NBA Finals Gamethread: Game 3

It's tied 1-1 as the series goes back to Cleveland. Come chat for the second half.

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Thirty seven points. 37. After the first half of game three, the Golden State Warriors have been held to 37 points. That is not many points. That is a score you see the Hornets putting up, not one of the league's best offenses lead by the league's MVP Stephen Curry.

Up seven, the Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to take a 2-1 series lead. What has to happen the rest of the game for that to happen? Can Matthew Dellavedova really keep Curry under wraps or will coach Steve Kerr find a way to unleash him?

And what about Lebron James? He's been "inefficient", but by shouldering the offense and slowing down the pace, the Cavaliers have taken the Warriors out of their comfort zone. What isn't James doing for this Cavaliers team?

Settle in, grab that second (seventh?) beer and get ready for an intense half of basketball. It might not be the prettiest, but this has been a great series so far.
