CLEVELAND -- Kevin Durant pushed the Golden State Warriors to dynasty's doorstep. LeBron James may be at the exit door. Durant scored 43 points, draining a long 3-pointer in the final minute to cap his magnificent performance, and the Warriors beat James and the Cleveland Cavaliers, 110-102, in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night to move within a victory of a sweep, their second straight title and third championship in four years. No team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit in the NBA playoffs. It might be time to order some champagne from Napa Valley. And Cleveland could be down to one final game with James, who recorded his 10th triple-double in the finals. The three-time champion can opt out of his $35.6 million contract and test free agency this summer, and it may be time for the 33-year-old to find a team capable of beating the Warriors. These Cavs can't figure it out. CBSSports.com's Kyle Boone writes, "There will be endless banter about where free-agent-to-be LeBron James … [Read more...] about LeBron facing final game with Cavs after Warriors’ Games 3 win?

#RugbyWorcs (@RugbyWorcs). Kicks cost us the win, but considering changes to the side, which affected our attacking flair, I thought we did well. Fantastic game to watch! Holiday (@comeonuwarriors). Poor second half and out sang at home. No point in going to the game and not encouraging your team. Geoff Shaw (@gshawisme). Good first half. Didn’t get decision at end of first half to kick for posts when 10-metres out and a man up. Would’ve put a bit of daylight between teams going into second half. Martyn Pattinson (@Bigchap27). Played well in the first half but were well and truly bossed in the second. Enjoyable game, with the Connacht supporters adding greatly to the atmosphere. John Hall. Wasn't a bad game. I think we took them by surprise in the first half. They didn't out play us in the second half – they clearly out classed us. The boys played a good game overhaul. Stephean John Taylor. We are what we have always … [Read more...] about Warriors’ fans’ reaction to 24-24 draw with Connacht
