Even during the 2016 title-winning campaign, Cavaliers had come back from a 1-3 deficit.
Last night, though, Schwarz once again attempted to push the psychology angle, this time asking for what LeBron had been thinking when Kevin Durant nailed a critical shot, along with what LeBron had been thinking a year ago about a similar Durant shot. Stephen Curry (2K16) was the only player unaffected by the National Basketball Association 2K "cover curse" over the past five years, as he's been with the Golden State Warriors since the start of his National Basketball Association career.
Even a triple-double of 33 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists by LeBron James was not enough for the Cavaliers to get their first win of the series. Players not named LeBron James were contributing, and it was a single-possession game down the stretch.
Francona ended his postgame news conference after the Indians beat Milwaukee Wednesday by saying, "Go Cavs!" "Just their will to win is something that's contagious, and it makes you a better player as an opponent as well". Game 4 is Friday night.

Durant put in a performance for the ages in Game 3 to put the Warriors 3-0 up in the series. On Thursday, he said James sees the Warriors as a San Antonio Spurs-type of organization - well-run, respectable and set up to win. ("You know, I had a pretty solid career before I hit that shot, I felt", Durant said.) He will be equally amused when he gets asked if the shot he made Wednesday will also be a defining moment. You want to keep trying to get inside somebody's mind. But after missing his first nine three-point attempts, Curry hit his first three-pointer when the Warriors needed it most - a trey with the Warriors clinging to a 98-97 lead with 2 minutes 38 seconds left.
"There is just a sense that we're all on the same team and nobody cares about whose team it is and all that stuff", Warriors Coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday. "We just try to do whatever it takes to get the W. Run the right plays", he reflected.
CLEVELAND, Ohio - On a night when most of the Golden State Warriors didn't have it, Kevin Durant went on an offensive explosion.
They built a lead as big as 13. If the Rockets had Chris Paul for Game 6 or Game 7 of that series, if Paul's hamstring hadn't betrayed him at the worst possible time, then the Warriors could very well be on vacation right now.
