LeBron James should be crowned 2017-18 NBA Finals MVP

Overall, it was an uncharacteristic performance from the Warriors who resorted to isolation basketball in the second half, but it paid off as Durant was simply clutch when it mattered. The environment is incredible.

Curry also addressed the Durant luxury specifically: "He helps the situation, but we don't walk on the floor like, 'Oh, there is K.D. We're good.' We still have to play and play hard and play well".

The Warriors, facing in LeBron James the man widely considered the best player alive, transformed from upstart to elite. That means LeBron James is potentially one game away from the end of his Cleveland Cavaliers career.

Kevin Durant earned seven of the 11 votes from chosen media members to win his second straight Finals MVP, while Curry received the other four. 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.

A majority of Curry's 37 points came from outside the 3-point arc. He splashed in 22 triples in the series.

Thanks to a road win...free tacos for all!
Even if Golden State wins on the road in Game 4, the deal will still be for one free taco per person on the 13th. Taco Bell will make good on the promotion between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on June 13 at locations across the U.S.

Now, as James said Thursday, "everyone is trying to figure out" how to assemble a team to knock off a dynasty.

It's a fascinating situation, because obviously, James is the kind of player who can impact the championship hopes of multiple teams by going somewhere.

"I'm not sure LeBron knows what's going to do with this one".

Then Green rattled through the list of injuries that took their toll over the regular season: Curry (ankle), Durant (ribs) and Thompson (fractured thumb) all missed significant time and ensured that their regular season never took full flight.

"Does it matter? Does it? Does it?" Durant said. "We won two championships". It's just that the talent we have, and the experience we've gained.

The Cavaliers shouldn't even be thinking about the Larry O'Brien trophy right now. The way he approaches things, the way he wants his legacy to be ... coming to a franchise that hasn't done anything as of late.

Durant, LeBron James (2016) and Andre Iguodala (2015) are the three recipients of the honor in the past four years.

James got a somewhat modest ovation from the Quicken Loans Arena crowd when he exited the game for the final time. Cleveland proceeded to blowout Golden State in that game.

Should he be honoured with the award, he would become the first person to win the Finals MVP award on a losing team since Jerry West in 1969.

Why the Cleveland Cavaliers Should Stop Switching Against the Golden State Warriors
If you weren't watching, you missed one of the most infamous moments in NBA Finals history. "It was big", Curry said . Game 2 wasn't any better for Cavs' fans, as the Golden State Warriors won 122-103 to take a 2-0 lead in the series.
