Warriors take stranglehold on Finals

The Warriors, just like last season, now own a 3-0 series lead.

James landed badly going for a rebound early in the second quarter and limped on his right ankle, but the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player kept playing and helped keep the Cavaliers in contention in the second half.

NBA Finals schedule: When is Cavs vs Warriors Game 4?

Curry's single 3-pointer in Game 3 made him the first player in National Basketball Association history with a 3-pointer in 43 consecutive playoff road games.

From the moment Kevin Durant signed with Golden State two summers ago, the debate over who is the Warriors' alpha dog has raged: Stephen Curry or Durant?

One fan got under Kevin Durant's skin when he yelled "KD, U.T.'s butt!", a video from TMZ shows.

Iguodala had averaged 11.4 points in his 18 previous Finals games - including a 20-point showing for Golden State in last year's title clincher against Cleveland.

Just 4 minutes and 16 seconds into the quarter, the Warriors had turned a six-point hole into a five-point lead thanks to a 17-6.

"Kevin was the story in the first half, just keeping us in it", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. They overcame an 11-point deficit in Game 1 of the NBA Finals against Cleveland, and rallied from 13 points down to beat the Cavaliers in Game 3 on Wednesday.

He took close to $10 million less than what he could have earned on a max salary past year.

"It's definitely a tough loss and we had our chances", James said. Agreeing to such terms allowed the team to retain forward Andre Iguodala and backup point guard Shaun Livingston. "How do you put together a group of talent but also a group of minds to be able to compete with Golden State, to be able to compete for a championship?"

"It was nearly like I was cussing him out, but I was so happy", Green said.

Durant stood motionless after dropping his 33-footer, which gave the Warriors a 106-100 lead and effectively ended the fourth straight finals matchup between the rivals.

With the Cavaliers knowing their backs were against the wall, it was expected that they would come out of the gates flying in Game 3. So, I can't - I don't really know. "But we've got to come out and got to play 48 minutes".

I selfishly was hoping Durant would leave. He's such a high-IQ type of guy that he'll most likely find himself in the right place at the right time and help our rotation get back to what we're consistently used to.

"It would have been a lot more satisfying if we won", Hood said.
