Cleveland Cavaliers v Golden State Warriors

Watch: LeBron James goes off the backboard to himself in Game 3

It didn't take long for LeBron James to electrify the Quicken Loans Arena crowd in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Less than three minutes into the game, James gave Warriors centre JaVale McGee a pump fake at the top of the key before throwing himself a lob off the glass for a dunk.

Cleveland trails 2-0 in the series but LeBron's finish gave the Cavs an early 12-4 lead.
