In the fourth quarter, Curry erupted for 16 of his game-high 33 points in the frame and was a ideal 5-of-5 from beyond the arc in the eight minutes he played that quarter.

"It says that the voters on the NBA Finals MVP checked their brains at the door before they voted", Kellerman said when asked what it would suggest if Curry was named MVP again.

Cleveland turned the ball over a series-high 14 times in Game 3 , and the Warriors converted for 19 fast-break points. The Warriors steamrolled the Cavaliers in last year's Finals in five games and can sweep Cleveland in Game 4 Friday.

We'll find out which route the Cavs go in Game 3 soon enough, but whether this series goes four games or seven, the Curry conundrum looks like it's going to be these NBA Finals' defining factor.
