LeBron: 'We haven't had many playmakers' for the year

"In the Houston series, everyone's saying he's iso-ing", Andre Iguodala, who returned to the Warriors' lineup for Game 3 and provided a surprising 22 minutes of solid play - capped by a thunderous slam in the final minutes - said.

Winning is expected to be the main priority of LeBron James in the upcoming free agency.

"You actually are trying to get me to say something", James said laughing. Or it could be LeBron James was hoping to change his team's luck heading in Game 3. James also laid out a potential blueprint for the Cavs to follow if they want to keep him. When Curry, Thompson and Green underperformed in Game 3, the NBA's second-best player led them to victory.

When all was said and done, LeBron came away with a triple-double-33 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds-in the Cavs' 102-110 Wednesday night loss to the Warriors at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena.

Stephens stands in Halep's path
Rafael Nadal has won 37 completed sets in a row at the French Open heading into his quarterfinal against Diego Schwartzman. It will be Halep's second consecutive Grand Slam final and her fourth overall attempt to win her first title in a major.

What do you think, Cavs fans: Will Cleveland win tonight? Even if they do throw a punch in Game 4, I doubt they'll strike back if the Warriors counter. With the Cavaliers' failure to reclaim the title against the Warriors, multiple signs are pointing that James will leave Cleveland for the second time as a free agent. For the team, another title would solidify them as one of the greatest teams in National Basketball Association history, and for superstars like Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry, another ring will boost their already stellar all-time resumes and push them closer to the top of the mountain.

"But how I'd feel if we would get a meeting with LeBron James?"

Golden State will get their first chance to close out the series on Friday in Cleveland. The room for error versus a team like this is slim to none. It's like playing the Patriots.

"I knew that my talent level here in Cleveland couldn't succeed getting past a Boston, getting past the San Antonios of the league or whatever the case may be", he said. You can't have miscommunication, you can't have flaws, you can't have "my faults" or "my bads" or things like that, because they're going to make you pay. KD can negotiate a new, long-term deal with the Warriors to stay with the team for the foreseeable future, or he can sign another two-year deal, with a player option after one season like he previously did.
