Dynasty's doorstep: Warriors take 3-0 lead in NBA Finals

Draymond Green defends against Le Bron James

Draymond Green defends against Le Bron James

If Durant by himself is firing on all cylinders, the Warriors are still too much for any team to handle.

The Warriors' Game 3 victory was a testament to the sheer number of weapons they have at their disposal, which is exactly what National Football League teams have to deal with when facing the New England Patriots.

LeBron James was asked about a video clip that showed him sitting down immediately after J.R. Smith had absent-mindedly run out the clock in a tie game.

"I tried to just stay in the zone", Durant said, acknowledging he was nervous the Cavs could still come back. He finished with a playoff career-high 43 points to go with 13 rebounds and seven assists, including hitting 6-of-9 3-pointers.

Game four of the NBA Finals tips-off at 9:00 p.m. Friday in Cleveland.

But somehow the outstanding play of Stephen Curry has gone seemingly unnoticed. But we've got a lot of guys who can score and fill it up, and they lift each other up if one of them is having a tough night.

He did it to be on the big stage, to get an opportunity to take and make the biggest shots and to stare down James and the NBA's elite.

"Coaches, I think they have a good game plan moving forward, seeing maybe what kind of adjustments Cleveland can make", Livingston said. That's rare in the National Basketball Association because we're all professionals.

On Wednesday, that joy was tested.

Golden State as a whole got outworked in the first half, the Cavaliers had 10 offensive rebounds while the Warriors had just 17 total. Huge flames shot from the scoreboard. The effort to spread the ball around was concerted as James logged nine first-half assists.

LeBron James led the way for Cleveland with a 33 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds, two steals, and a pair of blocks, but his Cavs now face an insurmountable series deficit that no team in National Basketball Association history has ever recovered from.

Officiating in this year's NBA Finals has received some attention, especially after Game 1. That lineup extended a razor-thin one-point lead with 7:34 left in the fourth quarter to cruise for the win.

Iguodala, the 2015 finals MVP, scored eight points and made one steal in 22 minutes, but his impact went beyond those numbers.

4 - Andre Iguodala might be "pain free" but he sure looks like he's laboring dragging that knee around the court down the stretch.

After halftime Curry still had very little to add to the offense in terms of shot making as he missed two more threes and had another shot around the rim blocked, making it the second straight quarter he failed to make a field goal. Curry continued to struggle to find his shot and Durant began to shoot wildly in an attempt to shoulder the load. He eventually took six threes, hitting just one, but he was carrying this team. Then he delivered the final dagger from the left wing with less than a minute remaining to put the Warriors ahead by six points, shades of his 3-pointer that gave Golden State a commanding 3-0 lead in last year's Finals. The arena that had roared all night was silent.
