Tony, Romona and Mark preview Game 3 of the NBA Finals — OVERTIME

Lebron James is on a mission to try to add another ring to his legacy.

Facing the Cavaliers and LeBron James in the Finals for a fourth straight year, the Warriors have a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series going into Game 3 on June 6 at Quicken Loans Arena.

No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

With the Cavs down 103-100, Durant stood defiantly and nearly motionless after dropping his 33-footer - nearly from the same spot from where he hit one in Game 3 previous year - and effectively ended the fourth straight finals matchup between two teams who have gotten to know each other well since 2015.

"It's just being aggressive, being in the right spot, too", Livingston said.

"No, not at all", he said of the comparison. "I just took the shot".

There was nothing the Cavs could do. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world can hit those but him".

Game four of the NBA Finals tips-off at 9:00 p.m. Friday in Cleveland.

James is averaging an wonderful 40.0 points, 10.5 assists, and 8.5 rebounds on 55.8 percent shooting from the field and 45.4 percent shooting from long range. Cleveland rallied from deficits of 2-0 and 3-1 in 2016 to claim the first title for a major professional sports franchise in Cleveland since the 1964 Browns.

Unfortunately for Greene, mass upheavals forced her to tactfully reassess. But Google has also been facing outside pressure.

"We definitely have to win tonight", said Brown. "They're not going to beat themselves".

Game 1 of this series will be remembered by how Cleveland let it get away; the botched rebound by Smith to be forever played as one of those quintessential wish-you-had-it-back moments.

This could be the last time the 33-year-old plays in Cleveland as he could leave in free agency this summer.

These Cavs can't figure it out. That's what the Warriors brought in Durant to do, for games like this when their other stars struggle - and that's exactly what he has delivered.

The Warriors and Cavs will square off Wednesday in Game 3 of the NBA Finals at 9 p.m. ET, and if Games 1 and 2 tells us anything, there is nearly assuredly going to be more drama unfold in some form or fashion.

Overall, a site which counts hashtags reported it was used more than 1,500 times by the time the game ended. Iguodala makes an impact at both ends, but where he is most effective is at slowing down LeBron James.

The sight of Kevin Durant dribbling up the left wing with under a minute to go would be enough to make any Cleveland fan have sweat-induced night terrors. I don't want to take that for granted; don't get me wrong. The Cavs forward becomes the first player in NBA Finals history to amass 10 triple-doubles.

With the Splash Brothers failing to find the mark, Durant took over, making 15 of his 23 attempts from the field - including a 6-of-9 clip from beyond the arc - completing his virtuoso performance with 13 rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in 43 minutes.

And when James did get his first bucket. But the Warriors' motto is "strength in numbers", and Livingston and McGee are personifying that.

'Star Wars' actress Kelly Marie Tran quits social media after harassment
As of Tuesday, Tran's Instagram page was still visible, with the bio line "Afraid, but doing it anyway", but there were no posts . Ridley never laid the blame for her departure on that gun-happy attention, but as with Tran, the timing was hard to ignore.

The problem, though, was that the Cavs couldn't stop Durant.

It's a notion that later made Durant laugh.

The Cavs kept the game close through most of the fourth quarter.

The Warriors had other plans. The veteran swingman has missed six games since then.

Curry has displayed awe-inspiring brilliance just about every time he has stepped on the court for a playoff game. Only Derek Fisher (259), Tim Duncan (251) and Robert Horry (244) have made most postseason appearances.

Apparently there was one more mandate we forgot to include: Don't let Kevin Durant score 43 points, and don't let him rip your hearts out with a dagger 3-pointer, almost a carbon copy of what he did in the exact same spot in the exact same game a year ago.

"I know it feels like we're down 2-0, and I don't like the way I feel", James said.

Common NBA wisdom dictates that role players benefit the most from playing at home.
