Warriors lead Cavs heading into 4th quarter

Share

Kevin Durant shot 10-14 from the field. In 18 minutes, he scored 12 points on a flawless 6-for-6 shooting (five dunks and a nifty hook shot from eight feet), without turning the ball over. He scored 29 points, collected nine rebounds and dished out 13 assists.

Curry's tally is now up to 370 3-pointers, surpassing James' 369.

James, who has played in some 1,400 National Basketball Association games, called Thursday's loss one his "toughest" ever when, after some questionable calls by referees, point guard George Hill then missed a free throw with less than five seconds left (which would have given the Cavs the lead). DEVELOPING: This story will be updated. James is working twice as hard, playing 48 minutes in each of the previous two games.

Golden State Warriors' guard Klay Thompson is confident his ankle sprain won't keep him out of action.

Kevin Durant came into Sunday night having shot better than 50 percent from the floor in only one of his past six games.

With the Cavs lacking any clear strength outside of James, Love, and Thompson, Stephen Curry will hurt Cleveland with his speed and skill.

LeBron James is appearing in his 237th postseason game, tying Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for fourth place on the career list.

Golden State center JaVale McGee kept rolling to the basket, catching a pass and dunking.

After an overtime opener loss James called one of the worst defeats of his career, the Cavaliers couldn't play Golden State as close, with Curry and his teammates thwarting every threat.

The Warriors made the announcement less than an hour before Sunday's game.

And now, it's the fourth straight NBA Finals for Carlos Santana.

"The game's over. There's nothing we can do about it", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said.

Maybe you watch that and want to blame LeBron for failing to contest Curry's shot.

We'll see what the Cavs have left.

LeBron James says the Warriors are pretty with Iguodala, and pretty good without him. They're good. They're great, actually.

Green was important during Cleveland's series against the Toronto Raptors, and vital to their Game 7 win over the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. "I'm not for sure, but I might have".
