Durant shoots down Cavs with long 3 - again

LeBron James: Winner of NBA finals won’t be going to the White House

With their 3-0 series lead, the Warriors are one win away from securing their second National Basketball Association title in as many years since adding Durant in free agency in the summer of 2016.

James landed badly going for a rebound early in the second quarter and limped on his right ankle, but the four-time NBA Most Valuable Player kept playing and helped keep the Cavaliers in contention in the second half.

But if the Cavaliers want James to remain with the wine and gold, they'll need to pour out everything in Game 4 and work their way up from there.

Iguodala was injured in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets.

"Obviously, from a talent perspective, if you're looking at Golden State from their top five best players to our top five players, you would say they're stacked better than us".

Last June, after losing Game 3, Cleveland bounced back to win Game 4 in convincing fashion, 137-116.

Durant finished with 43 points, 13 rebounds and seven assists and pretty much put to rest any question about the 2018 Finals MVP.

"That was unbelievable what he did out there tonight", Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters.

"You know, I just tried to make sure that we came out and didn't foul a three-point shooter or didn't give up a wide-open three or got too excited about that play".

Having similarly delivered at this stage previous year, Durant has spent the last 12 months dodging questions about whether he will ever top his 2017 display, and he now plans to do the same when asked to analyse his latest performance. "Kevin Durant was my answer", James said. "It's nearly like playing the Patriots".

They lead the final series 3-0, and no side in history have come back from such a deficit. "Bitch ass." Perkins, who was teammates with Durant during their days with the OKC Thunder, has not suited up at all during the NBA Finals.

LeBron James and the Cavaliers just happened to be on the wrong end of it.

The Warriors won despite a 3-of-16 shooting performance from Stephen Curry. "I definitely think about that from time to time". "I don't know how many minutes he'd be able to play".

"For me, tonight will be tough", James said. And then you've got a guy in Klay (Thompson) who could easily be on a team and carry a team, score 40 in a quarter before.
