LeBron James admits he's 'drained,' both mentally and physically

And I try to do the same things. He's played in all but 19 minutes of the first three games, and every time James leaves the court, Golden State begins to romp. "I think we're moving the ball great, we're shooting the ball at a high clip and our defense has been unbelievable".

Now let's talk about the 2017 NBA Finals.

"The game has evolved", Jefferson acknowledged. Can you imagine the Cavs going on that sort of run without LeBron? Golden State has scored 126 per game on almost 52 percent shooting over the last five games.

Durant's current team mates, however, call him unselfish when it comes to understanding how he can impact the game each night.

LeBron James shook off a knee-buckling blow to the chin while scoring 39 and Kyrie Irving added 38 for the Cavs, who took a 113-107 lead with 3:09 left on J.R. Smith's 3-pointer.

"If I could have the play over again, I would come off a three-screen situation", James said. "And then I guarded (Kendrick) Perkins".

"I thought fatigue was an issue because the game was so hard-fought".

Amid that craziness he has found his niche. "I'm averaging a triple-double in the finals", he says, "I'm pretty good".

It's unbelievable that an essentially unselfish player could be the top playoff scorer in National Basketball Association history, and still performing at his very best.

The cap spike undercut the Wizards' financial advantage, and it weakened them right at the time when they needed to flex their muscle. More importantly for the purposes of today's National Basketball Association, there's no team even remotely close when it comes to the combination of star power and championship chemistry.

"Game 3 has been rough for us historically, and especially in this building", Curry said. It turned out to be the shot of the game, and probably the series, as the Warriors prevailed, 118-113.

Andre Iguodala reflects on being named MVP of The 2015 Finals. "If we bring our A game and play smart enough, we'll do it".

And anyone writing off Cleveland at this point has already forgotten what LeBron James and the Cavs were able to accomplish last season. But in the Finals, the Cavs are running like gangbusters, with the first two games averaging 105.5 possessions. But he has maximized that. They then went 15-9 in the playoffs, and their 88-18 total-season record wound up fourth-best in league history coming into this season.

"Now that you can look ahead to Friday, all our focus is on that".

"You saw the gold rush for Steph". It's just insane. He's hard to explain. But now that is what every 6-10 guy wants to be like. "They're trying to be like that, but that is gifts".

The newest set of gifts were those being explored by Durant - the near-7-foot athlete with the shooting touch of Nowitzki and the ball-handling of a guard - with the result that another change in perspective was taking place. That gave the Warriors a lead they held the rest of the way.

David West left the Spurs last summer to pursue a title run with the Warriors. All very nice players that would make the Celtics better.

"It is about the journey", West was saying on the eve of Game 3. The Warriors had no one to contest Tristan Thompson on the boards, and his defensive versatility made him not only valuable, but a totally essential and indispensable piece for the Cavs' championship formula. He was now experiencing his first NBA Finals, and it was living up to all of his dreams and expectations. He was two wins away from his first championship. "You can tell, he knows this is his moment". "I was just telling these guys over here that I am 36". Don't forget, the Warriors didn't even have max cap space when they met with Durant.

"With KD, you just see the supernatural". "You don't want to mess around". The top two on each squad - James and Irving vs. Durant and Curry - are comparable. They had an 8-2 stretch to finish the second.
