NBA: After making a record nine three pointers in Game 2 of the NBA finals, Steph Curry went completely cold in Game 3, missing nine consecutive shots from beyond the arc.
UPDATE: Golden State are one half away from delivering a humiliating Finals sweep of rivals Cleveland, and a third NBA title in four years.
The defending champions lead 61-52 at the major break, with Steph Curry putting on a first-half shooting clinic.
The star guard has 20 points and is 4-6 from three-point range, including a dagger with five seconds to go before the break which extended the lead back out to nine points.

LeBron James has done his best to keep the Cavaliers in the contest, and keep their season alive, and has 16 points and five assists to lead his side in both categories.
He’s been supported by Kevin Love — who has nine points, but has shot just 2-10 from the field — and JR Smith, who added 10 points.
Andre Iguodala has broken out of his injury-enforced funk with an encouraging display — the former Finals MVP hitting three three-pointers to add nine points for the visitors.
The Warriors lead the series 3-0.
