Warriors look to finish off sweep of Cavaliers

Unlike the first two games of the series, the Cavs stayed competitive through most of Wednesday's Game 4 until the Warriors went on a late 11-0 run in the fourth quarter to seal the deal.

As this best-of-seven series moves to Game 4, scheduled for tomorrow night in Cleveland, the only question left seems to be whether the Warriors can become the first team in N.B.A. history to finish the playoffs with a 16-0 record.

LEBRON James is not one to shy away from a challenge and says he and his Cleveland Cavaliers will not roll over to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals despite the long odds they face.

The Golden State Warriors have beaten the Cleveland Cavaliers to take a 3-0 stranglehold on the NBA Finals.

James and Irving were relentless in the second half and it appeared they had done enough to get Cleveland over the top and perhaps back in the series. No team in National Basketball Association history has rallied back from a 3-0 deficit in the championship round.

Now Cleveland, which past year became the first team to recover from a 3-1 Finals deficit, faces historically long odds again.

Visceral's Star Wars Won't Be Showcased at E3 2017
It appears to be a sci-fi action-RPG, a sort of fresh start after EA elected to bench the Mass Effect series earlier this year. The Battlefield 1 In the Name of the Tsar expansion was given a September release date during the pre-E3 2017 EA Play event.

The first two games of the 2017 NBA Finals have gone the way of the Golden State Warriors.

But Cleveland's LeBron James admitted his side would have to play a flawless game on Friday to avoid being on the wrong side of a new landmark.

"Even when you're playing well, you got to play A-plus-plus, because they're going to make runs and they're going to make shots and they got guys that's going to make plays", James said.

LeBron James shook off a knee-buckling blow to the chin and every Golden State shot while scoring 39 and Kyrie Irving added 38 for the Cavs, who took a 113-107 lead with 3:09 left on J.R. Smith's 3-pointer.

"You can tell, he knows this is his moment", Kerr said. However, both played more than 44 minutes and, by the end, they were spent. This is the same LeBron who led the Cavs back from a 3-1 deficit in last year's NBA Finals, so maybe he knows what he's talking about.

Somehow, with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving giving the Warriors their best punch, the Cleveland Cavaliers ended up being knocked senseless by Kevin Durant over the last three minutes. Although, he didn't deny contacting KD, saying, "I think everyone in the world talks to their friends".

Firefighter severely burnt in Knysna fire
Via twitter , many people have been volunteering their homes and cars for those leaving the area of the blaze. Strong winds and billowing smoke made it hard for the military to use helicopters to help put out the fires.

"Obviously it's a dramatic situation to be in, but it is what it is, we've got to get ready for game four".

The Warriors lead the Finals three games to none and are 15-0 in the postseason.

"The bigger thing is that we got two stops after I made that shot", Durant said.

Irving, meanwhile, scored a career playoff high 26 points in the paint on 13-for-16 shooting.

In Game 3, Green aroused some concern when he began complaining about a foul call to a referee and Curry did the same.
