don’t completely lose their

CLEVELAND — The Golden State Warriors have been in this precise position before Arden Key Color Rush Jersey , and they suffered a hiccup before they tasted champagne.

Golden State is the only team in NBA history to lead consecutive Finals 3-0. Both times it was against the Cleveland Cavaliers, including the 2018 Finals that could end with a Warriors win in Game 4 on Friday.

Last season, with a chance to clinch its second title in three years on Cleveland’s home court, the Cavs banged 24 3s and forced a Game 5.

“It’s different, man. I keep telling people,” Golden State’s Kevin Durant said. “It’s just a different vibe because we’ve been through a season with each other already as champions, going through a whole season. So we know exactly what we need to do in order for us to win.

“We wanted to do that, focus on that as much as possible. The emotions and all that stuff doesn’t really matter. We just try to play a solid, focused game, and we’ll figure out how to feel afterward.”

The Warriors are searching for their third title in four years — all against Cleveland — and their sixth title overall, which would tie them for third all time.

Durant, solid through the first two Finals games, jockeyed into pole position to win Finals MVP for the second consecutive season in Game 3 with his playoff-career-high 43 points in the Warriors’ 110-102 win.

Durant is averaging 31.7 points Derrick Nnadi Color Rush Jersey , 10.3 rebounds, and 6.7 assists in the Finals. His numbers are a little behind those of LeBron James (37.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, 10.7 assists) in this series, but Durant has the better team.

Stephen Curry set an NBA record with nine 3s in Game 2 and then shot 1 of 10 from 3 in Game 3. And the Warriors still had enough to beat the Cavs for the 10th time in the last 11 games, counting the regular season.

“We’ve had an opportunity to win two of these games in this three-game series so far, and we haven’t come up with it,” James said. “Obviously, from a talent perspective, if you’re looking at Golden State from their top five best players to our top five players, you would say they’re stacked better than us.

“We have a lot of talent as well. We’ve been in a position where we could win two out of these three games. So what do we have to do?”

No team has ever come back from an 0-3 deficit in the NBA playoffs (0-131). But the Cavs are nonetheless a tough out. They’re 7-2 in elimination games since 2015 and have successfully faced down elimination three times already this season.

Kevin Love has registered at least 20 points and 10 boards in all three games so far, giving James at least one layer of support against the vaunted Warriors.

“We’ve given ourselves a chance,” Love said. “I know that we’ll come out in Game 4 and really compete. We’re not going to give in.”

The Cavs blew a 13-point lead in Game 3 Korey Toomer Color Rush Jersey , and their disastrous final 36 seconds in regulation of Game 1 took away a win. This series could look a lot differently than it does right now, and the Warriors say they think the Cavs aren’t quite finished just yet.

“Just understand the details defensively of what we need to do against a team like Cleveland, with the threats that they have,” Curry said. “Understanding that Game 4 is going to be the toughest game that we’ve played in the series, to close it out. We’re going to need energy, effort, focus from every guy that steps foot on the floor for 48 minutes.”

James could be a free agent at season’s end. If he leaves Cleveland for a second time, the Cavs’ run of four straight Finals would almost certainly end. They could seek to trade Love and rebuild if that domino falls.

“These four years have been great,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “It’s not over. It’s not over. But, I mean, I wouldn’t trade it in for anything in the world.”
Now that he can see clearly again, Baltimore Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams is ready to resume his lucrative NFL career.

Williams has an eye disease called keratoconus, a degenerative disorder which warps the corneas and can potentially cause blindness if left untreated.

”It started to hinder my seeing the board when we went over plays Trent Murphy Color Rush Jersey , so I had to get it fixed,” Williams said. ”Once it starts messing with your craft, your career, you definitely have to put your attention on that before you do anything else.”

The condition is rare, and there is no cure. But it can be controlled by surgery.

”I was scared,” Williams acknowledged, ”but also relieved that there was a treatment out there that could help me.”

The procedure is called cross-linking, which limits the progression of the disease by strengthening the corneas. Williams had surgery on his more troublesome left eye before the 2017 season and had the right eye corrected earlier this month.

And now, the 340-pounder is eager to do his part to help the Ravens get back into the playoffs after a three-year absence.

”I can do everything I used to do,” Williams declared. ”Nothing is stopping me.”

That’s good news for the Ravens, who gave Williams a five-year, $52.5 million contract last year. Selected out of Missouri Southern State in the third round of the 2013 draft, the 29-year-old has been a vital cog in a Baltimore defense built first to stop the run.

Williams missed four games with a foot injury last year. The Ravens went 1-3 without him and 8-4 when he was in the lineup.

”He’s the main piece for our defense Cheap Josh Allen Jersey ,” Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said.

Rajesh K. Rajpal, M.D., founder of See Clearly Vision Group in Virginia and an expert on laser eye surgery, performed both operations on Williams’ eyes.

”It almost always affects both eyes – 98 to 99 percent of the time – but usually one eye will be more severe,” Rajpal said. ”Now that both eyes are done, Brandon should be fine. But we will continue to monitor him to make sure it doesn’t get worse.”

Williams wears contact lenses to aid his vision, but removes them on game days.

”In his case, the lenses he’s using allow him to function well enough in day-to-day activities,” Rajpal said. ”During the football season, he plays without the lens because he doesn’t want to take a chance of getting something beneath the lens and damaging his eye. That’s OK, because he’s doing things up close and a lot of it is about feel.”

Rajpal added: ”A baseball pitcher or a batter, it would be really tough for them to function without the contact lenses if they have this condition.”

St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Tommy Pham has undergone cross-linking and wears contact lenses on the field.

When Williams first experienced blurry vision, he figured he needed LASIK surgery. But Rajpal says LASIK would actually further thin the cornea.

”When we’re doing the testing for LASIK http://www.eaglesauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dallas-goedert-jersey , we do corneal topography, which maps the corneal curvature,” Rajpal said. ”If keratoconus is significant enough, we offer the cross-linking.”

If left untreated, the disease can be dangerous.

”Then we have to a corneal transplant,” Rajpal said. ”Fortunately, the vast majority don’t completely lose their vision.”

Williams nevertheless knows he avoided a potentially life-changing situation.

”I am thankful for having my sight,” he said. Then, with a chuckle, he added, ”I don’t have to be blind, so that’s a plus.”
