Cavs end Warriors perfect postseason run in Game 4

The Warriors (67-15) are also hoping to redeem an NBA Finals collapse from last season, losing to the Cavaliers after building a 3-1 lead. Certainly, no team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in the National Basketball Association playoffs - has any professional team done so in the post-season besides the 2004 Boston Red Sox?

And the Cleveland Cavaliers went up 113-107 with 3 minutes, 9 seconds left in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Durant's 3-pointer with 45.3 seconds remaining was the go-ahead basket as the Warriors scored the game's final 11 points.

Klay Thompson led Golden State with 21 points in the first half, sinking five-of-seven from 3-point range, while Durant added 16 and Curry 14 off four-of-six 3-point shooting. "Two weeks later, Durant signed a maximum contract that put him in a Golden State uniform for at least one season, with several more seasons likely to come". But I can definitely appreciate the simple fact of him either reshaping his game or just sacrificing maybe some shots here, sacrificing having the ball in his hands all the time.

James led the way for Cleveland with 39 points.

The man who was considered the league's best player two years running was not himself in last year's playoffs.

Durant lost to James and the Miami Heat when he was with the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2012 Finals, and didn't make it back until this year. When they met last summer in NY to discuss the biggest decision of his career, neither side even focused on winning titles. Yes, Cavs can as they have some quality players like LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love.

"I personally feel like this team can".

"Is it fair? I don't care", James said Thursday. And although he's on the cusp of being swept in the Finals - for the second time - by a team unequalled in today's game, James isn't envious of the Warriors for building a super power in sneakers. It would take an even more unlikely comeback for the Cavaliers to prevent the Warriors from winning the 2017 NBA Finals and Durant might take less than the max in the offseason to keep the core together.

There will be no sweep of these NBA Finals and no flawless postseason for the Warriors. A victory in Game 4 on Friday night would give them a clean sweep of the National Basketball Association postseason.

"I don't want to relax", Durant said. "Just because 16-0 means we're champs". I've never been in this position being up in The Finals and trying to close it out. They became the first team to triumph after falling into a 3-1 finals deficit when they beat the Warriors in seven games a year ago. "I think it's just part of my calling to just go against teams in the midst of a dynasty", James said. Had Green not been suspended for Game 5 last year, or had center Andrew Bogut not gone down with a knee injury, Golden State probably would have won their second straight title and we'd be talking about a three-year run of championships.
