They had survived in Oakland California at the Oracle arena, which had become one of the hardest places to win a game this 2014/15 NBA Season and with a 1-1 tie heading back to their own home court, there was no way the Cleveland Cavaliers were going to let their guard down and lose a game against the Warriors in Game 3.
The Cavs came out firing in the early going of the first quarter and punctuated their lead with a LeBron James dunk. Once again the Cavaliers gave the defensive duty of containing Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry to Aussie Mathew Dellavedova, and yes he once again performed brilliantly by harassing and slowing the Warriors guard down. The defensive assignments were so well executed by the Cavaliers in the early going that the Warriors could only score 37 points in the entire first half a playoff low.
LeBron James came close to a triple double (40 points/8 Assist/ 12 rebounds) but fell short by 2 Assists he however was the high point man of the night again with 40 points, as he led his team to yet another victory.
