CLEVELAND - LeBron James passed Michael Jordan for the most 30-point games in National Basketball Association playoff history by scoring 33 points in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 110-102 Game 3 Finals loss to the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.
One thing was the same in the early-going: James was a monster, with six points and five assists in the first quarter, punctuated by the off-the-backboard dunk that is normally only attempted in an All-Star Game or a dunk contest. Game 4 is Friday night.
There really shouldn't be any argument as to who is the best player for Golden State.
CNN sources say Trump is considering dozens of new pardons
District Judge Michael Hogan initially gave Dwight Hammond three months and his son Steven a year and-a-day behind bars. He made it clear Trump's legal team would combat any effort to force the president to testify in front of a grand jury.
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. This is the third time Durant and James have faced off in the Finals, each earning 4-1 series wins over the other. ("You know, I had a pretty solid career before I hit that shot, I felt", Durant said.) He will be equally amused when he gets asked if the shot he made Wednesday will also be a defining moment.
"That was fantastic what he did out there tonight", Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters.
Having similarly delivered at this stage a year ago, Durant has spent the last 12 months dodging questions about whether he will ever top his 2017 display, and he now plans to do the same when asked to analyse his latest performance.
Volcano eruption in Central America kills six
Seven people have been killed and 20 hurt after a volcano near Guatemala City exploded in a fiery display of ash and lava. The Guatemalan military said it was providing assistance including clearing volcanic ash from the airport's runway.
"Draymond is a catalyst and the anchor for their defense", James said.
The Heat haven't been in the NBA Finals since 2014, but that doesn't mean South Florida has stopped watching the championship series. He's now about to be a two-time champion because he went to Golden State. The Warriors have a 123.6 offensive rating in two Finals games, shooting 38.9 percent from three-point range. So, I can't - I don't really know. "It's nearly like playing the Patriots". He finished with 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. "It feels good to play well, but at the same time we need to get the one game two days from now".
Even though Green is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, his overall influence on a game sometimes gets lost.
"I guess because you are comfortable", he said. His ability to handle the ball, shoot the ball, make plays at his length, his size, his speed.
