Golden State is on the cusp of another National Basketball Association championship, holding a 3-0 series lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers going into Game 4 of the finals.

Golden State's Kevin Durant scored a game-high 43 points to carry his team to victory and a 3-0 series lead.

Cleveland's LeBron James delivered an spectacular two-handed slam dunk usually reserved for the NBA All-Star Game contest in the early moments of Wednesday's (Thursday in Manila) third game of the NBA Finals.

But if the Cavaliers want James to remain with the wine and gold, they'll need to pour out everything in Game 4 and work their way up from there. The Warriors also have above-average role players in 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston.

And for good measure, we asked him about the Golden State Warriors, too.

The difference Wednesday was the Warriors chipped away at the Cavaliers' lead and tied the score 26-26 on a pull-up jumper by Kevin Durant with 32.6 seconds left in the opening quarter.

Last June, after losing Game 3, Cleveland bounced back to win Game 4 in convincing fashion, 137-116. Durant scored 10 points in the third quarter.

"Just for him, just as a person, to be healthy and be able to play in The Finals now that we're here, I think that would mean a lot to him and give us an emotional boost as well".

"That was wonderful what he did out there tonight", Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters.

The Cavaliers quickly established the lead in the game's opening minutes, scoring on their first five possessions, which included back-to-back 3-pointers by Kevin Love and J.R. Smith to open the game.

And just like a year ago, he drilled it.

He's the sixth player all time to register at least 40 points, 10 rebounds and five assists on the road in the NBA Finals.

The Cavaliers had their chances in Game 1 and Game 3 of the series, but they came up short and are now on the verge of being swept to close out their season. "Top two best players in our league", said Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue. He finished with 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds. He's now about to be a two-time champion because he went to Golden State.

Game four is on Saturday (New Zealand time). Previous year we were up 2, and he pulled up pretty much right at the three-point line and got a great contest, but he made it.

"I was definitely excited", said Durant, who tends to try and keep emotions to himself. His ability to handle the ball, shoot the ball, make plays at his length, his size, his speed.
