After game three of the NBA Finals, US expert Alex Ferguson assesses whether the Cleveland Cavaliers can continue their comeback against the Golden State Warriors. Cleveland completed a crushing 120-90 victory in Game 3, trimming Golden States series lead to 2-1 in the NBA Finals, but can the Cavaliers dethrone the reigning champions?Alex Ferguson looks ahead… LeBron James sparked to life after a lacklustre start to the series After being savaged in Oakland by the Golden State Warriors in the first two games of the NBA Finals, Cleveland looked completely and utterly lost.Kyrie Irving couldnt hit a thing, LeBron James was turning the ball over like your dear writer does whenever he plays pick-up games with friends, and the only sound JR Smith heard when hitting a three was clunk as ball hit metal and flew out.On the other side, the Warriors survived without explosive performances from either Steph Curry or Klay Thompson. That was because everyone else was sharp and Cleveland simply could not compete. Steph Curry is yet to display his best form for the Warriors How are Cleveland going to get back into this? people said, shaking their heads.Immediately, they decided to blame LeBron James. After all, he is the best player on the court. He should be taking Golden State apart on his own, right?Although James had not had a great first two games (especially his 11 total turnovers, including a seven turnover performance in Game 2), it was not all about James.Irving and Smith were a shambles, and Kevin Love - who seems to be the king of injuries when it comes to important games - was sidelined with a concussion that limited his play. No one else off Clevelands bench could even come close to Draymond Green, Shaun Livingston, Leandro Barbosa and Harrison Barnes.Cleveland might have the best player in the finals, but Golden State has the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh. How are they meant to compete? said one member of the US media.But, if you go back to it all, Cleveland really came apart in the third quarter of Game 1.After facing a double-digit deficit, the Cavaliers roared back to lead the game, quietening the voracious Golden State crowd. But as they missed two or three shots in a row, Golden State made theirs - all from three-point range.Suddenly a deficit of one was a deficit of 10 and the rest of the game - and Game 2 - wasnt even a competition. Funny what a few missed shots can do against a great shooting team.Back to Cleveland Klay Thompson has been hampered by a fresh injury Well, Cleveland had to compete in Game 3, and they did so. Actually, it wasnt a competition. That would have been too nice to describe what happened in Game 3. It was a hammering.At the start of the game, Curry had more fouls than he did points, and by the end of the game, his 19 points belied his worst three-point shooting game since Game 4 against Oklahoma City. Thompson, his splash brother, had to come off with a thigh injury which hardly helped matters either. He came back in, but by then it was too late.There was a patch in the second quarter during which Cleveland could not get anything to hit and the Warriors closed to a makeable eight-point deficit at half-time. LeBron and Kyrie went colder than a January night in Newcastle and Harrison Barnes was leading the charge.But in the third quarter, Clevelands energy returned and by the middle of the fourth quarter, Golden State head coach Steve Kerr was putting up the white flag and sending in the reserves.What will happen in Game 4?I have a sneaky suspicion that Cleveland will win Game 4 on Friday night. They have (some) momentum back and they suddenly believe a bit more after an unbelievably bad first two games in Oakland.All they have to do is keep LeBron, Irving and Smith hot and Curry cold.

TORONTO -- Steve Tolleson is the only Toronto Blue Jay who will want to remember Wednesdays game. With his team trailing the Cleveland Indians by 13 runs in the ninth inning, the Blue Jays utility infielder came off the bench to make his big league pitching debut and secure the final out. "I wish the circumstances hadnt even been that way to get that chance but I guess any time you have a chance to go out and try to get an out in a major-league game thats a pretty special opportunity for anyone," said the 30-year-old Tolleson after the Indians pounded the Blue Jays 15-4 at Rogers Centre. "I didnt take it for granted," said Tolleson, who joked that he tried to stay "below the hitting speed" against the two hitters he faced. He yielded a double to Lonnie Chisenhall and got Mike Aviles to pop up. Tolleson, who said he pitched a couple of times late in blowout games in the minors in 2011 and 2012, said manager John Gibbons came up to him before the Cleveland ninth to see if he was willing to go in to pitch if needed. He relieved Neil Wagner, recalled earlier in the day from triple-A Buffalo, who had given up six runs on six hits in 1 1/3 innings. "He was battling out there and if I could save him a few pitches to help him get ready for his next appearance then thats what the team needed today," Tolleson said. Toronto shortstop Jose Reyes flipped the ball into the stands after the Aviles pop up but Tolleson said it was retrieved for him to keep as a souvenir. David Murphy was 5 for 6 with five runs batted in and Chisenhall was 5 for 6 with an RBI as Cleveland (19-21) had 22 hits off for five different Toronto pitchers before 14,068 fans. The Indians led 4-2 after six innings before pounding the Toronto bullpen to turn it into a laaugher.dddddddddddd "We were in that game going into the seventh inning," Gibbons said. "Then, of course, it exploded on us. Get that one out of our system and come back tomorrow." Toronto (20-21) closes out a nine-game home stand against the Indians on Thursday night. Dustin McGowans struggles at home continued. The Toronto right-handed starter was touched for four runs in four-plus innings, including a two-run home run by Carlos Santana. McGowan (2-2), making his eighth start of the season, gave up a run in each of the second and fourth innings before being chased by three straight hits including Santanas two-run blast in the fifth. McGowan is now 0-2 with 16 earned runs in 15 2/3 innings and 9.10 earned-run-average over four starts at the Rogers Centre this season. On the road, hes 2-0 with six earned runs in 23 1/3 innings and a sparkling 2.31 ERA in four starts. "It was just one of those nights where they were waffling the ball," McGowan said. "Sometimes you have to tip your hat to them. "All my pitches were fine tonight. I just got hit hard." Former Blue Jay Yan Gomes had a three-run homer in the ninth off Wagner to cap the onslaught. Meanwhile, Cleveland starter Corey Kluber (4-3) had a solid outing. The right-hander retired the first 13 Blue Jays he faced and finished the night yielding two runs, four hits and a walk while striking out nine over seven innings. Adam Lind had two of the Blue Jays eight hits while Jose Bautista, Brett Lawrie, Juan Francisco and Josh Thole each drove in a run. After Thursdays game, the Blue Jays go out on the road for three weekend games in Texas before heading to Fenway Park for a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox beginning on Tuesday.
