Durant-led Warriors rally for 3-0 NBA Finals lead

Durant-led Warriors rally for 3-0 NBA Finals lead

The series will stay in Cleveland for game four.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant (35) reacts in the closing moments against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 3 of basketball's NBA Finals in Cleveland, Wednesday, June 7, 2017.

Kevin Durant scored 31 points, Klay Thompson had 30 and Stephen Curry put in 26 as the Warriors took a 3-0 series lead and extended their postseason win streak to 15, the most by any team in any major American sport.

Kevin Durant was the biggest prize of last year's offseason and on Wednesday he showed why the Warriors were so keen to get him, draining the shot of his career to put Golden State on the cusp of an unprecedented flawless postseason. His next two games: 34 and then a masterful 41-point whopper. "Pass the ball five or six times and make the Warriors defend for longer stretches", he said, pointing to how the Warriors outscore the Cavaliers at an up-tempo pace.

No team in National Basketball Association history has overcome a 3-0 deficit in The Finals. They are 15-0 and will trying to finish the NBA's first flawless postseason with a victory over Cleveland on Friday in Game 4. "I played against some great teams, but I don't think no team has had this type of firepower". "I don't even really care".

Somehow, the Cavaliers have to change all that.

They did a year ago, coming home after losing the first two by a combined 48 points and beginning the turnaround with a 120-90 rout in Game 3.




"She had a great idea for me", he said. Steve Kerr spoke about deliberately forcing James and Kyrie Irving (who was very, very good for most of the game) to exhaust as much energy as possible, knowing that they couldn't keep up that pace the entire time.

Cleveland was led by James with 39 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists. It was the second time in the postseason they committed at least 20 turnovers, and yet they scored at least 120 points in both games. That was mainly due to LeBron giving open looks for Smith, Irving, Kevin Love, Channing Frye and Kyle Korver. Golden State won 118-113. "We all have to play better and we will". If somebody is struggling, they can just find someone else with their precision ball movement. With Mike D'Antoni and James Harden at the helm for years to come, we should not see too much change to the dynamic offense. They were lucky and smart enough to pull it off, more power to them. "And we have done a great job of getting everyone involved and making sure that everyone feels comfortable, but now we need everything and everybody". That gave the Warriors a lead they held the rest of the way.

"I don't know", James said.

"Teams have great nights in this league, and it's the National Basketball Association, so that can happen a lot", Durant said.

"When you watch it, it doesn't necessarily seem as bad because you understand that the things that you can't control", he said. They won a championship, and previous year it was the greatest regular-season team we had played, probably one of the best postseason teams that everybody's ever seen as well, but we were just able to overcome that.

The stutter-stepping, freaky-dribbling, unapologetic shooter who gave Golden State nightmares last summer and drilled the biggest shot in franchise history right between Curry's eyes is bringing only flashes right now.
