KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Down 0-2 in the ongoing 2018 NBA Finals, Cleveland Cavaliers are back on their home ground - the Quicken Loans Arena - and take on a rampaging Golden State Warriors in the third final here.

The Cavaliers, who were powered by a 33-point performance from LeBron James, will try to become the first National Basketball Association team to come back from a 3-0 deficit and win a series.

James has done almost everything for the Cavs, averaging 40 points, 8.5 rebounds and 10.5 assists through the first two Finals games.

Cleveland opened the game with a 16-4 run but the Warriors closed the first quarter with a 16-7 spurt to pull within 29-28 entering the second quarter.

But if the Cavaliers want James to remain with the wine and gold, they'll need to pour out everything in Game 4 and work their way up from there.

Durant, the 2017 Finals MVP, faced criticism during the Western Conference Finals for his preference to shoot rather than pass.

And for good measure, we asked him about the Golden State Warriors, too.

Iguodala has averaged 11.4 points in 18 past finals games - including a 20-point showing for Golden State in last year's title clincher against the Cavaliers.


Despite the magnitude of his 3-pointer, Durant acted like he had been there before, bypassing a celebration for a stone face.

"That was fantastic what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said of Durant. Durant finished with seven assists, 13 rebounds and a playoff career-high 43 points en route to the Warriors' 110-102 victory.

The Cavs, who lost to the Warriors in last year's Finals, are in danger of being swept this year, even despite the monster numbers LeBron James is putting up so far.

"It's definitely a tough loss", James said.

Harris was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers and played with the team between 2014 and 2016, making the NBA Finals in his rookie season. But there were no late-game heroics this time like we've seen so many times in these playoffs. There will be a parade in the Bay Area before long, championship rings to hand out and another banner to unfurl on opening night next season, and more free agents likely will take a look at signing with Golden State in an effort to add to their own jewelry collections.

James led the Cavaliers with 33 points.

I selfishly was hoping Durant would leave.

"I try not to think about just scoring, but, you know, we struggled to shoot the ball early on and I felt like I had some good looks", Durant said. "We've got a lot of guys who can play, and they're all chipping in".
