Ref inbounded the ball for LeBron James and the Cavs

"Our switches and our schemes have been pretty on point", Cavs forward Kevin Love said.

The Cavs will need much more from Smith when the series shifts to Cleveland for Game 3 on Wednesday night if they are going to match their comeback from an 0-2 deficit that they accomplished in beating the Warriors for the title two years ago and in the Eastern Conference finals last month against Boston. "The one he made tonight was about four or five feet behind the one he made previous year".

James made a layup to pull the Cavs within four, it was too little too late as the Warriors closed it out and beat Cleveland for the fourth straight time in finals games. The Cavaliers wound up losing in overtime.

"We want to continue to be uncomfortable", James said via FearTheSword.

"He's one of the best players I've ever played against and this league has ever seen", James said. This wasn't just a gaffe. For much of the NBA's history, what any individual player has said during the Finals hasn't necessarily been a big deal.

"I don't like the way I feel, the mood I'm in right now", James said. But I think he's getting closer, and I'm hopeful that he can play.

To say Smith was the reason Cleveland lost Thursday night isn't right, or fair.

JaVale McGee scored six points and Durant added five in a 15-3 Golden State run early in the third quarter that produced the Warriors' first lead and saw it grow to a team-best 69-64. "To be in that situation is tough and it's not a situation everybody can handle, so I'm glad it happened to me".

"After the game, LeBron discussed how many people try to "kill" his teammates and the lack of help he receives". He's been there before. "I've always been the one guy who's the butt of the jokes, or that one guy who does something insane and everybody's got to look at or whatever the case may be. If we don't, then don't come to practice tomorrow". It's been like that my whole life. The Raptors have made four trips to the south shore of Lake Erie in the past three years, and they are a smooth 0-7 over that time.

"He's going to start". "J.R. can shake off anything, and when everybody tends to count J.R. out, that's when he comes through". Hood only played four minutes in the first two games. "You play more games at home than you do on the road as far as in certain arenas". Abdul-Jabbar attended the game and got a rousing ovation when introduced in the third quarter. That allowed the Cavaliers to have 12 more shots than the Warriors, including eight more makes. LeBron, this crowd and their environment, we know the kind of force they're going to bring.

LeBron: Give me one second, sorry.

His presence on the court makes the Warriors so risky and while he's not in prime shape and probably won't be before this series ends Game 3 showed the value of having Iggy's level-headedness on the floor when things broke down for the Dubs.
