BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The defending-champion Warriors can take a commanding 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals with win tonight in Cleveland. The action tips at 9 p.m.

Cavaliers aren't unfamiliar with this spot. As Celtics fans know all too well, Cavs rallied from that same deficit to beat the C's in seven in the conference finals.

Only 20 teams have ever recovered from an 0-2 playoff hole, but LeBron James led three of them.

"You know, it's my job to make sure that we're as focused, laser-focused as possible," James said. "Do my job and continue to instill confidence in my teammates until the last horn sounds. That's my job, that's my responsibility, that's my obligation, and I need to continue to do that--which I will."

James is averaging 40 points on 56 percent shooting, along with almost 11 assists and 9 rebounds per through the first two games of the series.

His group's also won eight straight at home, and Warriors star Draymond Green knows that's a tough place to play.

"We've been here, we know exactly the intensity that they're about to come out with," Green said. "We know those things, because we've played them four years in a row now."

Dubs are 4-and-4 in Cleveland during the finals the last three years.
