LeBron James and Kyrie Irving combined for 77 points in game-3 of the NBA Finals. It still wasn't enough for the Cleveland Cavaliers to stop Kevin Durant and his Golden State Warriors from beating the Cavs 118-113.

Cleveland has their backs against the wall. The chances of the Cavs winning 4 in a row over this Golden State Warrior team, is slim. James said the Warriors have a lot of fire-power. The most he has ever faced in his NBA career.

Cleveland had the lead with minutes to go, and it looked as though they let their guard down. The Cavs let the Warriors go on an 11-0 run late in the game, and this put the nail in the Cavaliers coffin.

The only other Cavalier to get into double figures scoring last night was JR Smith, who scored 16 points.

The Cleveland defense can't find a solution to stopping Durant. If they do stop him, then they have a problem stopping Curry from hitting the 3 pointers at will.

If there is one thing I've learned about this Cavaliers team, it's never to say never. But coming back from a 3-0 lead by the Warriors may be a mountain that's too high to climb.

The Cavaliers will host the Warriors in game-4, on Friday night. If the Warriors win game-4, they will have made it through the play-offs and the finals undefeated. I thought for sure the Cavs were going to pull off a victory last night, but I guess that was wishful thinking on my part.

LeBron and Kyrie did what they could, but they needed some more help from some of their teammates. It will be interesting to see how they play in game-4.

I have a feeling this one will be an all out war.
