LeBron, Cavaliers Come Short Late in Heartbreaking Game 3 Loss »
After LeBron James and Kyrie Irving combined for 77 points only to see it wasted in a 118-113 loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 3, James said the Warriors possess “probably the most, most firepower I’ve played in my career.” The Cavaliers led the Warriors by six with 3 minutes, 9 seconds left before Golden State closed on an 11-0 run, led by Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant.
The Cavs had a plus-minus of plus-7 in the 46 minutes James played and were minus-12 in the two minutes he rested. I think that stat says it all. He is averaging 32 points, 12.3 rebounds and 10.3 assists per game in the series, putting him on pace to become the first player in Finals history to average a triple-double. All that seems just not enough as they face a 3-0 deficit in the NBA Finals.
King James laced up a new Home colorway on the Nike LeBron Soldier 11 in the contest. I like how Nike is using the big logos on the sole to highlight on-court look.
