Durant exceeding Warriors expectations in NBA Finals

Durant exceeding Warriors expectations in NBA Finals

Last year, the Cavaliers went 3-0 SU and ATS when facing elimination to come from behind to defeat the Warriors.

He collected 39 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, and Kyrie Irving added 38 points - and, still, it was not enough. "But I think that we just stayed with it, and our defense finally kicked in". Three of their best players were already drafted, so they were able to hold on to them because they own the Bird rights, if everybody knows the [collective bargaining agreement].

Undoubtedly the presence of Durant makes Curry and the other Warriors better. (They the real MVPs.) I'll take a red-eye that night and, God willing, land in The Land in plenty of time for Game 4 as the Warriors celebrate their fourth consecutive postseason sweep.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that Durant has played with objective throughout the series.

While the Cavaliers snatched defeat from the jaws of victory last time out, they have been comprehensively outplayed and to turn it around will take a minor miracle.

The obvious reaction three games into an National Basketball Association finals the Golden State Warriors are nearly certain to win is that Kevin Durant is the series MVP.

Seven Finals and three championships later, James is facing the same fate.

"We want 16 wins".

"They made some shots and we didn't", Cavaliers small forward LeBron James said.

This term they have become the first team from the United States' four major professional sports leagues - the NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL - to win 15 successive post-season games. But all you need to know about James Wednesday is that he was +7 in his withering 46 minutes on the court. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving were otherworldly in Game 3.

"That's what we always talk about, we all just want to have some fun but play disciplined", said Durant.

Kevin Durant scored 31 points, seven of them in the closing minutes, and the Golden State Warriors beat Cleveland 118-113 Wednesday, seizing command of the NBA Finals and extending its undefeated playoff run in dramatic fashion. It was a stunning display of offensive pyrotechnics that dovetailed with the Cavaliers' late-game collapse, a disheartening result that nearly felt unfair, unjust, undeserved.

"I got out of the shower and my phone was buzzing". While the Warriors are arguably the greatest team ever assembled, it's usually not wise to assume longevity given how much things can change year to year.

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant faced plenty of backlash a year ago when he joined a ready-made title contender but has proven that he is not simply along for the ride as he closes in on a maiden National Basketball Association championship. "I mean, I think it's great". You have an opportunity to sign one of the best players, and you can do it, go ahead and do it. "I'm just trying to be solid for my team mates".

The Cavs' lead got as big as six but Thompson, looking like he was on his way to another 41-point game like his Western Conference finals-saving performance a year ago, put up 30 points and shot 6-for-11 from distance. Came down to the stretch, and they made some big time plays. We had a chance to do it, but we had had like a 12-day layoff, and Philly came in and it was like they were running 100 miles per hour.
