CLEVELAND -- Kevin Durant would not let LeBron James out do him.
Durant carried the Warriors much of the game and hit a dagger trey with 49.8 to play as Golden State rallied to defeat the Cavaliers, 110-102 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals in front of 20,562 fans at sold out Quicken Loans Arena.
Kevin Love hit two free throws for a 97-96 lead with about three minutes to play and Stephen Curry hit his first trey with under three minutes to play. From there, James hit a trey to cut the deficit to 101-100 with 1:55 to play. That was the closest the Cavs could get as Durant hit the long three to push the Warriors lead to 106-100.
