Golden State Warriors' Iguodala a game-time decision for Game 3

Golden State Warriors' Iguodala a game-time decision for Game 3

The Cavaliers took a gamble by playing Hood - who had barely played against Boston in the Eastern Conference Finals or in their first two Finals games - in place of the cold-shooting Jordan Clarkson, and Hood, for the most part, paid dividends.

Iguodala missed the rest of that series as well as Golden State's victories in Games 1 and 2 of the NBA Finals.

Kevin Durant was nearly unstoppable in Game 3 - going 15-of-23 from the floor, including 6-of-9 from beyond the arc and a ideal 7-of-7 from the line, adding 13 boards, seven assists and a steal in the victory.

As Warriors backup point guard Shaun Livingston was walking to the locker room after the game, he yelled: "That's the way to take all the air out of the building".

Defending champion Golden State, powered by 43 points from Kevin Durant, moved to the brink of a third National Basketball Association title in four seasons on Wednesday by defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-102. "They've got a Finals MVP that comes off their bench", James said in reference to Iguodala. He made six three-pointers, including one that pierced Cleveland's remaining hope with 49.8 seconds left.

"Just for him, just as a person, to be healthy and be able to play in The Finals now that we're here, I think that would mean a lot to him and give us an emotional boost as well".

The pipeline company reported $0.17 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of $0.18 by $0.01. It increased, as 74 investors sold KMI shares while 305 reduced holdings. 108 funds opened positions while 266 raised stakes.

"Tonight, they're up three". You just knew that they wouldn't beat themselves.

"That margin for error is so little, so thin against them, I think in some cases you have to be ideal", Love said. He's an assassin, and that was one of those assassin plays right there.

The Cavs lost at home to the Golden State Warriors 110-102. On the other hand, if the Cavaliers are to make this an interesting series, James will have to further extend the best postseason of his career, or even get better, as ridiculous as it may sound. "But his one-on one ability really saved them again tonight". This not-so-stunning revelation comes three days after Stephen Curry donned his superstar cape in Game 2, started hitting shots from all over California and made gruff men laugh their bellies sore.

And after hitting that 3-pointer from 33 feet, Durant reacted by ... not reacting at all.

"It's a different game, different season", Durant said. "We've done a great job of playing here throughout the course of the play-offs". Curry finally buried a 3 and after James matched him with a long shot, Iguodala drove the lane for a thundering dunk. The previous 13 teams to do it went on to win the series. The last sweep in the Finals was San Antonio over Cleveland in 2007 in James' debut trip to the championship round.

This was why the Warriors needed Durant, and this is why Durant needed the Warriors. You can't have miscommunication, you can't have flaws, you can't have "my faults" or "my bads" or things like that, because they're going to make you pay.
