NBA Finals 2018: Warriors vs

NBA finals: Warriors take 3-0 lead against Cavs

Kevin Durant stood calmly near midcourt - and a very familiar spot - as teammates Stephen Curry and Draymond Green screamed at him in celebration.

Durant's final points came on a 3-pointer that was shot a few feet back from the spot he pulled up from in Game 3 of last year's Finals. He scored 43 points, and received some incredible praise from LeBron. It was the first sweep in the NBA Finals since 2007, when the Cavs lost to the Spurs.

James, 33, has carried the Cavs all season to the finals and is averaging just shy of a triple-double per game this series.

He did apologize to Portland after saying that, while smiling and nearly cracking up. "In Game 1, I could feel a difference in intensity and that was the main thing throughout and even if you just look at the numbers, playing against some of the best teams in the league, we had a really good defensive grading, field goal percentage defense". They were ahead by so much that Cavs superstar LeBron was finally given a much deserved rest, getting taken out of the game with over four minutes left.

For his overall playoff performance, Durant was named the MVP of the NBA Finals for a second straight season.

If the film collects Rs 280 crore more then it will secure a position on the list of 2018's commercial hit films. Heaping praises on director Ranjith, she asserts the film has a stamp of the director all over it.

For the Cavaliers, it was a carbon copy of a gut punch after they led by as many as 13 points early.

LeBron James led Cleveland with 23 points, seven rebounds and eight assists, but also had six turnovers.

The game reached its zenith in the fourth when Curry finally found his range, hitting his only three with the game on the line, but finishing just 3-16 from the floor.

Lue said his players were down after Wednesday's loss, a game in which they led by as many as 13 points, but have moved on and are raring to go for Friday's do-or-die Game Four.

"This was the hardest one we've had by far", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. And just like past year, it was nothing but net.

The Cavs, predictably, turned up the physicality to begin the game, bullying the smaller Warriors in the post, dominating the boards (a 47-37 rebound advantage), and playing more balanced beyond the expected heroics of LeBron James. Will Golden State raise the trophy or will Cleveland manage to keep the series going? He could stay a Cavalier or elect to opt out of his current contract and play somewhere else where he thinks he has a chance to win.
