Perfect shot: Durant's late 3 gives Warriors 3-0 Finals lead

Perfect shot: Durant's late 3 gives Warriors 3-0 Finals lead

Live updates of game three of the National Basketball Association finals between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Combine that with last year's 73-win season, and a second title in three years — which could have easily been three consecutive championships — and foundation of the case has been made.

The Cavaliers, though, couldn't get far enough ahead in the fourth to get comfortable and the Warriors kept chipping into their lead before Durant's defining 3-pointer. Golden State won 118-113. Close throughout, with superstars on both teams playing at superstar level.

Warriors: Golden State is the 13th team to take a 3-0 lead in Finals, and third since 1996.

Some people may argue their greatness, but James won't.

"Do I look exhausted?" "He's been an incredible player in this league for a long time, and he senses this is his time, his moment, his team".

He's just going up against a better team. GSW shut out all their previous opponents for the right to meet the Cavaliers it looks like they are on their way for a flawless 16-0 2017 playoffs record. For the Warriors, a win will make them the first National Basketball Association team to get through the playoffs with four series sweeps, 16-0.

His decision to hire Cullen seems wise, as this investigation shows no signs of losing steam anytime soon. Cullen also served as the attorney general of Virginia and as a USA attorney under President George H.W.

They spoke openly of their desire to beat Jordan's 72-win team in 1996, but this time have downplayed the importance of 16-0. "We were much more physical today than we were in Game 1, and we forced them to 20 turnovers". "And just we obviously — we want 16 wins; it doesn't matter how we get there".

But KD, who was struggling for openings in the better part of the games, took matters into his own hand and buried his last throw of the game from beyond the arc.

To this point, chapter three of Cleveland vs. But protecting the lead meant leaving Irving on the floor for the entire second half and James for all but a few seconds of it, and on the other bench Steve Kerr kept reminding his deeper Warriors that the Cavaliers were going to get exhausted.

"They're definitely a different team than they were a year ago that's definitely in full effect that we're all fully aware of", the Cavs' Kyrie Irving said. Durant has now scored 30 or more in each of the Finals games. Curry, victor of the last two MVP awards, is fully healthy after struggling through last year's Finals. However, the Warriors had no trouble handling them at home. The defeat suffered by Cleveland came as the Cavs role players came out and delivered what's expected of them, making the loss even more agonizing.

They look ready to play for many more.

"I never been in this position before", said Durant, long accused of not being able to win the big game. "They have their youth, they have their health". Cleveland would have to shoot exceptionally well to win and cover and I don't see it happening.
