Warriors expect Andre Iguodala to play in Game 3

Rakuten's faith in those teams is close to bearing fruit with a double triumph in its first season of involvement after Barca won La Liga and the Warriors now lead LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers 2-0 in the best-of-seven NBA Finals.

"It's typical of him, I'm not surprised..." That invitation - not unlike the Eagles' - was pulled after a number of players vacillated on attending. President Donald Trump quickly scheduled the event with military bands after canceling a visit with the Philadelphia Eagles as he stoked fresh controversy over players who protest racial injustice by taking a knee during the national anthem. "But the basketball side, I was, like, man it's pretty damn cool that people enjoy the way I play and want me to play with them".

After they wasted a 51-point effort by James to let Game 1 slip away in overtime - and after Stephen Curry's nine three-pointers in Game 2 - the Cavs are faced with the reality that their season is in serious jeopardy.

Trump, who has equated the protest with disrespect of flag and nation, said last September that any protesting "son of a bitch" should be fired and added recently "maybe you shouldn't be in the country".

"We just try to do whatever it takes to get the W", Durant said. "He'll be a game-time decision", Kerr told reporters during the Warriors' afternoon shootaround.

That question, which some advocates had hoped would be answered with the Supreme Court case this session, will have to wait for another case.

"In the finals, this is the only building I know what that experience, that atmosphere, is like", Warriors guard Stephen Curry said. Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long - these guys are studs.

The WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx were not invited to the White House to celebrate their most recent title, something James called "laughable". "I think there's a good chance he'll play". "We're used to the dynamic of being ahead in a series and then having everything shift when you go on the road - especially when you play Cleveland". Because for him, joining the greatest shooting team ever assembled wasn't just about how much he could win, it was about how much they cared.

Golden State's Kevin Durant said.

"Teams progress to playoffs and finals and deeper into a tournament, we get more exposure". And if James wants to come to Boston, you better believe Danny Ainge will find a way to make it happen.
