Steve Kerr believes Cavaliers fatigue helped the Warriors win

Irving missed an off-balance 3-pointer and Durant and Curry each made two free throws on the next Golden State possessions to seal Cleveland's fate.

The bad news for Cleveland: No team in the Finals have ever rebounded from a 3-0 series deficit to win the championship.

The Cavaliers lost the first two games by 41 points combined.

Game 3 of the NBA Finals drew 20.5 million viewers on ABC, an increase of 22 percent from last season. Now, they have to sweep the remainder of the series to retain the title. "You can tell, he knows this is his moment".

It's a dynasty that could continue for a few years, alongside the Warriors in the West, so long as James stays healthy, on a team loaded with talent like the Cavs, and in the league, period.

Teams may be able to survive the excellence of Curry and teams might be able to slow down Durant, but trying to harness both has proved impossible so far.

"I think I said it last night, it just looks like he understands this is his moment, this is his time", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Thursday. I definitely want to compete. It's not over. This is a insane game. So I don't want to relax or feel like it's over.

James, who left Cleveland in 2010 to join All-Stars Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade in Miami, said he doesn't begrudge the Warriors for signing Kevin Durant and adding him to a roster that already had Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

For the last three seasons, it's been Golden State and Cleveland in the Finals. How can I take these guys to the promised land?

"They're a juggernaut of a team", said Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, who scored 38 points in game three.

LeBron James quickly dismissed the idea that guarding Kevin Durant is taking a toll on him. They set an National Basketball Association record with nine 3-pointers in the quarter.

As you can see, James let go of what was clearly an alley-oop dish to Kevin Love. "Another challenge for us to get better and go against a great team".

And James has won at least one road game in 29 consecutive playoff series - a streak that's in danger of coming to an end if the Cavs don't make it to Game 5.

LeBron James says he doesn't have any problem with Golden State building a super team.

"They're a great team, but I think we're a great team also". There are plenty of National Basketball Association teams with one great player, but only two have an entire starting lineup of good/great players - Cleveland and Golden State.

Durant, though, was not going to be denied.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were so much better than in the previous two games.

The 7-footer finished 10 of 18 from the field with eight rebounds and four assists. "And so when we're all locked in and focused and playing aggressive, knowing that whoever has the ball will make a play, just try to keep it simple, something good's going to happen".

The Warriors ended the game on an 11-0 run in the final three minutes.

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

"We knew how good he was, but just how clutch he's been, how many big shots he's hit for us", Kerr said of the little extra he has seen.

When all is said and done this season, it's quite likely that he'll have an NBA Finals MVP trophy to take home in addition to his first NBA championship. Broke the record of 14 straight postseason wins held by the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins, who did it twice.

During a post-game interview with ESPN last night, Steph Curry was interrupted by a smiling Bubba Watson, who says hello and then slides out of the frame.
