Warriors set NBA Finals record for made 3s in a quarter


The Golden State Warriors banked on an 11-0 run in the final three minutes to score a 118-113 win against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland. The Warriors had seized a 3-1 lead on the Cavaliers only to have James lead the greatest rally in NBA Finals history, becoming the first team to win the championship after trailing 3-1.

Golden State, which also had 30 points from Klay Thompson and 26 from Stephen Curry, would become the first team in National Basketball Association history to make an unbeaten playoff run to the crown by winning game four on Friday in Cleveland.

Cleveland was led by James with 39 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. But Curry hit back-to-back 3s on a 10-0 run to close the entertaining and exhausting quarter. It also won't be a bad idea to eliminate the defending champions early, to prevent them from regaining their confidence, and pulling off another epic comeback, just like they did a year ago.

"It's a dramatic situation to be in", James said. "It wasn't our smartest game that we have played all year, but it was maybe our toughest in terms of our ability to just hang in there".

"I never been in this position before", said Durant, long accused of not being able to win the big game.

Cleveland's J.R. Smith sank a 3-pointer to give the Cavaliers a 113-107 lead, but the Warriors scored 11 points in the final 2:20 for the fightback triumph.

"I gave everything that I had, so at times throughout the game I was exhausted, but that's just because I was just playing as hard as I could", James said.

It would have been understandable if James had been dour given that his hopes to win a fourth title and second straight with Cleveland evaporated in the closing minutes of Game 3. "I'm just trying to go out there and play hard every second I'm on the floor, play with passion and energy and joy".

"We talked about it since the Finals last year that the last season was a very unique year, for a lot of different reasons, and we learned a lot", Curry said. "He's been an wonderful player in this league for a long time and I think he senses this is his time, his moment, his team. and I think he's having the time of his life out there". "So even when you're playing well, you've got to play like A-plus-plus". The viewers have also proven that they are still interested in the series despite the dominance of the Dubs, which could mean having millions watching once again. "But I think that we just stayed with it, and our defense finally kicked in".

Irving felt it as well.

"Do I look exhausted?"

"Draymond got a tech, he gathered, got it back together, we moved on".

"I'm human, as well as my teammates, and to lay it all on the line like that, you want to come out on the winning side", Irving said.

"I chose to stick with those guys, being at home, down 0-2". Great players, they always dig deep and have their will to win.

Before the game, LeBron James dismissed the idea he's exhausted from guarding Durant. The Cavs played well enough to beat every other team in the National Basketball Association by double-digits.
