Mood swing: LeBron, Cavs home looking to turn around Finals

Will Stephen Curry Be Named NBA Finals MVP after Making History?

KD once again showed why he's the difference maker for the Warriors as he poured in a playoff career-high 43 points and carried the load as fellow superstar Steph Curry had a miserable shooting night.

James has now registered at least 25 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists in each of his pst 10 Finals games.

Now Cleveland could be down to one final game with James. "I didn't want to run there and shoot a bad shot, fall on the ground and they got numbers going the other way so I made a decision to pull up".

James led the Cavaliers with 33 points.

For a Toronto-based sports writer, it is an odd feeling to come to Cleveland and see the home team as heavy underdogs.

After a record nine three-pointers in a Finals match from Curry, James urged the Cavs to remember they can only control what they do on the court. Not only does LeBron have the ideal physique for professional sports, but he has been the "Chosen One" since he was about 14 years old.

With JaVale McGee getting three point-blank shots at the rim, the Warriors opened the third quarter with a 9-3 spurt and it wasn't long before they took their first lead on Curry's two free throws.

Green screamed and whined to the bench saying he didn't foul James, and even went as far as to call him a "f***ing p***y".

From the outset of Game 3, these indeed looked like different Cavaliers.

The 15-year veteran also passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for sole possession of the fourth-most playoff games played in National Basketball Association history.

As coach Tyronn Lue had hoped, Cleveland was more physical and won several 50-50 balls while outrebounding and outworking the Warriors, who spent much of the first half barking about the officiating. "LeBron James, I guess", he said with a laugh. Midway through Game 1, James was hit in the face thanks to Draymond Green's rake of his face.

By the time the first half ended with Cleveland up by six, the Warriors had chipped away at big Cavaliers leads twice, thanks mostly to Durant, who had 24 points in the half. The Warriors are trying to join a select list of teams to win three championships in four years.

The Quicken Loans Arena crowd got decidedly nervous, and it was tough to blame them.
