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

It's a hard enough spot for the Cavaliers to deal with Curry, particularly when he is coming off an NBA Finals-record nine 3-pointers in Game 2.

The Cavaliers and Warriors are meeting for the fourth consecutive NBA Finals, with Golden State having won titles in 2015 and 2017 while Cleveland captured the 2016 crown, rallying from a 3-1 deficit in the greatest comeback in finals history.

"It was like deja vu watching him hit that shot again", Cavs forward Kevin Love said. He scored 20 points on 6-of-13 shooting from the field, including a 3-of-7 night from beyond the arc, even demanding double-teams from Golden State. I don't want to take that for granted; don't get me wrong.

It came on a night when no other Warriors player got it going offensively. He had a career playoff-high 43 points on 15-of-23 shooting, including 6-of-9 from three-point range. There was an awkward moment at the start of Lue's pregame news conference when he was asked by a foreign reporter who he expected to be the key player in Game 3. The Warriors, who saw Durant add 13 rebounds and seven assists, can complete the series sweep Friday.

May tells Trump that U.S. tariffs on European Union steel are unjustified
The move follows a US decision to impose tariffs on imports of Mexican steel and aluminum purchases, which took effect on Friday. Trump suggested last week that NAFTA could be replaced with two separate trade accords , one with Mexico and another with Canada.

He can only hope the friendly confines of Quicken Loans Arena will be the safe haven it's been for the Cavs throughout this postseason.

The Warriors usually strike like a cobra - a swift and powerful third-quarter bite, leaving their opponent paralyzed and foaming at the mouth. They only had to reckon with Golden State's most deadly 12 minutes.

Curry and his fellow Splash Bro, Klay Thompson, are now tied for the most three-pointers made in a single postseason at 98, a record that will likely stand for a very long time (unless one of the two breaks it themselves).

Iguodala missed the rest of that series as well as Golden State's victories over the Cavs in games one and two of the Finals.

Melania Trump makes appearance after 24 days out of sight
Trump had not been seen in public since May 10, when she and the president welcomed home three Americans freed from North Korea. The President also talked about the strong economy during the event, the person inside the room said.

Durant's heroics weren't limited to one play, either.

If Games 1 and 2 are any indication, then Curry will be hoisting the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP Award for the very first time before too long. But oddsmakers aren't ruling out Kevin Durant (plus-275; 26 points and nine rebounds per game) or James (plus-375; 40 points, 10.5 assists, 8.5 boards). So we've got to continue to just grind and defend as we did tonight.

The Cavs' big man, who has been targeted defensively by the Warriors over the course of the rivalry, was relentless in the first half.

Between James' groove and the spark of Cleveland's home crowd, there are enough reasons to think the Cavs can keep this close throughout the contest.

Steve Kerr throws shade at LeBron James during Game 2 press conference
So much for these NBA Finals being a mutual admiration society affair between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers . Despite the injury, Thompson would log 45 minutes and produce 24 points on 50 percent shooting in Golden State's 124-114 OT win.

He also wanted his team to be more physical than they were in the two games played on Golden State's floor to start the series. Hood was averaging 16.8 points when he was acquired by Cleveland at the deadline, a scoring average only LeBron is clearing for the Cavs this postseason.
