NBA Finals: Golden State Warriors move one win away from record

Kevin Durant scored 31 points for the Warriors, who have the opportunity on Friday to become the first team to go unbeaten en route to a title.

Cleveland led by six points with three minutes to play but Durant led an impressive 11-0 run to secure the win.

No team has come from 3-0 down to win an NBA play-off series in 126 attempts.

Only eight teams have swept their opponents 4-0 in the NBA Finals – the last was San Antonio Spurs against Cleveland in the 2006-07 season.

Last season, Golden State eclipsed Michael Jordan’s 1996 Chicago Bulls to set a new NBA record with 73 wins in a regular season.

This term they have become the first team from the United States’ four major professional sports leagues – the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL – to win 15 successive post-season games.
