The Warriors took Game 3 right out of the Cavs’ hands with a fourth-quarter comeback — and took a 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals. After Golden State’s win Wednesday night, an obvious question popped up: Can the Warriors sweep through the entire playoffs?

Well, unless you’re J.R. Smith. We should all know by now ol’ J.R. operates a little differently than the rest of us.
The tweet was then deleted only minutes later, but it had already received more than 20,000 retweets. Smith claimed his account was hacked.
I got out of the shower and my phone was buzzing. I did not tweet that, Smith said. I’m smarter than that.

Lowdown: This was Michael Jordan’s path to that first NBA championship, and it took three physical battles against the Pistons to get there. Jordan staked Chicago to a 2-1 lead in 1989 after a 46-point performance in Game 3, but Isiah Thomas closed the series with a 33-point effort in Game 6. The Pistons needed seven games the next season before Jordan finally took the torch in 1991 with a sweep. Thomas and several Pistons players walked off the court before time expired.
Lowdown: This was the best NFL rivalry in the 1970s, and with good reason. This trio followed the crown-jewel game of the rivalry with the Immaculate Reception,which was in the 1972 AFC divisional playoffs. The winner of this game won the Super Bowl each of those three seasons. Pittsburgh won at Oakland in the 1974 championship game behind Franco Harris’ two TDs in a 21-point fourth quarter. The Steelers won again in 1975 in a wild fourth quarter in which 23 points were scored and time expired on the Raiders’ last-ditch drive. Ken Stabler threw two TDs in the third installment in 1976, a game in which the Raiders coasted to victory at home.
