LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers stormed back into the NBA Finals with a dominant 120-90 victory over the defending champion Golden State Warriors on Wednesday (9 June) that cut the series deficit to 2-1.

“We weren’t ready to play. Obviously they just punched us right in the mouth right in the beginning. We were turning the ball over like crazy. Soft. We were extremely soft to start the game and they set the tone,” Warriors’ forward Draymond Green told reporters after the game.

James, who called the game “do-or-die” for his team, scored a game-high 32 points and Kyrie Irving added 30 as the Cavaliers breathed new life into a series that had looked headed for a quick finish after a lopsided opening two games.

Cleveland, well aware that no NBA team in history has ever come back from an 0-3 series deficit to win in seven games, got off to a fast start and led the entire way to keep alive its hopes of avenging last year’s Finals defeat to the Warriors.

NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry had a night to forget with 19 points on 6-for-13 shooting for the Warriors. Game Four is on Friday (10 June) in Cleveland.
