Kevin Durant hit 43 points as he led Golden State Warriors to a narrow 110-102 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Durant added 13 rebounds and seven assists to his impressive statline as the Warriors improve to 3-0 in the Finals, leaving them one win away from back-to-back NBA titles.

Durant also becomes the first player in Warriors franchise history to score 40+ points in a road game of the NBA Finals.

LeBron James recorded his tenth Finals career triple-double with 33 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds for the Cavaliers in the losing effort; James has now passed Michael Jordan for the most career playoff games with 30+ points in NBA history.

Game 4 will be on Friday in Cleveland.
