NBA offseason might start earlier than usual this year

NBA offseason might start earlier than usual this year

As it turns out, James has been enduring a serious bone contusion after punching a whiteboard after Game 1 of the NBA Finals. To go with his prodigious point total, he is averaging 10.7 assists and 9 rebounds a game.

And they may stay that way.

"It's an unbelievable feeling to come here with a mission and get the job done", Curry said.

No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series.

Join us for live news and analysis from Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday at 6 Cleveland, where the Warriors have a chance to win their third NBA championship in four years.

For the second straight year against the Cavaliers, Kevin Durant took, and made, that shot. James still shot 49% from the field over the last three games, but just 27% on three-point attempts with fewer than four attempts per game.

Only Bill Russell's Boston Celtics, the "Showtime" Lakers and the Los Angeles squad led by Kobe and Shaq, and Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls have been as dominant in such a short period of time.

In a game in which Durant was forced to shoulder much of the scoring load because his teammates couldn't shoot, and LeBron James was his usual self but got major contributions from the guys who had done very little in Oakland, it was the Golden State Warriors who outlasted the Cleveland Cavaliers by a 110-102 score.

LeBron had an MRI after Game 1, but the hand was too swollen for definitive results.

For the Cavaliers, it was a carbon copy of a gut punch after they led by as many as 13 points early. He plopped down in a chair and draped a towel over his broad shoulders, looking like a boxer on a corner stool.

Curry (30), Durant (29), Thompson (28) and Green (28) are still young enough to keep the window open for several more years.

Heading into the playoffs, the Warriors appeared vulnerable.

Klay Thompson, who did not score in the first half, scored 10 points to lead Golden State to an 86-65 lead after three quarters.

"The main difference is the our regular season defense was odd".

James then went on to list what makes the Warriors great. Even with being, arguably, the greatest player in National Basketball Association history, James can't defeat the mighty force of the Golden State Warriors alone.

That set up another reunion with James and the Cavs.

While James' Game 3 outfit was colorful, Warriors guard Stephen Curry took a simple approach, with a denim jacket, white T-shirt and slim jeans. Cleveland proceeded to blowout Golden State in that game.

Entering the final three minutes of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Steph Curry had four points on 1-for-14 shooting.

What channel is the 2018 NBA Finals on?

Love was second on the Cavs with 20 points, adding 13 rebounds. ABC is broadcasting all of the games in the 2018 NBA Finals.
