LeBron James and Co lead 86-65 at half

Curry said the Warriors will be ready to answer the Cavaliers raising their game. He'd do it, too.

"He was pretty down about the shot attempt that he got", James said. I don't care. It's great for our league.

"We have championship DNA", said James, who broke Magic Johnson's record with his ninth triple-double in the Finals. The Cavaliers shot 24-of-45 from three-point range, setting a finals record for three-pointers and ending one shy of matching the league's all-time record. "I played against some great teams, but I don't think no team has had this type of firepower". "It happens. It's sports". Both guys played tremendous games, really did some wonderful things, one-on-one, making shots, and then they got a lot of contributions from others, too. You can talk all you want but I'm definitely going to bark back. James rested for the first 97 seconds of the fourth quarter but two quick Warriors' three-pointers hastened his return as Golden State surged within 115-104.

Cavs star guard Kyrie Irving felt that his teammates gave all they got.

The Cavs overcame a 3-1 deficit a year ago: Before the Cavs overcame that hole the previous 32 teams had all lost. But except for an exaggerated yawn before taking the first question, James was upbeat, satisfied that he has done everything within his power to slow the Warriors, who have toyed with the field for weeks.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue was part of the 2001 Lakers who entered the Finals 11-0 (the first round was best-of-five). This time around, it feels more secure.

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.

I didn't touch on the fantastic defense played by Cleveland or their uncharacteristic poor shooting, in which they shot 40-90 on field goals and 12-44 from behind the arc in Game 3.

Green told Lowe that after their painful Game 7 loss to the Cavaliers in Oakland previous year, Durant was one of the people he called while sitting in the parking lot. After the teams won a finals apiece over the last two years, the Warriors are primed to win the trilogy. They're going to be wanting a win from their team.

"Now that you can look ahead to Friday, all our focus is on that".

LeBron James scored 39 and Kyrie Irving added 38 for the Cavs, who took a 113-107 lead with 3:09 left on J.R. Smith's three-pointer. "We didn't let a call we didn't like or a turnover or a missed assignment linger over to the next play". "But we look forward to the challenge". But history turned to infamy when they blew a 3-1 lead to the Cavaliers, the biggest collapse in NBA Finals history.

"And then to come out on top, and to see Durant be the one to make what is a huge shot..."

As a team, the Cavs went 6-for-23 from the field (.261), including 3-for-13 on 3-pointers (.231), while being outscored 29-19 in the fourth.
