LeBron James during Game 3 of last year’s NBA Finals

The Cavaliers were not able to recover from Smith's blunder.

James answered inside but Curry drove for a layup, got fouled by Love and sank the free throw for a 107-106 Golden State lead with 23.5 seconds in regulation time.

"He took it the hardest, I thought, because he knew if he hadn't had the unfortunate injury, he's dragging us the last (way to the Finals), He's been there before at those moments and got injured sometimes".

Then there was Cavs icon LeBron James and Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry, engaging in a bit of trash talk and a playful push, after the former blocked the latter's shot in overtime. The reason for the review was there was "doubt" as to whether James was in the restricted area, but replays showed he was clearly outside. "I tried to bring it out and get enough space to maybe get a shot off", Smith said.

"I think it's great", the Warriors forward said Wednesday.

Kyrie Irving is undeniably a huge loss for the Cavaliers, especially with Kevin Love failing to live up to expectations as their second-best player. "I saw the drive, I was outside the charge line, I stepped in, took the contact".

Serena Williams claims first major post-baby win in black catsuit
Whatever happens over the next two weeks, Williams insists her family priorities have eased the expectations on her as a player. Serena needed a few games to find her rhythm but managed to hold off Pliskova's challenge, 7-6 (4), 6-4.

James had his highest-scoring playoff game ever, tied Jerry West for the most 40-point games in a single postseason with eight and nearly single-handedly led the Cavs to the win.

Curry scored a three-pointer as the Warriors opened up a one-point lead.

Obviously, Golden State Warriors fans were unhappy with the result of the Finals, as they had just posted the best regular season record of all-time, and - as any fan would - thought they would run away with the Larry O'Brien trophy.

Golden State's Klay Thompson added 24 points and Draymond Green contributed 13 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists, five steals and three blocked shots. Durant averaged 30.4 points per game over that series.

A physical, heated and emotional game marked the start of the fourth finals in a row between the teams and the eighth in a row involving James, who echoed Lue's theft theme. We just came up short.

LeBron James was a bit more straightforward with his opinion. He's been doing it for us all season. Who knows! This is a "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" sorts of things, and all we can say right now is that we're getting the fourth chapter in what has been an epic rivalry between these two squads.
