Warriors up 3-0 in NBA Finals

Warriors up 3-0 in NBA Finals

LeBron James hasn't slowed the Warriors, and he's hardly alone.

Kevin Durant saw the space and stepped back.

A 10-0 Cleveland run early in the third quarter brought the Cavaliers their first lead of the finals beyond the opening quarter, Kevin Love's 3-pointer closing the spurt to put the hosts ahead 71-69.

Golden State is on the verge of history.

After watching the Warriors go undefeated through 15 postseason games, it might be hard to find any Game 4 prediction that has the Cavaliers extending the series. 118-113 loss to the Golden State Warriors to fall down 3-0 in the NBA Finals, James said the Warriors possess "probably the most, most firepower I've played in my career".

"We want to play fast; we don't want to play in a hurry", Lue said.

The Cavs led late, but failed to score in the final three minutes and the Warriors made them pay. "Doing what he is supposed to be doing", said Irving.

They have a chance to become the first team in the National Basketball Association history to win the title without a loss in the entire playoffs. "I mean, just hits an unbelievable game victor, just comes down in transition, that only Kevin Durant can hit".

"I've been working on that shot my whole life", said Durant, who has averaged 34 points through the first three games of the Finals. Klay Thompson came alive offensively, as he scored 30 points while shooting 11 of 18 from the field and 6 of 11 from downtown.

James had 39 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists in 45 minutes, tiring at the end as even his indomitable will was found wanting when guarding Durant on a pivotal 3-pointer with 45 seconds remaining that gave Golden State the lead for good. Kyrie Irving attacked the rim all night, making one ridiculous finish after another, finishing with 38 points.

"It was like a natural shock how that game ended", Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving said. "We missed some shots, and they made some". They did all they could for as long as they could, while the Warriors patiently waited for them to tire. James played 45 minutes and nearly the entire second half. "He took over. You can tell he knows this is his moment. So even when you're playing well, you've got to play like A-plus-plus". Stay in front of them, force them into outside shots, if you can. "I can't be disappointed with the effort and how we played, but they made the plays down the stretch that we didn't execute defensively or offensively, and they took advantage of it".
