Warriors take 3-0 series lead on Cavaliers


ABC will broadcast the game live beginning at 8 p.m. Game 4 on Friday is a chance not only to win it all, but to become the first team in league history to go 16-0 in the playoffs. "We're confident in him taking that shot every time". Golden State's past failures made this victory even more rewarding. Warriors have chance to clinch National Basketball Association title, complete 16-0 playoffs The Cavaliers' meters are running down and some say they're already expired. He can make an great team arguably the best ever.

They don't pay him the tribute that Warriors coach Steve Kerr did.

"I think it's just part of my calling to just go against teams in the midst of a dynasty", James said on Thursday.

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.

Kevin Durant was the biggest prize of last year's offseason and on Wednesday he showed why the Warriors were so keen to get him, draining the shot of his career to put Golden State on the cusp of an unprecedented ideal postseason.

Clearly, the Warriors and Durant are too good for the Cavs and LeBron. "I mean, it was just 'Let's just have some fun playing ball. That's exactly what happened throughout the season", Durant said.

"The bigger thing is that we got two stops after I made that shot", Durant said. Magic Johnson has said that his Lakers would probably have even done it in a sweep. Durant's three came in transition, but it was only one of several instances where the Warriors pulled up for three before the Cavs could set their defense.

The 28-year-old forward hit the go-ahead shot with 45 seconds remaining to put the Warriors ahead to stay in game three of the NBA Finals, giving Golden State a 3-0 edge in the best-of-seven series that could end Friday in Cleveland.

In his postgame interview, he used the word "liberating" to describe the shot, the moment. When you really want to see James's value, however, all you need to do is look at how his team performs when he's not on the court.

This is how a great team or band or company does it, and that's why the Warriors have broken the record for most consecutive playoff victories in any of the four major pro team sports with these 15.

"Hey, you know you can lose one", Beckham yelled out.

But Golden State with Durant is on another level than the teams Cleveland roughed up in the Eastern Conference, and the Cavs just couldn't hold them down long enough. "And that's what he's been doing".

"I mean, just hits an unbelievable game victor, just comes down in transition, that only Kevin Durant can hit".

J.R. Smith swears he didn't send a tweet guaranteeing that the Warriors would blow a 3-0 lead, which seems believable and not at the same time.

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

"None of these guys are ball-dominant players", Kerr said.

The message apparently resonated, leading multiple players, including Richard Jefferson and Kevin Love, to reflect on their winding paths to get to the 2016 championships. "And it fits. They fit like a hand in a glove".
