Andre Iguodala plans NBA Finals return, progressing with knee injury

The Warriors All-Star has never missed a postseason game.

Hello darkness my old friend.

He played all of three minutes in the seven-game Western Conference Finals against the Rockets and played only six in Game 1 against Cleveland.

LeBron's Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Warriors 122-103 to drop down 2-0 in the series.

Despite Cleveland's success at home this postseason, the Cavs are five-point underdogs at Quicken Loans Arena in Game 3 Wednesday night. Teammate Jeff Green shares some words with James before the Cavs' disappointment ultimately translated onto the court, with the Warriors opening up overtime on a 9-0 run. Most of the time, the calls were in favor of Golden State.

"Absolutely not. It sucks to lose", James said. James and coach Tyronn Lue raved about Smith's ability to bounce back from tough moments but that didn't happen Sunday. Oh well. Curry and the Warriors are closing in on their third title in four years.

"To be on top of that 3-point list is pretty special", Curry said. Just go out and play.

Last year's NBA Finals MVP made his initial five field goals Sunday, driving right at James on offense and doing all he could to fluster him on defense.

"I thought he did a great job", Kerr said.

"I will continue to stay uncomfortable, and I hope our guys continue to stay uncomfortable no matter with us going back home". After holding a 19-4 edge on the offensive glass in Game 1, the Cavs were 15-7 on Sunday. "But that shouldn't give us any comfort", James said. It hasn't been almost enough against a Warriors' team that has four All-Stars in the prime of their careers, including Stephen Curry, who set a Finals record with nine three-pointers made in Game 2.

"I'm always a person the fans like to talk to and heckle", Smith said.

James is already the career leader in finals 3-pointers with 83, but Stephen Curry is closing fast and only two behind him.

This homecoming should help the role players find some comfort and come out with better performances, but they will have to start by making the most of these opportunities, as LeBron James and Love won't be able to carry the load in each game as they have been so far.
