- Golden State star scores 43 points in 110-102 Game 3 victory
- Warriors now lead Cavaliers 3-0 in best-of-seven series
LeBron James has pulled his Cleveland Cavaliers to an improbable NBA finals. But by early Thursday morning as he quietly walked out of his home arena in a purple warmup jacket, it was clear he probably won’t be able to drag the Cavs to one last title before becoming a free agent at season’s end.
The Golden State Warriors are too much for him and for his Cavaliers. In Wednesday night’s Game 3, finished just an hour before, James scored 33 points (in logging a 10th career NBA finals triple-double), limited Warriors star Steph Curry to just one three-point shot and still Cleveland lost, 110-102. Now, down three games to none in the championship round, his dream of winning more than one ring with the Cavaliers is all but over. Friday’s Game 4 could be his last with his hometown franchise.
