There’s a lot riding on Game 3, especially for the Cavs. Since they will be on their home court, the Cavs are expected to come out with no excuses. Like Kevin Love, 28, said after their crushing, Game 2 loss, “As an entire unit we need to play better… Going home to Cleveland and playing in front of our crowd isn’t enough for you, then you might as well go home.” Adding to that, Kyrie Irving, 25, kept it simple saying, “We got our asses kicked.”
But, it’s not over yet. Game 3 is Cleveland’s chance to put themselves back on top to keep the gold in Ohio. However, they will need LeBron James, 32, to be on par [which shouldn’t be an issue], Tristan Thompson, 26, smashing the boards, Kevin Love, 28, going hard in the paint, J.R. Smith, 31, to wake up [sorry, man], and Kyrie to outplay Steph Curry, 29, and make him dance. And, it wouldn’t hurt if Iman Shumpert, 26, came out with the same energy that he did in Game 2. No biggie, right? Well, LeBron seems to think the Cavs are well-prepared for Game 3. Check him out, below.

However, if Steph and Kevin Durant, 28, come out like a Shaq, 45, and Kobe, 38, tag team [like they’ve been], then the Cavs could be in trouble. Not to mention, if Klay Thompson, 27, can keep his shooting on point [like in Game 2] then he will be a major threat, especially since his defense has been exceptional. One thing is for sure, tonight will be an intense game.
