Cavs not giving up - James

"Cavs in 7! Cavs in 7!"

Over the years, Cavs-Warriors has become the NBA's best rivalry, and this year's lopsided Finals most likely won't help that.

The Cavs have gone all-in over the last several years.

CLEVELAND (AP) - Game 3 of the NBA Finals drew 20.5 million viewers on ABC, an increase of 22 percent from last season.

LeBron James recorded a triple-double, Kyrie Irving scored 40 points and the Cavs broke scoring records while outperforming the NBA's most electrifying offense in a testy Game 4 filled with technical fouls on Friday night, beating the Warriors 137-116 and snapping their 15-game playoff winning streak.

But the challenge is far more hard this time, not only because of the bigger deficit but also given the sheer talent of a Warriors group looking to become the first National Basketball Association team to win a title without suffering a single postseason loss.

"You win a championship, then you lose one in heartbreaking fashion, you've pretty much seen everything at that point", explained Kerr.

"I don't want to relax", Durant said. Particularly as you go deeper, it gets tougher and tougher. People emotionally invested in seeing LeBron fail because they falsely believe it makes their guy look better (these people love the "count the ringzzzzz" argument).

Kevin Durant made his, a silky-smooth three-pointer over a late-closing LeBron James that all but sealed the biggest win of the Golden State Warriors season, a stone-cold display of nerves and belief. No NBA team has ever recovered from a 3-0 hole in the playoffs.

"I don't think that our careers are the same as far as changing teams", James said. I put the time in every year to get better, to work on your game and to be ready for those kind of moments'.

Through three games this series, the former league MVP is averaging 34 points.

That's right, Golden State was basically "zenning" out in their huddles with Game 3 of the NBA Finals on the line. Shaq (Shaquille O'Neal) and Penny (Hardaway), and we took care of business.

"Those guys have been unbelievable", said Warriors guard Klay Thompson. "But last year is last year, this year is this year". "They had the opportunity to go get two of us, and they did that in me and [Chris] Bosh, and then we were able to finagle a way to get Mike Miller because some of us took pay cuts, and got some other guys". Maybe he will. I don't know. And when I came back here, we built something again.

Durant needed just six seconds and four dribbles to travel the length of the court and knock down a pull-up three-pointer over LeBron James. And in Game 7, they combined for 53 points and pulled off the two most important plays in franchise history. And I try to do the same things. Cleveland lost 118-113 to hand the Warriors a 3-0 advantage. But they have to do it four straight times to keep the crown that they brought home from California last June.

Magic Johnson hit Durant's mark with the "Showtime" Los Angeles Lakers in the 1966-67 season, but he only attempted two three-pointers the entire six-game series.

Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry have been a 1-2 punch the Cavs have had no answer for. A chance for a championship remains in their grasp.

"Well, I think it's just part of my calling to just go against teams in the midst of a dynasty", James said. It's time to put on a show for our fans in Oakland and the rest of the Bay. "Forget about that undefeated talk or whatever".
