Kobe Bryant doesn't buy the idea that LeBron James has no help

So do their other defensive issues, such as the inability to switch cleanly off the ball.

James finished with 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in Game 3, accounting for his 10th triple-double in the NBA Finals, adding to his all-time record (Magic Johnson is second, with eight).

And Durant worked them with cruel efficiency.

James won two titles with Miami and achieved his goal of bringing a crown to his home region, but the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player would fall to 3-6 in the finals with a loss this year.

The Golden State Warriors have been forced to deal with a few injuries in the 2018 NBA Finals. Game 4 is Friday night in Cleveland. "I know how clips can get broken up and somebody can clip that and be like, 'oh, LeBron said he doesn't feel good'".

KD wasn't the Cavaliers' only problem. But even without one of their max players, the Celtics would be an intriguing landing spot - full of young, athletic wings who can switch defensively and score. One area it looks to have already improved on, though, is the game's cover. Many of those uncontested.

"We had some slip-ups and things we can correct going into game three", Curry said.

Korver, in particular, has been ineffective against the Warriors and his lack of shot making has hurt them badly. But there are a lot of bad signs in Cleveland now.


Iguodala is the best LeBron James defender, a great assist passer, and the playmaker who could ably replace Curry when he is out. There are just 27 of them total outside of LeBron.

LeBron James is on.

The Cavaliers quickly made seven of their first 13 shots - and throw out one of the misses, because it was on objective. He eventually took six threes, hitting just one, but he was carrying this team. He rewarded Lue with 15 points and a strong game. We played them well the first game.

Cavs guard J.R. Smith, whose late-game blunder in the opener denied Cleveland a potential winning shot, was greeted with a standing ovation by Warriors fans and chants of "M-V-P" when he went to the free throw line.

Iguodala is a former NBA Finals MVP that the Warriors will welcome back with open arms. "I'm in the NBA Finals, looking for a championship". He kept the Warriors close with his shooting (well, that and the off-ball movement that continues to lead to lay-up after lay-up for the Warriors).

In Cleveland, the rim shrunk for Warriors' sharpshooters Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. He returned in the third quarter.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Andre Iguodala (knee) was questionable for Game 3. Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown would both be better options against the Warriors than anybody on the Cavaliers roster this season.
