The Golden State Warriors took a 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals with a 118-113 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night.

Cleveland took a 113-107 lead on J.R. Smith's three-pointer with 3:09 left in the fourth quarter before Golden State finishing the game with an 11-0 run. Kevin Durant's three-pointer with 45 seconds left gave Golden State a 114-113 lead, and Steph Curry and Durant secured the victory with four free throws.

"All I was looking at was the bottom of the net," Durant said. "I've been working on that shot my whole life. To see that go in, that was liberating, man. We've got one more to go."

Durant scored 31 points for the Warriors. Klay Thompson added 30 points and Stephen Curry had 26. LeBron James scored a game-high 39 points and Kyrie Irving added 38 for the Cavs.

With their 15th straight win, the Warriors have the longest postseason streak for any team in the four major professional sports and no team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in NBA finals history.
