LeBron James: 'I want to win just as bad' as Warriors do

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

The Golden State Warriors are poised to make history Friday as the first team in National Basketball Association history to go undefeated in the playoffs, and they will because they just have too much fire power.

LeBron James scored 39 points for the Cavs, who did at least improve on the opening two games, but will be left to rue to a damaging last three minutes.

Kevin Durant scored 31 points, seven of them in the closing minutes, and the Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland 118-113 on Wednesday, seizing command of the NBA Finals and extending their undefeated playoff run in dramatic fashion.

So at the end of the day, I want to win just as bad as they do. "We've got one more to go".

Thompson and Curry sank back-to-back 3-pointers late in the second quarter to boost the Warriors lead, but Irving's inside bank shot pulled Cleveland within 67-61 at half-time.

The only suspense left is whether LeBron James and the Cavs will be able to take a game in the series.

Klay Thompson, after starting the series going 3-for-16 in Game 1, shot 11-for-18 on Wednesday en route to 30 points. "I mean, just hits an unbelievable game victor, just comes down in transition, that only Kevin Durant can hit".

Just like past year, the NBA Finals are at 3-1 after four games.

Jeff Duncan of SC said he had just left the practice and encountered the apparent gunman in the parking lot before the shooting. But a day later, Trump was already tweeting again about "crooked Hillary" and the email scandal that plagued her 2016 campaign.

"Kevin Durant is a once in a lifetime player", Thomas said, "I don't think our league has ever seen a player like a Kevin Durant who is so unique".

Going in its favor, Cleveland is 5-1 at Quicken Loans Arena in the 2017 postseason and 14-2 it its past 16 playoff games at The Q overall.

King James has been averaging a triple-double (32 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 10.3 assists per game) in these Finals, yet the Warriors' "firepower" hasn't allowed him and his Cavs to win a single game in the series thus far. Great players, they always dig deep and have their will to win.

James has defied the odds before, perhaps most impressively a year ago against Golden State when his Cavaliers were the first team to win a title after trailing the Finals 3-1.

To win the Warriors had to overcome monster games from LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.

"I look at it as we lost the Finals, but we ended up with KD", Green said. We just kept telling the guys, they're going to get exhausted.

Cleveland could have won Game 3 had they played better in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter, and their mistakes down the stretch will haunt them this summer.
