Kevin Durant: ‘We don’t want to play with the gods like that’

Open thread: Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Golden State Warriors NBA finals Kevin Durant names his top two players ever and neither of them are LeBron James
Cassandra Gardner | 08 June, 2018, 01:30

In Wednesday night's Game 3, finished just an hour before, James scored 33 points (in logging a 10th career National Basketball Association finals triple-double), limited Warriors star Steph Curry to just one three-point shot and still Cleveland lost, 110-102.

James, meanwhile, had 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.

Friday, June 8: Golden State at Cleveland, 9 p.m.

"That was incredible what he did out there tonight", Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters. ("You know, I had a pretty solid career before I hit that shot, I felt", Durant said.) He will be equally amused when he gets asked if the shot he made Wednesday will also be a defining moment.

No team has ever come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a series. He even had the highlight play of the series, a shot (which was really a pass) off the backboard to himself that he rebounded and viciously dunked. Cleveland shot 50 percent in the second quarter (13-for-26) which included three 3-pointers, and the Cavaliers pushed their lead to as many as 13.

Late in the game, Durant called for the ball on numerous occasions, clearly looking to seal the win. He was referring to Durant's clutch 3-pointer during the Warriors' 118-113 victory over the host Cavaliers in Game 3 of last year's Finals.

After some contentious calls in the first two games, the official Twitter account of the National Basketball Association referees tweeted during game three to confirm James' pass to himself off the backboard was legal. Love was second on the Cavs with 20 points, adding 13 rebounds. "We want to come out, respect the game and try to win this thing".

LeBron James and the Cavs trail the Warriors 2-0 for the third year in a row.

Cleveland fans weren't too happy Wednesday night after losing Game 3 of the National Basketball Association finals against Golden State. For the team, another title would solidify them as one of the greatest teams in National Basketball Association history, and for superstars like Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry, another ring will boost their already stellar all-time resumes and push them closer to the top of the mountain. "You know if you relax, they make you pay, and making you pay could cost you a game", James said. Kerr said Iguodala will warm up before the game prior to the decision being made. Durant was the only Warrior to eclipse 11 points, as point guard Steph Curry shot 3 of 16 from the field and shooting guard Klay Thompson scored 10 just points.

Now, let's be honest, there's not many people at this point giving the Cavs a chance to recreate themselves, and give the Warriors much of a series; however Brown has a message for all those people, and he's not afraid to share it.

"They hit big shots", Cleveland coach Ty Lue said of the Warriors as he sat in a press conference after the game.

The streets of Cleveland are buzzing in anticipation of magic from their favourite son LeBron James.

Perkins spoke - in his own unique way - about Durant in the wake of his 43-point Game 3 performance.
