Warriors remain unbeaten in the 2017 playoffs.
The Golden State Warriors will be going for a sweep of the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers, and a sweep of the entire post-season, on Friday night when they take the court for Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
Last night at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, the Cavs were in position to hand the Warriors their first loss of the playoffs and make it a 2-1 series… but then Kevin Durant happened.
KD, who scored 14 points in the fourth quarter, took over down the stretch and hit a dagger three pointer over LeBron James with 45.3 seconds left, setting up Golden State's 118-113 victory.
"All I was looking at was the bottom of the net," Durant said.
"I saw he (James) was playing his heels behind the 3-point line. I've been working on that shot my whole life. To see that go in, that was liberating, man. We've got one more to go."
No team in NBA history has ever come back to win a series after trailing 3-0. No team in NBA history has ever started a post-season 15-0.
As always, #NBATwitter was buzzing all throughout, and after, last night's thrilling Game 3. Check out some of the reactions and highlights below.

Congrats to Kevin Durant, MVP of the 2017 NBA Finals. Terrific last two minutes, KD.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) June 8, 2017
Cavs really just poured their hearts out in front of the world, got on their knees, told her "I love you", and she responded "thanks".— Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) June 8, 2017

*kevin durant dribbles into the room then hits a deep three to steal bedtime from me*
Steph Curry is averaging 28.7 PPG, 9.7 RPG and 9.0 APG in the Finals and might not sniff Finals MVP. Unreal.— Micah Adams (@MicahAdams13) June 8, 2017
Looking for a Cavs comeback? The Warriors last four-game losing streak was between Feb. 26 and March 2, 2013. (All on the road.)— Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) June 8, 2017
