"But we are here, we're more focused on what happened previous year like in terms of we were up 2-0 and we came here and the series shifted".

What's your prediction for tonight's game and/or the series? "We have won a lot of games playing the way we play, so we're not going to change".

"I want to win just as bad as they do and obviously they probably got a bad taste in their mouth after what happened last year and we had one in our mouth last year from what happened the year before", James said.

With Durant, the Warriors reached the NBA Finals a ideal 12-0 in the postseason after sweeping each of the previous three rounds and then found another gear against the Cavaliers.

"Drive and closeouts is one of their weaknesses, so we've got to do a better job of shooting the three, but if it's not open, driving and closeouts, and then, making the extra pass and finishing at the rim".

Haunted by memories of a momentum-swinging flop a year ago, the playoff unbeaten Golden State Warriors adopted a cautious tone on the eve of Wednesday's third game of the NBA Finals.

"We have to take care of home court", Cavaliers forward Kevin Love said.

"Tomorrow night's a pivotal game and can really swing the momentum of this series if we're not ready to play", Warriors forward Klay Thompson said. Otherwise, they would be allowing Golden State to have even more confidence.

England has been on edge since May 22, when a suicide bomber killed 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert at the Manchester Arena. Gerard Vowls, 47, told The Guardian newspaper that he saw a woman being stabbed by three men at the south end of London Bridge.

The Warriors committed 20 turnovers in Game 2 but simply shook that off with an NBA Finals-record 18 3-pointers in a 132-113 romp. If somebody is struggling, they can just find someone else with their precision ball movement. "Understand that they have a unique opportunity to make us that much better, and for a majority of this season it's been on myself, Bron and K-Love's shoulders".

"We can learn that how thin the line is from success and failure", Curry said.

Golden State Warriors win in 4: 31.17%.

"Teams have great nights in this league, and it's the National Basketball Association, so that can happen a lot", Durant said.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue confirmed that he would not be changing his starting line-up in Game Three despite suggestions he would start Iman Shumpert over J.R. Smith, who scored just three points in two games. With this team, you can't relax at all.

numberFire has published its odds for the Finals outcome and have increased the Warriors' chances of sweeping the series - and completing the postseason undefeated - to 31.17%.

But the sting from last year's loss has the Warriors lingers.

"Game 3 has been rough for us historically, and especially in this building", Curry said. "We need to really, really just lock in and give every effort we have on tomorrow and how hard this 48 minutes is going to be to really seize control of this series".
