Kevin Durant rewards Stephen Curry’s ‘childlike approach to the game’

It was eerily reminiscent of the three-point bomb he hit in the face of James in Game 3 of last year's Finals which, like this one, gave the Warriors a daunting 3-0 series lead.

"That margin for error is so little, so thin against them, I think in some cases you have to be flawless", Love said.

The Cavaliers, sparked by reserve Rodney Hood, closed to 83-81 entering the fourth quarter and battled the Warriors into the final seconds.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are down 3-0 heading into Friday's Game 4 of the NBA Finals against Golden State.

Smith finally made somewhat of an impact on the game, scoring 13 on 3-of-10 shooting from distance. Entering this series, some questioned whether Durant and Stephen Curry could strike the right balance.

This one, which ended in a 110-102 win by the Warriors, who now have a 3-0 lead in the series, did not have the drama and the palpably foul taste of a wasted opportunity that Game 1 did.

For the second straight game the Warriors off-ball movement - such as their split screens, or the Warriors just slipping a screen - confused a Cavaliers defense that is trying to switch everything but is not defensively disciplined enough to do it. Afterwards, he dismissed comparisons to his 2017 shot and focused on Golden State still needing a fourth victory.

It's clear James takes on a far greater scoring burden while playing at home this post-season, so expect a monster night from LeBron on Wednesday night. "But you definitely tip your hat". I mean, that's what he does. "He's a scorer. You know, he's an assassin, and that was one of those assassin plays right there".

It broke in Portugal this morning that Ronaldo has made a decision to call time on his career at Real. Ronaldo posted a photograph on Twitter with Portugal's possible starting XI and the message: "Ready".

The final quarter was a tight affair until Durant won the game in the final minute.

Durant was an efficient 15-of-23 from the field and 6-of-9 from 3-point range. His teammates did the celebrating for him.

Asked who he was staring at, Durant said: "I don't remember". "Tomorrow I'll replay some plays and some moments and things of that nature". Huge flames shot from the scoreboard.

Join us for live news and analysis from Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday at 6 p.m.in Cleveland, where the Warriors hope to move closer to their third title in four years against the Cavaliers. "Kevin Durant was my answer", James said.

For James, especially, it was a painful defeat.

As for Iguodala's extended rest, he actually said he wasn't too upset that he had to miss the final four games of the Conference Finals and the first two games of The Finals.

Cleveland raced into a 16-4 lead in the first half, the highlight being James throwing a pass to himself off the backboard and finishing with a dunk. If the Warriors sweep the Cavs, it will be the first time an National Basketball Association team has gone winless in the Finals since a young James and the Cavaliers fell to the 2007 National Basketball Association champion San Antonio Spurs.
