LeBron alley-oops slam dunk off backboard in NBA Finals

LeBron alley-oops slam dunk off backboard in NBA Finals

The Cleveland Cavaliers had several chances to lock up a win in the NBA Finals, but the team was not able to capitalize on those opportunities.

The Golden State Warriors can all but put this series to bed with another victory and taking a commanding 3-0 lead. "You know if you relax, they make you pay, and making you pay could cost you a game", James said. We're on our home floor. "We know it's going to be tough to hear one another, but we've got to be better with that". The King had also 10 rebounds and 11 assists, but the Cavs have fallen into a hole in which no team has ever emerged. Rodney Hood, who has had little impact during the 2018 NBA Playoffs, finished with 15 points.

As for the final period of Game 1 was full of controversy, from the reversed block/charge foul call involving LeBron James and Kevin Durant, the baffling dribbling out the clock by J.R. Smith at the end of regulation, and the melee surrounding the expulsion of Tristan Thompson in an overtime.

"We've been here before and that's the biggest thing", Kerr said. Kevin Love wreaked havoc in the first half, both rebounding and shooting the ball. But third quarters have kind of been our Achilles heel all year. "I think that's powerful, being in this situation".

But as it stands, James and the Cavs are two games away from elimination and, perhaps, two games away from his career in Cleveland ending.

They were asking for trouble. They missed five of those uncontested shots. That's what this team does. "They're not going to beat themselves". "This is a team you don't want to be down 0-3 against".

Cleveland had no answers for Curry on Sunday night and LeBron insisted his side should come to expect more of the same from the Warriors' point guard for the remainder of the series.

James was sensational in the two losses to Golden State on the road in Oakland but despite scoring 51 points in game one and having a near triple double in game two, he has mostly been a one-man army against the deep and talented Warriors squad.

"The margin of error is very low". He pointed out that Cleveland's players did a poor job of switching on screens to defend Curry and the Warriors' other shooters.

James can be a free agent, and there's a real sense around the National Basketball Association that this summer - just like in 2010, when he left for Miami - could be packing up and leaving his native northeast OH once again.

The NBA Finals resumes on Wednesday in Cleveland. The last sweep in the Finals was San Antonio over Cleveland in 2007 in James' debut trip to the championship round. But he's not going anywhere, even mentally, until this series is over.

One sportsbook manager said his book considers the Sixers LeBron's likeliest landing spot and the Cavs would jump to 12-1 if King James returns to the Land.
