NBA Finals Game 3 ratings up 22 percent from last year

They became the first team to triumph after falling into a 3-1 finals deficit when they beat the Warriors in seven games previous year.

Many of the Warriors players credited the win to their team's defense and ability to get stops when they were needed and having held the Cavs scoreless in the last 3:09 - they can certainly say so.

Kevin Durant's three-point pull-up jumper with 45 seconds left in regulation proved to be the decisive basket for the Warriors, who were forced to scrap at the Cavaliers' pace for the latter part of the game. Right now, look at our TV ratings, look at the money our league is pouring in.

"I'm not one to judge and say if it's fair or not if guys are adding players to their team", he said.

But despite the win, a comfortable 3-0 lead and being 48 minutes away from a title and a flawless 16-0 playoff run, the Warriors know that finishing the deal is going to be hard. "Why not? If I become an owner, I'm going to try to sign everybody".

James made his first Finals appearance 10 years ago, when he and the Cavs were swept by San Antonio, which captured its third Larry O'Brien Trophy in a five-year span. Now, a fourth one seems almost as distant with the scary-good Warriors just getting started.

Through three games this series, the former league MVP is averaging 34 points. They have seen the Cavaliers come back from a series deficit before, and they were more prepared for the best Cleveland had to offer. "Tomorrow's another important opportunity for us and for myself, obviously, to continue the series", said James, who had a game-high 39 points in the game-three loss. So I don't want to relax or feel like it's over. "I want to compete for championships every year", James said.

Durant eclipsed the 30-point mark in Game 3 in storybook fashion.

Durant came out hot in the first quarter, hitting two triples in the first 150 seconds.

"I just saw an undeniable will to win", Thomas said.

Thomas said that Durant is a uniquely talented player, the likes of which don't come around often in the National Basketball Association.
