Cleveland Cavaliers not giving up against Golden State Warriors, says LeBron James

"We've got one more to go". The only question ahead of Friday night's Game 4 is whether or not they'll be the first team ever to be flawless in the playoffs. "I think it was we played a desperate team on their home floor, a great team, with great players, and they came out and handed it to us".

The 2017 NBA Finals will continue on Friday as the Cleveland Cavaliers host the Golden State Warriors for Game 4. Golden State's nine 3-pointers in the first quarter broke the previous Finals mark held by five teams, most recently the Warriors in 2015.

National Basketball Association star LeBron James knows it is not going to be easy to turn the series around this time, "Obviously it's a dramatic situation to be in, but it is what it is and we got to get ready for Game 4".

The Warriors, meanwhile, scored 11 unanswered points, including seven by Kevin Durant in the final 1:15. They don't own their own second-round draft pick until 2023, according to Real GM. They were lucky and smart enough to pull it off, more power to them. No other Cavalier attempted more than 10 shots in the game.

"We knew how good he was, but just how clutch he's been, how many big shots he's hit for us.it just looks like he understands this is his moment, this is his time", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on Thursday. They won in unbelievable comeback fashion in Game 3.

"We just felt like the way they play, Kyrie and LeBron had it going the whole game, but that's pretty taxing to go one-on-one the whole game", Kerr said.

"When I say his team, I mean it's not literally just his team, it's that we've got a group around him that can help him and create space for him with the shooting and the playmaking, and I think he's having the time of his life out there".

One win from his first championship and probably the NBA Finals MVP award along with it, Durant is the ideal player in the flawless place. I don't (attribute) us losing this game because we got exhausted.

They moved to the brink of that with a 118-113 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

"That was liberating right there", Durant said. It was the biggest blow to James the Cavaliers who fought incredibly hard throughout the night.

Cleveland had looked like they might prevail when they led by six points with three minutes to play but Durant led the Warriors on an impressive 11-0 run to close out the game.

Third, and as noted by LeBron, outside KD Warriors built this team the way the league hopes every team would build - they drafted well and developed their guys internally.

Down the stretch, Smith missed a long jumper, Kevin Love missed inside, Irving had a layup roll off the rim, James missed a jumper, Kyle Korver missed a corner 3-pointer, Irving missed his second-guessed, step-back 3-pointer, James had a 3-pointer blocked by Andre Iguodala and Love missed a meaningless three at the buzzer.

James, however, also rejected any notion that the Warriors are any hungrier than he and his teammates.
