Cavs not looking to slow down pace of Finals with Warriors

"We all have to play better and we will".

"To me it's a miracle that it's even a possibility". "Game 3 has been a little rough for us historically - and especially in this building".

"I want to win just as bad as they do and obviously they probably got a bad taste in their mouth after what happened last year and we had one in our mouth last year from what happened the year before", James said.

The Warriors are in command of their NBA Finals clash with the Cleveland Cavaliers after winning the first two games of the best-of-seven series and are suddenly standing on the brink of history as the first team to go 16-0 in the playoffs.

Led by two-times reigning MVP Stephen Curry and four-times scoring champion Kevin Durant, the Warriors have an embarrassment of riches and find ways to score regardless of the pace of any particular game.

With Durant, the Warriors reached the NBA Finals a ideal 12-0 in the postseason after sweeping each of the previous three rounds and then found another gear against the Cavaliers. "Pass the ball five or six times and make the Warriors defend for longer stretches", he said, pointing to how the Warriors outscore the Cavaliers at an up-tempo pace.

Durant said he can feel the impact Golden State's third-quarter runs have had in sapping the will from their rivals.

A year after making history but falling one game short of an National Basketball Association title, the Golden State Warriors are focused on capturing the crown, not a possible unbeaten playoff run. Kevin Love averages 21 points and 14 rebounds. Kyrie Irving, is shooting 40 per cent, J.R. Smith has scored three points in two games and Deron Williams has missed all nine of his shots.

"Teams have great nights in this league, and it's the National Basketball Association, so that can happen a lot", Durant said.

Cleveland Cavaliers win in 6: 2.55%. So, to give ourselves a chance at even coming closer to thinking about that, we need to really, really just lock in and give every effort we have on (Wednesday) and how hard this 48 minutes is going to be to really seize control of this series.

"They just took it to us right from the beginning. But we've got to do a better job of just staying locked into these guys, being physical, staying on their bodies, and then, we can do a better job with the three-point shot".

Golden State Warriors win series: 92.64%.

The Cavaliers said they won't change their lineup or their schemes, insisting they want to play fast even though that's exactly the way the Warriors like it.

"We can learn that how thin the line is from success and failure", Curry said. "We can't turn the basketball over".
