Warriors beat Cavaliers in Game 3 of NBA Finals, take 3-0 series lead into Friday's Game 4

The Golden State Warriors continued their historic unbeaten romp through the NBA postseason, winning 118-113 in Game 3 of the Finals against the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

Game 4 is Friday on ABC7.

Kevin Durant made a go-ahead 3-pointer with 45 seconds left to give the Warriors the lead.

Durant scored 31 points and Klay Thompson had 30 for the Warriors, who improved to 15-0 in the postseason and are on the brink of the first undefeated finish in the NBA. Stephen Curry had 26 points, 13 rebounds and six assists.

LeBron James had 39 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists for the Cavaliers, and Kyrie Irving added 38 points. Blown out in the first two games, the Cavaliers were much better in Game 3, but just not good enough to beat a team that could go down as one of the best ever.

The Warriors have already made history this postseason. Their 15-0 record makes them the first team to go on such an unbeaten playoff streak in any of the major sports.
