Mood swing: LeBron, Cavs home looking to turn around Finals

Adjust Comment Print

The Warriors are the 14th team to go up 3-0 in the Finals.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said the team understands the series will be a short one if they can not win in Cleveland. "We can play so much better". So it's going to be huge for us. His now-infamous blunder of running out the clock with the game tied instead of giving the Cleveland Cavaliers a chance to take the lead over the Golden State Warriors at the end of regulation in Game 1 is the story that won't quit.

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

"First year, it was 1-1", Kerr said. "Take it however you want it". Subscribe to our SMS sports service by texting "SPORTS" to 22840. LeBron, this crowd and their environment, we know the kind of force they're going to bring. James was yelling at Smith as he continued to dribble and then appeared to say, "I thought we were up". "We know it. We'll see if we can do it". Curry went 3-for-16 shooting for 11 points, but knocked down a couple shots late in the game when it mattered most. "We can't keep taking positives from losses".

Leroy Sane left out of Germany's 2018 World Cup squad
The 22-year-old will now go on holiday and will have a full pre-season ready for the defence of the Premier League title. Despite Sane's fine performances this season, Low has instead favoured Bayern Leverkusen's winger Julien Brandt.

JR Smith (13 points, three steals) was better than he was on the road but Kyle Korver (0/4 for 0 points) continues to be a non-factor and Jeff Green also only managed three points in 18 minutes.

LeBron James said before the start of the NBA Finals that the Cleveland Cavaliers will draw on their experience. It seems like I come up here and tell you guys this all the time, [but] the odds have been stacked up against me since I was an adolescent. "We have another opportunity on Friday to win on our home extend the series". What we do is we decide where are we going to attack? We should still be uncomfortable.

James landed badly going for a rebound early in the second quarter and limped on his right ankle, but the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player kept playing and helped keep the Cavaliers in contention in the second half.

"We all expect a lot out of each other", Love said.

China offered to spend $70 billion to avoid tariffs
The United States and Mexico do $600 billion in annual trade and about 16 percent of US goods exports go to its southern neighbor. According to Hernandez, tariffs will not result in a price spike in Mexico since the country has other markets to buy from.

James has always expressed his ability to trust his teammates and has constantly preached that the Cavs would be sitting at home if they did not play as a team.

Despite recording 26 points, six assists and nine rebounds in Game 1, and an ultra-efficient 26 points, seven assists and nine rebounds in Game 2, the reigning NBA Finals MVP had to cede the spotlight to LeBron James and Steph Curry. "I'm pretty sure, the way we handled things previous year, [we'll] stay consistent with that", Curry said later.

Lue wants more physical toughness and better communication on the defensive side, especially guarding Curry.

From the moment Kevin Durant signed with Golden State two summers ago, the debate over who is the Warriors' alpha dog has raged: Stephen Curry or Durant?
