Cavaliers let chances slip away _ again _ in NBA Finals

Orleans Pelicans at Golden State Warriors

Andre Iguodala expected to play Game 3 of NBA finals

The project is will include more restaurants and interior space for fans who come to The Q. As part of the deal, the Cavaliers also extended their lease into 2034. "It was nearly like I was cussing him out, but I was so happy".

Curry called Durant's zone "supreme self confidence".

Don't let Durant fool you, though.

"That margin for error is so little, so thin against them, I think in some cases you have to be ideal", Love said.

Everything is more relaxed and familiar at home for James and his teammates, who were counting on a return to their own noisy building, where they play better and shoot better, to get them back into the series. "So, I was definitely excited".

LeBron James: Cavs & Warriors Don't Want Invite To White House
Coach Doug Pederson had met with the team recently to gauge what the feeling around the locker room might be. The White House sent an email to all staff members inviting them to come to the event that morning.

Before leaving Game 3 with an injury, Iguodala has scored 10 points on 4-for-6 shooting, had 3 rebounds and 3 steals in 37 minutes.

Durant, once again, has taken over the center stage. Durant is giving the Warriors 26 points and nine boards so far in the Finals. Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and JaVale McGee each had 10 points. "That was wonderful what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant postgame. "We watched tape. We watched film and see the things that we can get better at, very minor things".

Cleveland threw the first punch with a 14-4 run to start the first quarter, but Durant allowed Golden State to hang around with 13 first-quarter points on 4-of-4 shooting.

The second quarter is more of the same as the Sixers just keep pouring it on. That came when his teammates were an uncharacteristic 1-of-11 from beyond the arc. He hasn't played since Game 3 of the Western Conference finals. The Warriors trailed 58-52 at halftime, but without Durant putting on an offensive clinic, the Cavs certainly would have been up by double-digits.

"I try not to think about just scoring, but, you know, we struggled to shoot the ball early on and I felt like I had some good looks", Durant said. "We've done a great job of playing here throughout the course of the play-offs".

Golden Knights vs. Capitals: Game 5 Prediction
The Capitals will prepare for a potentially historic night in the same way they have for the previous 105 games this season. Reilly Smith made it 3-2 just before the intermission when a spinning Alex Tuch pass left him with an empty net.

The Warriors recaptured the lead and held it at 83-81 heading into the fourth quarter. It's hard to go against this Warriors team, but LeBron and the Cavaliers are playing for their playoff lives now and I think they can bounce back and avoid the series sweep with a hard-fought win here. After a Tristan Thompson miss, Durant ran down the shot clock then pulled up from 33 feet. Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue after practice Tuesday said getting off to a fast start would be critical. "He was four or five feet behind the line".

But the biggest shot of the evening came with under a minute left.

"Different game, different season, different feel", Durant shrugged afterward, knowing full well how similar it was to the one he hit last season and knowing what it means right now. He took control of the moment for the second straight season and pushed the Cavaliers one step closer to the brink of elimination and an uncomfortable offseason. James acknowledged the Cavs are facing a "tall task" as it is against the Warriors, who are seeking their second straight title and third in four years. That point was driven home seven-feet deeper this time. Brewers third baseman Travis Shaw, who went to Kent State and grew up in Northeast Ohio, wore a LeBron James jersey in the clubhouse the past two days. LeBron James will pass Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (237 games) for the fourth-most playoff games in National Basketball Association history. "That's what he does".

"It was a big shot for them, kind of like it was previous year", Lue said. He's thinking about the next one. "I don't want to downplay anything, but I don't want to act like this is the end of the road".
