We have reason to believe the Cleveland Cavaliers have broken LeBron James.

The Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers duke it out in a pivotal Game 3 of the NBA Finals at the Quicken Loans Arena on Thursday night.

Cleveland pushed Golden State to the wire in a memorable Game 1 that went to overtime before getting blown out in Game 2. "We would have won the series in five if Iggy played", Kerr said, per Reuters.

The negative is that it will be very challenging for Boston to make it to the NBA Finals with LeBron on the opposing team year in and year out.

The Cavaliers are 8-1 at home in this year's playoffs, losing only in their first-round opener against Indiana.

"We feel like we feed off our crowd", Love said on Sunday night. Korver and the plays used to get him open could exhaust Klay's legs, especially with an already injured ankle. Regardless, the Cavs need to be better at embracing the man-to-man challenge and, as part of it, fighting through Golden State's assortment of *illegal* screens. "I thought I had a layup at first, and I fumbled the ball and tried to see where the defense was".

If you weren't watching, you missed one of the most infamous moments in NBA Finals history.

"I think I only got exhausted once tonight", James said. "We have to have our head on a swivel for the entire 24 seconds and give maximum effort". "Just because we're going home doesn't mean we can relax".

For Cleveland to have a fighting chance in Games 3 and 4, they must go back to what has worked for them, playing Kyle Korver.

The Warriors are a great offensive machine but the Cavs are the more rugged defensive team.

"You definitely notice the looks on their faces when he hit some of the shots", Warriors forward Draymond Green said of the Cavaliers. But they will need more than a different vibe to keep Curry from adding a Finals MVP to his resume.

Curry, who already owns National Basketball Association 3-pointer records for a season and consecutive games among others, delivered deflating blows time and again to the Cavaliers.

"To be on top of that three-point list is pretty special", Curry said. "It just gave us all the momentum back".

Curry scored 33 points and a flurry of successful shots from beyond the arc in the second half helped the Warriors maintain the significant lead they had built early in the game.

Down 0-2, Lue has to figure out something to do differently.

James immediately began arguing for a foul, Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue was assessed a technical foul for arguing the call and the Warriors outscored the Cavs 9-7 the rest of the quarter to carry a 90-80 lead into the fourth. But there were too many simple breakdowns for the Cavs to be competitive in this game.
