So let’s see what LeBron James has left in the tank.
James is making his seventh consecutive NBA Finals appearance and eighth overall. “We’re happy, we’re pumped because of the way the game ended, but we got a lot of work to do”. After finishing with the best record in National Basketball Association history (73-9) a year ago, Golden State failed to close out the Finals to win consecutive titles after leading three games to one, giving the Cavaliers their first-ever title and bringing a championship to Cleveland for the first time in many decades.
Previous year the Cavaliers became the first team to win a title after trailing the Finals 3-1 when they beat the Warriors 93-89 in the deciding game. Sure we know he’s among the top two-way players in the game. Two Golden State blowouts, and the Cavaliers searching for answers. Wile James finished with a near- triple-double tally of 39 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists, Kyrie Irving, the hero of last year’s Game 7, piled on 38 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists.
James and Kyrie Irving combined for 77 points, dominating much of the second half, but even their electrifying performance was not enough to put a blemish on the Warriors’ ideal record. It’s probably the most, most firepower I’ve played in my career. It’s a miss-or-make league. For me personally, I gave everything I had tonight.
In Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Golden State went into the unfriendly confines of Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena to take down the Cavaliers 118-113 to push their advantage to 3-0 in the best-of seven series.
Green, who is a power forward, was named to the NBA All-Defensive Team and won his first NBA Championship with the Warriors in 2015.
