LeBron, Cavaliers Respond in Game 3, Win 120-90
The Cleveland Cavaliers took two devastating losses to the Golden State Warriors in the first two games of the 2016 NBA finals at Oracle Arena. Plagued by inconsistent shooting, an inability to take care of the basketball, an unwillingness to go big against a smaller Golden State team, and a.... starting shooting guard creating a kickstarter page for a reality television show?... (Stephen A. Smith LOVES the idea), the Cavs were stomped 214-182 to go down 0-2 in a series many NBA fans are claiming is the most important of LeBron James' career. Enter LBJ.
32 points on 14 of 26 shooting. 11 rebounds. 6 assists. King James and the Cavaliers put up a 33-16 first quarter and hardly looked back, leading by at least 8 for the duration of the game. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson continued their oddly quiet play thus far, combining for just 29 total points in game 3. Kyrie Irving and J.R. Smith answered the critics by tallying 50 points from the backcourt. In a 'do or die' scenario, the billion-dollar Nike poster boy made the company slogan his reality. Will the Warriors and the league MVP respond in game 4? I'm just glad we have a series on our hands.
