LeBron James: Warriors' 'firepower' probably most I've seen

LeBron James: Warriors' 'firepower' probably most I've seen

Curry's Warriors, who lost last season's National Basketball Association finals to the Cleveland Cavaliers after blowing a 3-1 lead, are on the verge of capturing their second title in three seasons.

This term they have become the first team from the United States' four major professional sports leagues - the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL - to win 15 successive post-season games.

Wednesday night's win ran the Warriors' record in the 2017 NBA Playoffs to a spotless 15-0, making them the first team in NBA Playoff history to win their first 15 games in a single postseason. "(I) just stayed in front of him and luckily he missed the shot".

Then Kyrie Irving made the three-pointer that really won the championship for him and LeBron and the Cavaliers and Cleveland.

Just like past year, the NBA Finals are at 3-1 after four games. "Tomorrow's another important opportunity ... to continue the series", said LeBron James, averaging a Finals triple-double but admitting after Game 3 that he felt "drained" in the exasperating round.

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. "I made a play for the team". "We have a lot of guys who can play off the ball and make plays and take some pressure off of each other, and I thought that was a factor down the stretch". Irving was asked if he ever imagined scoring 38 points and LeBron James scoring 39 points - and the Cavaliers losing. "He took over. You can tell he knows this is his moment". They went on to win the championship, their first, in seven games.

Klay Thompson, after starting the series going 3-for-16 in Game 1, shot 11-for-18 on Wednesday en route to 30 points.

The Warriors lead the NBA Finals, 3-0, with Game 4 Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena.

Cleveland had looked like they might prevail when they were ahead by six points with three minutes to play, but Kevin Durant led the Warriors on an impressive 11-0 run to close out the game.

"I've been working on that shot my whole life", Durant said postgame. He's worn down like that in every game, and the idea of getting him more rest just means bigger deficits. It's the first time the same two teams have met in the Finals for three consecutive years.

Good to hear from you all after The King went scoreless for the final four minutes of Game 3, by the way, LeBron haters. Fortunately, tonight was the Cavaliers' best game in the finals.

James and Irving combined for 77 points on 31 of 56 shooting.

"So we won't be exhausted because we got adrenaline on our side and we got to act like this is a do-or-die situation", Thompson said.Kevin Durant has been nothing short of remarkable in this year's NBA Finals.
