Two things to watch in Game 3: Small ball and early screens

Open thread: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA finals

The Warriors star blew the Cleveland Cavaliers away in OH, scoring 43 points and recording 13 rebounds to secure a 110-102 victory and a 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals.

LeBron and the Cavaliers made their push in the fourth quarter, but the Warriors scored on their final six possessions of the game and it summed up the night: Curry wide-open lay-up, Curry open three, Andre Iguodala dunk, Durant three, Draymond Green dunk, and then eventually a couple of Curry free throws.

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

Cleveland has been close in two games of this series and yet it was obvious to James as he fell into a chair at his post-game press conference that Golden State is too loaded.

"I'm sure LeBron wouldn't accept that", said Kevin Durant, when faced with the possibility of James winning Finals MVP as a member of a losing team, according to Connor LeTourneau of The San Francisco Chronicle.

In fact, Kendrick Perkins reportedly directed a monstrous double middle finger salute at Durant while the reigning Finals MVP was at the podium answering questions from the media. "There's not really much pressure on them". They've both averaged 32 points in those games, shot nearly the exact same field goal percentage, and were close in rebounds. But with just under three minutes left, the Warriors started to take control.

"Well I have bad news for you - I just sat down with him about half a hour ago and he said he's re-signing with Golden State this summer".

Another victory Friday night in Cleveland will give the Warriors not only their second straight National Basketball Association championship, but also their third title in four years. Friday's Game 4 could be his last with his hometown franchise. In 41 road games, he averaged 27.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.6 assists per game.

Elon Musk will stay on as Tesla chairman despite attempted investor coup
Tesla has focused on high-priced configurations, some exceeding $70,000, since the auto began rolling off assembly lines in 2017. According to Musk, the Model Y probably won't have any leather and it might not even have a steering wheel.

Golden State leads the series, 3-0.

Durant went to the University of Texas, and you could call the school "butt", since in 2017, it came in at 9th in the BIG 12. But there was one playmaker that didn't have an off night, Kevin Durant.

"It's definitely a tough loss and we had our chances", James said. They must play better, on both ends of the floor, than they did in Games 1 and 2. I'll wake up Friday morning, I'll be locked in on the game plan and what needs to be done to help our team win.

Video emerged Thursday afternoon of a freakish exchange between the former Thunder teammates, as Durant can be seen on the podium mouthing what appears to be "f-k you" to Perkins as the big man apparently walked by. We want to hear from the PistonPowered community.
