Warriors stun Cavaliers with late 11-0 run

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. The Warriors had seized a 3-1 lead on the Cavaliers only to have James lead the greatest rally in NBA Finals history, becoming the first team to win the championship after trailing 3-1.

Golden StateWarriors, powered by Kevin Durant's clutch scoring in the closing minutes, rallied to beat defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers 118-113 on Wednesday in the NBA Finals, moving one victory from the first flawless play-off run in league history. "It was like poetry just watching him take that [last] shot".

Then Kyrie Irving made the three-pointer that really won the championship for him and LeBron and the Cavaliers and Cleveland.

No team has come from 3-0 down to win an National Basketball Association play-off series in 126 attempts.

They all are, at this point - and it shows, as the Warriors seem determined not just to avenge last year's loss in the Finals but also leave an indelible mark in the process.

A year ago, 77 points combined from James and Irving wins the Cavs a game.

"Kevin Durant is a once in a lifetime player", Thomas said, "I don't think our league has ever seen a player like a Kevin Durant who is so unique".

"There have been times throughout my career where I just played teams that were just in the midst of something that can last for a long time".

"We just kept telling the guys, they're going to get exhausted", Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. Durant averaged 25 points a game during the regular season and has scored 38, 33 and 31 against Cleveland, leading the team each time.

"It was just ideal timing at the right moment", Iguodala said. In Game 3 they fought back, made it close again, even took the lead themselves.

The 2017 Warriors boast of four All-Stars and four-All NBA players in Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.

For all this while, the Golden State Warriors refused to look too far ahead. We will never know if the Warriors would have gone on to win the championship if Iguodala had made his shot in Game 7 previous year, when the Warriors were in the same kind of late-game freefall the Cavs were in late Wednesday night in Cleveland.

"But now that it's a legit possibility, one game away, I think you should think about it because you want to win the next game".

Durant came out hot in the first quarter, hitting two triples in the first 150 seconds. It's the first time the same two teams have met in the Finals for three consecutive years. And maybe, if the Cavs shoot better than 12-44 from three in Game 3, we're having a different conversation.

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