The Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Golden State Warriors with a 120-90 win in Game 3 at the Ohio Quicken Loans Arena at 9PM (Pacific Time) as they looked to secure four wins and reign as the NBA 2015-16 season champions.

Facing a 2-0 losing streak to the Warriors, the Cavaliers knew that they needed to conduct a massive counterattack; Game 3 was a do-or-die game.

Cleveland’s LeBron James emerged strong, scoring 32 points with 6 assists and 11 rebounds overall, overturning James’ inconsistent scoring in previous games. Kyrie Irving scored an impressive 30 points with 8 assists, while teammates J.R. Smith and Tristan Thompson scored a combined 34 points.

Golden Gate’s Stephen Curry surprised many by contributing a modest 19 points. Klay Thompson and Draymond Green scored a combined 16 points.

The NBA 2016 Championship continues with Game 4 on June 10  at 9PM Pacific Time in Cleveland.
