other options to replace him. "They ran around a little too freely".

Just to underscore further how the 3-point shot has become such a ubiquitous part of a team's offense, consider the following insane stat shared by Tommy Beer of Rotoworld.
