On Wednesday night (June 6), basketball fans get to watch Warriors vs Cavs live streaming online and televised coverage of Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals. In the first two games, Cleveland was unable to come away with anything, leaving them in a 0-2 hole. Now they'll try to salvage things and win this essential game on their home court. Meanwhile, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, and the Golden State Warriors are looking like they sense blood in the water so they may not let up. Here's the latest game preview with matchup odds, start time, TV channel, and how to watch the Warriors vs Cavs live streaming online.

Game 3 preview and odds

The fans in Cleveland will surely be pumped up as their team finally gets a game in the 2018 NBA Finals at Quicken Loans Arena. The previous two contests haven't gone the way of LeBron James and company. As seen in the first game, a late mismanaged possession by the Cavs ended up possibly costing them the win. That may also have carried over into Game 2, where the team appeared to have no way to answer the Warriors' weapons. In that Game 2 victory by Golden State, Stephen Curry made NBA history as he connected on a record nine three-point shots in a finals game. The previous record was eight three-pointers made by NBA Hall of Famer Ray Allen. Curry finished with 29 points and continues to look like he'll emerge from the series as the 2018 Finals MVP, a distinction he has yet to win.

However, the Cleveland Cavaliers know they don't want to be swept in the finals. LeBron tasted that earlier in his career when he led a less-equipped Cavs team to the finals against the San Antonio Spurs. Therefore it's going to be interesting to see how they respond to the Game 2 loss, the first 2018 NBA Finals game at home, and if head coach Tyronn Lue makes key adjustments in terms of his starting lineup or players' playing time.

Those could include benching J.R. Smith in favor of a reserve player such as Rodney Hood or George Hill to try to find another scoring option beyond James and Kevin Love.

For tonight's game, the visiting Golden State Warriors have clearly received the respect of oddsmakers based on the fact they have jumped to this 2-0 lead.

The Warriors are four-point favorites on the spread and -165 on the moneyline, as of this report. The Cleveland Cavaliers are currently +142 home underdogs while the over/under is 216.5 points for the complete game. The Odds Shark website also has predicted that the Warriors will win and cover in this game while the points total will stay under the suggested total.
