(AP) It took them falling behind, but the Warriors have finally started playing as they did in the first quarter.
Golden State has responded quickly after Cleveland took the lead by scoring nine straight points, and was back up by double digits with 5:11 remaining in the third quarter.
The Warriors got the game at a fast pace in the first quarter and led 28-15, but Cleveland slowed things down in dominating the second, then got the first two baskets of the third to take a 47-45 edge.
Golden State then got 3-pointers from Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green in its big run.
The Warriors are getting plenty of help from the Cavaliers, who have committed 17 turnovers that have led to 25 points.
(AP) Cavaliers coach David Blatt can sense the Warriors ceasing control.
In the last timeout, all Blatt was prodding and urging his worn-out team to make one last run.
Blatt kept saying, "There's a lot of game left. Don't put your heads down."
It doesn't feel like there's a lot of game left.
The Warriors are 57-0 this season when leading by at least 15 points at any point of a game.
