  • LeBron James: Winner of NBA finals won’t be going to the White House

Stephen Curry made just one 3-pointer, albeit in a clutch situation, but the Golden State Warriors were still able to take a stranglehold on the NBA Finals behind a 110-102 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3.

Game 4 is Friday in Cleveland, and if the Cavaliers lose, it will be the first sweep in the Finals since 2007 when they lost to the Spurs in four games.

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

They overcame deficits of 17 and 15 points against Houston in the final two games of the Western Conference finals, the second of those on the Rockets' home floor.

In the game's final stage, Golden State was better, leaving James to compare his opponent to a gold standard in a different sport. He took control of the moment for the second straight season and pushed the Cavaliers one step closer to the brink of elimination and an uncomfortable offseason.

With a 12.7 in metered market results, last night's exhilarating Game 3 of the 2018 NBA Finals dipped just 5% to be pretty steady from the comparable match-up of past year. But he returned to play late in the third quarter and finished with two rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes.

"It wasn't just the number of points", Golden State coach Steve Kerr said.

Cleveland did what it had been saying it would do for two days - come out better on home court - and the Cavs led for the entire first half, thanks in part to awful shooting from the Warriors.

Having similarly delivered at this stage previous year, Durant has spent the last 12 months dodging questions about whether he will ever top his 2017 display, and he now plans to do the same when asked to analyse his latest performance.

"That wasn't the same shot", James said.

One of the themes of these NBA Finals has been that LeBron James hasn't gotten enough help from his teammates.

"Game 3" because in Game 3s the last two years, he has just broken the Cavaliers' backs with some all-time performances.

LeBron James was quick to point out the differences after Wednesday's game, though both shots obviously were huge. If Golden State wins, it'll be their third National Basketball Association championship in four years. But at the same time I knew the game wasn't over.

The shot gave the Warriors a six-point lead and capped off an unbelievable night for the superstar.

Warriors forward Kevin Durant scored 43 points on 15-of-23 shooting. 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.

"I guess because you are comfortable", he said.

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