  • NBA Finals 2018: Warriors vs. Cavs Game 3 Updates

He's doing so again in The Finals against the Warriors, almost triple-doubling in every game while trying to give his Cleveland Cavaliers a fighting chance in this series, who are now faced with a 3-0 deficit and at the brink of elimination.

The Warriors now have Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Iguodala, Livingston, Damian Jones, and Jordan Bell under contract for next season.

"We've had an opportunity to win two of these games in this series and we haven't come up with it", James said.

Back in early March, Anthony Slater of The Athletic asked Durant if it's 100 percent certain that he will be back with Golden State in 2018-19. The Warriors lead the NBA Finals 3-0 over the Cavaliers.

LeBron James has pulled his Cleveland Cavaliers to an improbable National Basketball Association finals.

The rest of the 7 roster spots will have to be filled out mostly through minimum contracts they negotiate with players.

In Game 3 of the Finals a year ago in the same building, Durant hit a deep 3-pointer to give the Warriors a 3-0 series lead.

Barring a miracle, they're about to take three of four Finals showdowns from the Cavaliers. But with just under three minutes left, the Warriors started to take control. Throughout the Houston series, a lot of folks criticised Kevin Durant for his iso plays, calling the move "selfish", and saying it was bogging down the offense.




In Game 3, for example, on a night where Curry and Thompson had 21 points combined, Durant ended up with 43 points.

LeBron James might be playing his "last" game for the Cleveland Cavaliers for the second and final time on Friday as the National Basketball Association superstar prepares to become a free agent on July 1. We're just trying to play a solid, focused game.

Then, as they often do, the Warriors exploded in the third quarter, using a quick 9-3 spurt after the break to level the score and taking off from there.

It was unclear, however, whether Iguodala can join Golden State's active roster in time for Game 3 at Cleveland on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila). Curry continued to struggle to find his shot and Durant began to shoot wildly in an attempt to shoulder the load. "I've just got stay locked in".

"It's definitely a tough loss", said Cavaliers star LeBron James. He rewarded Lue with 15 points and a strong game.

While Stephen Curry seemed to be inspired after an altercation with Kendrick Perkins, some of his Warriors teammates are upset about the Game 2 incident.

After watching the ball swish through the net, a deadpan Durant casually walked to the Warriors' bench while Curry was in his face yelling ecstatically and Draymond Green behind him cursing with joy. There are just 27 of them total outside of LeBron.
