Warriors Should Close Out Cavs In Game 4

Warriors Should Close Out Cavs In Game 4

"We've had an opportunity to win two of these games in this three-game series so far and haven't come up with it", said James, whose Cavaliers teeter on extinction as the Warriors look to complete a 4-0 NBA Finals sweep Friday in what could be his last game in Cleveland. It might be time for the guys from Northern California to order some champagne from Napa Valley.

James, still focused on the opponent in front of him, lauded the Warriors.

Think the Trail Blazers still regret drafting Greg Oden No. 1 in the 2007 draft instead of Durant, who went No. 2? "I don't want to downplay anything, but I don't want to act like this is the end of the road".

"Obviously, from a talent perspective, if you're looking at Golden State from their top five best players to our top five players, you would say they're stacked better than us". Cleveland kept everyone in check with the exception of Durant.

The Warriors are just one win away from successfully defending their NBA title against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.

When Curry, Thompson and Green underperformed in Game 3, the NBA's second-best player led them to victory. They got a little of both. This season feels different, though the Cavs have been more competitive in losing the first three games.

Dribbling near the foul lane, he used a head fake on McGee before stepping past the Warriors centre.

The Cavs had a near-perfect start and built a 16-4 lead during a wild stretch that saw James whip the home crowd into a frenzy when he threw an alley-opp pass to himself off the backboard. The Warriors, in rope-a-dope fashion, took countless body blows but were down only six at halftime.

He said he tried to "fast track" Kryie Irving's mind when James returned to Cleveland four years ago.

James arrived at 6 p.m. dressed more casually - camouflage trousers, purple hoodie, "Billionaire Boys Club" baseball cap - than on the road where he and the Cavs have been wearing suits during the post-season.

"When they make you pay.it comes in the bunches", James said. Instead, the four-time MVP reflected on the huge talent that he and his teammates have had to play against in the last four NBA Finals series.

Neither do 28 other teams, but the Cavaliers' problems with him get exposed on the biggest of National Basketball Association stages.

Cavaliers: Kyle Korver continued to struggle. James (238) broke a tie with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and moved into fourth place for the most playoff games.

"Yeah, I actually said the wrong thing", Green said.

And as for the Irving trade, the point guard wanted out of Cleveland because he was exhausted of being in LeBron's shadow, when James didn't step up and demanding to the Cavs organization that Irving not be traded, it said a lot about their relationship.
