If beat the Cavaliers in Game 4 in Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena, they will be the first team to go undefeated in an National Basketball Association playoffs.
One win away from 16-0 now, as we wait to see if LeBron and the Cavaliers have anything left after what happened to them over the last three minutes and nine seconds of Game 3 on Wednesday night.
If Kyrie Irving hits a 3, or if Durant's shot rattles out, or if LeBron steps up to defend that KD 3, we're talking about how the defending champions responded with their back against the wall.
LeBron refused to buy into the notion that he was worn out even though Kerr told he players to keep attacking because eventually James and Irving would tire. Not team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit.
And with a victory in Game 4 on Friday night, Golden State can exorcise those haunting demons from last June when the Warriors blew a 3-1 lead in the Finals to the Cavaliers.
Cleveland was up 113-107 after J.R. Smith drilled a 3-pointer with 3:09 left, and for the first time in the series - first time in the playoffs, for that matter - Golden State seemed something less than invincible. They will do everything they did in Game 3 that made it close, and probably do it with more desperation.
Kerr mockingly agreed, saying after the Warriors' shootaround that "the game gets worse as time goes on" and "players are less talented than they used to be".

James collected 39 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists, and Kyrie Irving added 38 points - and still, it was not enough. There will be a three-minute stretch where the Warriors incredible defense shuts the Cavs down, everything Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson throw up from 28 feet falls, and it will push the Warriors to an 8-10 point lead.
THE 2017 NBA Finals continue tonight in Cleveland with what could be the final game of the series between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. "It's what I think makes our team who we are".
Even the Cavaliers must at this point, after watching a late fourth-quarter lead evaporate in a 118-113 loss in Game 3 at Quicken Loans Arena. "We've got one more to go". I mean, guys are loving the game, our fans love the game.
LeBron is right. He is averaging a triple-double through the first two games of the Finals. The only game the 76ers lost in their 1983 championship run was to the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals.
"The only reason that came up is because we want to win this next game, and if we win that, that's 16-0", Draymond Green said.
Should the Warriors complete the sweep, it would be first sweep in the Finals since 2007, when the San Antonio Spurs also swept the Cavaliers.
