Durant's three sinks Cavaliers

NBA Finals Warriors Cavaliers Basketball

With the win Golden State moved to 15-0 in the playoffs by finishing the game with an 11-0 run over Cavaliers.

In a game of incredible numbers, James' plus-minus was the most intriguing of the pack: he was a plus-seven in his 46 minutes on the court. K.D. comes down, hits a big three, puts them up one, iso on the wing.

"It's not over", Durant said.

But even with James and Irving playing at an other-worldly level, Durant's cold-blooded pull-up 3-pointer with 45 seconds left made their efforts just a footnote in National Basketball Association history.

He scored seven straight points while the Cavaliers remained scoreless in the game's final 3:09, the biggest three coming on that 26-footer with 45.3 seconds left. Only three of their previous 14 playoff games had been within five points in the final five minutes, none since Game 1 against the Spurs.

Game 4 is slated on Saturday (Manila time) at the Quicken Loans Arena.

"We had a game that we had won that we let slip away", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said. "We had an opportunity".

James led the way for Cleveland with 39 points. Not against the Warriors and their all-world assemblage of talent. He ended up with 31 points.

James, who left Cleveland in 2010 to join All-Stars Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade in Miami, said he doesn't begrudge the Warriors for signing Kevin Durant and adding him to a roster that already had Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

"Having a close game down the stretch - honestly, it's been a while", Curry said.

Whataburger took a vicious shot at the downtrodden Cleveland Cavaliers following a devastating loss at home in Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals. Twelve teams have tried, and 12 teams have failed. Now, they have to sweep the remainder of the series to retain the title. It seems - what is the word? - unlikely.

The Game 3 record follows another historic shooting performance in the previous game, when the Warriors made 18 3-pointers to match the record for makes in an NBA Finals game. He wasn't going to lose that game and the look in his eyes as he put down the three showed the side of a man that's ready to win his first NBA Championship. "He's been an incredible 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".
