Warriors beat Cavs to close in on second straight title

Andre Iguodala Warriors LeBron's Game 3 dunk sets social media on fire

I can say this without hesitation or fear of reprisal: this Cleveland team will not be the first squad in National Basketball Association history to come back from a 3-0 series lead - James is too exhausted, his supporting cast is too feeble, and the Warriors are simply too damn powerful.

However, Golden State clawed its way back.

For the second-straight year, Durant posted a singularly spectacular performance in the third and pivotal contest of the NBA Finals, highlighted by game-clinching 3-pointers from the left wing with less than a minute to play to effectively clinch the title for the Warriors.

Tonight is the night: Game 4 of the NBA Finals - a must-win for the Cleveland Cavaliers who are down 0-3. And then you've got a guy in Klay (Thompson) who could easily be on a team and carry a team, score 40 in a quarter before.

Considering that fact, statements made by James on Thursday morning offered a pretty legitimate cause for concern regarding James' uncertain future in Cleveland.

"We have a lot of talent", James said.

James, who can be a free agent in July, stopped just short of saying the Cavaliers don't have enough to beat these Warriors. He scored 43 points, grabbed 13 rebounds and dished out seven assists, and he made four 3-pointers from 30-plus feet.

But beyond the talent disparity, James said the key to winning a championship is "you've got to be very cerebral too". "They just think you go out, and, 'Oh, LeBron, you're bigger and faster and stronger than everybody, you should drive every single time and you should dunk every single play and you should never get exhausted, never.' Like it's a video game". We've been in a position where we could win two out of these three games. "But who can think throughout the course of the game?"

The 33-year-old can choose whether to stay in Cleveland or take his talents elsewhere this summer, and most teams are expected to make a play to sign him. But not almost as much as the Warriors, who also possess the "minds", too. "Top two best players in our league", said Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue. "You can't have miscommunication, you can't have flaws, you can't have 'My fault's or 'My bad's or things like that because they're going to make you pay".
