LeBron lauds unrivalled Warriors firepower

Video: Kevin Durant toys with Cavs defenders as Golden State go 3-0 up

No NBA team had ever gone 12-0 in a postseason before these Warriors - not the Lakers, Bulls or any other legendary group - and no team has finished an entire postseason without a loss.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, left, dribbles past Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving (2) during the first half of Game 2 of basketball's NBA Finals in Oakland, Calif., Sunday, June 4, 2017.

ABOUT THE WARRIORS: Golden State has rolled to 14 consecutive postseason victories and seems even harder to beat with small forward Kevin Durant playing superbly and averaging 35.5 points, 11 rebounds and seven assists in the series.

Game 3 of the Cavs-Warriors series Wednesday delivered a 13.4 metered market rating on ABC, up 14 percent from Game 3 of the 2016.

The Cavaliers have pulled a Game 3 finals upset at their home Quicken Loans Arena in back-to-back years, beating the Warriors 96-91 as 2-point underdogs in 2015 and prevailing 120-90 as 1.5-point underdogs last year.

The Cavaliers, though, couldn't get far enough ahead in the fourth to get comfortable and the Warriors kept chipping into their lead before Durant's defining 3-pointer.

"Cleveland will come out with tremendous energy in the first quarter", Boyles said. "Last year, they dominated in the first quarter and first half, and I expect the same thing (Wednesday)". "It's probably the. most firepower I've played in my career".

"I didn't envision anything but just being around good people and getting better every single day". The Steph Curry-esque three-pointer on the next possession that put them up one, Durant grabbing the rebound and firing away from 26 feet before James could close the space.

Minute's silence for victims of Grenfell Tower blaze
The Grenfell Tower disaster is now the deadliest fire in mainland Britain since at least the turn of the last century. The Prime Minister said there had been "huge frustrations" on the ground as people struggled to find information.

Everyone holding out hope for a memorable NBA Finals after an unmemorable first two games is repeating the same refrain: These two teams have been here before.

"It's do or die".

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

"It's pretty one-sided on the Warriors at this point", said Matthew Holt, vice president of CG Technology sports book. He wants to see what's out there, what adjustments we could make to be better. "And we're not going to change just because we're playing Golden State". "I'm not a past person", James said.

If Golden State wins, the victory will cap an unblemished playoff run.

You can watch Game 3 across the TSN Network at 9pm et/6pm pt. Maybe Cleveland will be the 2nd team to rally back, but I doubt that.

Wouldn't 16-0 end the argument by proving that the Warriors are superior to their contemporary rivals by a larger margin than anybody else in National Basketball Association history? "Especially if the previous game went over by a lot, under in the next game would be like stealing money", he said. "I didn't talk to these guys when I made my decision and say we better make it to the Finals and be up in the series around this time, this exact date, or I'm not coming". The players are duping refs into making bad calls and it's embarrassing for the game. They also made 13 a game, second only to the long-ball-happy Rockets, giving them a unsafe extra dimension besides LeBron.
