When is Game 3 of the NBA Finals?

Debra Rodriguez | 05 June, 2017, 07:47

The effort was there.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have a Kevin Durant problem. The head coach stepped away from in-game duties after the Warriors beat Portland that night, citing a worsening of the health condition that has plagued him for much of the past two years.

Steve Kerr was back on the bench for the Warriors in this one, which was great to see and gave the Warriors and emotional boost.

This one is looking much different. Maybe he's right though-if the Warriors win that series, maybe they don't go out and sign Kevin Durant, and the future of the National Basketball Association is monumentally different. The King notched his eighth career Finals triple-double with a 29-point, 11-rebound, 14-assist performance, tying Magic Johnson for the most career triple-doubles in NBA Finals history.

Draymond Green may not be the best player on the Warriors, but he is a central figure on the NBA's best team. An interesting historical anecdote.

The best-of-seven series now shifts to Cleveland for two games, with Game 3 Wednesday.

With a crushing defeat behind them, the Cavs will attempt to even the series when the game tips off at 8:00 PM ET on ABC tonight. I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't think I could do it.

As for adjustments - there are a lot to be made.

Here we go: Game 2 of the NBA Finals has started.

Yes, they got easy baskets en route to a 31-assist night. Thompson played a mixed role in Game 1, watching Irving and at times defending against LeBron James, Kevin Love and JR Smith.

"It's awesome", Klay Thompson said.

"This past week, for whatever reason, things got worse, my symptoms got worse, and I was not able to coach" Kerr said at the time.

There are some impressive streaks that merit some mention going into Game 2 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors were the more physical team in Game 1, something that isn't acceptable. At the other end, Cleveland's first eight points were in the paint. Yet if LeBron's teammates don't step up, this will be a quick series.

Assistant coach Mike Brown has filled in for Kerr during his absence as the Warriors have gone undefeated in the postseason. It was 40-34 after one quarter very fast-paced quarter. He attended the pregame news conference Sunday and said he had not yet told his players that he would be back coaching, though said they knew in recent days that he was improving. They managed only 21 points, 16 rebounds and twice as many turnovers (four) as assists. It was the first time he coached the Warriors since April 19. Curry had six of those turnovers. With those numbers, your back may need a quick break from carrying all of your teammates through most of the game. The Cavs got within 11 at 108-97 but then got hit with a three-star combination KO punch in a 13-2 Warriors run.
