ABC is off and running with NBA Finals

Despite every sign from the first two games showing the Cavs to be outgunned in this arms race of jump shooters, I have a hard time doubting the best player I've ever seen with my own eyes.

"It was a question mark for some people going into the season, losing (Andrew) Bogut and some other guys", general manager Bob Myers said. "That's what we want. "(The Warriors) are 14-0 in the post-season. To me it's a miracle that it's even a possibility.

Combine that with last year's 73-win season, and a second title in three years - which could have easily been three consecutive championships - and foundation of the case has been made. "That's the important lesson, not any historical benchmarks or anything like that". Shooting 16-for-33 from downtown masked what was a sloppy ball-handling night from Golden State.

A 150-point game isn't even out of reach.

Perhaps this shouldn't be surprising. It also would be a spectacular development because it would mean unless a seismic shift takes place with the Cavs in the offseason, James probably isn't winning another championship as long as the Warriors' core remains in tact. In addition to overcoming their opponent's home-court advantage, the Warriors have been undone in Game 3s by injuries, shaky execution, poor effort, and overconfidence along the way.

"They have nearly checked out in this series. So you've got to try to focus on the next game and focus on your job and what you can do to help your team be successful going into the following game".

Golden State is playing to be No. 1 this season.

"I knew I had to give LeBron at least a two-minute blow in that first quarter", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said of that early rest for James that proved manna for the Warriors, "because in the second half he might not get a blow". Golden State won 118-113.

Golden State trailed the entire fourth quarter, and ball movement ceased in a star-studded, isolation-based finish. In an interview with BeyondUltimate.com, Durant said: "the Bible both pumps me up and balances me to play my best". News flash! This isn't 2016, and the 2017 edition of this year's uber-stacked Warriors has Kevin Durant.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have been no match for the fast-paced Golden State Warriors through the first two games of the NBA Finals but insist they have no desire to slow things down when the series resumes on Wednesday. Broke the record of 14 straight postseason wins previously held by the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins, who did it in 1992-93.

"They're definitely a different team than they were past year that's definitely in full effect that we're all fully aware of", the Cavs' Kyrie Irving said.

KLAY THOMPSON: I think it wasn't just myself, it was everybody. They set a great tone. I feel like I'm on dating show right now. "We've got to be ready for that initial force".

"It's the most firepower I've played in my career", said James, who played all but two minutes. That is because of the frenetic pace Golden State was allowed to dictate.

They were winning by 16.9 points per game through the previous 14, which would easily be another National Basketball Association record.

There have been some moments of tension in this year's Game 3s. He was averaging a triple-double in the first two games of this best-of-seven series.

To Green, the difference between those victories and possible defeats can be chalked up to improved focus shaped in part by their historic Finals collapse.

Irving didn't let that happen in Game 3. I could see that. "The game will come to you". For starters, the Cavaliers will be at home. "You know, it's a rhythm thing. They're going to throw everything at us". "They have their youth, they have their health. They are playing at a much higher level than they were playing a year ago". Tristan Thompson, in particular, has been an utter failure in this series.

If Durant outperforms James, the Warriors cruise to the top. So if we have the same result Friday, those guys both have a great game, but we got to limit their other guys to not having big games. My game is getting into the paint, shooting some outside shots when they're available.

"I never been in this position before", said Durant, long accused of not being able to win the big game. "It's going to be the same".
