Kevin Durant Sinks Cavs in Game 3 with Déjà Vu 3-Pointer

Kevin Durant Sinks Cavs in Game 3 with Déjà Vu 3-Pointer

Iguodala last played May 20 in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Rockets.

But this one was deeper than his dagger was a year ago - and it cut deeper as well.

Hood's point total was five better than Warriors All-Star Klay Thompson, who was 4-for-11 from the field - giving the Warriors' incredible backcourt a combined 21 points on 7-of-27 shooting for the game. "The room for error, you just can't have it". Soon, maybe Friday, maybe not until Monday, this team will have the same. Although the Warriors are 2-0 up, Durant pointed out that his team should not take the foot off the gas. And with Golden State already halfway to the four wins needed for another National Basketball Association title, his presence will make this comeback attempt by the Cavaliers in this series only more challenging. They have $86.9 million in salary commitments to six players next season before factoring in what an extension for Paul will add, per Spotrac.

They did it the hard way, without question.

James, who can become a free agent at the end of the postseason, could be playing his last game in Cleveland. "You can't have mistakes". You have be so attuned and razor-sharp and focused every single possession.

James had a triple-double.

Cleveland raced into a 16-4 lead in the first half, the highlight being James throwing a pass to himself off the backboard and finishing with a dunk. And he's still down 3-0. The Warriors clearly feel that they're a better team with him in the lineup, and that might be enough to give them the edge even if he's not 100 percent.

"That wasn't the same shot", James said. "That's what championship players do". "So, definitely a different year, just overall, personally with injuries, as a team with dealing with injuries, dealing with the kind of expectations that have been placed on us from the outside and the noise around us as a team".

They lead the final series 3-0, and no side in history have come back from such a deficit. "Some of those shots, I don't think anybody in the world but him could have made those shots". He's been an MVP, a Finals MVP, an Olympic gold medallist already. "Not many people say that about me", James told the reporter. Do we have to make more shots? "I knew my talent level couldn't get past Boston or San Antonio".

It may as well have been.

We all knew Golden State was better, and this series has done nothing to change that belief.

Considering that fact, statements made by James on Thursday morning offered a pretty legitimate cause for concern regarding James' uncertain future in Cleveland. He thought Curry's lone 3-pointer in 10 tries - one that put the Warriors up by four with 2:38 remaining - carried more weight, and he might have been right. The game. The season.
