The NBA Finals are set to shift to Cleveland for Game 3 on Tuesday, June 9.

LeBron James piled up a triple-double with 39 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists as the Cavs even the best-of-7 series.

Golden State: The 67-win Warriors entered the postseason as title favorites and have played to that level throughout the first three rounds. Their 12-3 record in the playoffs comes out to a winning percentage just shy of their regular-season mark, which is to say that they’ve been elite against the best teams in the best conference even if they were somewhat fortunate to avoid the San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Clippers. If the Warriors were impressive back in mid-April, then they only look better now.

The Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets provided many examples of what Golden State does well. Games 1 and 2 were both very tight contests in which the Rockets very easily could have won, particularly in the latter. However, the Warriors made the necessary plays, got superstar-level performances from 2014-15 MVP Stephen Curry, and stayed just far ahead enough in crunch time to control the terms.

Based on the first two outcomes in Oakland, most expected the Rockets to play well when the series shifted to Houston for Game 3. That was most definitely not the case — the Warriors cruised to a 35-point blowout that confirmed their focus, commitment, and excellence. The Rockets won Game 4 with a record-setting first quarter, a terrific game for James Harden, and a scary fall for Curry, but that proved to be a brief hiccup for the Warriors. Game 5’s clinching victory saw them overcome rough games for the Splash Brothers (for different reasons) and early struggles to take control in the fourth behind very strong play from Harrison Barnes and other secondary players. Golden State enters the franchise’s first finals appearance in 40 years with a loaded roster, no obvious weaknesses, and many different ways to win.
