Cavaliers let chances slip away -- again -- in NBA Finals

Cavaliers let chances slip away -- again -- in NBA Finals

He finished with 33 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists - his 10th triple-double in the Finals which is now an NBA Finals record. They can knock the Warriors around below the rim, frustrating shooters and making the pretty look ugly.

"It's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do".

Despite all their talent, the Warriors needed seven games to defeat the top-seeded Rockets in the Western Conference finals. Draymond Green, Golden State's emotional leader, absorbed three early fouls, got hit with a technical and did not have a fantastic game. He suffered a bruised right leg in the second quarter but returned in the fourth quarter. I'm talking about this series featuring the Warriors and the Cavaliers.

The Warriors have had too much for the James-inspired Cavs in the opening three games of the series, with Kevin Durant turning in a match-winning display in Cleveland for a 110-102 triumph.

Question marks hang over Liverpool's Loris Karius following his two huge blunders in last month's Champions League final. Barcelona goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has responded to speculation linking him with a move to the Premier League .

James won two titles with Miami and achieved his goal of bringing a crown to his home region, but the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player would fall to 3-6 in the finals with a loss this year.

Smith, a Cleveland Cavaliers guard, received the ovation during the pregame introductions of Game 2.

It added that Israel was attempting to "mislead Argentinians into believing that Jerusalem is united for the Jewish people". Saturday's match was set to be played at the Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem, which sits on the site of a Palestinian village.

LeBron James, who scored 51 points in Thursday's loss, faced a more dogged defence on Sunday but still managed 29 points on 10-20 shooting while playing almost the entire game.

"We've got to come out with a sense of urgency to start", Warriors forward Kevin Durant said. "We've played some really good basketball on our home floor". The Cavaliers' offense is 7.9 points per 100 possessions better in Quicken Loans Arena, and their defense is 7.4 per 100 better. The thought of what happened then lingers.

James suffered an ankle injury in Wednesday's defeat but confirmed he will be available for the next game on Friday, as the Cavs face an uphill battle. Cleveland will spend the rest of this series trying to be the first to do that.

'So I think that's definitely helped us out a lot throughout this post-season thus far. "We know it's going to be tough to hear one another, but we've got to be better with that".
