Warriors take stranglehold on Finals

They have not changed their minds this year.

On the day when the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be there to commemorate winning the Super Bowl - a visit that was canceled by President Donald Trump and had the White House accusing players who weren't planning on attending of abandoning their fans - Curry and James were among those speaking out at the NBA Finals in support of the Eagles.

"For me, tonight will be tough", James said.

"I was definitely excited", said Durant, who tends to try and keep emotions to himself. "So it won't be Golden State or Cleveland going". He also wanted his team to be more physical than they were in the two games played on Golden State's floor to start the series.

There were some initial fears that Stephen Curry may have suffered an injury, which would have accounted for his off game, but the Warriors star's return ended that speculation.

Curry said Tuesday that he spoke with a current Eagles player about the team's decision-making process and how it went deeper than disagreeing with Trump policies and the ongoing issue of some National Football League players choosing not to stand for the pregame playing of "The Star-Spangled Banner". "It's never been done before where you know he's outside the restricted, and then you go there and overturn the call and say it's a block". We found a brazen one in Warriors territory who isn't afraid to fly his Cavs flag in the face of his team's long odds. That lineup extended a razor-thin one-point lead with 7:34 left in the fourth quarter to cruise for the win. If the bone bruise in his knee is sufficiently healed, it could allow Golden State to put him on James in hopes that he can slow the superstar down just enough to lessen Cleveland's chances of an upset.

Cleveland has no answer for Kevin Durant.

"It was determined he was out of the restricted area, but he was not in a legal guarding position prior to Durant's separate shooting motion", referee Ken Mauer said after the game. James was shown asking Lue if the team had any timeouts and then reacting as if he had been punched in the stomach when he learned the Cavs could have stopped the clock.

The GPU architecture also gets a bump, from the Adreno 540 to 630 family, though it's a little less clear what this entails. Today at Computex 2018 , Qualcomm has unveiled a new chip targeted specifically at Windows PCs.

The reigning National Basketball Association champions looked rattled. Many members of the US Olympic Team that competed earlier this year in South Korea did not attend a White House reception. When the New England Patriots went past year, half the team chose not to attend.

"That was unbelievable what he did out there tonight", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. "So it's just the way it is". But I think having guys that get so excited about a good play, a good block or a good rotation or a good shot or dagger shot. ("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.

Golden State was up three and Durant was being guarded by Rodney Hood 35 feet from the basket. So the photo op don't look bad. "But we've got to do a good job of just taking away the easy ones". He even went out of his way to force some shots in an attempt to find some rhythm.
