The Golden State Warriors will try to capture their second Larry O'Brien Trophy on the road in three years when they visit the Cleveland Cavaliers as big chalk for Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday.

The Warriors kept their air of invincibility intact with a 118-113 Game Three victory that puts them on the brink of their second championship in three seasons.

Golden State still leads the best-of-seven series 3-1 with game five set for Monday in Oakland, California. At one point in the opening quarter, Durant accounted for 10 of Golden State's points in a row. Everybody is gravitating to how he's playing, shorter guys who can dominate the game the way he has the last couple of years.

No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit, and it doesn't appear any team is equipped to hang with these Warriors, who may go down as one of the best ever. They became the first team to triumph after falling into a 3-1 finals deficit when they beat the Warriors in seven games previous year. That achievement sort of became moot when they flopped and became the first team to cough up a 3-1 Finals lead. "It all comes down to this one game".

"There's no tomorrow. So we just have to play", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.

"But I can definitely appreciate the simple fact of him either reshaping his game or just sacrificing maybe some shots here, sacrificing having the ball in his hands all the time", James said. Not team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit.

"I've been working on that shot my whole life", said Durant, who has averaged 34 points through the first three games of the Finals.

"We thought we were going to win", James said.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (23) drives on Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) during the second half of Game 4 of basketball's NBA Finals in Cleveland, Friday, June 9, 2017. LeBron James shook off a knee-buckling blow to the chin while scoring 39 and Kyrie Irving added 38 for the Cavs, who took a 113-107 lead with 3:09 left on the clock after J.R Smith's three-pointer.

That night, as the Cavaliers celebrated at Oracle Arena, Green sat in the parking lot and made two phone calls, he told ESPN.com: One to Warriors general manager Bob Myers, urging him to sign Kevin Durant in free agency, and another to Durant himself, the likely Finals MVP this season if the Warriors can close the deal. "I just felt like I needed to be a part of it". "That was my very next call", Green said. "We just want a championship and I think we are very capable of finishing flawless".

"His mindset is I'm ready to take this shot because I haven't cheated the game". However, for the two minutes James took to the bench, Cleveland went -12, squandering all chance of a series-changing victory.

"So we'll see what happens". "I think I said it last night, it just looks like he understands this is his moment, this is his time".

"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. And obviously this team is built to be able to do that with the talent that they have", said James. The Warriors previously swept Portland, Utah and San Antonio.

One win from his first championship and probably the NBA Finals MVP award along with it, Durant is the ideal player in the flawless place.
