The Cavs were adamant they wouldn't change just for the sake of change, that they needed to play fast despite the fact an electrified style fits right in the Golden State wheelhouse. Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant led a last-minute comeback and the Warriors won 118-113. "You can tell he knows this is his moment".
Paul Pierce, who on Sunday called Durant the best player in the world, may be onto something.
Cleveland had looked like they might prevail when they were ahead by six points with three minutes to play, but Kevin Durant (KD) led the Warriors on an impressive 11-0 run to close out the game. They can complete the first undefeated postseason on Friday.
"But now that we're in this situation", Curry said, smiling, at the postgame podium well after midnight, "why not take care of business and finish the job".
Meanwhile, LeBron and the Cavs are 48 minutes from either being swept or perhaps laying the groundwork for the greatest comeback in National Basketball Association playoff history.
But Durant was not going to be denied.
And he continues to do his best work late.
Did Megyn Kelly legitimize this guy?
News programs have spent decades trying to assess how to grab headlines and stir up controversy without infuriating advertisers. He received mainstream attention after he was praised by President Donald Trump .
Green also made it clear, in a video last summer, that he did not talk to Durant during the 2016 playoffs.
But it comes by recalling the pain of last year's finals.
"So we made enough plays tonight to still win the ball game, but they made a couple more". I just didn't give it enough. Including the loss in Game 3, Cleveland is 3-7 SU and ATS in its last 10 games as a home underdog.
While LeBron's performance was execellent, it was Kyrie Irving who led all scorers with 40 points.
If not for Cleveland's Kyle Korver missing a three-pointer in the final minute of game three, the series would be 2-2. "We don't want to take the long threes and things like that".
"I don't think there was any concern or thoughts about history", Kerr said. Irving waved off that notion. That's just 27.3 percent.
Then, Durant and point guard Stephen Curry closed out the game with two free throws each. LeBron's last field goal came with 6:55 remaining. Irving finished with 38 points. "At times throughout the game I was exhausted, but that's just because I was playing as hard as I could".

May is holding talks Thursday with other Northern Ireland political parties amid warnings the expected DUP deal will undermine the peace process.
There is nothing to suggest that Cleveland can avoid the sweep.
With their 15th consecutive victory, the Warriors have the longest postseason streak for any team in the four major professional sports. J.R. Smith finally got started.
But it's the one they had to have, and a series that wasn't living up to its hype and seemed headed for a quick conclusion is California bound for game five on Monday night (Tuesday AEST).
"I said it after we won the Eastern Conference finals that we're getting ready for a juggernaut", LeBron James said during Wednesday's postgame press conference.
Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr thought the Cavs - James and Irving in particular - may have gotten exhausted. That's when Golden State's Durant got a second wind. "He's been an unbelievable player in this league for a long time".
Over the years, Cavs-Warriors has become the NBA's best rivalry, and this year's lopsided Finals most likely won't help that.
