NBA Finals 2017: LeBron James in awe of juggernaut Warriors 'firepower'

After the warp-speed Golden State Warriors overran the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first two games of the NBA Finals, with Durant averaging 35.5 points in the wins, one of the trending topics has been whether James is being worn down in trying guard the 7-footer.

With a few minutes remaining in the game, the Cavaliers looked like they would close the gap to 2-1, but collapsed in the final few minutes, unable to make a shot.

After a war at Quicken Loans Arena, Curry and company will have to reload with only one day of rest before meeting their rivals again for Game 4 of the series on Friday at 9:00 p.m. EST.

After the 118-113 defeat, James conceded that the Warriors boast of the "most firepower" he has ever seen during his illustrious National Basketball Association career.

"It's probably the most firepower I've played in my career. I played against some great teams, but I don't think no team has had this type of firepower", James said after Wednesday's loss.

In fact, the Warriors outscored Cleveland 29-19 in the fourth quarter, with the majority of that coming in the waning minutes of the game.

Previous year the Cavaliers became the first team to win a title after trailing the Finals 3-1 when they beat the Warriors 93-89 in the deciding game.

Interestingly, LeBron James and Kevin Durant only garnered the most search interest in one state, while Draymond Green was most popular across the USA coming in with a total of nineteen states. But those efforts didn't prove enough as the Warriors kept chipping away before their final quarter explosion.

Green, who is a power forward, was named to the NBA All-Defensive Team and won his first NBA Championship with the Warriors in 2015.
