A year ago against Golden State, the Cavaliers became the first team to win the Finals after trailing three games to one.
The Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 118-113 on Wednesday to take a 3-0 stranglehold on the NBA Finals and move to within one game of an unprecedented flawless run through the playoffs. He made 7 of 10 shots in the third, part of a 16-point quarter that allowed the Cavaliers to take a 94-89 lead.
LeBron refused to buy into the notion that he was tired even though Kerr told he players to keep attacking because eventually James and Irving would tire.
They all are, at this point - and it shows, as the Warriors seem determined not just to avenge last year's loss in the Finals but also leave an indelible mark in the process. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving were otherworldly in Game 3.
"We just felt like the way they play, Kyrie and LeBron had it going the whole game", Golden State coach Steve Kerr said. "He's been an awesome player in this league for a long time, and I think he senses this is his moment, his team".
"We just kept telling the guys, they're going to get exhausted", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

If Australia beat England on Saturday, Bangladesh will not qualify for the semifinals. Not much later, Guptill was trapped plumb in front of the stumps by Rubel Hossain .
Cleveland Cavaliers player J.R. Smith has high hopes that his team will take home another National Basketball Association championship, at least that's what one tweet read following Game 3 of the finals.
"It was just flawless timing at the right moment", Iguodala said. And James has once again been criticized for not being more aggressive late in Game 3, when he made a pass to Kyle Korver.
Kevin Love added 23 points for Cleveland, which made 24 3-pointers and finished the first half with a jaw-dropping 86 points.
They need another one, starting Friday night in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. "He's been an incredible player in this league for a long time, and I think he senses this is his time, his moment".
"The only reason that came up is because we want to win this next game, and if we win that, that's 16-0", Draymond Green said.
Perhaps most frustrating for the Cavaliers, who host Friday's game four, is that after two lopsided losses to open the series they returned home and played their most complete game of the finals only to blow a six-point lead in the closing minutes. "I gave everything that I had, so at times throughout the game I was exhausted, but that's just because I was just playing as hard as I could. Obviously you never know what's going to happen, but as it stands right now, they look pretty good, as far as the future". It's the first time the same two teams have met in the Finals for three consecutive years. The Cavs went the last three minutes and change in Game 3 without a bucket.
