The Cavaliers, down 2-0 to the Warriors in the NBA Finals, needed to get out to a fast start at home in Game 3. Well, Cleveland has done just that.
LeBron James and Co. have raced out to a 12-4 lead over the favored Warriors in the early minutes of Game 3. We already have what might be the play of the NBA Finals, too.
Unsurprisingly, it was made by James.
The Cleveland Cavaliers star was isolated on the wing with JaVale McGee defending him. This did not work out well for McGee.
James got McGee in the air, pivoted toward the hoop, threw the ball off the backboard, took a couple of steps, grabbed the ball mid-air and threw down a thunderous jam.
It was ridiculous.
Watch it below:
Yeah, that got Cleveland fired up.
Game 3 is being televised on ABC. It's looking like it's going to be a good one.
