The Cavs had caused some doubt when 2 of their 3 best players -Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving- had been injured and out for the count until next season.
But seems like LeBron isn’t letting the absence of his teammates hold back the Cavs. Instead, the Cavs have stepped up and seem to be using dominant defense strategies, holding the Warriors to only 40% shooting.
With LeBron’s 40 points, 12 rebounds, and 8 assists, the Warriors trailed behind for most of the game. Curry -who finished with a total of 27 sad points- wasn’t much help until the third quarter, which was too late by then. Curry might be the season’s MVP, but seems like LeBron is the MVP for the Finals.
Cavs’ pointguard, Matthew Dellavedova, took advantage of his time on the court to play LeBron’s unlikely sidekick. He ended the night with a career high of 20 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists.
The Cavs had a 96-91 victory.
Let’s see what Game 4 brings when they face each other again on June 11!
