OVERTIME: Tony, Romona and Mark preview Game 3 of the NBA Finals

OVERTIME: Tony, Romona and Mark preview Game 3 of the NBA Finals

With Cleveland down 2-0 to Golden State in the NBA Finals, James knows better than anyone that he and the Cavaliers are facing a must-win situation in Game 3 on Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena.

Game three of the National Basketball Association finals will take place tonight between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world can hit those but him".

The Cavs did everything we thought they needed to do and yet, still, it wasn't enough. "Two guys that I think are a head above everybody else that's ever played the game".

"Some Warriors believe it was a unsafe play by Perkins.the fear was Curry could have sprained an ankle or suffered a knee injury", Haynes writes. He finished with a playoff career-high 43 points to go with 13 rebounds and seven assists, including hitting 6-of-9 3-pointers.

With so much traffic going on near the arena, the Cavaliers organization is recommending that anyone coming down to enjoy the game or Cavs Fan Fest arrive earlier than they'd expect to accommodate traffic.

In last year's Finals, the Warriors came to Cleveland with a 2-0 lead, but found themselves trailing the Cavaliers in the dying minutes. This is the third time Durant and James have faced off in the Finals, each earning 4-1 series wins over the other. Kerr isn't sure how many minutes Iguodala will be called upon to play. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined to shoot 3-for-15 in the first half.

Iguodala had averaged 11.4 points in his 18 previous Finals games - including a 20-point showing for Golden State in last year's title clincher against Cleveland.

But the Warriors have too many late-game options to falter. Many people have been saying that another NBA Finals loss will hurt the legacy of Lebron and he may not be able to surpass Michael Jordan as the greatest of all time in the NBA. "He's an assassin. That was one of those assassin plays right there".

James had 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds for Cleveland, but his Cavaliers will have to become the first team to climb out of a 3-0 hole in the NBA Finals.

James is averaging 40.0 points, 10.5 assists and 8.5 rebounds per game in the Finals.

LeBron James needs to have a 30-point triple-double.

But, like many others, the Oakland Raiders tight end believes that tonight's game - the first one this series in Cleveland - is critical.

The Cavs kept the game close through most of the fourth quarter.

It also helped that Andre Iguodala made his return to the court after missing the past six games.

There really shouldn't be any argument as to who is the best player for Golden State.

And then with two-and-half minutes to go in the game, he finally broke through. Cleveland is expected to put Rodney Hood back into the rotation despite his postseason 15 percent shooting from downtown.
