LeBron not faulting Warriors for building powerhouse team

LeBron James reveals in video that his wife, mother didn't want him to return to Cavs

Last year, they broke new ground by becoming the first team to come back from 3-1 down in the finals, but the Warriors with Durant and a healthy Curry are a different beast.

The Warriors, who are on an National Basketball Association record 15-0 playoff win streak, could dethrone LeBron James and his teammates and become the first champions in league history to make an undefeated run through the playoffs.

Wednesday night's win ran the Warriors' record in the 2017 NBA Playoffs to a spotless 15-0, making them the first team in NBA Playoff history to win their first 15 games in a single postseason. No NBA team has ever rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series, let alone the Finals. It would have been understandable if James had been dour given that his hopes to win a fourth title and second straight with Cleveland evaporated in the closing minutes of Game 3. Golden State and Cleveland have now played five games this season, including the regular season. They will do everything they did in Game 3 that made it close, and probably do it with more desperation.

"They're going to get exhausted", Kerr recalled after the game, ESPN reports.

LeBron James scored 39 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and passed off nine assists while Kyrie Irving added 38 points to pace the Cavaliers, but James said he has never faced a "juggernaut" like the Warriors. "You can sense that", James said. So we have to play better and think about what's next, and that's the goal in front of us, is winning that 16th game.

In April, Under Armour CEO Kevin Plank was candid about sales of the latest signature shoe the company created for Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry. But this year, Golden State looks much different.

And on Wednesday morning, a different reporter found herself in a similar position after she asked LeBron if guarding Kevin Durant during the Finals is taking a toll on him and making him exhausted during the second halves of games.

"We know in that situation to get that man the rock". "I think I play with great length, and Kyrie's been hot all night, and I think that I just did a good job of not falling for any of his moves, because he's real shifty, and just stayed in front of him, and luckily he missed the shot". But then the Warriors scored the final 11 points to send the Cavaliers to their locker room - and the fans to the exits - in stunned silence. It's the first time the same two teams have met in the Finals for three consecutive years.

But he sarcastically responded to them Friday before Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers, saying they were right and "they would all kill us". "But that's pretty taxing to go one-on-one the whole game".

Kyrie Irving's 40 points led the Cavs.
