Durant leads Warriors to 110-102 win vs Cavs

Jordan, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Kobe Bryant, and Dwyane Wade combined have 58 career games like that.

Behind a monster game from Kevin Durant, the Warriors overcame Cleveland's most balanced effort of the series along with poor shooting nights from Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the NBA Finals with a 110-102 win.

The Warriors are on dynasty's doorstep.

The Cavaliers, meanwhile, are in a hole that might as well be 6 feet deep.

Kevin Durant defends as Le Bron James passes the ball in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

It might be time to order some champagne from Napa Valley.

Thanks to Durant scoring 38, Golden State also beat Cleveland in Game 1 a year ago despite Klay Thompson shooting 3-for-16.

As always Durant stayed cool.

"I was just sitting there and he landed on my leg", Perkins said of the incident.

If he can, Cleveland's task of getting back into this series just got significantly harder - and it was already a tough task to begin with.

We'll guess this follows last year's script.

"No, not at all", he said.

" I just felt like especially the way he was missing shots tonight, he was struggling to shoot the ball, and the confidence that he had to pull that one up, and just the momentum of the game just kind of turned in our favor at that point..." To put that into perspective, Curry has drilled 56 three's so far this postseason, despite sitting out the Warriors' first six playoff games (he's appeared in 13 games). "Tomorrow I'll replay some plays and some moments and things of that nature".

Giuliani Says Trump Could End Russia Probe, Pardon Himself
On Friday, US President Donald Trump tweeted that the US government has spent over $17 million on a "Russian Hoax " investigation.

"It's a different game, different season", Durant said. "If they had (won) Game 1, I would feel a lot better about it".

Between James' groove and the spark of Cleveland's home crowd, there are enough reasons to think the Cavs can keep this close throughout the contest.

Smith's mistake in the final seconds of regulation of Game 1 was one of the biggest reasons for the team's loss.

"We know that we're capable", Love said of trying to win four straight.

These Cavs can't figure it out. Curry told Durant he didn't care who'd be the face of the Warriors, who'd receive more recognition, who'd sell more shoes.

Instead, we got to see the flawless distillation of what makes these Warriors an all-time great team: Because even when their opponent shuts down several key players, even when their opponent comes out with more energy and determination, even when perhaps the best player of all time has yet another triple-double, the Warriors can still control a game and get the win. But Kerr sounded more optimistic than ever that Iguodala will be able to play in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, which tips off at 6 p.m.

Kevin Durant torched the Cavaliers with a playoff-career high 43 points as the Warriors overcame a 13-point, first-half deficit to close in on their third National Basketball Association title in four seasons.

While it remains to be seen just how much an exhausting playoffs will catch up to James on Wednesday, the stars are aligning for another epic LeBron performance.

The Warriors had other plans. More importantly, who covers the spread, and will the final score hit the under or over? Running mate Klay Thompson shot 4-of-11. Green is second with 387, while James is third at 381.

He finished with 15 points on 7-for-11 shooting in 26 minutes.

In Games 1 and 2 in these Finals LeBron has shot 55.7 percent from the field and 45.4 percent from long distance. Only Derek Fisher (259), Tim Duncan (251) and Robert Horry (244) have made most postseason appearances.

Iguodala is averaging 7.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in this post-season. "His defense was strong, whoever he was up against — LeBron or someone else — and his toughness makes everyone out there better".

"That was Rodney Hood, man", James said. "For himself, that was just a huge moment".
