Golden State Warriors: 3 keys for Game 3 of 2019 NBA Finals

Injury Update Klay Thompson and Kevon Looney

Kevin Durant has been ruled out by the Golden State Warriors for Game 3 of The Finals.

Two-time reigning NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Durant, who has missed the last seven games dating back to the Western Conference semi-finals, is improving and ramping up his exercises but no date has been set for his return. Chris Haynes of Yahoo! "But I really want to be out there".

Curry said that despite the injuries to his team mates, he does not feel a need to change his approach to what could prove to be a pivotal game given that teams who win Game Three in a 1-1 NBA Finals have a 31-7 series record. And if the other teams are honest (ahem, Houston Rockets), they'd admit hero antics may win regular-season games and give players individual awards, but they do not win championships.

Siakam was legendary in his first ever Finals game, totalling 32 points, eight rebounds and five assists while also supplying a major spark on the defensive end as well.

We're only two games into the 2019 NBA Finals and the Toronto Raptors have already experienced the highs and lows of playing for the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

China issues travel warning to citizens visiting U.S.
China issued a pair of travel warnings for the us on Tuesday and slammed what it called "interference" in its internal affairs. In the paper, China said in order to reach a deal "the USA should remove all additional tariffs imposed on Chinese exports".

The Warriors were able to weather the injury bug, as their sharpshooter and Game 2 leading scorer Klay Thompson (25 points) went down with what is being called hamstring tightness.

Without Thompson on the floor, Toronto was able to focus exclusively on slowing down Curry. At this point, he's widely known as the greatest shooter of all time.

While it won't be an easy task, since the Warriors haven't lost at home since the first round, there are ways for the Raptors to bounce back and retake the series lead. VanVleet has been huge for the Raptors off the bench, scoring at least 10 points in five consecutive games dating back to Game 4 against the Milwaukee Bucks. But it was his defence as part of an improved collective effort by Golden State that flipped a 118-109 loss in Game 1 into a series-tying win. This isn't anything new or surprising, as the Warriors have made a habit of dominating third quarters this season.

"We still got a lot of shots. Just the overall urgency of coming out with the third quarter, knowing how good they are as a good third-quarter team, we have to be a little bit more aggressive and assertive".
