Ranking LeBron James’ best landing spots for the Boston Celtics

  • Will Stephen Curry Be Named NBA Finals MVP after Making History?

Curry was coming off a Game 2 in which he hit a Finals-record nine 3-pointers en route to 33 points.

In new footage, LeBron James' reaction to his team's late-game gaffe is revealed - and it's less than favorable. They can knock the Warriors around below the rim, frustrating shooters and making the pretty look ugly. James was yelling at Smith as he continued to dribble and then appeared to say, "I thought we were up".

Smith spent Friday in his hotel room for the most part, watching the Memorial ("Tiger played really well", Smith said), talking with Kyle Korver and visiting with his kids over FaceTime.

James looked absolutely unstoppable in a 51-point performance in game one, as he was almost flawless driving to the basket and dropping bombs from three-point range, but Sunday he passed up several open looks from deep early and only had two shots nine minutes into the game. Kevin Durant was my answer.

When you look past the flash of Golden State's fourth quarter on Sunday, the one in which Curry seemed unable to miss, this has been a very close series. I think that's important.

Just two years ago, Golden State were in the same position: up 2-0 in the finals after crushing victories over the Cavs. Cleveland came back from a 3-1 deficit to stun the Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals, but that was when Durant was still playing for Oklahoma City.

The 30-year-old is averaging 31 points over the first two games of the series and could finally be in line to land the Finals MVP award that eluded him when the Warriors won the title in 2015 and 2017.

LeBron James and Stephen Curry might have opposing goals this week in Cleveland, but they agree on one thing.

Durant had 24 points and eight rebounds in the first half while the Warriors' other four starters made a combined 5-of-20 from the floor for only 13 first-half points and Cleveland enjoyed a 28-16 first-half rebounding edge.

Cleveland does have to be better, but they have been at home in the postseason. They play best when they are doubted.

The clip shows the Cavaliers in the time between J.R. Smith's baffling blunder at the end of regulation and the start of overtime, depicting the team's bench as heartbroken and stunned as they realize their opportunity to steal Game 1 had likely slipped away.

'(The Warriors) took care of their home court.

Many saw how distraught LeBron was during the play, noticing J.R.'s mistake before he did, but was unable to do anything about it. "We know it's going to be tough to hear one another, but we've got to be better with that".

After each game the play of the Cavs tends to be about how well LeBron James played and what do the "rest" of the team did to help.
