The Golden State Warriors are a juggernaut and LeBron James knows it as he faces them for the fourth time in a row in the NBA Finals. The King will have to pull off another miracle in hopes of winning another NBA title as the Warriors took a commanding 3-0 lead in the series Wednesday night with their 110-102 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
During the postgame press conference, James likened the Warriors to the New England Patriots and noted that you can not make any mistakes while playing them.
“The margin of error is very low,” James said of playing Golden State. “It’s almost like playing the Patriots. You just can’t have mistakes. They’re not going to beat themselves.
“When you’re able to force a miscue, you have to be able to capitalize and then you have to be so in tune and razor sharp and focus every single possession. You can’t have a miscommunication, you can’t have lulls, you can’t have my-faults or my-bads or things like that, cause they’re gonna make you pay.”
The Cavaliers had a major snafu during Game 1 at the Oracle Arena. They had a chance to win but George Hill missed a free throw and J.R. Smith made one of the biggest blunders in playoffs history, thinking the Cavs were up one when they were instead tied. The Cavaliers went on to lose that game in overtime and have been a step behind the Warriors since.
Game 4 will take place on Friday, June 8. The Warriors will have a chance to sweep the Cavaliers on their home court, while the Cavs will try to keep their playoff hopes alive.
