Two Warriors wins from perfection (and also the sweet release of summer)

Two Warriors wins from perfection (and also the sweet release of summer)

"Understand that they have a unique opportunity to make us that much better, and for a majority of this season it's been on myself, Bron and K-Love's shoulders".

Klay Thompson added 30 points and Stephen Curry had 26 for this California Dream Team now one win from its second title in three years.

The Warriors beat the Cavaliers in Game 3 on Wednesday, so Golden State's lead is 3-0.

The Warriors have a chance at becoming the first National Basketball Association team to run the table in the playoffs, and go 16-0.

The Warriors simply managed to play with superb sharpness and delightful dexterity to again put the lights out on the Cavaliers at the Oracle on Monday.

Let's face it: The Golden State Warriors look unbeatable right now!

None won as dominantly as this team, which has four versatile All-Stars - including two former league MVPs - in their prime.

Previous year in Game 3, LeBron and Irving combined for 62 points, and the Cavaliers won going away.

Stephen Curry leads Warriors to 2-0 Lead over Cavs
Considering the Warriors had out-scored the Cavs by an average of 12 points in the first two games, the turnaround was impressive. But the most important new member, the team's new superstar, Durant, can identify with what the Warriors went through.

Some people may argue their greatness, but James won't.

You never know when the dynamite got off, but Green sounded like a man of his word Sunday when he said, "I think I'm a pretty smart guy and I learned my lesson". "I played against some great teams but I don't think no team had this kind of firepower". The Golden State Warriors were as good during the game as guitarist Carlos Santana was playing the anthem before it.

The Warriors are 14-0 to start the postseason.

The Warriors thought they were carving out their place in history when they set a record with 73 wins last season. "We don't play slowdown basketball", Cavaliers forward LeBron James told reporters on Tuesday in Cleveland, site of the next two games. And while Jordan's claim to being the greatest of all time will always be valid since he did go 6-0 in the NBA Finals, James has proven that he deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as his Airness. "You know, it's a rhythm thing". We've got to get this one at home and then just keep building from there. "We need to take that mentality to Cleveland".

“Much more physical today than we were in Game 1. Even though the Cavs were the East's No.2 seed, they led the conference with a 31-10 home record, only going 20-21 on the road. We saw what happened previous year. Or will this be more of a repeat of the 2014 NBA Finals when the Spurs overwhelmed James' Heat team in a tremendous display of offensive prowess?

Kevin Durant wasn't wearing a Golden State jersey while his current teammates collapsed in last year's Finals.

Draymond Green's suspension for Game 5 was huge. Should the Warriors stay healthy and together - and it would cost them enormously in salaries and taxes - they should be a title threat every year.
