Despite 0-3 deficit, LeBron James remains positive in NBA Finals

Despite 0-3 deficit, LeBron James remains positive in NBA Finals

At home, the Cavaliers shoot 37 percent from three (31 percent on the road) and they outscore opponents by 8 points per 100 (they get outscored by nearly that much on the road).

By scoring nine times from beyond the arc, the two-time MVP beat the record for most 3-pointers ever scored in a single game in the history of NBA Finals, which was set by Ray Allen in Game 2 of the 2010 Finals between the Celtics and the Lakers.

James electrified the joint just 2:24 into the game.

Going into Wednesday night's Game 3 of the NBA Finals, the Warriors had a 2-0 lead and plenty of momentum.

George Hill was the hottest Cav in the first half and that was due to James getting him the ball. "Pretty sure the way we handled things past year, kinda staying consistent with that". They come off a pick-and-roll and he just stopped behind and pulled four or five feet behind the 3-point line. "You know, nine 3s and seemed to hit the big shot every time we needed one".

James said: "You guys asked me this last year: 'What was the difference between the Warriors the previous year and this year?' His one-on-one ability really saved them again tonight".

James was poked in the right eye by Draymond Green of the Warriors during Game 1, and his eye is still disturbingly bloody, which led to plenty of Twitter users seeing red. "But Friday morning when I wake up, I'll be locked in and ready for Game 4". "Last two years, we were up 2-0".

As a result of four straight Finals matchups, both teams have little left to hide from one another.

Curry, a former two-time league Most Valuable Player, said he and his teammates would likely repeat the stance they took past year should they successfully defend their National Basketball Association title. "They know how hard it's going to be in Cleveland".

Trump, who has equated the protest with disrespect of flag and nation, said last September that any protesting "son of a bitch" should be fired and added recently "maybe you shouldn't be in the country".

On the other side of the coin, the Warriors did a lot of things terribly. "You can't have mistakes". They're going to be ready and fired up. What we do is we decide where are we going to attack? In order to win a championship a team has to step up and do something extraordinary. "We have an opportunity to come out and protect home".

We'll get into the "why" and "how" later, but first, the "what". 'I think we've done a great job of playing here throughout the course of the play-offs.

It's somewhat fascinating to see that response, and to see an awareness of how these press conferences have turned into a much larger element of the NBA Finals than they've been historically (a subject Bryan Curtis explored recently at The Ringer). Get that up near their playoff home court average of 37 percent and things look better.
