"He's been an wonderful player in this league for a long time, and he senses this is his time, his moment, his team".
With their 15th straight win, the Warriors have the longest postseason streak for any team in the four major professional sports.
The Cavaliers might have beaten anybody else the way they played, just as they did in Game 3 of last year's Finals and as they did while rolling into the Finals with a 12-1 record. For the Cavaliers, a win would be the first step toward becoming the first National Basketball Association team to overcome a 3-0 deficit in the Finals.
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.
The Warriors are now within one game of taking the National Basketball Association title with an unprecedented flawless run through the playoffs.
The Warriors thought they were carving out their place in history when they set a record with 73 wins last season. "We missed shots", he said.
Eurozone growth revised up to 2-year high
Asian stocks benchmarks were mostly edging Thursday as investors parsed economic data and awaited market-moving. The Euro has been tight against the Pound and US Dollar today, ahead of a major Eurozone announcement.
Smith had been a non-factor in the Finals, having not made a basket since scoring the first points of Game 1, but hacked or not, he finally got his act together Wednesday.
Curry hit a layup and after both James and Irving missed for the Cavs, Durant dropped his 3 - a shot that could be the one most remembered in this magnificent run by the Warriors.
"I'm human, as well as my teammates, and to lay it all on the line like that, you want to come out on the winning side", Irving said. "Kyrie was playing well, the game was on the line, so I made a decision to stick with those guys, being at home, down 0-2". "I've been working on that shot my whole life". To see that go in, that was liberating, man.
And in Game 3, no one gave more support for James than Irving.
Irving bounced back from a rough Game 2 with 38 points, including a couple of dazzling layups where he juked around multiple Warriors.
And maybe fatigue played a part in the Warriors' rally, though James didn't think so even after playing 46 minutes. "I've played against some great teams, but I don't think no team has had this type of firepower".
Real Madrid reject Premier League bid for James Rodriguez
Despite this Wenger has made his first signing with Sead Kolasinac agreeing to join the club from Schalke on July 1. Indeed, it is suggested that Arsenal have made an official bid to try and lure Rodriguez to the Emirates.
Klay Thompson led Golden State with 21 points in the first half, sinking 5-of-7 from 3-point range, while Durant added 16 and Curry 14 off 4-of-6 3-point shooting.
Durant, though, was not going to be denied.
The 7-footer finished 10 of 18 from the field with eight rebounds and four assists.
Cleveland took its first second-half lead of the series early in the second half and led by five after three quarters. The heat-seeking missile found the bottom of the net to give the Warriors a one-point lead.
They look ready to play for many more. But history turned to infamy when they blew a 3-1 lead to the Cavaliers, the biggest collapse in NBA Finals history. Golden State's only competition is with Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan and the Bulls, and other great teams from the past.
