In what appeared to be an exact replication of the same game in the 2017 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors took Game 3 from the Cleveland Cavaliers, 110-102, to take a 3-0 series lead for the second consecutive season.
James has done almost everything for the Cavs, averaging 40 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10.5 assists through the first two Finals games.
He even had the highlight play of the series, a shot (which was really a pass) off the backboard to himself that he rebounded and viciously dunked.
Iguodala was injured in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets. This time, the longer one put Golden State up by six and sent fans starting to head toward the exits. It would seem that unless the Cavaliers can make history with four straight wins, his efforts were not enough.
Cleveland may be staring at a 4-0 drubbing in the National Basketball Association finals, but at least one player managed to crack a smile during their Game 3 loss. But third quarters have kind of been our Achilles heel all year. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world but him could have made those shots".
"Andre helps us in every regard, " Golden State coach Steve Kerr said before the game.

The Heat haven't been in the NBA Finals since 2014, but that doesn't mean South Florida has stopped watching the championship series.
With the Cavaliers knowing their backs were against the wall, it was expected that they would come out of the gates flying in Game 3.
James led the Cavaliers with 33 points. "It feels good to play well, but at the same time we need to get the one game two days from now".
"It's a tie between MJ and Kob", Durant said. A year ago we were up 2, and he pulled up pretty much right at the three-point line and got a great contest, but he made it.
"We have a lot of talent", James said.
