Cleveland Cavaliers hoping to avoid being swept by Golden State Warriors: Crowquill

Tired talk: LeBron dunks idea he's worn out guarding Durant

Tired talk: LeBron dunks idea he's worn out guarding Durant

The Warriors' magical run this season and undefeated streak in the playoffs appears to have started on the same night Golden State lost in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

"Kyrie and LeBron had it going the whole game, but that's pretty taxing to go one-on-one the whole game", said Kerr. "He's been an unbelievable player in this league for a long time, and he senses this is his time, his moment, his team".

Still, Durant isn't looking too far ahead.

As the clock ticked under a minute, Warriors small forward Kevin Durant secured a defensive rebound and dribbled the ball over to the left wing, where he pulled up and knocked down a 26-foot three-pointer, which gave Golden State a 114-113 lead over the Cavaliers.

They will again have to rewrite the record books if they can recover this position, but with the Warriors seeking revenge for previous year that will be some ask. "We missed shots", he said. "We don't want to take the long 3s and things like that".

For Cleveland, James came close to his second consecutive triple-double with 39 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists. LeBron finished the first half with 27 points on 11-of-14 shooting, the rest of the team had 34 points on 10-of-27 shooting. "And for that to go in was just liberating".

The discouraging fact for the Cavaliers is that the team can't get much more out of its two best players.

After the Warriors went up, Irving missed a three from his favourite spot on the right side and the Warriors closed it out with four free throws in the final 12.9 seconds before celebrating briefly on the floor and then charging towards their locker room.

"Kevin Durant is a once in a lifetime player", Thomas said, "I don't think our league has ever seen a player like a Kevin Durant who is so unique".

But Durant was not going to be denied.

Before Game 3, Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue was asked about his insistence on continuing to play at a fast pace against Golden State, a recipe for disaster considering the Warriors' ability to score in transition.

Cleveland had collapsed in the third quarter of the first two games, letting the Warriors run away and hide.

CLEVELAND-Pace, they talked about in the days leading up to Game 3 of the National Basketball Association final here Wednesday, the frenetic pace of the Golden State Warriors and whether the Cleveland Cavaliers could, should or would match it.

A heartbreaking loss for Cleveland, to say the least, which will likely not be able to muster another team performance like it did in Game 3.

Kevin Durant #35 of the Golden State Warriors shoots against JR Smith #5 of the Cleveland Cavaliers. James also passed Sam Jones, Bill Russell and Baylor to move from seventh to fourth in career Finals scoring.
