Andre Iguodala of Golden State Warriors pain-free, eyes Finals return

Let's discuss whether or not Cleveland can battle back as we take a quick glance at what the oddsmakers are dealing.

Perhaps the key question surrounding Game 3 is whether the Cavaliers can muster the same type of energy and effort they used for an inspired Game 1 effort that memorably came up short amid a flurry of questionable calls and J.R. Smith's infamous mental gaffe on the final play of regulation. James replied when first asked about the video.

After Sunday's loss, LeBron James talked about "being uncomfortable", this next week, that the Cavs can't simply expect to win just because they are playing at home. "I got to the bench, first thing that came to my mind [was], 'OK, I was calling a timeout". I didn't want another C-Webb (Chris Webber) incident. "I guess y'all probably seen the reaction from that point".

James then got serious, and suggested he has already done enough to lift up his teammates.

"I don't know why people keep wanting to pick battles this way", he said.

Probably the only thing that Stephen Curry doesn't have on the resume is an NBA Finals MVP.

US companies leery of Trump tariffs
Mr Lange said he would like to see tariffs imposed on "symbolic" United States products such as Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Mexico said it would impose tariffs on pork bellies, apples, grapes, cheeses and flat steel coming from the U.S.

LeBron: I mean, when you're down like this, in a deficit like this versus a team like this, there's no good feeling. Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said he and his assistants have been in constant huddle to find "adjustments of what's hurting" the Cavs. "This is a team you don't want to be down 0-3 against".

It's easy to understand Lue's confidence.

Since Game 6 of the Houston series, Curry has shot 5-of-9 on give-and-go 3-point tries. With that said, the Cavs now must win four of the next five games. "We kind of knew that was it". Along with hitting a record nine treys, Curry scored a game-high 33 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished eight assists in 37 minutes. And Kevin Love was right on me. "We have a great opportunity to do that". But beneath the surface, Curry is giving the troubled Cavs' defense fits in part because of what he and Klay Thompson do better than anyone else: Move without the ball to free themselves for open shots. If Golden State gets that from any members of the non-Big Four, the Warriors just aren't going to lose. They're shooting 44.2 percent overall and 31.0 percent from deep on the road, 47.7/37.0 at home. "We've got to be better". He has been an athletic two-way guard, semi-reliable veteran, champion and is top 12 all time in 3's made for his career. On Thursday, the Warriors' overtime victory gave us one relatable moment that will be remembered long after the score settled.

"I wouldn't say it's a curse".

That space often comes in the form of a big like Love or Clint Capela lacking the footspeed necessary to track Curry all the way back out to the 3-point line after cutting through the paint. "I eat the fruits of his labor".

"That's definitely helped us out a lot throughout this postseason thus far".
