LeBron's Game 3 dunk sets social media on fire

LeBron's Game 3 dunk sets social media on fire

After posting a 26-9-7 (points-rebounds-assists) night in Game 2, Durant saved his best for the Golden State Warriors' road trip in Game 3, tallying a playoff record high 43 points to go with 13 rebounds and 7 assists. For James, this is not uncharted territory being the underdog. Steve Kerr called Durant the ultimate luxury earlier in this postseason. "They always shoot better at home, so you've got to expect that".

LeBron James is on. To put that into perspective, Curry has drilled 56 three's so far this postseason, despite sitting out the Warriors' first six playoff games (he's appeared in 13 games).

"It's nice when we're both going and have the opportunity to play off each other".

James is averaging an incredible 40.0 points, 10.5 assists, and 8.5 rebounds on 55.8 percent shooting from the field and 45.4 percent shooting from long range. That's what the Warriors brought in Durant to do, for games like this when their other stars struggle - and that's exactly what he has delivered.

"As a fan of the National Basketball Association, you could go down the list of the teams that won multiple years and just dominated the league for stretches of time", Curry said.

But the Warriors grabbed their first lead of the game during a 17-6 run to start the third quarter, setting the stage for a tense finish to a game that saw 11 lead changes.

Well, while LeBron James and his hometown team are now down 2-0 to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, Brown believes there's still hope for the Cavs.

The Cavs did everything we thought they needed to do and yet, still, it wasn't enough. This trade would be great for the Mavs going forward and may be a good step towards helping Cleveland get over the Golden State hump. The Warriors felt it was a unsafe play.

In the Eastern Conference Finals, James surpassed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the all-time field goals playoff record. The victory has the Warriors up 3-0 in the series, a deficit no team has ever come back from in the NBA Finals. He logged another triple-double with 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, and Dwyane Wade combined have 58 career games like that. "That's the biggest thing", Kerr said while speaking to reporters on June 5 before the Warriors practiced at The Q.

And when James did get his first bucket. James was shown asking Lue if the team had any timeouts and then reacting as if he had been punched in the stomach when he learned the Cavs could have stopped the clock. J.R. Smith needs people to forget about his Game 1 fiasco, and the arena will have a desperate feel.

A glaring omission from that short list is of course, Durant's Finals opponent this year LeBron James.
