The Golden State Warriors are one game away from sweeping the Cleveland Cavaliers and taking home the NBA championship after beating the Cavs in Game 3 of the NBA Finals Wednesday night.

Points he scored in the Warriors' late 11-0 run, the biggest of them a three-pointer with 45 seconds left to put Golden State ahead at 114-113.

The Warriors, leading the best-of-7 championship series 3-0 can wrap things up Friday night (Saturday morning in Manila) when the Cavaliers host Game 4 at the Quicken Loans Arena. It doesn't matter how we get there.

"I think we're better from our experiences", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

Golden State, which also had 30 points from Klay Thompson and 26 from Stephen Curry, would become the first team in National Basketball Association history to make an unbeaten playoff run to the crown by winning game four on Friday in Cleveland. Ever since Durant chose to join Golden State last July, he's endured all sorts of slings and arrows. In the three minutes without him, the Cavaliers were a -12. They don't own their own second-round draft pick until 2023, according to Real GM. "So we made enough plays tonight to still win the ballgame, but they made a couple more", added James, via ESPN.

After outrebounding Golden State in Game 1, the Warriors bounced back to post a dozen more boards in Game 2. "So we won't be exhausted because we got adrenaline on our side and we got to act like this is a do-or-die situation", Thompson said.Kevin Durant has been nothing short of remarkable in this year's NBA Finals.

"I never been in this position before", said Durant, long accused of not being able to win the big game.

"I don't think our careers are the same, as far as changing teams", James said, as transcribed by ForTheWin.

Until the Cavs did it past year, no team had ever rallied from a 3-1 deficit to win the Finals. That opened the door for what was a fantastic closing stretch, giving the Warriors 118-113 win and a 3-0 lead in the series. Without Green in the lineup, the Cavs took Game 5 on the road behind 82 combined points from LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.

James, who was 11-for-14 from the field in the first half, went 4-for-13 in the second, while Irving was 16-for-22 from inside the 3-point arc and 0-for-7 outside it for the game.

"That was liberating right there", Durant said.

Cavaliers: James (1,175) passed Sam Jones (1,143), Bill Russell (1,151) and Elgin Baylor (1,161) to move into fourth place on the NBA Finals scoring list.

If not for their meltdown a year ago, the Warriors, whose record-setting 73-win season got lost in the Finals aftermath, would be looking for a third straight crown. "And for that to go in was just liberating". "All I was looking at was the bottom of the net and I made sure my feet were behind the 3-point line".

If the Warriors sweep the Cavs, they'll make history for their undefeated playoff run. When Lue tried to buy James 30 seconds of rest at the end of the third quarter, the Warriors added two more points.
