24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
In a must-win situation in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, the Cavs did the best thing they could possibly do: blew out the Warriors at home, showing the world that they are still capable of winning this series.
With the Cleveland crowd hyped up, the Cavs, led by Kyrie Irving came out on firing. Uncle Drew had 16 first quarter points and the Warriors looked like they had the worst first start of their season.
After a more quiet than usual Game 2 performance, LeBron James got back to beasting, scoring 32 points to go with 11 rebounds and 6 assists. The Cavs defense frustrated Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, holding the Warriors big three to just 35 points on 12-for-34 shooting from the field.
Irving and James combined for 62 points, 15 rebounds and 14 assists, JR Smith added 20 big points and the Cavs blew out the Warriors 120-90.
