Cleveland Cavaliers bounced back from losing the opening two games of the NBA Finals with a crushing 30-point win over the Golden State Warriors in Ohio on Wednesday night.

The NBA's Eastern Conference champions won Game 3, 120-90. Game 4 takes place in Cleveland in the early hours on Saturday morning. 

The Cavaliers never trailed in the game, and pulled away in the third quarter after leading by by only eight points at half-time.

Kevin Love missed the game for the Cavaliers through concussion, but didn't seem to be missed as three home players outscored Steph Curry, who ended at the top of the scoring charts for Golden State.

LeBron James (32 points) and Kyrie Irving (30) were the game's top scorers, as JR Smith chipped in with 20 points. The game is the third of the series which has been won by at least 15 points.

Before the game, LeBron James called it a "do or die" encounter. The team certainly showed up. An interesting Game 4 awaits.
