NBA Finals 2018: LeBron James sets another record

Using this lineup more frequently - with Harrison Barnes in place of Kevin Durant - was decisive in the 2015 Finals and it would not be shocking if it proved decisive again this year. And down the stretch, Durant just kept making big shot after big shot.

The Cavaliers and Warriors are meeting for the fourth consecutive NBA Finals, with Golden State having won titles in 2015 and 2017 while Cleveland captured the 2016 crown, rallying from a 3-1 deficit in the greatest comeback in finals history.

He finished by shooting 11-of-26 from the floor, 9-of-17 from 3-point range, with seven rebounds and eight assists.

"I don't care. I don't care at all", James said. "I didn't want to run in there and shoot a bad shot.so I chose to shoot it from there and it felt good leaving my hands".

Golden State's style of play is both carefree and careless, and straddling that balance while finding a way to continue winning has proven to be the self-imposed obstacle that drives them.

There are nights when the Warriors win by the grace of their fluid offensive scheme, and others when they rely on the singular exploits of Kevin Durant. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined to shoot 3-for-15 in the first half.

Coming off a Game 2 in which he attacked, distributed and performed yeoman's work defensively on LeBron James while Curry dazzled from distance, Durant moved front and center in the Warriors' offense. Curry scored on a lay-up, then hit his only three-pointer of the night (after missing his first nine), followed by another three-pointer from Durant to put Golden State up 106-100 with 49 seconds remaining. They led by as many as 13 points and the Warriors didn't claim their first lead until the third quarter.

But unlike Durant, Smith and Love didn't keep it going. To be up six at the half after being up 13. they're going to make runs.

We're not sure if you've heard, but James has the opportunity to become a free agent this offseason if he opts out of his current contract with the Cavs, and that has started to loom over the 2018 NBA Finals that the Warriors now lead 2-0.

Remember Rodney Hood, the former Duke star? He was becoming a quality National Basketball Association player in Utah. But since being traded to Cleveland in mid-season, he's been hard to find on the court.

"Their words were "we want to sweep him out of Cleveland".

Smith went 2-of-9 from the floor and scored only five points. He made 7-of-11 field goal attempts. ABC announcer Mark Jackson called it the type of play fans would talk about for years.
