LeBron James on 2017 Warriors: 'Most firepower I've ever seen'

NBA Finals Warriors Cavaliers Basketball LeBron James on 2017 Warriors: 'Most firepower I've ever seen'

Cleveland could have won Game 3 had they played better in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter, and their mistakes down the stretch will haunt them this summer. Despite leading late, the Cavaliers lost at home, and now trail the series 3-0. And while the playoffs have often been called boring - up to and including the first two games of these Finals - the ratings for this year's Finals are higher than last, a sign that people are in agreement with the league's best player about the NBA's state of affairs.

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green (23) gestures to fans during the second half against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4 of basketball's NBA Finals in Cleveland, Friday, June 9, 2017. The Warriors took care of the Trail Blazers, Jazz and Spurs in the postseason. The Cleveland Cavaliers superstar remains the face of the National Basketball Association, and is its best player even as his 14th season in the league comes to a close.

For all the talk about the high-powered Warriors' offense - and often rightfully so - they're a terrific defensive team too. The Warriors have won 10 out of their last 12 games during the postseason by double figures. The Warriors tout four All-Stars in their starting lineup, including former MVPs Kevin Durant and Steph Curry, and a couple of former All-Stars coming off their bench. At one point in the opening quarter, Durant accounted for 10 of Golden State's points in a row. The Cavaliers in the regular season ranked 4th, with 110.3 per game.

The Cavaliers are no match for these Warriors, not even with arguably the best player on the planet in LeBron James.

Expect another big game from James, and Cleveland won't go down without a fight, but it likely won't be enough to keep their now slim championship hopes alive. Also, James corralled 11 rebounds, handed out nine assists, stole one pass and blocked a shot in the losing effort. Thompson stopped penetration and challenged Irving's 3-point attempt, which he missed. The late-game flubs will be a sticking point.

'Daily aspirin use may up risk of severe bleeding, death'
"Since numerous deaths are preventable by taking PPIs, people over 75 should be prescribed a PPI along with their aspirin ". For patients aged under 65, the annual rate of life-threatening or fatal bleeds was less than 0.5%.

When you are betting on this game on Friday, take the over for the total. "Obviously you never know what's going to happen, but as it stands right now, they look pretty good, as far as the future".

James broke down the play, highlighting every detail - Green with five fouls, Durant collapsing, Curry guarding Kevin Love and Korver being open in the short corner - before delivering his own counter punch.

And, even after all of that, they still had to go out and play the games. The two of them combined to be 31-56 shooting with 77 points. His team is one game away from that history after Wednesday's stunning, comeback victory in Game 3.

Other current and former National Basketball Association players also chimed in on Twitter about the dramatic Game 3 showdown.
