Now Iguodala had gotten LeBron.
While James was literally consistent in the past three games, averaging a terrific triple-double of 32 points, 12 rebounds and 10.3 assists per game entering Game 3, that can not be said of Irving and Love. "And I think when you get guys playing 45, 44 minutes, basically attacking one-on-one the whole game, it's - you hope eventually it's going to take its toll".
For Iguodala, there had to be some sense of redemption, right? I played against some great teams, but I don't think no team has had this type of firepower. But I was a track guy. In fact, in some respects, I agree with those who now might think that LeBron, not MJ, is the greatest player ever.
Less than 12 hours after their brutal Game 3 loss, the Cavs showed up to practice at Quicken Loans Arena where it felt like the assembled media was attending a wake for the defending champs. Both Green and head coach Steve Kerr noted that James would, and was, beginning to wear down late in the game. You look at the wrong way is what they scoreless in 33 minutes against him below Richard Jefferson will credit at his age 37. Any hint of a foul, and LeBron would be at the line with a chance to tie the game. Love missed after that.
James has been prolific in reaching the finals, the only man to get two teams there 4 times, but has struggled to hoist the trophies.
But James passed Jordan last month to become the all-time NBA playoffs scoring leader and enters Friday only one point behind Jordan for third on the all-time NBA Finals scoring list with 1,175. Iguodala says the kicking of legs on jump shots happens quite frequently, and he believes it's much ado about nothing.
"We're confident in him taking that shot every time."It was mentioned that James is unlikely joining the Golden State Warriors due to the rivalry he has with them. We can talk about how the sides really haven't looked even between the Warriors from the time the Warriors signed Durant.
If James joined forces with George, Brandon Ingram and, say, Lonzo Ball, the type of long, athletic and young core needed to take down the Golden State Warriors dynasty could be constructed. We got to this point playing our way. Game 3 of the NBA Finals felt like one because of the way it ended, the fast-furious run of 11 points after J.R.'s three. I don't know that there's a more streaky player if CN BA cares that to pull him out there.
Pace was a major topic of conversation during the off-day press conferences Tuesday at Quicken Loans Arena, where the Cavs host Game Three on Wednesday night. We will find out if LeBron and Irving and the Cavs can rouse themselves and at least send the thing back to Oakland. As one of the greatest teams in National Basketball Association history by most metrics, these Warriors.
