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.

It's a hard enough spot for the Cavaliers to deal with Curry, particularly when he is coming off an NBA Finals-record nine 3-pointers in Game 2.

They lead the final series 3-0, and no side in history have come back from such a deficit.

"It was like deja vu watching him hit that shot again", Cavs forward Kevin Love said. "Tomorrow I'll replay some plays and some moments and things of that nature".

"Some Warriors believe it was a risky play by Perkins.the fear was Curry could have sprained an ankle or suffered a knee injury", Haynes writes.

The Cavs led 14-4 with 7:57 left in the first quarter, a complete flip from Game 2 when the Warriors jumped to a 15-6 lead with 8:12 left in the first quarter.

J.R. Smith inexplicably held onto the ball with only a few seconds left, after grabbing an offensive rebound in a tied Game 1, resulting in overtime, where the Cleveland Cavaliers ran out of gas.

The Warriors have a 3-0 lead for the second straight year. JaVale McGee scored on a series of lay-ups, Curry started to find his shot and Durant kept pouring in bucket after bucket.

Iguodala, the 2015 finals MVP, scored eight points and made one steal in 22 minutes, but his impact went beyond those numbers. Curry's backcourt partner Klay Thompson was just as chilly.

Golden State also hopes to get Andre Iguodala, its preferred LeBron defender, back for Game 3 or 4, per ESPN's Chris Haynes.

Keep in mind, the Cleveland Indians game will be wrapping up as many Cavs fans head downtown.

Then, as they often do, the Warriors exploded in the third quarter, using a quick 9-3 spurt after the break to level the score and taking off from there.

The feat gets even more impressive when you move further down the list and realize Manu Ginobili needed 218 games to hit 324 threes, and Reggie Miller, considered to be possibly the greatest shooter of all-time, accumulated 320 three-pointers in 144 games. "He's one of the smartest players in the league".

Although the Golden State Warriors trailed by six points at halftime, they had yet another stellar third quarter, outscoring the Cleveland Cavaliers 31-23 before continuing their strong play into the fourth quarter, where they closed strong with a 27-21 advantage, winning 110-102. "We just have to come out Friday night and not give in".

James arrived at 6 p.m. dressed more casually - camouflage trousers, purple hoodie, "Billionaire Boys Club" baseball cap - than on the road where he and the Cavs have been wearing suits during the postseason.

LeBron James gets another NBA Finals triple-double. The veteran swingman has missed six games since then.

"This is the beauty of this team and the luxury that we have of having multiple big-time scorers", Kerr said. Hood was averaging 16.8 points when he was acquired by Cleveland at the deadline, a scoring average only LeBron is clearing for the Cavs this postseason.
