The Cavs returned to home court Wednesday night for Game 3 of the NBA Finals, but they didn’t get the advantage they had hoped, losing to Golden State, 110-102.

They are now on the brink of being swept out of the NBA Finals, down 0-3 in the series.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue says the team was unable to maintain the lead they had going into halftime.

The Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors last night at Oakland in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, 122-103.

LeBron James made 29 points compared to his 51 points in Game 1, but the Golden State Warrior’s Steph Curry broke an NBA Finals record by making nine 3-point shots.

Cavs' coach Tyronn Lue says the game could have gone better if they started out stronger early on in the game.

The Cavs are in a familiar spot -- playing Game 3 of the NBA finals down 2-0. But a lot has changed since the NBA champs pushed the Golden State Warriors to seven games last season. WKSU Commentator Terry Pluto says that winning tonight’s game is crucial.

“No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit in NBA history,” he says. “In fact, what often happens is when you go down three games to none, you lose game four because the players themselves know it’s over.”
