>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live -- game night"! tonight -- will ferrell. guillermo at nba media day. presented by flonase sensimist allergy relief. and now, from way downtown, here's jimmy kimmel! >> jimmy: thank you. thank you for joining us in primetime. it's a big night tonight. we have game three of the nba finals. golden state warriors versus the cleveland cavaliers from the quicken loans arena, the only arena where you can get garlic fries and a subprime mortgage, too. the warriors as you know won the first two games of the series which means they're 14-0 in the playoffs, that's a record. it looks like their strategy of having all the best players on one team is paying off.
of course, they led the series 2-0 last year and if the cavaliers can find a way to stop durant and curry and kla thompson and draymond een and d a few other guys they can turn this thing around and win this thing. i'm not an expert when it comes to basketball. i'm not a coach or a player. i can't figure out how to get the needle in to pump it. i thihihihink i've figured the cavaliers' problem out. cleveland -- they're only getting two points for a lot of their shots. whereas the warriors are being awarded three points and it's not fair, right, but this is interesting. after game two, a writer for espn.com tweeted that the cavaliers' locker room had a strong reefer aroma to it. which means, the writer's old because no one says reefer anymore. but it also means the unthinkable has happened. someone in the nba and i don't know who but someone is smoking pot.
you know what else has been high during the nba finals, the ratings, the highest-rated nba finals series nce 1988 when michael jordan won his last title. [ applause ] >> jimmy: i didn't realize the audience was filled with salespeople from abc. more than 20 million watched game two. the ratings -- they have renewed this series for next year. that's how well the ratings have been doing. we have a great show for you, the wonderful will ferrell is here.

movie -- it's the only way he'll learn. will ferrell has basketball experience. he played semipro, and seminude, too. here's an interesting basketball/social media statistic. according to researchers at stonybrook university, nba players who stay up late tweeting before the game tend to deliver subpar performances the next day. same goes for presidents, by the way.

relationship between tweeting and basketball? someone get to work on chlamydia. speaking of social media, steph curry took some flak for mething that happened in the fourth quarter at the end of the game two. the warriors were up by 12 points. steph was spotted on the sidelines taking what appeared to be a little nap. >> the warriors, you wananto make sure you continue to take care of the basketball. don't allow the cavs team to gain momentum. >> jimmy: maybe he was up late tweeting, i don't know. the truth was he was resting an injury. he's no stranger to criticism. last year during the finals, he released a new shoe that didn't go over well with the internet. that one. these are the kind of sneakers you yell at your dad for wearing. unless he's a nurse.e. then it's okay. this year steph's rolling out a new shoe, this shoe is t tgeted specifically at a group of customers who are too young to complain about how they look. ♪ >> every day, you pay your dues.
