tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC June 7, 2017 8:00pm-8:31pm EDT
we join you. dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live -- game night"! tonight -- will ferrell. guillermo at nba media day. presented by sensimist allergy relief. and now, at the buzzer, here's jimmy kimmel! >> jimmy: thank you. thank you for joining us in pri 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 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 klay thompson and draymond green and a few other guys they can turn this thing around and win this thing. i'm not an expert when it comes to a basketball. i can't figure out how to get the needle in to pump it. 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 quote a strong aroma to it. which means, the writer's old because no one says reefer anymore. the unthinkable has happened. someone in the nba and i don't know who but someone is smoking
pot. [ laughter ] you know what else has been high during the nba finals, the ratings, the highest-rated nba finals since 1988 when michael jordan won his last title. [ applause ] >> 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 in the meantime we have a great show for you, the wonderful will ferrell is here. [ cheers and applause ] guillermo is here. will has a new movie called "the house." later on he'll attempt to sink a three-point shot out on hollywood boulevard. if he makes that shot, everyone in the studio audience gets a prize. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: and if he doesn't,
none of you should go see his movie -- it's the only way he'll learn. [ laughter ] will ferrell has basketball experience. [ laughter ] here's an interesting basketball/social media statistic. according to researchers at stony brook university, nba players who stay up tweeting before the game tend to deliver subpar performances the next day. same goes for presidents, by the way. [ cheers and applause ] according to a study players who are active on twitter between 11:00 a.m. a-- p.m. and 7:00 a.m., they got more retweets. why are the researchers -- why are they studying the relationship between tweeting and basketball?
speaking of social media, steph curry took some flak for something 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 want to make sure you continue to take care of the basketball. don't allow the cavs team to gain momentum. >> jimmy: 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. these are the kind of sneakers you yell at your dad for wearing. unless he's a nurse. it's okay. this year steph's rolling out a new shoe, this shoe is targeted specifically a group of customers who are too young to complain about how they look. >> every day, you pay your dues.
in sweat. in tears. you won't settle for second place. don't you want a shoe that works as hard as you do. baby shoes, by steph curry. to add hop and real leather uppers for maximum cankle support. drain long-distance threes. just like the babyface assassin himself. don't be a kraucrawler be a bal. steph curry's baby shoe, available in white -- that's it. baby shoes.
