The Golden State Warriors are on the brink of winning the NBA finals with an unprecedented perfect record after a late comeback victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers gave them a 3-0 series lead.
The Warriors were trailing by six points with three minutes of game three remaining but Kevin Durant sent home a three-pointer with 45 seconds left on the clock to seal a 118-113 win in Cleveland.
The Warriors are 15-0 in the post-season and another victory in game four would see them become the first team to go through the play-offs unbeaten.
For the Cavs their plight is even worse than the one they faced last season, when they created history by becoming the first team to come from 3-1 down to win the best-of-seven series 4-3.
They will again have to rewrite the record books if they can recover this position, but with the Warriors seeking revenge for last year that will be some ask.
Durant led the Warriors with 31 points, with 30 from Klay Thompson and 26 from Stephen Curry as they close in on a second title in three years.
LeBron James scored 39 points for the Cavs, who did at least improve on the opening two games, but will be left to rue to a damaging last three minutes.
