LeBron James ditches suit, rocks outfit with purple Nikes to Game 3

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala has been upgraded to "questionable" for game three of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers. But especially when you play Cleveland - LeBron, this crowd and their environment, we know the kind of force they're going to bring. "I started asking for more of them, and I was able to knock down some shots for us". Game 3 of this series will probably be remembered by how the Cavaliers, even with Curry missing 13 of his first 14 shots, dominated stretches of the first half and went into the locker room only up by six.

Durant said the similarity with last year's shot - a moment that helped define his first championship - didn't occur to him. The Cavaliers rolled the dice and put Rodney Hood into the series, and got 15 points from him.

Cleveland got another excellent game from Kevin Love who scored 20 points to go along with 13 rebounds and three assists. Stephen Curry drained nine treys on his way to 33 points with seven rebounds and eight assists, Kevin Durant bounced back from a rough shooting night in Game 1 to finish with 26 points and seven assists on 10 of 14 shooting while Draymond Green chipped in with five points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

No other Warriors player scored over 11 points. On a night when Curry and Klay Thompson combined to shoot 7-of-27, Durant kept the Warriors in the game.

Durant has made quite a career out of rising to the occasion.

James led the Cavaliers with 33 points.

Draymond Green and Joel Embiid get into a slight skirmish as Embiid takes exception to a potential Draymond groin shot on a drive to the basket. The Sixers shot only 38 percent for the quarter, while Golden State heated up, hitting over 50 percent of their shots.

Head to head, the over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings and the Warriors are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

"This game was like deja vu of game three past year for him just all the way around", said Golden State's Draymond Green.

"Yeah, I actually said the wrong thing", Green said. But that was a huge shot. "I just took the shot". "But at the same time I knew the game wasn't over". "Like it was just high emotion".

"We've got to take care of home", he said. That's rare in the National Basketball Association because we're all professionals. But I think having guys that get so excited about a good play, a good block or a good rotation or a good shot or dagger shot. He didn't think his shot was the biggest of the game. The Cavaliers also are getting a strong performance from J.R. Smith, with 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting.

As in, it's the only game the Cavaliers have won a couple of times. Cleveland came back from a 3-1 deficit to stun the Warriors in the 2016 finals, but that was when Durant was in Oklahoma City and James had a different supporting cast. "He's an assassin. That was one of those assassin plays right there".

A Cavaliers fan flies his favorite team's colors proudly from his apartment balcony in San Francisco before Game 3 of the NBA Finals. The game. The season. "I mean, different feel". "Just a different vibe around the team". "I don't want to downplay anything, but I don't want to act like this the end of the road".

Durant scored 24 in the first half, when the Warriors attempted 13 free throws to zero for the Cavs, a disparity that induced further wrath on the officials from Cleveland fans still stinging from the now infamous reversed call in Game 1. "That's something I can't control". Golden State, trying to win the Larry O'Brien Trophy for the third time in four years, leads the best-of-seven series, 3-0.

And his presence continues to be the difference-maker.
