No questioning Durant's decision now as Warriors near title


They have not lost a single game in the playoffs and are 15-0.

Wednesday's Game 3 broadcast on ABC - the Warriors defeated the Cavaliers 118-113 - delivered a total live audience of 20,494,000 average viewers, making it the most-watched NBA Finals Game 3 ever on ABC. They will be physical. They will attack the paint. That, along with the numbers for average minute audience (440,700 viewers) and total minutes streamed (76,680,000), were all record for a Game 3 of any NBA Finals.

A one-team dominance is not good for the National Basketball Association.

Cristiano Ronaldo believes winning the Champions League for the fourth time is as sweet as his first with Manchester United . The last season was also very cool.

However, the Warriors have their own motivation: perfection. After Cleveland closed within 80-68, Golden State went on a 10-0 run to make it 90-68 with 1:28 remaining in the quarter.

The 2015-16 Warriors had every reason to think they could do it all: Break the regular season record for wins set by Michael Jordan's 1995-96 Chicago Bulls, barrel through the playoffs, defend their crown, go down as a historically great team and be well on their way to a basketball dynasty. Before the series, Warrior coaches stressed the importance of protecting the glass against the bigger Cavaliers. Smith came into Game 3 having totaled three points in the first two games. Will the Cavaliers' players shoulders slump a little? Will the fans go quiet in Quicken Loans Arena? Will there be a sense of inevitability that overtakes them? I would not be surprised. He'll need another player to leave something on the table, and sacrifice, for him to compete against the Warriors (or the Spurs) every year. Two trends have been well documented through this series. They entered the 2000-2001 Finals 11-0 due to the then best-of-five format but then dropped Game 1 to the Philadelphia 76ers. Second, because of the extra minutes he's on the court and the insane workload at both ends, LeBron is wearing down in the second half. The 13.4 rating is 14 percent higher than the 11.8 rating for Game 3 of last year's NBA Finals.

But the fact is that the Warriors benefited from a combination of factors - them drafting Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green and hiring Coach Steve Kerr and General Manager Bob Myers and the new television deal leading to a one year jump of roughly $24 million in the salary cap - that allowed them to sign Durant as a free agent while keeping their core intact. I refuse to let that happen again. It doesn't matter how we get there. "But right now, our season's on the line, and we just have to play". It's just gonna continue I completely agree and I do not think it's definitely West Bank Rick what's going on you're on W Google Talk about LeBron Lacey is it tarnished at all by going down and if the if the cavaliers get swept by the warriors. Attitudes were sour and bodies still sore from a rugged and riveting game, the Cavs did their best to put on courageous faces and use the typical sports clichés about how you take it one game at a time and how the series isn't over until it's over. That does not bode well.

But after a draining loss to the Warriors in Game 3, the Cavs will have to guard against a letdown, not to mention Golden State's vaunted lineup that was built to dominate for years. He has earned it.

During his chat with the media on Thursday, Andre Iguodala seemed to hint that he, Steph Curry and Kevin Durant will re-sign with the Golden State Warriors.

"I feel like if we come in with the same energy, same effort and physicality as we did in Game 3, we will give ourselves a good chance to win", LeBron James said on Thursday.

"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".

Is that vindication for his much-maligned decision to join the Warriors?
