Durant fires Warriors to brink of perfection

Durant fires Warriors to brink of perfection

Cleveland, which won last year's National Basketball Association title, fell into a 3-0 hole following a demoralizing 118-113 loss in Game 3.

Looking at the way things have moved in the first three matches, the Cavs have to come up with something extra special to beat Warriors, who are favourites to win 4-0 and take home the National Basketball Association title. Draymond Green finished with 16 points, Stephen Curry totaled 14, Klay Thompson 13, and Shaun Livingston added 10 off the bench.

With their 15th straight win, the Warriors now have the longest postseason streak for any team in the four major professional sports.

Cleveland, who suffered a pair of lopsided losses to open the series, looked like they were about to finally beat the Warriors after leading the game for much of the second half.

Durant, seeking his first career title after joining the Warriors from Oklahoma City last July, and Curry scored on drives to the hoop to pull Golden State within two. "He's been an fantastic player in this league for a long time, and I think he senses this is his time, his moment".

Cleveland forward LeBron James (right) had 39 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists against Golden State on Wednesday night, but the Cavaliers find themse.

Kyrie Irving scored a game-high 40 points as the defending champion Cavaliers pulled to within 3-1 and forced the best-of-seven series back to Oakland. Warriors now lead Cavaliers 3-0 in the best-of-seven-final.

"I feel like if we come in with the same energy, same effort and physicality as we did in Game 3, we will give ourselves a good chance to win", LeBron James said on Thursday. No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit. The Cavs also shut down the Warriors transition game, allowing only 7 fast-break points when they averaged 33 through the first three games. The Cavs have not played badly in the finals, but it is the brilliance of the Warriors, which has stood out in the NBA Finals.

"We played a desperate team on their home floor", Kerr said.

That remained a possibility the entire game Wednesday night - until the closing minutes, when the Warriors ripped the Cavaliers hearts out. "Now that we're in this situation, why not take care of business and finish the job?" he added. And Golden State wasn't bad. "We're going to come in tomorrow, watch some film, see ways we can get better and just try to take it one game at a time". Golden State's nine 3-pointers in the first quarter broke the previous Finals mark held by five teams, most recently the Warriors in 2015.

"It wasn't our smartest game that we played all year, but it was maybe our toughest". G Deron Williams has missed each of his 11 shots in the series.
