CLEVELAND AP - The Golden State Warriors haven't lost three straight games all season, and doing so now would force them to make the greatest comeback in NBA Finals history.
Teams with a 3-1 lead are 32-0 in the finals, according to information provided to the league by Elias. So the Warriors don't have to be reminded of the importance of Game 4 against Cleveland on Thursday night.
"I think we all know it's really urgent," guard Klay Thompson said. "No one wants to go down 3-1."
Cavaliers Coach David Blatt skewered on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
LeBron James has scored 40 or more in two of the three games while playing more than 47 minutes per game for an undermanned team. He appeared exhausted Wednesday, though that will be worth it if he can deliver the Cavaliers their first NBA title.
"You just try to give everything that you have to your teammates and live with the results," James said. "For me, I just try to put it all on the line to a point where win, lose or draw, you're satisfied with the outcome."
