Dynasty's doorstep: Warriors take 3-0 lead in Finals

Dynasty's doorstep: Warriors take 3-0 lead in Finals

Golden State's Kevin Durant scored a game-high 43 points to carry his team to victory and a 3-0 series lead.

He logged another triple-double with 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.

Kevin Durant inspired a 110-102 win for the defending champions at Quicken Loans Arena and once again broke the hearts of Cavs fans.

In his first game back, Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Iguodala didn't miss a beat.

"Don't get me wrong, every time I make a shot in the National Basketball Association, I get excited", he said.

With their 3-0 series lead, the Warriors are one win away from securing their second National Basketball Association title in as many years since adding Durant in free agency in the summer of 2016.

Wednesday night's Game 3 of the NBA Finals was the 100th playoff game of Draymond Green's tenure with Golden State. The mystery is gone, and Golden State - which hasn't lost four consecutive games in the same season since 2013, back when Mark Jackson was coaching the Warriors instead of calling their games on ABC and ESPN - needs only to avoid an apocalyptic collapse to win their third title in four years.

After some contentious calls in the first two games, the official Twitter account of the National Basketball Association referees tweeted during game three to confirm James' pass to himself off the backboard was legal. LeBron James is averaging 34.5 points and nine assists while Kevin Love is averaging 15 points and 10.3 rebounds.

A popular way to watch Rockets vs Warriors Game 3 online live streaming without cable tonight is through Hulu Live TV. Cleveland jumped out to a 10-point lead in the first four minutes, proving once again the somewhat freakish fact that National Basketball Association teams have a habit of hitting a lot more open shots on their home court.

Cleveland came back from a 3-1 deficit to stun the Warriors in the 2016 finals, but that was when Durant was in Oklahoma City and James had a different supporting cast. They failed to convert, and the miscue set up the Pats for an end-of-half touchdown that gave New England a commanding 17-0 lead. "He would have been very good for us in the post-season", James said. "But I am confident that we can turn things around", said James on the eve of the third game.

Despite the Warriors going up 3-0, Curry had a night to forget, scoring just 11 points on a horrid 3-of-16 shooting.

It came on a night when no other Warriors player got it going offensively.

He had previously been starting for Golden State in these playoffs as part of what is known as the Warriors' "Hamptons 5" lineup - a nod to the four players who went on the NY recruiting trip to lure Kevin Durant to their team two summers ago. The Warriors guard felt Perkins, who did not move from his seat, should have made an attempt to get out of the way following Curry's wild 3-point attempt prior to the buzzer.

The Cleveland Cavaliers had their chance to make this series somewhat interesting in game three but ran out of gas in the second half.

LeBron James just had to tip his hat.
