Thursday on TV: Can LeBron and the Cavs turn things around in the NBA Finals — again?

First Published      Last Updated Jun 07 2017 10:37 am

Will Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals take a turn, as did Game 3 of the 2016 NBA Finals?

A year ago, Golden State easily beat Cleveland in Games 1 and 2, winning at home by 15 and 33 points, respectively. Then they went to Cleveland and lost Game 3 by 30.

This year, the Warriors easily beat the Cavaliers in Games 1 and 2, winning at home by 22 and 19 points. And tonight (7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4), Game 3 is in Cleveland.

We'll see.
