The Dubs beat the Cavs in Game 3 Wednesday night in thrilling fashion. Kevin Durant sank a crucial 3-pointer in the final seconds, putting the Warriors ahead for good.

The final score was 118-113.

Durant finished with 31 points but said after the game there's still more work to do. "This is a crazy game, anything can happen. So I don't want to relax or feel like it's over. It's not. I'm just trying to enjoy this moment, try not to look into the future or the past, try to stay in the present and enjoy this moment for what it's worth and just keep pushing," he said.
