The streets of Cleveland are buzzing in anticipation of magic from their favourite son LeBron James.

In Kevin Durant's two years with the Golden State Warriors, there may not be a better example of the lift he has provided the team than Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

After a season of uncharacteristic inconsistency and injuries to key members of their core, the Golden State Warriors are now one win away from their third championship in four years after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-102 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. And with Golden State already halfway to the four wins needed for another National Basketball Association title, his presence will make this comeback attempt by the Cavaliers in this series only more challenging.

"It's a big difference", Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said when asked to compare the pre- and post-Durant Warriors. Before sustaining the injury, he had started in 12 of 13 games this postseason, averaging 7.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists.

In the game's final stage, Golden State was better, leaving James to compare his opponent to a gold standard in a different sport.

A loss in his eighth consecutive finals would leave James 3-6 in career finals, his first being a 2007 sweep loss to San Antonio. "You can't have mistakes". "They're going to make runs".

In the opening minutes of Wednesday night's Game 3 against the Golden State Warriors, James held the ball with the shot clock dwindling down and the Cavaliers building an early lead.

"K.D. had one of his games that will go on his highlight reel and one that was incredible even by his standards".

This was not exactly the same shot from Kevin Durant.

With Iguodala, his value goes far deeper than stats. Meanwhile, Draymond Green logged 10 points, nine rebounds, two assists and two rebounds. 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. "But tonight we weren't that good". After Curry had a big Game 2 with 33 points, Game 3 was Durant's turn.

Entering the final three minutes of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Steph Curry had four points on 1-for-14 shooting.

Kevin Love scored 20 points and grabbed 13 rebounds while Rodney Hood chipped in with 15 points off the bench. And the Warriors are ecstatic that Irving, now with the Boston Celtics via an offseason trade, won't be suiting up in this year's Game 4. "We have another opportunity on Friday to win on our home floor.to extend the series".

Despite the magnitude of his 3-pointer, Durant acted like he had been there before, bypassing a celebration for a stone face. They sensed when he was dancing into shots and stuck their hands straight up, only for Durant to rise a little higher and make the shot over them.

While Curry was struggling to find his shooting stroke, Durant was having one of his patented offensive outbursts.
