NBA Finals Game 3 Player Ratings: Durant and LeBron trade stellar performances

NBA Finals Game 2 memes target the refs, and JR Smith, too

And I'm talking about the foreseeable future.

Durant's last basket was eerily like a 3-pointer he made late in game three a year ago against the Cavs that clinched a Golden State victory.

With one more win, the Warriors can get the sweep, their second straight title and third championship in four years. They will have the opportunity to do it again Wednesday.

Goodbye, Warriors-Cavs. It was quite a fight while it lasted.

Lue said he plans to look at guard Rodney Hood off the bench to add some zing to the struggling Cavaliers attack.

Melania Trump makes appearance after 24 days out of sight
She had not been seen in public since undergoing kidney surgery on 10 May. "We're used to our first ladies being out and about". She sent early signals that she will not bow to speculation or public expectations about what she should be doing.

To avoid a similar scenario, Cavs players besides LeBron James (who has averaged 40 points, 10.5 assists, and 8.5 rebounds through two Finals games) will have to step up and make shots. Kevin Love wreaked havoc in the first half, both rebounding and shooting the ball.

"It's not surprising hearing the news today with the Eagles", James said.

The fact that Curry had help, whereas LeBron James didn't, was the story of the match and might be the story of this series.

Two-time league Most Valuable Player Curry ended with nine three-pointers, an NBA Finals record, while dishing out eight assists and grabbing seven rebounds in his 33-point performance.

And the Cavs will be on home turf for the next two games. Durant is incredible, but his isolation sets have had a tendency to drag down Golden State's offense at times. The Cavaliers' offense is 7.9 points per 100 possessions better in Quicken Loans Arena, and their defense is 7.4 per 100 better. It was a close game, perhaps a great game, but the outcome felt as inevitable as sunset. "This is the last team in the world you want to relax against".

Apple may unveil latest software updates at annual conference
According to a report from Axios, the next major iOS update is said to focus on improving reliability and performance. Apple will reveal what is next for the software that powers the iPhone , iPad and Apple Watch later on Monday.

"It sucks to lose", a grim-faced James said.

"You mean to tell me that the most valuable player is only ever from the winning team?"

"Let's not let that accomplishment of things that you will have for the rest of your life - and people will always call you a champion for the rest of your life - let's not have someone uninviting you to their house take away from that moment". James needs to decide which teammates he can trust early each game then go to them as much as possible.

"That margin for error is so little, so thin against them, I think in some cases you have to be flawless", Love said.

With the Cavaliers knowing their backs were against the wall, it was expected that they would come out of the gates flying in Game 3. They might even win that one, as they did in Game 4 here previous year. There is no coming back from this deficit, against this foe. "We still have to have that enthusiasm, trust and belief that we can get this thing done". As basketball fans, we may not be playing on the court ourselves, but we can relate to our heroes' failures and victories, repurposing them for meme mortality.

Trump also told reporters that what Blagojevich said, while " stupid ", was something "many other politicians say". D'Souza is a best-selling author and successful filmmaker who served as an adviser in the Reagan administration.
