A triple-double from LeBron James was not enough as the Golden State Warriors moved within one win of a second consecutive NBA Finals victory. The Cleveland Cavaliers moved swiftly out the blocks in the third game of the best-of-seven series, racing to a double-digit lead in the first quarter and taking a six-point lead into half-time.

But the Warriors rallied and were helped to a 110-102 win by 43 points from Kevin Durant, as the side took a 3-0 series lead. Durant effectively sealed the win with a three-pointer with less than 60 seconds left to play, while Steph Curry could not live up to his form in Game 2 as he only made one out of 10 three-point attempts.

James led the scoring for the Cavs with 33, adding 10 rebounds and 11 assists at the Quicken Loans Arena. Golden State's first chance to wrap up the title will come tonight at the same court.
