Golden State one win from title

Golden State one win from title

LeBron James hailed the Golden State Warriors' unrivalled "firepower" after his Cleveland Cavaliers side fell to a 118-113 loss in game three of the NBA Finals. We'll get him out, get him right back in.

No rest for The King: Cleveland can't afford to rest LeBron James.

No team in National Basketball Association history has overcome a 3-0 deficit in The Finals.

Now Cleveland, which previous year became the first team to recover from a 3-1 Finals deficit, faces historically long odds again.

Yet LeBron apparently isn't concerned about fatigue, KD's scoring prowess or anything else entering Wednesday night's virtual must-win Game 3 at Quicken Loans Arena. "All I was looking at was the bottom of the net", Durant said. "I can't be disappointed with the effort and how we played, but they made the plays down the stretch that we didn't execute defensively or offensively, and they took advantage of it".

Out-of-nowhere Ostapenko to play for French Open title
Simona Halep battled past Karolina Pliskova to set a final clash with Jelena Ostapenko at Roland Garros . I won the first set and was very close to making the final and some thoughts were in my mind.

At some point, the Warriors are going to go on a 10-0, or 12-0, or 15-0 run, as they do every game.

James had 39 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, but his attempt at a tying 3-pointer was blocked by Andre Iguodala and James stepped out of bounds after recovering it, slamming the ball to the court in frustration. Win this game, and suddenly it's a series they know they can win.

Splash brothers Thompson and Stephen Curry totaled for 11 of the Warriors 16 threes on the night with Thompson having the hot hand early, erupting for 16 points in the opening period before finishing the game with 30 points.

Durant then followed a Kyle Korver 3-pointer miss for Cleveland with a tension-packed 3-pointer with 45 seconds remaining that put the Warriors ahead 114-113.

The Cleveland Cavaliers came into the third game of the NBA Finals in a dispiriting but familiar position after two Golden State blowouts. "I mean, just hits an unbelievable game victor, just comes down in transition, that only Kevin Durant can hit".

Trump Weighs In On Gulf Diplomatic Rift
President Trump is eager to show progress against the Islamic State and Iran - and likely does not want to impede the arms sale. But on Tuesday morning, Trump applauded Qatar's neighbours and even took partial credit for their assertiveness.

Cleveland had looked like they might prevail during Wednesday's game when they led by six points with three minutes to play, but Kevin Durant led the Warriors on an impressive 11-0 run to close out the game.

Good to hear from you all after The King went scoreless for the final four minutes of Game 3, by the way, LeBron haters.

"If we win the championship, I'm like 99 percent sure we don't get him", Green told ESPN's Zach Lowe. Point guard Kyrie Irving has gotten his points and little else.

The Warriors entered the game mindful of what had happened against the Cavaliers in Game 3 of the finals last season. Curry, victor of the last two MVP awards, is fully healthy after struggling through last year's Finals. The only game the 76ers lost in their 1983 championship run was to the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals.
