Durant's dagger 3 lifts Warriors over Cavs in Game 3

Klay Thompson led the way with 30 points and Stephen Curry added 26 points to go along with Durant's team-high 31 points, including a 3-pointer over James with 45 seconds remaining to put an exclamation mark on the win.

The Cleveland Cavaliers entered Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals with the hope that they could temper the offensive onslaught exhibited by the Golden State Warriors in their two series-opening wins.

He was also one win away from returning to the Finals past year with Oklahoma City but they squandered a 3-1 series lead to Golden State, who he joined a little over a month later. "It's probably the most, most firepower I've played in my career", James said after the game Wednesday. But at the start of the final frame, he had just 17 points.

The same could be said for this year, when despite having three healthy All-Stars in the starting lineup, the Cavaliers simply aren't good enough to beat one of the greatest teams ever assembled.

He is averaging 32 points, 12.3 rebounds and 10.3 assists per game in the series, putting him on pace to become the first player in Finals history to average a triple-double, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Green first called Warriors GM Bob Myers to say, "It's on you", regarding the possibility of bringing KD to the Bay Area. "But we gave a great effort, and the result just didn't turn out the way we wanted to".

The Warriors leaned on an 11-0 run late in the game to pull the rug on the defending champions.

Anyway, I'm not one to play the "one team wanted it more" card and think that's the difference in a series, per se.

As LeBron was playing defense, he managed to collide with his teammate, Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson, and took a shoulder right to the face.

LeBron James delivered 39 points, 11 boards and nine assists for the Cavaliers, but he was held to two points over the final six minutes.

"They're definitely a different team than they were previous year that's definitely in full effect that we're all fully aware of", the Cavs' Kyrie Irving said.

The Warriors took an early lead, but the Cavs climbed back into it. Cleveland exploded for a big third quarter and the momentum shifted. James and Kyrie Irving fought for loose balls. Korver misses his shot, game's over. "It's the best we've seen of him". I mean, guys are loving the game, our fans love the game.
