The days for LeBron James & co. in these NBA Finals are running out, and quick. Plenty of experts have already given out their sentence, but I would not like to rush into anything, as it happened with last year’s Finals. Personally, I do not believe that the Golden State Warriors can reach that historic 16-0 in the playoffs, because the Cavaliers will make it ultra-hard on them in Ohio.

- Mass-media seems to be going crazy ahead of this stellar Game 3 and all sorts of incredible statistics, speculations and scenarios are being put on display. There is however one certain thing for me, Golden State Warriors is not the team that “after leading 2-0 was already thinking on how the parade is going to look”, as Klay Thompson said yesterday, but they are the team that added probably the second best basketball player in the world in Kevin Durant to their squad and that are sick and tired of hearing those “3-1” jokes!
“You understand the journey and how much of the energy it took from a mental and physical standpoint in order to come back from something like that. But you know it’s definitely possible “, stated Kyrie Irving, the Cavaliers Point Guard at the media availability ahead of Game 3.
- In the Game 3’s in which LeBron James was down 0-2 in the NBA Playoffs, “The King” has a remarkable record of 4 victories and a single defeat. Moreover, Warriors lost Game 3 in Cleveland in both previous years in the NBA Finals and Steph Curry himself said that coming into this arena, the atmosphere of the home crowd is overwhelming, especially in the first quarter. Proof of that is that the Golden State trailed almost all of their 1st quarters in Quicken Loans Arena.
