Cavaliers facing critical Game 3 vs. Warriors in NBA Finals

LeBron James

And yet, we are still talking about it.

There are also some milestones awaiting LeBron James in Game 3. The Cavs, who climbed from a 2-0 hole to beat Boston in the conference finals, have major roster holes and unfixable flaws. He puts his hands to his head, bends over, and presumably mutters several naughty words to himself.

Game 1 of this series will be remembered by how Cleveland let it get away; the botched rebound by Smith to be forever played as one of those quintessential wish-you-had-it-back moments.

"To know where I come from, small city 35 miles south of here, and to hear I'm in the same category or talked about and jumping these greats in the playoffs, it's pretty cool", James said.

"We had our chances", James said. "I guess y'all probably seen the reaction from that point on". They made the right adjustments and played the right lineups.

"Damn cameras", James joked when asked about the video.

James laughed off the idea that he might be taking heat for his alleged leadership faults. "He was like, 'What you on?' and I'm like, 'What you mean what I'm on?' I'm sitting over here". But I think having guys that get so excited about a good play, a good block or a good rotation or a good shot or dagger shot.

The Golden State Warriors grabbed a 2-0 advantage to start their annual NBA Finals matchup with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Stephen Curry and coach Steve Kerr's Golden State Warriors have repeatedly said they want to build something special for the long haul, to compete for championships year after year. "We just have to be ready". Our guys just play.

When he takes the floor, it'll be for the 238th playoff game of his career. There have been games where Steph takes over.

Both teams battled through a tight one-possession game throughout most of the fourth, exchanging leads but also missing several shots that could have proved difference-making for either side. How are we going to attack? We've taken several punches from them and we're up one.

Kevin Durant added 26 points, Klay Thompson had 20 and JaVale McGee added 12 to spark the Warriors. Curry is healthy and hitting shots, meaning he is going to be at most annoying at all times on the court. "It's nothing really magical about what I do or how I've been playing. I just internalize", Durant said.

J.R. Smith inexplicably held onto the ball with only a few seconds left, after grabbing an offensive rebound in a tied Game 1, resulting in overtime, where the Cleveland Cavaliers ran out of gas.

"You know, we've got a lot of depth. That situation may not happen again", he said. "Those combinations are tough to stop".

The Raptors guard is the second Raptor to win it, following Chris Bosh in 2010.

"In the Finals, this is the only building I know what that experience is like", Curry said.
