Smith denies tweeting 'Cavs in 7' after Game 3 loss

That ball movement has resulted in 94 assists for Golden State through the first three games compared to 59 assists for Cleveland. "But we'll go back and tee it up again". The comeback Cavaliers are at it again. If I become an owner, I'm going to try to sign everybody. "If we play like we did tonight, it's very possible". They made some tough shots, but we were not sharp defensively, so always a combination. When asked about the road Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry took to reach this point in their first season together, Kerr brought up the former Heat duo of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.

No team has erased a 3-0 deficit in any series.

No team has escaped a 3-0 deficit to win an NBA play-off series in 126 tries and the Warriors can claim the crown by winning game five at home on Monday in Oakland, California, but the Cavs made the greatest NBA Finals comeback past year from 3-1 down to beat the Warriors.

His three-pointer with 45.3 seconds remaining was the go-ahead basket as the Warriors scored the game's final 11 points.

Draymond Green hates Cleveland and Cavs fans.

"We don't want to go back to the Bay", Klay Thompson said. Cleveland's offense looked more like the side that dominated the Eastern Conference playoffs.

"Against a team like this, those type of runs you just can't afford", James said. They won a championship, and a year ago it was the greatest regular-season team we had played, probably one of the best postseason teams that everybody's ever seen as well, but we were just able to overcome that.

"I don't know, man - I couldn't go to sleep", Myers told The Greg Papa Show.

The Warriors answered Irving and James with 31 from Durant, 30 from Thompson and 26 from Curry while shooting 16-of-33 from deep. It's one of the best basketball games I've seen, and I hope I could say that win or lose. "Not going to overreact to one. I'm pretty good, I would think".

Durant is averaging 34 points, 10 rebounds and 6.0 assists in the Finals, joining Michael Jordan and Shaquille O'Neal as the only players with at least 25 points in their first eight Finals games. You got the game f-ed up with that one.

"We have championship DNA", said James, who broke Magic Johnson's record with his ninth triple-double in the Finals.

"But I didn't tweet that", Smith repeated after his 16-point performance in Game 3.

Kyrie Irving led all scorers with 40 points. We're celebrating on their floor, celebrating in their locker room, quieting their crowd.

Green himself was the subject of a freakish third-quarter sequence in which he appeared to have gotten a second technical foul - and an ejection - only to have it later revealed that an early technical assigned to him had been switched to coach Steve Kerr. If guys like Kyle Korver and Williams can't get going, the load is simply too much to handle for two players. Pachulia could have been tossed, but was only given a technical, as was Shumpert.

Despite the loss, Durant scored 35 points to lead Golden State.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue was part of the 2001 Lakers who entered the Finals 11-0 (the first round was best-of-five). This was the Cleveland's game until they collapsed and Durant came to life.

To even stay close to the juggernaut that is the Warriors, you have to get more from your role players.
