LeBron James, Tyronn Lue talk to media after Game 3 win
CLEVELAND– The Cavaliers defended the land Wednesday night.
Cleveland beat the Golden State Warriors, 120-90, at home in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. The Warriors still lead the series, 2-1.
Kyrie Irving and LeBron James combined for more than 60 points, while J.R. Smith hit a couple threes to add 20. Tristan Thompson made his presence known around the backboard with 14 points and 13 rebounds. The team played at a faster pace, thanks to Richard Jefferson in for the injured Kevin Love.
That win snapped a seven-game losing streak against the Warriors. But James said the team wasn’t think about that record.
“We just knew they beat us in Game 1 and Game 2, and they beat us pretty well,” James said “I don’t think anyone in the locker room knew actually how many times they beat us in a row.”
Love was placed in concussion protocol after the Cavs’ loss on Sunday. He was not cleared to play on Wednesday and his status for Game 4 has not been released.
The next game is Friday at 9 p.m. at Quicken Loans Arena.
