Cavaliers let chances slip away - again - in NBA Finals

"I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway", James, whose Cavaliers trail the best-of-seven NBA Finals 2-0, told reporters in Cleveland on Tuesday during an off-day of the NBA Finals.

Another chance was wasted, and the season is now just about over.

His presence on the court makes the Warriors so unsafe and while he's not in prime shape and probably won't be before this series ends Game 3 showed the value of having Iggy's level-headedness on the floor when things broke down for the Dubs.

LeBron James warned the Cleveland Cavaliers not to feel comfortable back in OH after falling 2-0 down to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

"It's definitely a tough loss and we had our chances", James said.

James ended up playing 47 out of 48 minutes in Game 3. He added 10 rebounds and 11 assists for a triple-double, his fourth of the playoffs.

Warriors star Kevin Durant is ready for craziness.

James has hit the 30-point mark 110 times out of the 238 career playoff games he has suited up.

"It will be nice when we can just get back to normal in three years", Kerr said.

Cleveland outrebounded Golden State 28-16 in the first half - including grabbing an absurd 10 offensive rebounds. But third quarters have kind of been our Achilles heel all year. "So I would upgrade him to questionable".

Regular-season series: Warriors took both regular-season meetings against a completely different Cleveland team that featured Dwyane Wade, Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder. But these first two games in Oakland have proven that's what it will take for Cleveland to win a game in this series, let alone four of them.

They were asking for trouble.

"That was awesome what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. We're all looking forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration and celebrate Americans for their achievement. That's what this team does.

The Warriors promptly erased that six-point deficit when the second half opened, tying the game after less than two minutes of game time.

How do the Cavaliers reckon with the fact that they are down 3-0 against a team that can martial so many ways of beating you, a team that is clearly superior to theirs?

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry walks past fans after Game 2.

As his teammate Love put it: "That margin for error is so thin and so little against them that in some cases, you nearly have to be flawless". The Warriors went 12 for 13 from the line.

James can be a free agent, and there's a real sense around the National Basketball Association that this summer - just like in 2010, when he left for Miami - could be packing up and leaving his native northeast OH once again.

Game 2 of the NBA Finals did not offer has many obvious breakdowns as the first game.

This edition of the NBA Finals continues to churn out quality memes of jaw-dropping (J.R. Smith) and tense moments. There's no guarantee that Cleveland would have scored to win the game in those final seconds if Smith had done anything differently.

"I don't really get caught up in that", James said. "I feel great about tomorrow, the opportunity we have". I'll wake up Friday morning, I'll be locked in on the game plan and what needs to be done to help our team win.
