Kevin Durant confirms that he plans to stay with Golden State Warriors

LeBron's Game 3 dunk sets social media on fire

LeBron's Game 3 dunk sets social media on fire

The Cavs have tried for two years, and they are now left fighting to rally from a 3-0 deficit, which has never been done before.

It might be time to order some champagne from Napa Valley.

While James' Game 3 outfit was colorful, Warriors guard Stephen Curry took a simple approach, with a denim jacket, white T-shirt and slim jeans.

But James' jaw-dropping play this postseason was just part of the massive melodrama that surrounded the Cavs this year.

"No, not at all", he said of the comparison. But with just under three minutes left, the Warriors started to take control.

There was nothing the Cavs could do.

Golden State defeats Cleveland 110-102 and are 1 win away from clinching the championship. Entering this series, some questioned whether Durant and Stephen Curry could strike the right balance.

The Cavs began the second quarter with an 21-9 run, James scoring eight points and Love netting the final eight for Cleveland to produce their biggest lead at 50-37.

"It's definitely a tough loss", James said.

"You can't have mistakes, they're not going to beat themselves", he continued.

Because his sustained perfection is so necessary, LeBron is unquestionably the best and most valuable player in the finals, but he won't win finals MVP. This time McGee was free to roll to the basket, where Green found him for a dunk.

These Cavs can't figure it out.

In April, sources told ESPN's Chris Haynes that Durant would decline the player option and become an unrestricted free agent this summer so that he could re-sign with the Warriors on a restructured deal. After Curry had a big Game 2 with 33 points, Game 3 was Durant's turn.

Late in the game, Durant called for the ball on numerous occasions, clearly looking to seal the win.

And, if Durant doesn't come to Golden State, and Cleveland either defends its title or loses a tighter series, Irving isn't making trade demands.

"We got stagnant", Love said. "I didn't want to run there and shoot a bad shot, fall on the ground and they got numbers going the other way so I chose to pull up". No other player besides James had ever posted those numbers in consecutive Finals games.

He can put the Warriors in position for a huge road win, and Curry - the best shooter in the world - can suddenly wake up, make a layup to give the Warriors a 98-97 lead with 2:58 remaining and follow with a 31-foot 3-pointer to increase the advantage to four.

He said he tried to "fast track" Kryie Irving's mind when James returned to Cleveland four years ago. Second place was the Pacers (plus-5.7), who only played one series.

Warriors: Draymond Green passed Wilt Chamberlain (922) for the most rebounds in Warriors playoff history. "Listen, we're all National Basketball Association players".

With 7:38 to play in the first quarter, the Cavaliers held a 16-4 lead.

Cavaliers: Kyle Korver continued to struggle. Cleveland also avoided a sweep with a 137-116 victory in Game 4 previous year. Last year, we were up two, and he pulled up pretty much right at the 3-point line and I got a great contest, but he made it. "You can't have miscommunication, you can't have flaws ... because they're going to make you pay".
