LeBron alley-oops slam dunk off backboard in NBA Finals

LeBron James NBA 2K

Iguodala's absence has been a significant loss for Golden State, as the Warriors have struggled to find a solid fifth player to insert into their lineup alongside the team's four all-stars: Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Kevin Durant.

He can put the Warriors in position for a huge road win, and Curry - the best shooter in the world - can suddenly wake up, make a layup to give the Warriors a 98-97 lead with 2:58 remaining and follow with a 31-foot 3-pointer to increase the advantage to four.

Steph Curry missed his first nine three-point attempts, but hit a big one late, and finished with just 11 points.

LeBron posted a triple-double of 33 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in the defeat but will lose in the Finals against the Bay Area franchise for the second consecutive year.

Here are all the Golden State vs Cleveland Game 3 NBA Finals details including the live stream and start time.

Speaking of KD, he had arguably the best game of his career, dropping 43 points on 15-of-23 shooting along with 13 rebounds and seven assists, including a dagger from nearly the exact same spot as the one he hit in Game 3 a year ago. This is the same man that once unfollowed the Cavaliers and everybody that had a thing to do with them as a way to get himself focused for the playoffs. Instead, the four-time MVP reflected on the huge talent that he and his teammates have had to play against in the last four NBA Finals series.

The Raptors' oh-fer here doesn't even quite explain the level of dominance. "Playing great defense, getting offensive rebounds and loose balls - and they have a 7-2 guard out there cooking".

He took close to $10 million less than what he could have earned on a max salary previous year.

The Brewers considered staying, but the team's travel plans to Philadelphia were already set and the players were going to convene at their hotel to watch the game.

James has, for the most part, been a one-man wrecking crew for Cleveland, carrying his team as far as he can with herculean efforts. The rims are supposed to be the same, but the results are quite different.

"I would guess that he goes to Houston", Bosh said of his former Heat championship teammate who can opt out of the final year on his Cleveland Cavaliers contract by the end of the month.

"That's what GMs and presidents and certain players - it's not every player".

Durant, however, had 24 points in the opening two quarters, including a deep 3 on Golden State's final possession of the half, and the Cavaliers took a 58-52 lead into the intermission.

All of that had appeared to be coming together in the 2016 Western Conference Finals when they held a 3-1 series lead over the Golden State Warriors.

Last spring, James passed Jordan for first place in all-time postseason points. Durant carried them, though, finishing with a playoff career-high 43 points. The team said after the game that he's OK.

James, who can be a free agent in July, stopped just short of saying the Cavaliers don't have enough to beat these Warriors.
